Inside Real Studios: Marta Schmidt Fotografia

Today we're peeking inside the studio of Marta Schmidt (of Marta Schmidt Fotografia):

Where, and in what kind of space, is your studio located?
Las Rozas, Madrid, Spain, Residential

Square footage
440

How long have you been there?
2 years

What makes your studio special?
The fact that it has so much light and it feels so open the moment you go inside. It doesn't even have a ceiling; it goes up to the second floor that I use as my living room.

How has it helped your business?
Clients say that the space really shows who I am and it makes them feel as if they know me already. They also say that my photography style and the decor really match. I love the space because there is usually room for the whole family, and they feel comfortable enough to leave things around and the kids that are waiting can play in another area.

Do you have any tips for opening a studio?
Study the light. It really makes a difference and how you use that light will define your style. Try to have furniture that helps you keep things organized and makes it easy to put everything back into it's place quickly after use, but display some of the nice things you use in your photos (hats, blankets, props).

What products do you sell the most?
Portraits on wood and framed image collections.

If you answered "yes" to any of the above, you're not alone and there IS a solution:In-Person Sales. There's no limit to how much more money you can make by providing IPS instead of online sales or shoot & burn. Or how many hours you'll save because you'll be able to shoot fewer sessions to generate the same revenue. Or how many hours of sleep you'll get because you won't be worrying about money.

The iPhone camera is an incredibly powerful tool. After learning a few basics, you can start practicing your own skills with what I like to call a “creative exercise régime.” First of all, l always hold my phone horizontally with two hands. I form a "C" with my left thumb and forefinger and tuck the phone into it so it rests on my hand with my middle finger holding it up along the back. Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.

This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
