Introducing Studio b.

by Matt on May 4, 2009


My class at studio b. has been postponed. Check back shortly for updates.

Ok, I’m trying to contain my excitement about this upcoming project but I can’t, I just can’t! It’s called Studio b. and it’s the brainchild of Colleen Duffley, photographer and image-maker extraordinaire. After 25 years of shooting people, places and gorgeous things all around the world she’s decided to embark on a creative endeavor of the different kind. Studio b. is a creative venue that brings together the best of the best and the up and coming in the fields of photography, art, design, literature, food, and wine. It’s a big relaxed creative mixer and “a playground for the imagination” as she calls it.

There will be seminars, classes and inspirational lectures by some of the world’s most creative folks like India Hicks, Donna Hay, Paula Lambert, my pals William Smith and Pouke, Kim Sunee, and Simon Doonan, to name a few, all held in the beautiful location of Alys Beach, Florida. Just looking at the “classroom” space is enough to send this boy into a dreamy haze.

I’m particularly thrilled to be joining the line-up in September. While I haven’t worked out my lesson plan just yet (yes, there will be a pop quiz!) I’ll be teaching a class on blogging, photography, dorkiness and a few other secret topics dancing around my noggin. It’s currently scheduled for the end of September, I’ll have exact details for you very soon!


Studio b. kicks off its summer schedule with style maven India Hicks on June 5, 2009. Many of you may know her from Bravo’s Top Design (I’m a huge fan of her father David Hick’s design work) and if you’re interested in the schedule please make sure to check it out. My pal William Smith will be teaching a class as well and I’m sure it will be extra fabulous.

I’ll post updates as the schedule firms up and I’ll also nag Colleen for photos of events to share with you. Hope to see you at Studio b. in September!
