Laundrylux Laundromat - The Bronx

I know I say it a lot but I'll say it again.  I love referrals and repeat business.  This, to me, is so important.  This was the second laundromat shoot I've done now for Laundrylux which manufacturers commercial laundry equipment.  The first one was in Queens and this time I was in The Bronx to shoot a location that was just about to open.

I wish I would have counted the number of people that stopped by this location to ask, "Are you guys open yet?" while I was shooting this space.  It was impressive and there's obviously demand for it in the neighborhood.  The space is GIANT (as the name indicates), clean and new and ready for your laundry needs.

Pictured here was Jim.  He was my contact at this location and one of the owners of the space.  Super nice guy and I wish him all the success in the opening of this beautiful location.

I first shot this space last July, when it opened.  I was asked back to photograph the updates to the space.  Rupa, the owner, has remained very busy since she opened and the evidence is on the walls.  There are so many great pieces in this space that weren’t there before.  It's looking great!


There are two sides to the space.  What’s shown above are both sides of the studio.  There’s plenty of seating to accommodate large parties. More shots of the interior here...

It's not common for me to work in Photoshop however, for this exterior shot, I saw the potential in the original image.  We planned this shoot on a Sunday night as it was the most likely time when we wouldn’t have someone parked in front of the building.  We were both disappointed to see that there was one car was parked in front during the shoot.  I continued to shoot inside but the sun was starting to go down and the lighting was nice outside.  Clock was ticking.  I took some shots with the car in front just in case but fortunately, the owner of the car arrived and left.  I quickly snapped the shot on the left and cleaned it up to become the image on the right.
