Louis Quattrini  SAYRE, PA
Hey guys, 
My name is Louis Quattrini. I am a single father of two terrific teenage girls. I have been a musician, illustrator and photographer for over half my life. 
I enjoy capturing images of the beauty of this world, creating stunning one of a kind images/photo-art for high school seniors and more than anything, sharing my knowledge with others through photo-walks, tutorials, and inspiring others to create art.
My photography partner and I had a small humble studio in 2013 for about a year when he decided to pursue teaching and I went through my divorce. 
Since then I attempted to focus my creativity on travel photography and participate in art shows and galleries.
I have decided to, in addition to travel and landscape photography, refocus my creativity on high end portraiture, concept art and photo composites.
I am looking to build a new studio in my area utilizing the newest in high tech lighting, wireless-remote firing, custom backdrops, waiting area, and gallery in this new studio complete with workstations for post processing tutorials and education as well.
I am looking for a start up cost of $25,000 dollars to achieve my goal of providing a high end portraiture, product and concept art and photography studio as well as providing the tools and needs to promote instructional and tutorial sessions and workshops for future generations. 
My goal is to provide a working studio for pros and amateurs alike through sharing, networking and learning. A place to teach and provide a place to practice lighting techniques, skilled instructors, guest speakers and a gallery for all to display their work.
I will be giving out cool stuff for different pledge levels !!

$25- Will recieve a 5x7 matted signed and personalized print as well as a 10 % off discount for any item, photoshot or tutorial good for 1 year.

Still praying for more backers and supporters to make this happen. I'm giving it 3 more months then suspending my campaign and figure out the next step to get others great creative education. I've been offering more private tutorials lately but my goal is to open a nice high end studio for local photogs to use, a learning station with pc's loaded with all the best editing tools, guest speakers and instructors and a gallery where anyone who uses the space can share and sell their work. I want to teach, inspire others, and instill passion for photographic art of all levels in our community, especially students !! I've sent out all pledge rewards and now looking to kick this up a notch again. Please consider and share at the very least. This is a win win for our community. Thank you

Worked with a great group of musicians and other photogs this weekend. Let's build this to teach, inspire and help others grow and find their own unique path to creativity. It is a rewarding experience and challenge. Please pm me with any questions or thoughts on art, creativity, feeling stuck in a rut or even throwing in the towel. We've all been there. Lets make this community studio learning center/ and gallery a reality. Slowly growing in support. Not giving up.
