“You May not Want to Hear This!”
Photographic studios are opening their doors at an all-time high. Studios that have been opened for years, even decades, are now closing their doors after years of professional service. What makes the difference of the ones that keep their doors open and the ones that close after only a few months or even years? That’s the question that todays’ studio owners are going through, how to survive in this economic environment.
