#924 Photo Studio Feature

We got a very nice review of our studio recently. Made me glow and, really, it shows what we’ve always known!

So today we’re featuring the studio and what’s going on in the space.

The Review
Cindy Orti rented our photo studio for some shooting and loved it.
She says:
Most studios I’ve worked in have the look and feel of a studio, with heavy duty lighting everywhere, backdrops, etc. They aren’t necessarily a bright and welcoming space, which I deem very important when working with clients. It’s important for them to be comfortable and not intimidated by any space we work in. I think what I love most about your studio is how welcoming it is for clients.

Additionally, Ottawa Studio Works is the perfect size to accommodate a crew, a set, and client spectators without everyone feeling cramped. Plus the fact that the studio is also used as gallery space, I appreciate that my clients can look around at what is hung up on the wall as it keeps them entertained during wait times.

I also value that the art hung on the walls provides exposure to other Ottawa artists. It demonstrates that the studio is supportive of the Ottawa photo community and I believe that not just photographers, but clients value that as well.
