Following the finish of our December photography courses eight graduates will be opening studios of their own early in the new year.
Elaine is visiting three this week who, have already earmarked premises, to advise on suitability and layout. Studios do not have to be large, neither do they have to have a high street presence. About 500 to 750 square feet is about right with rents in the region of £6,000 to £7,000.
It is usually possible to negotiate a rent free period, and a break clause after one year. As a start up business there should be no rates to pay in the first year. To start a business always requires much more preparation than originally envisaged, but with Elaine and David on hand to help the whole process can be streamlined and made easier.
A further ten studios are scheduled for 2012.
