A lush artist parlour tucked away in Tribeca. Please click 'read more' for all the details about this space. Our studio is a fully decorated boutique Photo Studio and conveniently located in Lower Manhattan. Featuring artistic decor and curious details, this unique space is suitable for small photo and video shoots. The studio features one large, completely private room which is fully furnished and decorated. Beside the main room is one small room which can be used for production, or make-up or as a dressing room. Crew sizes of 8 or less is ideal, larger productions get pretty cramped, but chairs can be added in the hallway to allow for additional people. Available 7-days a week | 7am-10pm (firm) SPACE FEATURES - 280 ft² studio space - 14' x 20' rough dimensions - Controlled lighting - Elevator access - WiFi - Work table - Furnishings - Fridge - Restrooms CONVENIENCE Very conveniently located. Close to almost every subway. The A, C, E, N, R, Q, J, Z, 1 and 6 trains are all within 3 blocks. DAYLIGHT This studio has NO windows! ...But the photo shows a huge windowed balcony?! I know. Its a giant light box built into the wall for photo shoots. It looks and feels like sunlight streaming through the doors when it's on, but it's an illusion. Regardless of the actual time of day, you can control the light, easily changing the look from bright daylight to a subdued evening glow. MAKEUP ROOM Our small makeup room is available as an addition for $50/day ($30/hr when not using the studio) and can be used for makeup, holding, production, a dressing area, storage, or anything else you might require a bit of additional space for. This room can accommodate up to 4 people at a time. Please note, if you are using heating elements (steamer, curling iron, blow dryer, etc.) you will need to pull power from the main room. We are happy to help with this. Features: - Work Table - Mirror - 3 outlets (for charging only) - Seating SCHEDULING This studio is not a sound stage.

This space is truly one of a kind and I couldn’t be more thrilled at the quality of our experience. We will definitely be booking again and I highly recommend this space!!
Saveaya Sharon O. booked a photoshoot for 2 people
If I had to describe my overall experience in one concise sentence, then it would be the following: Things to Look at Studio is an urban oasis of boudoir noir! The furnishings are lush decor with very intricate detailing such as the wonderful antique Singer sewing machine desk. In addition to the stunning shanky atmosphere, the hosting and management were of the highest caliber. Burke and Ellis promptly responded to my request and were very organized and accommodating. Everything was seamless and well executed from securing booking to meticulous directions to space accessibility and checkout! Ellis arrived early and patiently waited outside for our arrival to ensure that we weren't lost and was so thoughtful to already have the studio heated:) Definitely book here! Much gratitude!
Jason W. booked a photoshoot for 3 people
A very nice location with plenty of street parking. The staff are really helpful to bring your shoot to life.
CASHIS Kayla W. booked a video shoot for 8 people
Very flexible and attentive to our needs for the video shoot. I will use the venue again. If you are planning to use the Ottomon in the video I suggest you bring linen (red or purple) as the holstery needs to be wiped down.
