The Cost of a Studio

Many E-Commerce companies don’t have their own photography studio. Having a studio should always be part of the in-house photography business plan.

A wide space offers choices of shooting scenes in various sizes. It will highlight the functionality of your product in a unique way. Being able to display your product in unique ways will draw the attention of customers with the eye-catching photos. Besides, we need to have enough space to accommodate our professional photography equipment.

Oftentimes, a complete studio can be divided into two areas – product preparation area and photo shooting area. Product preparation area is mainly used for storing products. Also, before formally shooting products, the cleaning and styling work should be completed in the product preparation area.

Normally, the dimension of the product preparation area is half that of the photo shooting area. So how big does a photography studio need to be? What’s the budget for a studio? These are difficult questions to answer which ties to location, cost, type of products, the area of focus, etc.

The followings are studio sizes for each type of product and the average rental price in different locations.
