6 months ago we decided to convert our garage into a natural light photography studio and office. Here’s the story in pictures. I still can’t quite believe we did it!
I had a clear idea from the outset how I wanted it to look and used Pinterest to collect all the ideas. Click here to see the board I created for inspiration.
The garage was split into two areas with a partition wall, giving us a utility room at the rear; there was also lots of random shelving stuffed full of camping gear, photography equipment, shoes, bags and other junk.
Where the heck were we going to put everything we needed to keep – tools, paint etc? We’d already filled the existing shed and playhouse.
We’ve still got a few bits to finish off (still no cupboard doors!) but have been putting the studio to good use over Christmas: Santa’s elves wrapped presents in here; 35 people sang in the New Year and 8 of us sat down for lunch on New Year’s Day! The kids love being in here, on the computer, drawing, listening to music videos. The dogs seem fascinated with the curtains – will post pics of them entwined in them!
Once the cupboard doors have been fitted I’m going to do an official photo shoot from lots of angles for the website. But for now, here’s the classic before and after shot of our brand new natural light photography studio.
