Who are you and what do you do?
Jon Reid.   I do commercial & architectural photography for a living and I’m always working on personal documentary projects. I’m also a member of Australian documentary collective MAPgroup.

What are you doing in your space?
It’s primarily an office space & where I will do all my post-production. There is also a photographic studio, for occasional commissioned product photography or some portraiture. We are also building a darkroom which is good as I’ve always maintained an analog photography practise.

Tell us about the space – what was its previous use? Anything unique about it? Your response to the space?
I don’t know what the space was before. Several different things I think.
