Today I did a commercial photography shoot here in Rochester, Minnesota, over at the all-new Workshop Barbers, which is located inside the new Workshop Food Hall on Third Avenue SE. This place is going to incredible once it’s complete and opens up this spring. It will feature several food venues, a bar, the Workshop Barbers, DJ nights, live music, shuffle board, pool, karaoke, bingo, trivia nights and a large outdoor game/patio space. I’m not sure if you’d consider this a hospitality photography shoot exactly, but I’m going with that for blog purposes. I’ll be going back once the place is complete to capture the food, dining area, and so on.
