Today we take a peek inside the mobile airstream office of Moxie Photography Studio.

In what kind of space (and where) is your studio located? It's a commercial space in San Antonio, Texas.

Square Footage:
224

How long have you been there?
2 years

What makes your studio special?
We find ourselves on location about 80% of the time. We have always wanted to bring our studio with us. So finally we did. We created a custom studio out of a vintage '66 Airstream. It is complete with a 65" inch TV to tether to or show our images as well as full electrical capability on the inside and outside to run our studio lights if need be. The back has a dressing room and get ready area and every square inch of the trailer was built to maximize storage for our props and what nots. We can play music inside and outside from our iPad or iPhone and have a small refrigerator for cool drinks! All of the interior inside are different textures of white leather, including the walls.

How has it helped your business?
It's unique, which has garnered a lot of publicity. Also, now instead of dressing and getting ready in a crammed car...everyone can comfortably relax on a location shoot. And of course, it's really hot in San Antonio and this provides a cool spot for in between shots.

What products do you sell the most?
We sell a lot of canvas prints and albums.

Do you have any tips for opening a studio?
Don't jump into it because you think it will bring more business. We have a new office that is part warehouse part office. We can park our airstream in the storage area and then office out of the other area when we are not on location. We used to have a super nice downtown loft which we loved, but it was jut not feasible since we only do a limited amount of shooting indoors. Today is all about maximizing your dollars. Our new setup works for us. SO when finding a space you have to choose what works for you. Maybe its location, maybe its proximity to your home or family.

Do you have a great space you would like to share with our community? We would love to hear from you and possibly peek into your world. Simply visit this link and we will guide you through the quick submission process. *We spy The Successful Studio's Workflow Assistant in their studio!

I am beyond grateful I get to photograph intimate destination weddings and elopements all over the world. Besides traveling for photography work, exploring new places with my husband has become a big part of our marriage and something we want to continue for the rest of our lives. My husband’s grandparents are our biggest idols. They have spent over 50 years married, traveling the world together, continuing to explore new places together. Their passion for traveling has led them to occasionally taking their entire family on vacation, most often to an exotic beach of their choice; a tradition we hope to be able continue one day in their honor.

From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.

My business goals have changed a lot over the last few years. This year, my hope is to work on a handful of commercial projects with companies I believe in, and to carve out more time to work on personal projects. Both are important, but I believe growth and your creative voice is developed when you let your imagination run free without the constraints of it being “work.”
