Studio vs Location Portrait photography

Always the big question for a photographer who is starting in business is if to work from home or have a studio. You can save money and simplify things by working on location, either locally or at the house of your client.

The latter is potentially risky since you never quite know what you might be working with and you could find yourself in cramped surroundings with little room for manoeuvre. Remember not every home set up for family comfort is ideal for photography.



The alternative is to either invest in your own studio or to hire a studio as and when you need it. If you're starting out on a budget the latter option might have some merit but there is no guarantee that it will be available exactly when you need it.

A business plan will help you determine the viability of investing in your own studio.

Convention testimonials This year's Convention will have a very positive impact on my business and I just know that I will be ready for more next year. I'm on a journey to a very nice place, it will take a while to get there and the hills are very steep. Get there I will and your input will have played a big part in the successes that lie ahead.
