Jeff operates his commercial photography studio, Jeff Adams Photography in the Mill Building located in Holliston, Massachusetts. Jeff has been working in the commercial photography business since 1995, on both the creative and production service side. He opened his own studio shortly thereafter and has built his business providing well produced and masterfully executed photographs that speak to his clients' target audience. The studio/production office occupies 1,200 sf of a former shoe factory built in the 1890s located 25 miles from downtown Boston. Jeff shoots advertising and marketing images for regional and national clients both in the studio and on location.
Along with products and people, Jeff has been working in the specialized field of architectural photography since 1996. His design and construction clients range from multinational firms to single practitioners. His work has won recognition in trade competitions and has been reproduced in numerous industry and consumer publications.
When not shooting for clients, Jeff can typically be found outdoors, enjoying time with his family and friends, in the woods, mountains, oceans and rivers of New England and beyond. More than likely, he has his camera with him.
Many of the images and collections available for purchase on this site were created alongside Jeff's pursuit of outdoor adventure and reflect the beauty, wonder and profound yet simple joy the natural world can provide.
So why Waterstreet Guild? Jeff tells it best.
I started Waterstreet Guild many years ago along with a friend and fellow photographer. We had both recently entered the business of photography, and we found our work (and personalities) paired well. We took on personal projects where we could work alongside each other, booked jobs on catalog shoots as 2nd shooters, and even made a trip to Sweden in 2001 to connect with another friend from New England School of Photography. (I still can’t believe that the Swedish Education Board funded that trip!)
As the years passed, our paths strayed, and it has been some time since I last spoke with my friend. A recent FaceBook post of a mutual friend showed he has returned to Italy, and from what I can tell, he looks happy and well at home.
For my own part, I continued to pursue a commercial arts career and opened my own studio, Jeff Adams Photography in the early 2000’s. The bulk of my work since that time has been a mix of catalog/product studio production and architectural & design photography. While traveling for assignments, or with scheduled or unscheduled downtime, I still reach for a camera when the light and scenery grab my attention.
I also strive to “assign” myself project from time to time, keeping the eye sharp and testing new ideas and techniques.
Waterstreet Guild has sat idle for the last decade. I would drop something new on the website every now and again, but I never really booked much time refreshing the site.
That is about to change.
Starting in June of 2019, Waterstreetguild.com has come to life as a full fledged art store with multiple archival printing options, custom matting and framing, and all with the backing of one of the most engaging art retail platforms I found in my search.
I hope you will join me for this new journey. Be sure to like this page, follow my Instagram page (FishyJeff) and connect on Twitter at @jadamsphoto.
With this new portal coming online, I have been revisiting my entire portfolio collection, seeking out the images that have continued to rise to the top as my personal favorites. I hope you like them too.
Look closely, and you just might see Aldo in the background.
