home studio photography

 Trying to figure out where to hold client meetings? It's debate that most photographers go through, and there are no easy answers. On the one hand, if you have the space in your home to meet with clients, there are certainly advantages to that, but there are many drawbacks as well, as anyone who does client consultations in their home will tell you. I've done  both, so I can share with you the pros and cons of each option.

Home Studio Pros:

  • When you have appointment no-shows, at least you're still home!
  • Tax write-offs! Any space in your home that is 100% dedicated to business is eligible for a tax write-off.
  • No commute.
  • No overhead costs of a rented space.
  • You control the environment: the temperature, the wall art, the noise level.
  • Your artwork up on the walls.
  • You can add lots of warmth and cozy touches-soft music, candles, wine.
