New York, New York www.ianspanier.com “Danskin Ballet” Third Place – Commercial “I love the challenge of working on location. I shoot in the studio a good amount – but find the role of problem solving when in an environment is more exciting. This includes making a studio on location. There’s something very satisfying in creating a mood through lighting that doesn’t exist in reality.” ASMP: Can you provide some background on your winning photo? Ian…
