Inside Real Studios: Marta Schmidt Fotografia

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.

Hi, I'm Casey, a floral and visual designer, specializing in creating stylized events and gatherings. More than that, I love putting together visuals for retail and residential spaces utilizing natural components and botanical elements. Serving as the Creative Director for PlantShed, a full service, floral boutique in Manhattan, I have worked closely with high fashion and couture designers, bespoke interior design firms, and textile companies to help produce cohesive and thoughtful designs. While typically inspired by nature and organic shapes, I enjoy experimenting with more structured design concepts, botanical textures, and other far-reaching design aesthetics. But I never really meant to live in New York City. I came here in 2011 to spend a summer and potentially expand my career as a floral designer. Landing odd jobs and working freelance in the industry was exciting and stressful at first, though I eventually found a home at PlantShed, a New York based floral and plant company. So, let me tell you about PlantShe

I started my photography career in 1990 and, as expected from a traditional film photographer, my career followed a familiar path that transitioned to shooting digital. What you might not expect is that I still embrace the traditional medium of film; in fact, it now lies at the heart of the images we create at Cooper Photography. I've encountered many milestones over the years, but what I could not have foreseen were the three notable changes that saw me move full circle:
