Self Storage for Photographers and Cinematographers

If you’re a freelance photographer or videographer, your work sure can keep you hopping. One morning, you’re on the far west side of town shooting video interviews. Later that day, you’re doing corporate work clear on the other side of town.

Your work is creative and rewarding. The one drag? All the gear you need, which can be different for each and every assignment.

Happily, there is a solution.

Videography and Photography Equipment Storage

Depending on the amount of your equipment—and the size of your vehicle—you may be able to keep it with you all of the time.

But, as every photographer and cinematographer knows, the equipment can add up fast. Cameras, tripods, lighting, light stands, diffusers, clamps, meters—and that’s really just the beginning.

One possible solution is to rent a self storage unit in a central location. That way, you don’t have to head all the way home in between jobs. Depending on the size of your unit and the city where you live, this could cost you well less than $100 a month—money you could make up quickly by saving time and gas money.

If you don’t need the unit any more, you can just let it go. If you find you need more space, you can do that, too. You can even change the location of your storage unit if you find that your assignments are taking you in a different direction.

In short, you’ll be keeping your business lean and agile—without adding any significant expenses.
