A bright, creative, and inspired environment for your next photo shoot, video shoot, casting, workshop, or production meeting. Located in the North East part of San Francisco's Mission District the studio is in a stand-alone, single unit building with a one-car garage and easy street level access. The studio features warm red brick walls, hardwood floors, large skylights with blackout blinds, high ceilings, full kitchen and a tasteful mix of modern and antique furnishings. The main room is set back from the street, away from traffic noise. We are within easy walking distance of BART, MUNI lines, cafes, and restaurants. Originally built in the 1920's as the Nederland Bakery, it became Klub Komotion in the mid-80's and played an important role in San Francisco's alternative art and underground music scene up until the mid-90's. In 2000 the interior of the building underwent extensive remodeling into its current incarnation. We love that this space has hosted and continues to be a part of so many groundbreaking and creative projects. We have been working with professional photographers, videographers, and producers for over ten years. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

The studio space was exactly as pictured. It had a great amount of natural light from the skylights. The flexibility of both the brick and white walls helped with our video shoot. It was nice to have so much production equipment already provided within the studio on hand such as C-stands, boom, sound blankets and boards to help with our shoot. The echo in the space was difficult to eliminate, but we did our best with the materials at our disposal. Marty and Angela were quiet, respectful, and helpful hosts during our shoot.
Excellent space and excellent hosts! Their studio was perfect for our team off-site of 15 people. We've used a lot of Breather rooms before and this was much nicer. Would highly recommend!
We hosted a 15 person meeting at this space and it went super! The space has not windows but the sky lights provide the perfect lighting. The space is open and big and the brick walls give it a nice modern feeling. Most importantly, the hosts were super helpful and attentive.
Marty and Angela are terrific hosts! I was able to stop by prior to my meeting and make sure all my tech needs worked without any issue. They were super accommodating and friendly to work with. It was perfect for my small training and everyone loved the loft space compared to being in a typical hotel conference room. I would definitely use this space again.
Angela & Marty went above and beyond to make this a great, stress-free experience. They were super responsive in the time leading up to our day in their space, made themselves available throughout the day to help and answer questions, and worked to provide us with anything we may need (coffee, ladders, etc.). Not to mention their space was perfect for filming a video. Thank you for being such great hosts!
Amazing studio space for our company photoshoot. The brick and lighting is simply beautiful and the owners were very accommodating in anything we may need. Highly suggest this place for your next shoot or project! Our small team really enjoyed the space, thank you!!
