What are the works at photo studio?
Photo studios are workspaces set up expressly for the purpose of taking pictures. They can be as small as a corner in someone’s house with a white sheet hung up to create a backdrop, or they can be large buildings full of different props and backgrounds. Whatever the case, they provide a controlled environment that allows photographers to get perfect shots every time.
Regardless of how large or small the studio is, it must have staff that can handle customer service, as well as any other responsibilities required to operate the business. In the smallest studios, the photographer or assistant may serve as receptionist, but larger studios often have dedicated customer service employees that are trained to answer questions, schedule sessions and take payments over the phone or in person.
Studio space also needs to be equipped with equipment for editing and printing photos. This can include a darkroom, a digital lab, and a lighting studio. In addition, the studio should have a space where photographers can store their equipment, props and backdrops. This can be a closet or a separate room.
In addition to providing a controlled environment for photographers, studios can also offer workshops and classes for both historic and contemporary darkroom and photography processes. These workshops can teach traditional printing techniques such as platinum/palladium, cyanotype, salt print and wet plate; photographic processes like stippling, photo collage, photo transfer and montage; or topics such as portraits, still life, abstraction, and composition.
