How to Prep Your Clients for a Smooth Studio Session at The Tampa Studio

Preparing your clients for a studio session can make a world of difference in the outcome of their photoshoot. At The Tampa Studio, we’ve designed our space with both photographers and their clients in mind to ensure a seamless and enjoyable experience. Here are some essential tips on prepping your clients for a smooth studio session in our intimate, second-floor studio.

1. Set the Right Expectations

Before the day of the shoot, communicate clearly with your clients about the specifics of the location. Let them know The Tampa Studio is located on the second floor, and while we do not have an elevator, the cozy and creative atmosphere waiting upstairs is well worth the brief climb. This heads-up ensures your clients arrive ready and at ease with what to expect.

2. Discuss Parking and Amenities

Ease any logistical worries by informing your clients about the ample parking available at our studio. Also, mention the on-site bathrooms and the cozy amenities we offer, such as a comfy sofa for relaxing between shots, a full-length mirror for last-minute outfit checks, and a mini-fridge stocked with chilled water to keep everyone refreshed.

3. Highlight Our Studio Features

Familiarize your clients with the features of the studio before they arrive. Explain that our studio is equipped with professional softbox lighting that will flatter their features and versatile paper backgrounds in white or grey that can be chosen to suit their session’s theme. Let them know about the clothing rack with hangers for their wardrobe changes and the Bluetooth speakers available to set the mood with their choice of music.

4. Advise on Preparation Tips

Encourage your clients to bring options for clothing that complement the available backdrops. Remind them to bring any personal props that they feel might enhance their session, though they can also explore our collection of props, including posing boxes and plants. Suggest they come makeup-ready but also bring along any makeup for touch-ups as the session progresses.

5. Confirm Booking Details Early

Ensure that all bookings and offers are confirmed and paid 24 hours prior to the booking request. This policy helps manage the schedule effectively and ensures that everyone involved can plan accordingly without any last-minute hiccups.

6. Create a Pre-Session Checklist

Send your clients a pre-session checklist a few days before their booking. This list should include items to bring, like various outfits and accessories, and reminders about the studio’s amenities and features that they can take advantage of during their session.

By following these tips, you can ensure that your clients are well-prepared and that their studio session at The Tampa Studio is as smooth and successful as possible. Our aim is to make sure that every photographer and their clients find our space not just a place to capture images, but a place where creativity feels right at home.

  1. Mentioning parking in a place where it is hard to find parking is a big one for me. If I know I’ll have to fight to find a spot and pay a fortune for it, I will weigh my options on it, if it’s worth going or not just from that alone.
