Tips to Help You Find the Right Photography Studio Space to Rent
Updated: Feb 9, 2019
Are you looking to up your portrait, fashion, or product game but are running out of space in your home? Maybe you are on the cusp of having a steady stream of clients but small droughts here and there have you worried about signing a lease for more space. Or perhaps you are curious about what you could do with some professional equipment and a dedicated space? Renting photography studio space is often a perfect solution for any of these situations and more.
What do you need in a photography studio?
Some studios have all the gear you would ever need; C-Stands, professional strobes and modifiers, and a gaggle of backdrops. Others will give you a heated space and an outlet, that’s all. Your first step before renting a space is to figure out just what you need. Having a list of items you require will help you in the next phase (searching for your studio) as you file through website after website (or not)!
If you are only showing up with a camera, you’ll need to make sure the studio has it all. But if you like your strobes (yes, you can use a typical camera flash, with or without modifiers, in a studio) maybe you only need a dry space with a variety of backdrops.
