Photo studio gets OK from boards

WILTON- Ken and Shari Smith of Intervale Road have been given permission to operate a wedding and portrait photography studio as a home occupation. The Zoning Board of Adjustment approved the plan Tuesday, adding a restriction that no darkroom or developing chemicals be on the site, and client visits are by appointment only, and limited to 10 visits per week.

On Wednesday, Ken Smith told the Planning Board that darkrooms are “archaic; no one does that any more,” and if necessary, he has access to the darkroom at the Wilton-Lyndeborough Cooperative High School.

He said all of his business is by appointment. He added he plans to have high school interns, as part of the School to Careers Program.

The Planning Board approved the plan.
