Majer Metal Works Studio
One of my mini-joy in life is to observe people who are passionate about their work. To see creation happen from concept, design, process, then to final execution–genesis. I had the pleasure of photographing Majer Metal Works (www.majermetalworks.com) at work and play.
I love being at their shop–sound of machinery, the grinding smell, sparks flying like fireflies. Not to mention the people there are super cool to hang out with. It’s primitively and intellectually beautiful to see things created with one’s hand–simply handsome.

Working with Jiho is a unique experience. He is an extremely engaged photographer and he works very hard to capture the most compelling images that a particular subject might provide. He doesn’t hold back, but he is also very particular, and the result is images with both quality and dynamism. His work ethic is impressive and his care in treating people never falters. In addition to shooting images of work going on in our studio, he has taken images of completed work both after and during installation. In all circumstances he has successfully engaged the people in the environment, making the process of shooting a difficult object in a busy place a special event rather than an imposition, and the results are visible in the quality of his work.
I would recommend Jiho for any project-his attention to the subject is just as careful when shooting a person, an inanimate object, even a pile of tools in a messy studio, and his kind-directness makes working with him so easy.
