Steven Forster says of the new launch.

"I've been very exclusive about my work and of my image for over 40 years; I've only ever shown publicly in art galleries. But, I've been itching for a broader adventure. So, I took some time off, traveled, seasoned my points of view and came to this fabulous opportunity. It's really about time that I've gone into business for myself, and partnering with Jake Huntr is just awesome! His forward thinking ideas and no limits attitude is just very inspiring and we keep going. Let me say this, too, yes yes yes all of the work is absolutely available to purchase! Jake and I invite you to visit the new site https://www.forsterhuntr.com and explore, shop, see what we're all about. "

Jake Huntr says, " I have always worked outside of the box. It's not a straight line for me, I think it's about going in the directions that brings you to a more centered place of ones self. Steven and I make a good team, he is the grounded one and I tend to be the one with the "lets go for it, ideas"! Whether we take on one of a kind photographs, building skyscrapers or we produce a hit movie...we have fun, we love what we do and the work we put out is something everyone can get behind."
