Studio 1912

One of the most exciting things to happen to Michael Woolheater Photography is Studio 1912. I created and designed this photography studio and partnered with several of the area’s best and brightest on an impeccable studio for photography and videography. It also provides a great space to capture those important moments when the South Dakota weather doesn’t know it is photo day.

Here and Now

Located at 104 North Krohn Place in Sioux Falls, South Dakota in a building that was first constructed in 1885 then expanded in 1912. Studio 1912 is in a space that has essentially been untouched since its initial build. The studio is divided into two large studios (Studio 1912 East and Studio 1912 West). Each studio has significant natural light, and together have over 3800 square feet. It is one of South Dakota’s most impressive photography studios. Wall to wall lifestyle sets, rustic walls, and modern furniture make this studio ideal for seniors, portraits, business photography, lingerie/boudoir, families, and everything in between.

Thank you to everyone that has visited us in the studio. Below are a few pieces of work collected my time in the studio. I do many family photo shoots in the studio that can be found under Families & Couples and I do a lot of Boudoir sessions in the studio.

In the News

Studio 1912 was recently featured on Keloland Living, a local news program in the Sioux Falls region. A special thank you to the Cutler Law Firm for the invitation to collaborate on this special program focusing on small business and partnership.

Initial Construction

It only took a couple of meetings with the building’s owner to determine that this was the perfect space for something that had been a dream since my photography inception. Initial construction involved building some internal walls, adding a private bathroom, painting the ceilings and walls bright white to reflect as much lights as possible, and adding a reasonable amount of electrical. It did NOT involve touching any of the exterior walls or the floor and that was by design. The idea was to retain as much of the original building’s character as possible.

Total construction only took about 2 months and during that time we were able to assemble a close group of talented photographers to utilize the space. That is also when I began designing the use of the space with lifestyle settings, picking out furniture, and most importantly – picking out light fixtures that would make it unique and exceptional.

Ultimately the space ended up going from an idea on paper to inception in about two months!
