Photography: Matthew Selvagn
Everyone in the industry knows how hard it is to find a good studio that isn’t expensive as fuck. That’s why we like to shoot at The Nine. With two locations in Brooklyn and Soho, The Nine is revolutionizing the industry with a membership-based program and a DIY feel—except unlike a lot of so-called DIY shit holes, The Nine has everything top of the line.
“I saw a huge gap in the industry,” explaines The Nine co-founder Charlie Himmelstein. “Up-and-coming photographers, and even established ones, had no place to call home besides the street and shooting in their own apartments—only the most elite that had every single job commissioned had great studios to shoot in. So, I decided to bridge that gap.”
Partnering up with photographer Matthew Selvagn, the duo created a space where photographers, designers and the girls from PUMPS Bar Brooklyn can call home. But don’t take our word for it—learn more about The Nine here, and check out some photos from the recent PUMPS shoot, above.
