Construction on the new studio officially began today! We are more than excited to get this rolling and finished by fall. Planning for the studio started for me back in November. I have space to work in, but we are growing at a nice pace, and we've been limited as to what we can provide. The new space will have enough room for a show area, office, and a studio. It will also have a full 'ground floor' area for more office/studio space as it becomes needed. The studio is just one part of an overall strategy of growth. We are branching out to larger areas than weddings, and even photography. By fall we will be making a very big announcement that will majorly expand our reach and services. I've been doing a lot of thinking about the future of the 'small' photography business over the last year or so. As photography equipment becomes better and better, the equipment is also becoming more and more affordable. Good or bad, this has flooded the market with 'photographers'. Some are good, some, not so much. :) What does this mean for the career photographer, and especially the wedding photographer? It means that good is no longer good enough. It means you must be great. It means you must continue to push into your art, master your craft, and consistently deliver 'wow' images; all while giving the client the best experience possible during and after the shoot. Our goal is to deliver awesome images faster and better than anyone else. We are working hard at this goal, and are trying to improve our turn around times. The extra space the studio will provide, will allow us to expand our services, and, hopefully, our team.
Well, below are a few photos from what the guys did today. :)
