The Winter Solstice and New Years seasons are one of the few holidays actually honored by the unspoken industry code which controls the working calendars of most creative professionals, allowing a rare and necessary respite from demanding clients and long workdays, and much needed catch-up time with family and friends.
Still, after the first few days of eating, talking, eating, gift-giving, eating and general merry-making with my family, I always start to go a little stir crazy, as my sister and I slip back into our pre-adolescent roles, one step above hair pulling, and my grandfather starts to reiterate stories he’s delivered a couple dozen times that week. At these moments, when you start considering creative ways to end it all with a turkey baster, that I find it’s most opportune to grab some gear and head on a walk, for a little artistic experimentation. Just as the solstice and New Year have come to symbolize renewal, it’s a great chance to take stock in your work and see how you can improve and reinvent your photography and filmmaking oeuvre.
This holiday season, we want to extend no less than three specials to allow you to do just that. If you want to go all in, you can get almost two weeks for the price of one, picking up Thursday, December 20th after 4:30 and returning Wednesday, January 2nd before 9:30. For more specific time frames we’re offering two five day rentals for a weekend rate: our Christmas Special starts December 20th, with returns due the 26th, and the second opportunity running December 27th through January 2nd.
So with so many options to choose from, take this opportunity to renew your creative vision for the New Year!
