Darius B. booked a photoshoot for 3 people
The space is compact but has all that one needs. IT has a make up desk, wardrobe hangers, shouji screens furniture. you name it. There is also a lot of ways to get creative wit the space you do have. I wouldn't recommend it for shoots with more than 3 models. Pretty good for the price.
Hilary K. booked a photo shoot for 3 people
This is a great space, and was perfect for the project I was doing. Leon was extremely helpful and kind, and patiently answered all my (many) questions and requests beforehand. The space of tidy and organized, and if well stocked with all the gear I needed. Will book again!

Really great space. You will not find more value for the price. Leon is very helpful and you have tons of backdrops, lights, and tools at your disposal.
Alex B. booked a video interview for 3 people
The space is fantastic and loaded with TONS of incredible thoughtful additions, everything from light-stands to bottles of water. The host Leon was an incredible and generous host. The only issue we had was with significant noise coming in from right the foot traffic right outside the studio, which at times significantly impacted our video interview. Would not recommend for video projects that require audio, but for other projects it's a phenomenal space.
Ricardo N. booked a photoshoot for 2 people
I'm a director and a friend asked to take pictures of her. Ive only tried out photography a couple of times. I've even booked other places on peerspace to shoot photography to help another friend. Every studio has there features and space, but shooting here was really a great experience. Leon took the time to show me all the safety measures and precautions to take. Showed me all my options. (Rental comes with two lights!) Also Leon stayed until I took my first couple of pictures, to make sure there was no issues. Also I had 3 background set up at the same time as well. Leon made sure I was fully ready. We all wore masks, the space the clean. Now, I am more confident as a photographer, and if more friends ask for help or need a space. I'll know who to point to. Again, great place. Great people. Will come back.
