Who Works Here? | Chelsey Rocha | WV Photography Studio

I want to start sharing a bit about our awesome members and how they are using studio space here at the 304 Collective for their businesses.  I reached out to all of our members about the idea, and this week we're going to start with Chelsey Rocha, of Rocha and Co Photography and OutSourceCo!  Even before she was a member, Chelsey used our studio space, and she's a natural fit around here. Photo by Rocha and Co What made you decide it was time to look for new studio space?  What was appealing about the 304 Collective studio?

SEAMLESS | April Photography Inspiration Set | Fairmont WV Studio Rental

Sometimes you don't need a lot of stuff.  You need the opposite. In fact, sometimes you want nothing at all.  Just a smooth, perfect background.  So this month, we want to share a collection of images and ideas from our seamless backdrops.  These are perfect for portraits or products.

While our white walls and neutral flooring are great, sometimes you want just an all white backdrop, and seamless paper is the perfect solution for this. We also frequently use a seamless backdrop when working with [...]
