COVID- 19 has hit many small businesses over the country, resulting in them closing down their office space, shop or headquarters. Pro Exposure Photography struggled throughout lockdown as the studio space they would use closed down limiting them to services they were able to offer and provide.
Working from home is now the new norm, however, Pro Exposure Photography was unable to produce high-quality work from their lounge. Having always worked from local studios within Leighton Buzzard, Allen (the owner) had to look at what other options he had to create a dedicated studio area. Allen considered extending his home, renting out space to use as a studio but decided against it as it wasn’t the right time to.
The garden is a space within the house that we all underestimate. Allen had a good size garden and thought he could utilize the space at the bottom of it with a log cabin. After days of research Allen and his wife chose the Terminator Log Cabin - W4m x D3m.
What Allen had to say...
“The whole experience from order to the finished build was great. The sales team was fantastic and customer services were good when it came to correcting and delivering an item that was short shipped on the delivery of the Terminator Log cabin. The instructions were clear and easy to follow and the added backup of the online videos showing you how to overcome any issues you may have was fantastic.
The cabin has been such an asset to my business since it was built and has given me a huge amount of flexibility for both family life and business. I have been able to use the cabin for so many aspects of my photography and not only just photographing products and people inside it. I have a great looking space now to be able to meet clients in person and to show them my work while discussing their projects as well as an office space to deal with administration etc. I have been getting some amazing comments too from clients as the cabin has added a very personal touch to my business which they have liked.”
Inside the Log Cabin Studio Room
The log cabin studio room features everything Allen needs for his photography business. Even with a slightly smaller space than he is used to, he made it work all within 4m x 3m. Allen is now able to offer fashion, headshots, and maternity photography as lockdown is easing from his cabin studio.
The space inside has overall been left spacious as possible as this gives the flexibility to manoeuvre equipment, screens, and lighting around.

Log cabins offer additional space for a variety of things. Small businesses have had to take a drop in business especially with certain facilities being unable. Extend your home without major building works and continue to drive your business to success as Pro Exposure Photography has with a Log Cabin Studio Room.
