This week we will be touring the studio of NewbornPhotography.com member Amanda Gates of Triple Vision Studios out of Nevada. Triple Vision Studios is a professional photography studio specializing in capturing memories that last a lifetime. Let’s take a peek at their space!
How did you become a photographer?
I was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV and I didn't quite know what I wanted to do. I got a graphic design degree from an Art school and did a lot of jobs I was not happy with when I realized I wanted to be my own boss. I have always had a love for photography and one of my friends doubted me when it came to capturing/editing something unique, so I grabbed my camera and daughter and we went to the park, I came home and LOVED the results, so with my friends and family telling me "you should do photography" and "you have an eye for this" and "you are a natural", I started to seek out the industry to see if it would be something I came to love. Sure enough, I did and I was good at it, it felt natural, so I pursued it fully. My best friend, Fatima, and I joined our skills and opened a tiny office space to bring clients too, and little did we know we out grew it in 4 months time, but was stuck in a lease. We did what we could to grow the business in the tiny space we had and when the time came, we were ready. We grew our client base X100 and decided to make the leap. We opened the new location with hopes to keep growing the business and learning everything we can to be the best we can be. We are known for our whimsical style and color approach to photography, so we based our studio design around that concept.
How long have you been in business?
We have been in business for 18months, having the new studio only open a month and already we see a difference in client comfortability, excitement, and overall experience, so we are pleased with how everything turned out for our new studio.
How long have you had your studio?
We had a tiny office space about 600sqft, with the main shooting room about 250sqft, and it was tough for 15 months. The new location is 1600sqft and completely open, no walls and lots of windows. The new studio has only been open for the month of September so far.
Where is it located?
We are located in Henderson, NV only 10min from Las Vegas in a prime location right off the 215 freeway with easy access from all sides of the valley.
What do you photograph in your studio?
We photograph Maternity, Newborn, Babies, and Children in studio and take our Families outdoors during the 10 months of great weather we have here in Vegas.
Do you use natural light or studio light in your studio?
We now do both Natural Light and Studio Light Photography! Something that was a problem before, so the new studio has opened a whole other world in photography for us.
How long did it take to build/finish your studio space?
We signed our lease on July 29th and opened the doors Sept 14th, so it took roughly 6 weeks from concrete to complete. It was insane to do this transformation this fast, and we are still shocked that it even happened.
How would you describe your studio space?
We like to think of our space as professional, yet whimsical and fun, like organized chaos. The clients who come through the door love that there is so much to look at and that they don't feel like they went to a studio for pictures. Its relaxed and carefree and exactly the response we wanted.
Did you have a certain vision in mind when creating your space?
Our vision truly came alive, we wanted colorful, fun, a bit of clutter but clean and professional. The furniture throughout the studio is vintage, colorful, patterned and creative. Nothing really has a reason, it just is, and we love that about this space. Everything is functional, yet can be used as a prop if wanted. Kids are welcomed by a BIG wall chalkboard to draw and add their own piece of art to our studio, and we love that about this space. Everyone is welcomed and comfortable.
What is your favorite thing about your studio space?
Our favorite thing about the studio is our amazing custom built backdrop system. It fits 98 backdrops and is almost full, yeah we are kinda prop hoarders. The clothes pin on top of each backdrop has a tiny thumbnail image of the backdrop so our clients can see everything we have to offer and it looks clean and organized at the same time. My partner Fatima's wonderful husband custom built our vision and we could not be happier, it makes life a lot simpler.
Thank you for sharing with us Amanda!
