I work out of my house.
My work no longer fits inside my house.
In fact, it hasn’t for awhile.
My cramped quarters, and less than ideal set-up, affects my productivity dramatically.
When I first began working from home, I was working part time.
Now, I’m continually stressed out by my lack of space.
Also, people think it’s okay to interrupt me because I work out of my house.
After all, I’m HOME aren’t I?
I don’t have a solution yet.
Rent in Southern California is VERY expensive.
But, I need a working studio – badly.
This has been an issue I’ve been struggling with for the last year.
Recently, I lost a bid on an $80,000 job.
I was bidding against one other photographer.
I was told the client preferred my work.
The other photographer prints all of his own work and his cost was substantially lower than mine.
I have to pay a middleman to print for me.
I can’t compete on really big jobs without printing my own photos.
Commercial, large format, printers are extremely expensive.
They’re also HUGE …. the size of a large couch.
In my current situation, I don’t even have a place to put one.
Have you, or someone you know, gone through anything similar?
I’m so frustrated and I don’t have a solution ….
