Popular professional photographer Nick Freeman has opened his second studio space in Northamptonshire.
Nick, of Nick Freeman Photography, has built his successful reputation from his original studio in Corby for the past five years, but decided to launch a second space alongside the first after beginning the hunt for an office.
“I’ve been using the corner of my dining room as an office space for the last few years and really wanted to find somewhere that would give me a dedicated space for editing and client face-to-face meetings that didn’t involve a car journey,” said Nick.
“This new split-level space gives me room for a desk work meeting area downstairs and a studio gallery upstairs, which has floor to ceiling glass creating a really lovely bright airy space that lends itself to anything where you need creative light. It’s totally different from the other studio.”
Nick, who has been a photographer for 34 years, has also taken on board customer feedback with the new studio, which is situated in Rothwell and is smaller and more personal than the first. The picturesque town also offers a great backdrop for lifestyle type shoots, offering clients a wider range of options. This gives the creative two very distinct and different areas to shoot in.
“My original studio is essentially just a box but that brings great benefits as you can make it whatever you want it to be. It’s quite big though when you just need a small spot for a headshot and some clients felt a bit intimidated when they came in. I wanted to be able to offer another option.
“I’ve never had a natural light studio which is the new studio’s key feature. Over the last couple of months, I’ve been learning the light by shooting family and friends ahead of welcoming clients in. I’m making some modifications to allow control of the light so I can keep my specific style, but it is a fantastic, relaxed environment without the intrusion of flashes.”
Nick creates professional headshots for individuals in all industries, as well as actors, singers and models and video clips. He can also provide talking headshots which are regularly used by firms to help them create compelling online and social media content. Nick is already working with a number of local businesses to enhance their profiles.
Nick’s commercial photography helps firms refresh their brands, and he also offers editorial photography for magazines, newspapers, press releases and end-of-year reports. Both studios allow Nick to increasingly shoot product photography, something which he enjoys immensely.
