Even as outdoor photoshoots become more common and smartphone selfies allow for spontaneous headshots, photoshoots at an indoor studio remain as popular as ever. From greater control to fewer distractions, there are many reasons that studios remain the venue of choice for global brands, families, individuals, and even pet owners. Here’s a look at five photography studio perks and reasons to book a studio session.

1. Studios Allow for Complete Control

With an outdoor photo session, you are at the mercy of the weather. With an average of 134 days of precipitation annually in Oregon, booking an outdoor photoshoot can be a gamble. By contrast, a scheduled session at a photography studio can take place rain or shine. You’ll also have complete control over temperature, so you won’t have to worry about cold temperatures flushing your cheeks or warm weather making you sweat. Likewise, you won’t have to worry about wind. (But thanks to fans, a windswept look is achievable.)

At a studio shoot, you’ll also have complete control over lighting. As arguably the most important aspect of photography, lighting can turn a good photo into an incredible photograph. Lighting can be the difference between looking exhausted or looking radiant. Dark circles can disappear, fine lines can vanish, and certain facial features can be enhanced. Experienced photographers know exactly how to manipulate light in your indoor shoot to create stunning images.

2. Photography Studios Eliminate Distractions

One of the key reasons to book a studio session lies in the serenity of a studio. You won’t get distracted by a gust of wind, leaves falling, waves crashing, or a critter running by. You won’t have to contend with noise from traffic or other people. You can focus on the directions your photographer is giving you. This is also the reason that studio sessions are perfect for babies and pets.

3. You Can Create Multiple Looks in a Single Session

Another benefit of having your session in a photography studio is that you can quickly and privately change your clothes or your child’s clothing. A single session can capture multiple looks, giving you a greater variety of final shots. By contrast, trying to change your clothes or adjust your hair outdoors can prove tricky.

4. Indoor Photo Sessions Provide Perfect Shots to Use Professionally

Studio shoots are perfect for employees, job seekers, and business owners, as they yield a professional, classic, and indeed, timeless result. However, it’s important to note that this doesn’t mean your headshots need to be ordinary. On the contrary, with various backgrounds to choose from, you can create fun, playful, or traditional shots for you or your staff.

5. Photo Sessions at a Studio Are Convenient

A fifth benefit of booking an indoor shoot at your photographer’s studio is convenience. With easy parking and a quick walk inside, you won’t have to carry clothing, makeup, props, or equipment to an outdoor location. (This is especially helpful if you have small children or pets who can get dirty or tire after trekking to your location.)
