Segal: The main inspiration behind Under One Roof: From Bauhaus to Our House was my participation in the Fotofocus 2012 exhibit called Photographers by Photographers at XU’s AB Cohen gallery in which 60 Cincinnati photographers drew names out of a hat and created portraits of each other. Having been a photographer for thirty years, I’m fascinated by the creative process and particularly how photographers navigate creative careers.

Segal: I am the producer of Under One Roof: From Bauhaus to Our House and Scott Ginn and myself co-edited the video. Creative consulting by Jerry Malsh and Una Kariim.

Behind their 8,200 square foot urban façade, things happen at Arrasmith & Associates that defy belief – and they have the photos to prove it.

Arrasmith & Associates Photography


Located at 1050 East McMillan Street in East Walnut Hills near Eden Park, this 1912 Italianate style utilities building provides the canvas for producing the iconic imagery that Arrasmith & Associates has been creating for more than two decades.

Arrasmith & Associates is a Cincinnati-based commercial photography studio, specializing in highly conceptual imagery for advertising. As a full-service photo studio, principle owners Tony Arrasmith and his business partner Sarah O’Dell work to build and produce imagery. It is the usage of a fine background that aids in their ability to truly produce strong visually contemporary imagery.

“I concept the imagery, build the sets, shoot the photography and do all of the post-production work,” says Arrasmith. “Sarah is the business mind – she handles all of the client contacts, production, scheduling shoots and billing. This was our business model that we began in 1987 and it’s still working today. We’re still the same partnership that we were when we started.”

The importance of a strong image remains the same today, however, the approach to producing is a night and day difference from almost 30 years ago according to Arrasmith. “We have gone from analogue (film) to completely digital capture and photo illustration,” says Arrasmith. “As a result, deadlines have gone from days to hours because of the ability to instantly capture this imagery”.

“Thirty years ago there was no such thing as stock photography or the ability to download any imagery from a third party – a client needed an image,” Arrasmith continues. “Today that market has narrowed. You need to specialize and have a unique vision.”

At Arrasmith & Associates they do all of their own post-production – allowing them the flexibility to refine all of their imagery to the clients and meet fast paced advertising needs. “Besides the aforementioned response regarding our love for what we do, our passion is not only our profession, but our hobby,” says Arrasmith. “Many creatives have the talent to succeed, but the partnership between Sarah and myself is what separates us from other studios.”

Arrasmith also points out that nailing a concept for a client is what makes it all worthwhile. “What I love most about what I do is nailing a concept for a client and going the extra mile then seeing the response when they see the final image,” says Arrasmith. “I also love when I have a photo shoot and everything just works – when the talent is awesome and the subject is totally engaged.”

As for the impact that Arrasmith wants to have on Cincinnati, he hopes that years from now someone in advertising looks back on their body of work and it stands out as a style and vision on its own. “I want to continue making strong conceptual imagery and eventually transition into more video,” he says.
