Organising and executing your own studio session is affordable !!
It is one of the best ways to take your photographic skills to the next level.
The primary advantage of shooting in a studio is the ability to control and shape the quality of light. Shooting under studio lighting also allows even low end / cropped sensor cameras to render sharp, well-detailed images. All of this control and quality means having access to a sufficiently large space and all the equipment that goes with it, usually a fairly hefty price to own & maintain. Thereby making renting a studio space is a great way to gain experience without the financial pain of buying your own equipment.
Chances are that you are a budding photographer, business owner or a marketer trying to get an idea what to expect in a photo studio for your upcoming shoot. Typically a photographer would arrange this for you, but most often they offer you their own studio, even if sometimes their studio might not the right fit for the scope of the project.
Some planning and a well-equipped studio can greatly simplify your logistics and can mitigate most hiccups related to your project. As not all studios are created equal as the available ones vary from makeshift spaces to custom purpose-built spaces & everything in between. Some studios may also be better suited for a particular genre/style of photography than others hence the importance to select the right studio for your needs.
We are happy to now announce that we are now offer workshops on studio lighting. These workshops and tutoring sessions are offered not just offered as group classes, but also as personal workshops. A unique advantage with Artriva's Photography workshops is the amount of time available to the participants for hands on practice and the opportunity to shoot with both Professional & Amaetuer Models to get a good start for their portfolio & getting a hold on .
This combined with small batch sizes ensures that learners do get ample time to learn and test out their creativity. Models on the other hand have the following advantage.
- This will be a Paid assignment for well experienced models.
- New Models get an opportunity to add photos to their portfolio, plus contacts of upcoming photographers.

Just like your job interview where the first impression you give a recruiter matters the most, your profile picture on LinkedIn is what catches the eye of a prospective employer. Your professional profile photo is an integral part of your LinkedIn or any other Job site profile and, along with your employment history and credentials markets you as a strong prospective employee for employers.
Why does having a professional photo on LinkedIn matter so much?
- Prospective Employers do judge you for your professionalism & commitment by your appearance.
- It's a natural instinct and a subconscious connection is made when one sees your profile photograph (profiles without a picture do tend to get ignored).
- It is an integral part of your professional history and a prospective employer would be imagining how his/her brand / organization will be represented.
- It also keeps focus on what you have to offer professionally.

The word Photograph is derived from the greek words phos & graphê meaning light drawing. The best way to control light is providing your own.
Why not just use the SUN ?? apart from a short duration in the morning & evenings (on a clear day) the sun is just too bright and results in harsh shadows around objects and areas of a face. The only way to have 100% control over light is to head indoors into a studio where you can plan every ray of light to work the way you want.
A Studio (derived from the latin word studere, meaning to study) is a workroom. A Studio is place where you can minimise the effect of sunlight and also have enough space to move around with your subject & equipment.
