One thing I've learned from these photos is that the average room size in the US is MUCH bigger than the average size room in the UK! :lol:


I own a DSLR, some lenses and some lights.

Well at least your not living in Japan which probably has the smallest rooms of any country. If you had a place over there I think it would be impossible to create a studio unless you lived within it.

Just moved into my 500 sq. ft. studio space that I'm renting on the cheap from a business contact. I need some suggestions on decor and placement. The small area at the very left is 7' x 9', the duct work (my main complaint) is 4' x 9'. The area behind that (the corner) is 9' x 9' and I intend on using it for a client meeting area.

Feel free to drop your ideas/suggestions on how to best utilize this space. I've got a budget of ~$1000 for non-photography items. I've got a decent amount of lighting and modifiers, and I'm going to order a wall-mounted backdrop holder. I've got Thunder Grey and intend on ordering a black and a white as well, unless I can learn to better control my light spill.

Here's my studio at work, Rothman Furniture a large furniture retailer in St. Louis. The studio is in the warehouse, and all of the lights are CFL constant-lights in various soft boxes. sorry for the cell-phone shot.

some DIY flats could help out a lot, cost hardly anything, and don't take up much space. you can make them 2-sided black and white to act as large flags or reflectors. What kind of shooting do you plan on doing in there; portraiture, product, or what?

My humble loft. It serves as a play area for my girls during the day and a studio space at night.

Good idea on the DIY flats! I am in need of flags for sure - and my only reflector is a collapsible round 5-in-1.

I hope to start doing more serious portraiture and have already begun product photography. Right now, my aim is to create a comfortable & inviting area to meet my clients and show my work. I'm sub-letting the space from a local Real Estate Stager (who I shoot regularly for) and we plan on running many co-marketing days where I provide headshots for Realtors at a discounted rate (cluster shoot) and they showcase their staging abilities.

I'd like to start doing modeling work with a slight fashion edge but am intentionally staying away from nudes and boudoir as I edit most of my images at home and have kids.

if you're doing small product stuff, I don't see a product table anywhere other than that big wooden one. I would get something very flexible, or even a couple different styles of tables and surfaces you can swap out.
some big pieces of marble/tile/lexan/plex​iglass with various surface finishes and colors would be good to keep a stockpile of for backgrounds, also.

Here's my studio space. I wish it was about 5' wider, but I've got just about all the depth and height I need!
