HUMANS

We are a team of creative young people who are driven by story.  We love meeting all types of people and embracing why we’re different.  At Ambivalence, we think that differences should be celebrated, and all voices deserve a microphone.

PHILOSOPHY + IDEOLOGY

Ambivalence Studios started in 2015.  It’s purpose wasn’t clear.  It’s action was taking photos.  Overtime, it became clear that the reason that Ambivalence existed and what made Ambivalence a new type of photography company was two things.  The experience of Ambivalence Studios was so human.  Clients felt comfortable.  They felt that they could be themselves in front of the camera in a way that they never had before.  The Ambivalence Studios experience also consisted of a passive interaction that made great change.  Listening.  Ambivalence listened to clients in a way that other studios did not.  We heard the stories.  The struggles.  The triumphs.  That’s our drive.  To hear the stories of as many people as we can, and to make people feel like they can be themselves.  We do this by creating content, regardless of medium, that tells stories and makes people feel genuine emotions.  We’ve decided that photography and film are not the boundaries.  We are ready to break the glass ceilings.  Are you?
