In what kind of space is your studio located? Commercial

Square Footage: 900 How long have you been there? Since April 2014

What makes your studio special? We are right in the heart of Portland’s SE Division area (one of the most up-and-coming neighborhoods in the US), in the newly remodeled D Street Village. We love being tucked in the middle of Portland’s creative fray. This area is evolving and expanding more and more every day; there is non-stop construction and commotion, but the bounty of world class food and incredible coffee more than makes up for it — and keeps us powered up!

How has it helped your business? The Design Aglow Studio is lovely and open, with lots of ambient light and hardwood floors. The light, simplicity, and cheerful personality of the building make for a super creative and productive workflow… and a happy team. Our space allows for easy communication and creative dialogue — we’re always sharing thoughts and inspiration collectively. We get invigorated by far more than just photography — we are most inspired by culture and creative people, so it’s only fitting our office is in one of the most culturally up-and-coming neighborhoods in the country!

Do you have any tips for opening a studio? Be patient — it took us time to find this space, and while it wasn’t exactly what we were originally looking for, it’s perfect for us. Sometimes the best things in life are worth the wait!

What products do you sell the most? Our Shop has virtually anything and everything you could dream of to boost a professional photography business to greater success. From our best-selling photography books, our innovative business tools to our Frame Shop and Paper Shop, we love dreaming up the next big thing for photographers, while saving them time and money of course. We’re currently giving away our 10 favorite best-selling Marketing products on Pinterest in a fun #designaglowwishlist contest! Come along and join us.

About eight years ago, I was reading a recipe blog and somehow ended up on the blogger’s photography posts. I spent a ton of time going through her photography posts and just couldn’t stop thinking about how I had to give it a try too! My husband (who is amazingly supportive) got on board immediately and we bought a camera. From there, I read, practiced, and photographed family and friends, and it naturally spiraled into what it has become today.
