A production house for multimedia and branding work
It all started when…
Ten10 Studios is the creative umbrella of the visual artist and photographer Jesse Winter. A production house for multimedia and branding work as well as a photography studio where Jesse captures portraits of business people, performers, actors, musicians and brands. "First of all it’s my HQ. I wouldn’t have it without if it wasn’t for my wife Melissa. It’s a creative space and building but it’s also an organism all it’s own, it had a life before me, it can become a work of art or a place to work on art. It’s also an idea and brand and concept. Within it’s walls is a space for accessing the spirits which relate to us from beyond the physical and into the meta physical. It’s also a place to store my stuff and listen to music”.
Jesse Winter is a visual artist rooted in portraiture in a realm of applications including interiors and architecture and documentray. His list of clients includes Bloomberg, NBC, Ralph Lauren, Wall Street Journal, Esquire, Vibe, Discover, Nature and part of Jesse’s work had been published in The New York Times, New York Magazine and PDN.
"Since I was a child I used to draw and was inspired by a particular artist for MAD magazine called Sam Viviano. I loved his style”, Jesse tells. Soon he started writing scripts for theatre and became obsessed with Cinema. "I got a camera in college when I was studying literature and started photography then but most of my life has been driven by the creative spirit consuming or producing it”.
Jesse’s works honors both the exceptional and notorious people as well as the silent and unknown. “I’ve had the opportunity to photography some exceptional people and I’ve had the chance to share with strangers and good friends alike. I’m most proud of the things I’ve done for no reason other than to follow my heart but also when I’ve made an image someone cherishes enough to put own their wall or display in a personal space. I have the opportunity to give someone something so unique and personal that it will exist in a singular way in their life without imitation”, Jesse explains. "Photography fulfilled my need to create and connect to new people and places. Art is especially important in the human experience to enable people understand each other, build empathy, and learn what is sublime in this existence both visual and non-visual”.
