Concept becoming reality!!!
Hi everyone! I mentioned plans for a new type of studio in an earlier post, and I am excited to say that we are working out contract details now and should be remodeling and marketing it soon!!! It's name is Amici Studios. "Amici" is Italian for "Friends".
Anyway, while there are those who rent out thier studio to other photographers, we have taken it a few steps farther. Amici will provide photographers in our area with a fully equipped camera room/s, an amazing on line scheduling system that updates in real time once a time slot has been taken, a waiting/meeting room, a changing room, ability to accept credit cards, pre-made and custome framing for which they will get a commission, window space for advertizing (the studio is in a mall), refreshment for thier guests, a receptionist, discounts to area businesses, workshops on business and shooting techinique, and some more things that I can't quite think of off the top of my head.
We are hoping to roll it out in about a month, but it might take a little longer to do, but we are working crazy hard at it. Tell me what you think about it and if you are willing, I would love it for as many people as possible to participate in a survey I am putting in the business section.
Thanks for your input.
