Industry Overview

The photography studio industry in North America includes mainly portrait, commercial and still photography services, either on site or at a studio. Although demand for photography services has known a slight decline due to smartphone improvements and broader economic conditions, studios have since reopened and experienced a return to modest growth.

Growth Opportunities

The photography industry has experienced a small annual decline of 1.3% between 2019 and 2024 mainly due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its repercussions. The estimated yearly growth for the years 2024-2029 is 0.3%. Both profit trends and the marketing potential of photography studio businesses are favorable.

The company operates in a modestly growing market with a strong brand, excellent access to customers, and untapped capacity, making it well-positioned for growth over the next several years. Additionally, the company could diversify its offerings by leveraging longer opening hours and service diversification.

A new active and ambitious owner would be able to grow the business at an estimated rate of approximately 10% per year over the next few years.


The estimated value of the business is CAD $39,000. This estimation takes into consideration not only the company’s past financial success but also its business model, which presents numerous competitive advantages:

  • An excellent location in an area with a demographic favorable to the industry
  • A business model and value proposition that allow for hands-off operations
  • A strong online presence
  • An excellent reputation
  • An attractive customer base
  • Good growth and diversification potential
