    Photographer that loves coffee

    Hello all,

    I wanted to do a quick intro. I'm from Gurnee, IL, about 20mins south of the WI/IL border (near Six Flags Great America). I am currently a full time photographer with a studio in Gurnee. I'm looking to double my studio as a cafe as well. I'd love any tips or pointers of which threads to start with.

    With the research I've done, setting up a mobile coffee cart will reduce my startup costs dramatically because then I won't have to renovate the studio. I've been looking at the ready made carts but I'm thinking of just building my own to my specifications.

    Anyways, thanks for having me.

    Cheers,
    BJ

    Unless you want to give up photography, you have to keep the cafe in the studio since they promote each other.

    Yes, thatís correct. Iíll be keeping both open. Thought is to have the cafe open for the morning hours then photography studio afterwards. Iíll just incorporate the photography theme into the cafe.

    Name all your coffee with photography terms, such as Light Exposure/Dark Exposure, etc.

    And take/display/sell coffee related photos in your cafe, teach some simple photo techniques while they are drinking coffee to keep them there longer and drink more...

    The opportunities are limitless.
