Dos and don’ts of setting up a portrait studio
Be realistic about the space that you will need for both the studio and other essential areas when choosing a location for your studio.
Look at other studios in the area, as there’s no point setting up close to another studio unless you can offer something unique or different to its services.
Consider whether the location you are considering is suitable and convenient for both you and potential clients.
Set up a studio at home without checking the planning and tax implications of running a business in a residential area.
Underestimate how much time it will take to set up a studio.
Forget that you may need someone to staff the studio or reception area if customers are likely to drop in on spec.
