     We have been very busy and have been making a lot of improvements at Westlight Studios the past few months. We are getting ready for our first Franklin Art Crawl. Our canvas prints are in the process of being made at Damico gallery and Framing . I checked the proofs today and they are spot on.  Please come by on November 7th 2014 and 7 pm.
     We have had several high profile photographers and artist shoot at Westlight in the past 6 months.

This past week , Mercy Me shot a video at Westlight. Cant wait to post it on our out takes pages.
      Today we painted the studio West wall a beautiful shade of gray. Here is a time-lapse movie that Daniel Williams made of the process.

Franklin Tennessee, Westlight Studios has made major improvements to the East and West studios. The East studio has new walls and lounge area. Made from recycled cedar posts, there is a cedar block wall painstakingly made cut by cut and place in to place. The wall measures 10 ft high and 8 ft wide, soon to be expanded to 10x10 . The steel wall measures 8 x 10 and is made for collected old steel panels used in a George Jones album cover I did for George in 1998. This steel had been used in many ways in the my studios since. It has been a dressing room wall and floor but always makes a great backdrop.
Inspired by Hope Park Church , we made a pallet wall 14 ft high and 20 ft wide. It makes a great lounge area and backdrop for photos and videos. Westlight will soon be adding a 15x14 ft corner cyc wall in the east and west studios.  These cyc walls will be perfect for video and still shoots.

Sparkman High School photo class has field trip to Nashville and Westlight Studios for a third trip. Erick Mittman is a fine instructor who has a passion for teaching his students photography.
I am very surprised every time how much these 
high school student know about photography. The new student on Canon AE1 and Pentax K1000 film cameras and advanced on digital. I heard a large group outside the Westlight studio in the Nashville location and went out to see what was going on. They said they were a high school class taking a field trip to Nashville, so I invited the teacher and students in to see the studio and play with some of the lights we use and make. I talk to them about the business, gear and my experience as a photographer.
It feels good to open Westlight to the future photographers
