The Opening of Ottawa’s New “Union Eleven Photographers”

I attended the open house to a new photographic partnership this week. Andrew Geddes and Derrick Rice have joined their creative talents together into a new studio called Union Eleven Photographers. Having worked with both these guys- there can only be great things that will come out of this endeavor.

The new studio of Union Eleven Photographers is located at 619 Bank Street, beside The Flour Shoppe Cupcake Bakery. In fact, some of the delicious cupcakes were served at the open house. The studio has a wonderful open customer area. In the back, Andrew and Derrick share the editing room with multiple computers and screens. I can only imagine the bouncing around of ideas that will happen during the day.

The evening was very busy with over forty of Ottawa’s photographers, planners and other industry folks coming by to wish them well. What was originally billed as a 7pm-9pm didn’t end until 10pm because people were just so busy catching up with each other. I joked with Andrew and Derrick that it was a good thing that the other shop beside them was a gym so that they can go workout all those good eats from the cupcake bakery.

Best wishes to you both. I am sure we’ll see some awesome work come from this studio.
