Studio location needed soon!
I have been doing photography (newborn, maternity, family etc) for some time now, travelling to clients homes and from a home studio (I am South Wales location). The home studio is soon to be gone, and I need to get into an actual studio space, in order to continue doing my photography. whilst doing all of this I am raising a family of 5 children and helping with a grandson.
My middle daughter is an Ulcerative colitis suffer and has many hospital trips and treatments, so for me going back into a normal 9 - 5 job is not currently an option and Photography, gives me the flexibility to continue doing what I truly love (creating beautiful memories for my customers) and being able to be there for all of my children when they need me.
Getting a studio space has been a dream for a few years now, but getting together the funds to put rent down is proving much harder than anticipated when currently my earrings are covering my household bills and business bills only. I am looking to do 6 months up front, to allow me to set up properly and get the clientele in. I already have a fairly good client base an want to expand and gain foot traffic, in order to move forward in to bigger and better things, to be able to open the doors to opportunity for others, and look to employ a couple of like-minded people, all whilst providing my family with the essentials they need and showing my children, that hard work and determination really does pay off in the end.
Here is a little slideshow to give you an idea of what I do. and want to continue doing.
Ideally, I would love to be able to find (I am currently talking to a few commercial properties owners) and be ready to move into somewhere during this summer July / August time.
I want to keep everything local, as I am able to be close to family and also provide my local base with this service. keeping money within the community (so to speak)
I try to source several of the products I provide locally, including canvas supplier, cake maker, and I handcraft several products myself but would love to be able to offer this portion up to someone up and coming in the near future.
Any amount donated would be a godsend right now, as currently without the funding I am looking at losing a business that I have worked extremely hard to build. I have a huge passion for what I do and hope one day to pass it on to someone else that shares my passion.
