Storage for Professional Photographers
Many people have the goal of becoming a professional photographer, but only a handful truly make it a career. They spend the time studying composition, finding the right subjects to photograph, and honing their craft. Photographers may make money by taking portraits, or by working for a magazine that wants landscape or nature shots. Whatever the case may be, the one thing that’s always true for photographers is that they have a lot of equipment. At EZ Storage® in Pittsburgh, we can help you find the perfect option for your cameras, tripods, and everything else you need for your photography business.
Backdrops and Canvases
If your work focuses mostly on interior shots, such as weddings and proms, then you may have backdrops and other props that you use to stage a designated “photo area.” Whether you’re taking photos of one couple or several couples, you want to create the perfect atmosphere for your shots. You also want to be able to provide your customers with the most professional-looking photos, and you don’t want pictures that were taken against a brick wall or a wall with an unflattering paint color. If you have several large backdrops that you need to store, our staff can help you find the ideal unit.
If you’re a photographer who works mostly outdoors, then you may want to print your photos on canvas so that they can be sold in galleries and shops. Nature photography is very popular with people all across the country, and one magnificent photo can sell hundreds of copies once a few people have seen and purchased it. If you’ve had a large number of canvases printed, a storage unit can be a great option for keeping them safe. The same is true of any photo prints you have, and as long as they’re stored properly with archival paper and adequate protection, they’ll last for many, many years. If you have frames that you need to store, but you don’t want to keep them in your basement or garage, one of our units can be the perfect option.
Cameras and Tripods
No photographer can work without a camera, and whether you’re working inside or outside, you want to have the right camera for the setting. You may also need a tripod that will allow you to take a steady shot every single time. However, tripods and cameras can take up a lot of space, especially if you have a few of each. Even with the improvement of digital technology, photographers often have more than one setup, and if you need to store your equipment, a climate-controlled space is often the best choice. You want to protect the electronics inside your cameras, and if you’re still working with traditional film, keeping your negatives at an appropriate temperature can protect them from damage.
At EZ Storage®, we have a number of climate-controlled spaces at all three of our Pittsburgh-area locations, and the staff at each facility can help you find the unit that meets your needs. Even if you just need a small space for a few months, they’ll make sure you have exactly what you need at a price you can afford. Our month-to-month leases make it easy to rent a unit for the time you need, instead of being locked into a year-long contract.
If you’re a photographer in search of local self-storage, visit one of our locations today. Our unit selection and state-of-the-art security will show you that we put customer service and the protection of your belongings above all else. If you have any questions, a staff member or resident manager will be more than happy to help.
We look forward to meeting you!
