I have a studio! (I actually got 2 months ago)
When I first entered there was a nasty, old, office looking grey carpet which I immediately tore up. Underneath was this amazing wooden floor. It needed a lot of cleaning but I spent a few days on it and got it to a point that I was happy with.
I then brought in the kit I have been building up over the years. It is amazing for me that I am fortunate enough to be in this position at this stage of my career. It will benefit me hugely while finishing off my degree and photographing for my new small business, Horolograph.
I then spent the next week painting the floor black and filling it up with the essential furniture that I needed, a desk, a table to shoot products on and some other small bits.
It's also amazing how quickly it gets messy during a shoot.
