Levi’s recognizes that photography is absolutely a core component of a new era of creativity. Here’s proof: check out their newest project, The Levi’s Photo Workshop. It’s a community photography collaboration venue located in central Manhattan (18 Wooster St. btwn Canal and Grand). Think free studio space, free camera rentals (even vintage), and a collaborative workspace. Levi’s Joshua Katz says this project is…
“…a way for Levi’s to offer a unique experience based around creativity and learning. Levi’s wanted to celebrate the pioneering creative spirit of artists and craftspeople in a way that would also hopefully turn others on to a new craft. As one of the original American work wear brands…Levi’s has a long standing connection to craftspeople and the workshops reflect a 21st century take on American craft.”

This is so cool. does any one know if there is any thing like this in the uk?, and the vintage camera rental is so cool i will definitely be going there when i get stateside.
Sick post thanks Chase
It’s quite an impressive setup. I really like the camera rental section! It’s a great laugh!
Love this! I wonder if they have a Levi’s stylist available also? That’d be so great to be able to use their clothing, right there in studio, and shoot with your models of choice 🙂
its amasing . it is such a nice idea. its a new way of creativity.
That is amazing! When do they bring one to Seattle? *nudge nudge*
I really miss being able to easily collaborate and intermingle, try new things like that, and all accessibly.
