My wife and I worked from our home and studio for over 30 years we loved it. I had always wanted to work at home.
We are artists and eventually became very successful exhibiting our photography at nationally ranked art festivals, through galleries and museums.
I had my own darkroom with color processing equipment and an available light (big glass windows) shooting studio.
We each worked on separate bodies of images and I was always excited creating new images. In the matting and framing studio I had my music, TV and computer. I didn't have to be concerned that I was bothering anyone. I also listened to auto books when doing repetitive work.
I always felt like I wasn't wasting my time sitting in traffic commuting or being A JW and with that kind of time saved I could put in a 60 to 70 hour week with ease and still spend time with my wife.
Since we created our own product and drove to our events I seldom needed workers never more then family member part time.
All the artists I knew worked at home or had built studio's next to their home.
