So, I just made a link to the Studio rental page on the site, this page should help clarify what TPS offers for the Rental aspect, it should be noted as well that we made a choice as to how to move forward with a few potential problems, mainly, Nudes, artistic and other wise and Boudoir. The TPS policy as it currently stands for nudes, all nudes artistic or otherwise is not allowed at the TPS location. The TPS Policy for Boudoir however states, tasteful Boudoir is allowed but must be cleared before any shoot, also all models must be over 18 and have a valid photo id, to be checked and photo copied before any shoot. Boudoir shoots are to be rented at a higher rate, $35/ hour. These policies are to be in compliance for our own liability.
Speaking of liability, there will be a liability agreement to be filled out by each new renting client before their first shoot. The form will acknowledge that if any equipment is broken or damaged during a shoot by either the renter or their model(s) then a flat $50 fee will be assessed to help cover repairs or replacement of equipment, this agreement is mean to tbe seen as an acknowledgement that the renter will do their best to treat all equipment in the studio as if it were their own.
The $18/hr studio rental fee will be an introductory rate, this will increase to $25/hour on December 1st, right after our open house. I strongly encourage everyone to check out the studio rental page, I have more information there on the services available for renters, as well as our policy on nudes/boudoir.
Now that I've gotten through that, this weekend I am working in the studio, improving the wiring issues that have been a the least an annoyance, and at worst a severe liability, I think this new suspension system I'm engineering will solve the current issues we are facing as well as give more mobility and versatility in our lighting set-ups. Also I've been researching different flooring options, to make light-weight, and cheap floor drops. It would appear that tile is too heavy, hardwood, too expensive, and lamanates might be the way to go, if anyone has any ideas, feel free to contact me, or leave a comment on what floor drops you would like to see.
In the next few weeks, I plan to get additional background frames, as well as more backgrounds, we're still trying to secure a decent strobe setup, if anyone would like a key to the studio to have full access whenever at no additional cost, call me and we can explore the details. I suppose that should be enough for now, once the cord problem is fixed I will post some images of the progress
