Does the studio have printed material and a printed rate card? Does it appear to be adequately staffed? Were the telephones ringing? Did it look like a fast paced studio? Do you recognise any names of photographers who currently shoot in the studios? Get into the studio as soon as possible after your arrival. There’s very little point in wasting time talking with the studio director or employees about your prerequisites if the studio turns out to be not fit for purpose.
