Designing the Perfect Home Studio
Carrie Wildes CPP
Making a home studio doesn’t just involve slapping paint on the walls, setting up a desk, a computer and a power strip. It takes vision, planning and a little bit of capital. In this class, Instructor Carrie Wildes gives you the information and direction you need so you can create the perfect home studio . . . the first time.
First, learn as Carrie explores several design ideas that are important to home studios. You’ll discuss key elements like:
- The challenge of creating separate living and work spaces
- Comfortable client seating
- How to make a great entrance way
- Incorporating your brand and style
- How to showcase your work and wow your clients
- The use of technology in your studio
Carrie will share her experience of building her own home studio and some of the challenges and obstacles she overcame. She’ll even include tips like including extra outlets to create a “battery-charging area.” Or, how to budget for the extras that invariably happens with a build-out.
If you’re designing a home studio or think you may want to one day, this class is a jackpot of ideas and creativity that will save you time and money! Learn from Carrie so you don’t have to make your own mistakes!

Carrie Wildes owns Carrie Wildes Photography (based in Tampa, Florida) and operates out of a custom home studio and second location in a shared commercial space. Their team includes six photographers, a studio manager, and graphic designer. You can find Carrie dodging traffic, leaning off ledges, and sometimes even braving the snow to get the money shot. But this all didn’t start until she realized the gift she had while on a mission trip to the Philippines…where she fell in love with photography. In 2007, she and her husband, David, left the frozen tundra of Chicago to start a new and warmer life in Tampa, Florida. Carrie then decided to get off the corporate ladder and build one her own. She graduated from Purdue University with a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering, is a scuba diver, doesn’t eat beef, and is a social media diva.
