Did you delete your message or did you not actually post it?  This is an interesting question.

Sponsoring with money, product, assistance, or models?  Or did you mean something else?

Sorry! I was meaning to delete this thread but I didn't know how to.

I was curious if anyone knew of any camera stores partnering with studios to offer discounts. Hypothetically, if a startup studio that has multiple studios/shooting spaces inside, would be spending $30,000-$40,000 on equipment, if they would partner or sponsor a studio if we developed an exclusive agreement to buy and rent through them and even promote their business inside the studio.

I was just wondering if anyone had heard of this or experienced this and to what extent. Any feedback would be cool. smile

Thank you. smile

Do you know someone at that studio I could contact? I'm not sure how a business would accept a cold call and I didn't know if you knew someone there personally that I could ask for.

Camera stores are having a hard enough time keeping their heads above water. If you were in a large enough metropolitan area, it might work... but you're also taking a risk (the store might make demands of your space and time that conflict with your business goals.) Neither side of the equation should be comfortable with that "exclusive" thing.

If your business model can't survive on its own merit, don't open the doors for business.
