At the beginning of October we found somewhere to make into a new studio! It’s taken a lot of work but is so worth it now it’s complete and open for business!
We took the keys at the beginning of October 2014 and over the course of a month and a half, including shooting 4 weddings from Devon & Somerset to North Wales, multiple location/home portraits, pre-wedding shoots and some photography work in Spain for 5 days (aswell as Justin working his 4day a week job as the product, promo & marketing photographer for a much larger company and Emily; 4days a week as a childminder) the actual renovation/decoration work in the studio only consisted of 2 full weekends and a few solid evenings!
It couldn’t have been done without the help of some amazing friends and family! The studio was completed in time for the proposed launch on Friday 14th November 2014 with portraits commencing in the studio and also in the orchard the following day.
Here’s how it looked from when we got it.
It has taken a fair amount of hard work and vision which is why we didn’t post any photos of how it looked when we first got it. Most of you would have thought we were crazy taking this on whilst also doing shoots, running the business, traveling around Europe for work along with everything else but we got there in time for the launch party on the 14th November which was great fun! The feedback from everyone so far has been outstanding! Everyone LOVES the fact that it’s in an orchard setting. It is a truly unique selling point. The photos that we’ve captured in the Orchard from the first few studio shoots look great!
Bookings for portraits and wedding meetings are by appointment only. You can email us to book a time to come and see us.
We have a unique event to the area; CAROLS IN THE ORCHARD on Saturday 6th December. We will have as many apple trees as possible in the Orchard uplit to create a stunning, magical visual with lots of people coming together at this festive time of year around the log fires, drinking mulled wine and singing lots of Christmas Carols. It will be fun! We’ll also have more local produce to buy from Currypool Orchard; their pure, organic apple juice, honey made in the orchard, plum jam, chutney available separately or in giftbaskets for very reasonable prices!
We hope to see you all very soon!! Email: Studio@JustinKrause.co.uk for any questions or queries.
