PROFOTO Photo and Video Production Studio. We have top of the line Profoto equipment (not the cheap Alien Bees like our competitors). We have a wonderful 650 square foot studio/event space for rent in Downtown Oakland's famous city center and theater district. We are located in front of the Frank H. Ogawa Plaza park, facing Oakland's beautiful city hall. We are also just 50 ft from 12th Street City Center BART station. There is an ADA compliant bathroom and we are right at street level so no stairs or funny access to worry about. Just walk in off the street and you're here. Inside our space, we have 14' high ceilings, a hair/makeup table, and 2 large mirrors for clients to use. The studio is fully stocked and comes with two Profoto 600ws flashes for photos or two 3000 bi-colored dimmable LED constant light panels for videos (please tell us which you will need for your rental, or if you will use your own equipment is okay too). We also have ample photo, video, audio, and lighting equipment if you want to record your event or stream it online. We have a 42" TV, a video projector, and up to 6800ws of Profoto flash power to rent if needed with a small added fee. Used or dirtied background seamless paper is $4/ft unless you’re using our photo/video services also. PRICING: Just $50/hr on Weekdays between 9am-6pm $65/hr on Weekends and Weekdays after hours. Rental time is strictly entry to exit time. COVID-19 Community Commitment and Continuity We’re available and committed to help/serve as much as we can during the current time. We’re constantly sanitizing our space with anti-viral cleaning products, Merv-13 air filters, and UV light sterilization before and after space usage and we also provide hand sanitizers, gloves, and masks for our guests. Please make sure to use hand sanitizer (or wash your hands for min 20sec in the bathroom) upon arrival to our space, and remind all production staff to wear masks and physically distance at all times. Talent being filmed or photographed are the only people who do not need to wear masks at all times. Due to “Shelter In Place” and for the safety of our staff to minimize traveling, our minimum hours requirement will be 3-hours during this lockdown period on weekdays and weekends. We may be flexible depending on the number of guests and whether you need to use our equipment. Remember this is entry to exit time and needs to include set-up and clean-up time which usually takes 15-20min, so if you have a 2-hour shoot, you will need about 3-hours from start to finish.

Kiana G. booked an event for 12 people
First of all.........LEON...the property host.......is.....FANTASTIC! Communication is on point! Very nice & helpful throughout the entire process. The place was great for my event.
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!

Vincent G. booked a video shoot for 3 people
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.
