START WITH THE BASICS

When I made the decision to shoot out of my home, I first had to decide where I would set up the studio. I also want to add that the space I use for my studio is only about 150–200 square feet. Not a lot of space! I’m a big believer in keeping it simple to start and then adding more as needed, especially with gear and props. If you are a portrait photographer, you really only need a few options for backdrops and maybe some lighting. As you get more comfortable with your small space, then you can add more options to change it up. This is important to keep in mind if you don’t have a lot of storage, too. Keep it simple and rent items for specific photoshoots when needed. Also, try to keep the space clean and tidy as much as you can. Small spaces can feel overwhelming very quickly when they are cluttered. It’s important to me that the space looks neat and tidy when my clients arrive.
