There was a weekly discussion at dgrin.com, where one of the discussion primers, among its inquiries, was whether or not we have a studio.
Would I ever choose to get a studio down the line?
The positives that I see from that is that I would be very profitable and that it gives a great space to set up a personal gallery and walk in viewers.
But, that would mean that I would have practically settle down in one area. Being that I love to travel, often frequently, it would be impractical. I have no issue bringing materials and meeting clients at a Starbucks (or any other nice place to drink coffee and chat).
It was an interesting question. And it will be something that I will be thinking about for a while. At the moment, I see having a personal physical studio to be a bit impractical since I really don’t do any “studio” work.
And I would need to find a place where I would call my “home” for quite a while. I love Princeton, don’t get me wrong. But with my fleeting heart, I could find myself wanting to live somewhere else. So it would also require me to never want to move.
Then there is the thought of renting. Sure I wouldn’t be held down like actually owning it, but then there is the issue of is it really in my shooting scope to be in a studio?
Who knows maybe when I am forty I might forget this post and get a studio or, rather, a gallery.
