Very cool. I'm jealous. All I've got is a light box set up in front of a bookcase. Nice work.

The shooting space isnt huge, still working out how best to use it. But the front of shop and meeting area I'm really pleased with!

Wow, that is some MEGA improvement! What did it cost to in the end to do all that work? You should've made a movie (home improvement; interior designer style) :p

Just curious why you didn't give yourself much space to shoot. You have plenty of room in the lobby area that I personally would have used to give more shooting area. I assume that little bitty cubby hole in the back where your light stand is where you shoot. It looks like it would be difficult to get anything more than waist up type of shots in there.

Sweet Darryn, well done, it looks awesome! where is this, in Manly? I too would like to know more on the shooting area you've got, I figure most of your shooting is location anyway, but still I'm interested to know about your limited space and what you're going to shoot, it just looks really small from the photos.

Wow, the sitting area looks great! Very welcoming and professional. I would also like to see the actual studio.

It was quite a lot, over A$50K. A lot, but the rent on the place is quite moderate and over the few years of the lease it will be cheaper to have done what I have.

Yeh it's not a lot at all, but I intend to do mainly kids and couples, nothing more than that. One of the aims of the studio was for a meeting area for my wedding clients. Wedding photography is my speciality.

I did look at a few different layouts, but was constrained by a structural column at the back of the space, and the width of the space as well.

That said, I can do a full length shot. Check out the photos in the gallery section on the studio website for some examples of what we've done so far: http://www.capturephot​ographystudio.com.au/p​hotographygallery.php (external link)

Yes right in the heart of Manly - a reason why I took a small space. Yes will do a decent amount of outdoor shoots for the portrait work, and weddings are obviously outside.

It's actually a vinyl plank, a fairly new product called Spacia. Was perfect for what we wanted, and a little better for cleaning and wear than a wood or laminate.
