If you keep up with Devan and I on social media, then you probably already know that we recently purchased our first home and moved last Monday. This post is probably not for you if you're one of the aforementioned people. This post is for returning and new/future clients, and how me moving may impact them. The short answer: probably not much, if at all.
I almost always shoot on location, so me moving to Jefferson isn't really going to impact my new or old clients too much. The only way my new location might affect my clients is if they want to meet with me or have their photos taken at my "studio," which would be our house, and they live near Madison and have to drive out to me. It's probably worth mentioning that there have only been three or four times in the four years I've been shooting professionally where a client has wanted to meet with me at my studio or I've thought to myself, "I really wish I had a studio for this shoot." I do plan on having a dedicated space where I can have some backdrops and my lighting set up eventually just in case, but I doubt it'll get used much. I have also considered finding a small space to rent back in Madison, but based on how much of a non-issue not having a studio has been, I'm not sure if it'd be worth it.
For as long as I can remember, I've charged travel fees if I had to travel farther than 50 miles. Ever since Devan and I decided to move out of Madison, I had planned on omitting those travel costs for my clients in the Madison area, I just hadn't thought of how to handle those travel fees consistently from client to client. As of right now, I'm thinking that I'll determine the travel distance from either Madison (probably the Capitol Building), or Jefferson, whichever is closer.
I still plan on putting most of my focus on the Madison area, so don't think that because I no longer live there I won't work for you. It's an incredibly easy drive that isn't too long, and I don't mind it at all. With that being said, I'm also going to try to tap into the Jefferson and Milwaukee area as well and see how that goes.
For those of you who are curios, here are photos of the house:
