Steven Forster says of the new launch.
"I've been very exclusive about my work and of my image for over 40 years; I've only ever shown publicly in art galleries. But, I've been itching for a broader adventure! So, I took some time off, traveled, seasoned my points of view and came to this fabulous opportunity!
Jake Huntr says, " I have always worked outside of the box. It's not a straight line for me, I think it's about going in the directions that brings you to a more centered place of ones self. Steven and I make a good team, he is the grounded one and I tend to be the one with the "lets go for it, ideas"! Whether we take on one of a kind photographs, building skyscrapers or we produce a hit movie...we have fun, we love what we do and the work we put out is something everyone can get behind."
