Today we're peeking inside the studio of Suzanne Puttman of Click by Suzanne:
Where, and in what kind of space is your studio located?
I have a residential space in Portland, Oregon
How long have you been there?
What makes your studio special?
It is a detached space off our main house. It has a very clean, comfortable feeling with all the amenities that a studio needs. A couch and seating for clients, a changing table, lots of layout space, a bathroom and lots of shelves for props and blankets. The original garage wood is one of a kind and over 75 years old!
How has it helped your business?
It has been a huge selling point. I have everything clients need; they don't need to bring a thing...except a well fed happy baby that is!
Do you have any tips for opening a studio?
Just do it! It takes a couple of years to acquire all the fun little details that will make it your own. We have built all the shelving over time, added furniture when I could afford it and then found a table that would be long enough to fit the South facing wall. Word of mouth is huge in letting future clientele that you have a nice, clean, and safe studio. It has been a blast!
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.
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.
