As long as you are using the studio for paid work it shouldn't be hard to make a go of it. Supporting your own business and then renting it out when its not in use should put you in clover.

Cheers guys... Don't get me wrong... We do not have a "if we build it they will come" strategy.

We have done extensive market research and have carefully selected our location due to the demographic, competition, business rates etc... We also have quite a few business mentors behind us, we have not borrowed any money so we owe nothing,

We are also employing a very strict marketing strategy which is a 3 year strategy that will hopefully work...

A lot of time, effort and planning has gone into this very moment.. We have a great team ( I'm not a one man band on this ) and hopefully all will come good :)

Best of luck, I hope it's a great success!

(But if it is, don't open your next one near mine ;) )

I've seen this work very well. A nice studio like the one you're building also can make a lot of money during downtime by renting the studio space out, or renting out time on the equipment. This is good for smaller photographers who want to shoot at odd hours.

You'll figure out what the rates are, but at a minimum, it'll keep your operational cost down to 0.

Congrats, that's very exciting! And with the amount of research and planning it sounds like you've done, you should be very well-positioned.

Looks like you're also offering classes, good thought. There's a lot of people out there that want to learn how to take better pictures. I know, I am one and I know a bunch :)

Moving into a physical studio was one of the best things we have done for our wedding business, I highly recommend however that you use it to sell physical products that you would otherwise not be able to show if you were meeting in a starbucks.
