What do Sanders, Dexter, Quincey, Mr. Fred & have in common? They shoot kids, and they are looking to shoot even more of them. No, they are not being arrested by area police, but rather spending quality time with students enrolled into 2014 Summer Intensive Arts Education & Technology Institute (SIAETI) in New Haven, CT working with extremely talented students from all over.
Local photographers plug in each Monday to make sure PIMOSH students receive the absolute best in professional photo-shoots. A different photographer is enlisted each week and this is the line-up for 2014. Shoots range from make-up & tattoo session to computer lab, to the library, and onto the playground. Either way, students get exposed to both professional photography and experience in working with industry folks.
Patrice Sanders has been shooting since around 17. Her younger sister was transitioning from life to death right before her eyes and she wanted to document the process, so she asked for and received a camera from her MOM on a Tuesday - by Thursday, she had a camera and her sister died. Patrice from Sanders Studio is sought after by many local and national entertainment artists to shoot them just as she has shot the children in New Haven.

Quincey Jones, from CMQ Productions was only dreaming of photography when the doors opened for him. He reports his most exciting moment was filming French Montana in concert up close & personal, and the worst was shooting a lightening bolt that showed up blurry and found trouble capturing it again. This didn't stop him though - he continued on his path and the rest is history.
