Explore the best Vancouver studios for portrait photography

Portrait photography is the art of telling the story of a subject solely through the visual medium. That story might be one of beauty, one of corporate professionalism, a lifestyle narrative, or the journey of motherhood through maternity photography. What unites all portrait photography subgenres is the need for an artistic photoshoot location.
Portrait photography studios give artists complete control over the light environment and the privacy and comfort the model expects. There won't be any wind or rain to mess up the hair or outfits of your models. Plus you'll have changing rooms, bathrooms, makeup stations, and other comforts to ensure your portrait session is a success!

The best places to shoot portrait photography in Vancouver

Portrait photographers need a space with the right amenities for a good session! These include light modifiers, electric lights on stands, stools for models to sit on, studio backdrops, and more. Good portrait studios are designed from lofts, creative studios, classrooms, offices, and other spaces with a flexible design plan.
Most are rather intimate venues ideal for genres like maternity photoshoots but some can comfortably house dozens of people for a high end fashion or lifestyle portrait shoot where you need a runway, high powered lighting, and multiple assistants operating equipment. Portrait studios can be rented for as little as an hour of time, making them easy and affordable places to have a photoshoot.

Discover corporate portrait photography in Vancouver

Corporate portrait photography is a little different from other styles since it relies on capturing a more consistent look. These portraits convey competence and polish along with the unique elements of their subjects. Since a good corporate portrait photographer is a master of light and composition they rely on photo studios where they can keep their subjects comfortable and the light coming from just the right direction!
Rent a portrait photography studio with natural light in Vancouver Natural light has romantic qualities that make it ideal for portrait, fashion, product, food, and lifestyle photography. Vancouver's frequent drizzles and wind make working outdoors rather unpleasant, however. Fortunately the city has plenty of photo studios that have skylights or large windows that allow natural light to enter. The studio will also come equipped with light modifiers to better control that light.
Make sure you check with the studio owners on the best times for natural light access since the seasons and directions the windows are facing will determine the quality of that light.

ATARAXIA Loft - Photo Studio + Video Space
the variety of props/chairs/backgrounds/lighting/equipment honestly made for a range of transitions we added in with our shots. The space does get warm during the summer even with the fan and windows open so heads up about that. Overall would recommend again...
