Are you a photographer looking for the perfect studio hire option for your next photoshoot? Hunting down the perfect space to bring your creative vision to life is not an easy task. To top it off, it can be quite time-consuming researching available spaces in Canberra and the ACT.
What to look for when hiring a studio
The top 5 things to ask and look for when hiring a photo studio are:
- Size: how much space will you need for your concept/project?
- Lighting Requirements: do you plan on relying on natural light or are you happy using artificial lighting?
- Equipment Requirements: can you bring your own? Can you hire some if you need extra pieces? How about audio?
- Prices: what are the rates per hour, taking hire time and size into consideration?
- Inclusions: are extra facilities or perks included in your hire?
