Our New Photography Studio.
I thought I’d share with everybody, the exciting work involved in building a new photography studio. Hopefully this will be of interest to friends and clients as well as my fellow photographers (many who are good friends) and particularly those photographers who may be thinking of doing similar themselves?
Work started on converting the detached garage and gym into our new photography studio on Wednesday this week. With the new larger shed/workshop installed over the weekend, the garage was emptied on Wednesday in readiness for our contractors to commence with the main works. The main work requires the raising of the internal ceiling, to give enough height for studio lighting. Unfortunately the roof construction consists of trusses and meant that we had to put two large steel beams (6.5m long) to support the rafters and two smaller beams are going in over the doors as well. Once all the steelwork has gone in then the existing ceiling joists can be cut out and new ones installed in a much higher position.
Then its on to plasterboarding, getting my tools out to put the lighting and power back in that I had to strip out earlier. Hopefully the gas boiler that used to heat the Koi pond will be suitable to hang some radiators off, to heat what will be the new photography studio – Fingers crossed.
