Expand Your Photography Business with Small Business Administration Loan Program - PPA Today

Expand Your Photography Business with Small Business Administration Loan Program

Looking to expand your photography business with a new location, renovation, or new equipment? Sounds near impossible today, doesn't it? Not to Laura Novak, nationally acclaimed photographer and owner of Laura Novak Photography, a documentary wedding and portrait studio. So how did she manage it?

The acquisition of the new property was made possible through programs available through the Small Business Administration's Wilmington office, or WEDCO. The Small Business Administration (SBA) 504 loan program is designed to help businesses purchase real estate, build facilities, renovate leasehold space, or buy equipment. President Obama recently increased available funds for the 504 loan program as part of his economic stimulus program.

This program worked for Novak, who announced the opening of her new retail location in Trolley Square (Wilmington, Del.) on April 2.

"We are so fortunate to be able to purchase this property and continue to provide a client experience that is unrivaled," said Novak. "In today's difficult economic times, it is even more important to surround yourself with photographs of life's meaningful treasures. Our studio is honored to be able to provide such a service."

This is just another example of professional photographers' innovation and determination to create their success stories in any economy.

And if you do expand your business, here are some more ideas from Novak for celebrating that (and marketing yourself to the community). To celebrate the grand opening at 1825 Delaware Avenue, Novak has schedule the following events :

Thursday April 30th • 5-9pm

Friday May 1st • 5-9pm
  • Wilmington's First Friday Art loop featuring Seven Arts Gallery
  • Wine tasting compliments of Chaddsford Winery

Saturday May 2nd • 11am-3pm
