come back to the creative life stage tony core bell all right with me inside the home studio what are we hoping that folks are going to take away through this class I think this is the of this whole collection and we've been doing I think this is the this is the big thick fat meaty part of this thing uh first and foremost we talked about wanting to go into the home and actually do some shooting and so that's going to come and are all day segment tomorrow pretty much but today we wanted to talk a little bit about segments having to do with let's talk about the business let's establish this as a business in the home uh in the first segment in the second segment we're going we're going to talk all about sales and mark great so that's kind of the layout for the next couple of segments here uh but then tomorrow we're going to be much much more active and there's a lot of shooting going on tomorrow and lots of live stuff happening as well as the video stuff happening where we actually take folks into ah home we're goingto have never walked into before and see how you actually do go about doing that and all the different things that you have to consider all the different lighting scenarios that you have to consider so it's going to be an amazing class thank you for being here with me glad to be here and take it away thank you so much so yeah so thank you guys for being here you guys have been patiently sitting there for a while now and you're probably pretty bored with me at this point I'm tired listening my droning on and on uh I'll tell you what I like I like the fact that uh there is a pretty big audience watching this and there's a lot of people from a lot of countries which I'm thrilled and delighted and overwhelmed about and very humbled by it but I think what the reason for that happens to be this isn't direction that everybody wants to go that's new to this aa lot of people want to work in their home some people work in their home and they feel that they're kind of stuck in the corner and they can't do very much uh some people have never worked in their home but their dying to work in their home some have just closed the business closed on a commercial location and now they've moved it to their home there seems to be a lot of that in the professional community of photographers so I do think that there's I think this this opportunity for this course I think has has not just a right to exist but I think that it is it's very timely I think I think the time is right and and I have applaud creative life for coming up with this concept and calling me on it I appreciate them calling me instead of somebody else so thank you for calling me arlene and jim

Class Description

Working from home is a great way to minimize costs, but it can be challenging to deal with the inevitable space and light limitations and it can feel awkward to explain to clients.

In Inside the Home Studio, Tony Corbell will help you address the logistical and practical challenges of working from home. 

You’ll learn how to:

  • Work with low ceilings, dark spaces, and small skinny rooms
  • Market and sell in-home shoots
  • Store and organize your equipment.
  • Work with family and client schedules

Tony will help you come up with new ways to shoot in ordinary spaces by sharing real-life examples of home studio scenarios. He’ll shoot formal and candid portraits throughout the entire house, teaching you how to leverage each room for its specific uniqueness.

Inside the Home Studio will show you how to approach different photographic genres and help you make the space you have to work for your business.



Another great course by Tony Corbell. I loved this course. Tony is a great teacher, great photographer and great business man. He's enjoyable to listen to and a great teacher. He holds nothing back and shows how to shoot great pictures even in small shooting environments or on a low budget. I would buy again Tony's courses.

Penny Foster

Wow! Tony is fantastic! So many hints and tips, crammed into this great course. I shoot portraits out of a small converted garage, about 9 ft high, 9 feet wide, and about 19 feet long. Tony has shown me so many ways to make this small space work for me, for which I am eternally grateful. What this course highlights is that whatever small space you have, there are ways of making it work. You need to buy this course and watch it over and over because, every time I watch it, I gain more and more info that I missed the first time around. Brilliant!

Kat Ciemiega

Absolutely wonderful, I cannot praise the content enough. I value Tony's stories as much as the information he is giving away, because it puts the data in the perspective and practical context of the actions we take. Thank you for this class!
