It is a good thing that Haley left her job this year because I have been very busy! We are developing our basement into a portrait studio and office.
The construction has been going very well. Our carpenter, Curtis Hnidan, has been amazing at bringing everything together. He and his father Les have done all of the framing. Curtis has also helped us get our other trades. If you have a development that you want to do, give us a call and we will put you in touch.
Here are some pictures of the development. There will be more very soon. I just figured everything out with constructions permits and everything has passed inspection so far so now the construction is going fast!
This is the view from our studio to where our office will be. The room is an open concept with enough room for two backdrops and an area where we can have another set. It is very versatile. One of the reasons that we bought the house is that the ceilings in the basement are nine feet high which gives us good headroom to place lights above our subjects. Also, we have two areas to shoot from that are quite long. One is 34 feet and the other is 29 feet. This allows us to take pictures with a long lens, giving us more flattering pictures of our subjects than are possible in a smaller studio.
Keep coming back, I will be posting pictures with the drywall up by next week. I’m looking forward to covering up the pink walls .
