Congrats to Bob Menard of MNRD Photography in Toronto! His workspace was the clear favorite and garnered the most votes in this year’s Cramped But Cool Studio Showcase. At 300 square feet, the studio is the smallest of the entrants, but shows that hard work pays off.
After a total renovation to get rid of a popcorn ceiling and old carpeting, Menard’s basement now makes the most of its square footage, with lots of storage plus touches that suit his portrait photography, such as the 500K LED lights he installed in the ceiling. You can read more about the renovation in our post, “Polished, 300-Square-Foot Reno Near Toronto.”
Menard earned not only the admiration of PDN readers but also a $50 gift certificate to B&H Photo and Video.
Thanks to all the entrants and voters.
