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
How long have you been there?
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.

My husband and I craved some sun and sand for our honeymoon. We wanted to go on an adventure together, to come back with an awesome experience and not go on a “standard" honeymoon. We were able to settle on Cuba.
The turquoise waters of the Bahamas, the dramatic Rocky Mountains, the vistas of Iceland- endless romantic images pop into our minds when we think of destination weddings. And that is why, almost every wedding photographer at some point wants to give them a go.
So we’re going to tell you how to find them, book them, and prep for them.
The formula is simple.
clients you love + photography you are excited about + doing it your way = happy photographer
We think a shift should be made in photography. A happiness shift. You likely got into photography because you love taking photographs. And then the reality of making a living at it started to creep in, and you became bound to jobs you didn’t really want to do, because you needed the money. We’ve been there, and yep, it stinks.
