Meet the Maker is a new series of features highlighting some of the most amazing makers across the North Shore! We will be featuring a handful of new makers every Monday to hopefully help mitigate the added financial strain that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the creative community. Follow along on Instagram and Facebook as well!
Meet Marte Media
Marte Media, operated by Henry Marte, offers a variety of photography services, ranging from the traditional to the not so traditional. They’re based in Lowell, MA and provide photography services to Boston, the North Shore, and surrounding areas.
What inspires you to make and create?
Storytelling, there’s a story in everything about life. I love telling that story through visuals, whether it’s through photography or video.
Roughly how much are you expecting in losses over the next month?
I haven’t sat down to crunch the numbers yet because of how depressing it is. It’s a significant number, easily thousands in the short term. Who knows long term at this point.
What measures are you taking to reduce lost revenue?
I just upgraded my Squarespace website to a commerce one, so I can create gift cards. I listed them at a discount, in hopes people will buy them. My next step is setting up art prints through my Pixieset site. Where people can order prints and a printing company takes care of the printing and shipping part.
