The Shutter Box Takes Selfies to the Next Level

June 24, 2020: The Shutter Box of Warren, the area’s first photography incubator and selfie studio, opens its doors to photographers, artists, and those just looking to take a selfie. The Shutter Box features about fifteen different settings which include the flower room, the Dunkin Donuts room and the optical illusion room.


Minnie Germano, manager of The Shutter Box, says a big part of why this business began was to give up-and-coming photographers and artists a platform to create without having to purchase expensive equipment. A section of the studio is set with professional backdrops and lights. Photographers are even able to rent a camera if they don’t have their own.


“There’s a lot of talent around here but some people just don’t have the facilities or resources to get their businesses up and going,” she says. “They don’t have to go buy an expensive camera, they don’t have to have all of this stuff. There’s somewhere where we want them to come to get their work out there and just be able to express themselves.”
