Great Photography Business for sale in Guildford, Woking & Surrounding
Guildford, Woking & Surrounding, Surrey
Business overviewEstablished business in a busy shopping centre with great foot fall. There is a already large and constantly growing customer base we have in the studio.
Sucessful photography studio for sale with consistent proven track record of profit each year.
The studio is in a location that has been a photography studio before for many years and always turned a profit and for that reason we have a very established clientele, the phone number for the business has been the same for years and many customers come back knowing there has been a photography studio here for over 10 years.
Due to change in my circumstances unfortunately I need to sell the business, this is very hard for me to do after 4 years being there I have seen it go from strength to strength and want to sell it to someone who is keen to continue the many years of success and reputation that it has in the area.
There is one full time member of staff - myself working at the moment. Normally there would be another full time and part time member as well but currently looking for someone new. If you wanted to bring in your own team this is possible with no complications to the current team.
What’s included in the sale is the whole studio set up with two computers, software (lightroom, photoshop, proselect for selling, studio cloud for customer database and diary) studio lights, spare lights (mainly Bowen’s)
Backgrounds, cameras with lenses(5d mr II and 7d), reflectors, flash, big format printer (Epson stylus 7890) with spare inks and paper, mounts, spare stock of frames and USBs, cctv set up, printers (passport), till, router, card machine, phone, display products, plenty of props for sessions, external naz drive for photo storage.
As well as previous customers photos with potential for continued sales, light stands, light soft boxes, portable background.
We mainly do family, kids and baby photography although we also get business individuals, companies or professional portfolios. We also do a lot of passport photos that generate some quality leads on daily basis.
We have a very large customer base of returning customers and plenty of new ones being in a busy shopping centre. Customers keep coming back to our studio as we have a very good reputation (plenty reviews). We also have repeat business as we offer multiple shoot schemes which bring customers back on multiple occasions throughout the year
The turnover has been consistent over the last 3 years with very similar net profit around £25,000 a year.
The shop is open 7 days a week and the opening hours are the same as the shopping centre (mon-sat 9.30-6.00 sun 11-5.00).
There is a potential to negotiate very flexible and attractive lease with the centre as they are very keen to keep the business in this location in the future. The location is only going to get better with Woking developing as a town and loads of new shops and flats coming up soon right outside of our door and out side of the centre. Due to the work going on in town, the centre have shown willingness to negotiate to a lower rate whilst the work is being carried out which will increase the net profit.
