This thread is very inspiring not only for Senior portraits but photographing people in general. Special thanks to Jay for posting his studio. The marketing ideas here are priceless.
Recently having lost my 'normal' income and while trying to get my part time business of 28 yrs to full time (not photography), I have been converting my old back yard office into a studio. Slow process with now limited income. It is 14'x 24' and I can add another 12' onto the end. I thought this would be way to small but was going to try to make it work.
5 weeks ago I started to take photographing people seriously, I mean other than family and friends. I did a couple model workshops where the models ranging from age 16-20 showed enough appreciation for my images to be excited to work together again. After browsing local and surrounding area finished products, and irritated with the cheap auto enhancing post processing software they use, I figured I'd give it a shot.
A few of my samples.
Renewed enthusiasm for finishing the studio!
