space like this...easily $70 - $90 nett overhead per day ( excluding photographer's pay ) or
$130 - $160 per day including pay.

average 3 days one assignment of $500 billing to sustain, more than that means good profit, otherwise, walking on tight rope. 30 days passes very fast.

pls specify clearly in written agreement that landlord will have the priority to use the studio in case of a clash in shooting schedule.
saw many friendship breakup bcoz of this.

all clients want their job done asap.

your main purpose is to lower your overhead by sharing. you are not looking for a business partner, so you'd become the landlord ( so to say ).
listing out the dos and don't for your tenant is utmost important to avoid unnecessary dispute later on.

make sure your place is well protected, like cctv, alarm system, insured against theft, fire etc.
so the one who is sharing, also have to share these cost too.

who buy drinks to stock up the fridge ?
when your tenant's clients or friend come visiting, can he/she use those drinks to serve them ?

these might be petty, but eventually are the sparks for big fuss later on.

you know, i'd got a friend who got really taken off, he is deisgn oriented, rent / share office space with a fellow, one night he reurn to office and saw police raiding his premise, later discovered that his shared office partner had used the location to consume drugs. but somehow they do it late after office hour thinking that no one will know...however the anti-narcotics outsmart them.

Noted on your point. Perhaps we can learn from those who manage successfully... ? Anyone care to share?

another case of real life scenario... a not so close friend, commercial/mag photog, operates a one-man-shop studio.
oneday, two walk in client demand some products which they brought along to be photographed.
agreed witht the pricing and he started working on it, during the process, one of them excuse out to buy some refreshment and snacks and claim they haven't eaten.
later on return with drinks and food. midway, offer packet drink to photog.

one sip all it takes.... when awaken...all those can be hand carry all gone...hasselblad, carl zeiss etc.

his hindsight...did not install cctv, let strangers into studio.
though equipment is insured, but the payment is not upfront or in full, takes some time to wait for result from police/CID investigation. have to borrow money to replenish equipment to continue business, very painful experience.

Well things happens, fortunately nothing of that sort happen to me. That's is why I am looking at a short term sharing for 6 months afterwhich if things works out well, we can then renew the lease for a longer term.

Thanks - Still looking :)
