Space is available by appointment only. No smoking or alcohol, please. Flooring is wood in most places and concrete in some places. If you use hairspray, please do so over the concrete. Hairspray makes wood very slippery very quickly. New York's a great city, but the sidewalks are tough. Unless you're the subject, please leave your shoes at the door. Peerspace cancellation, overtime, and insurance policies are honored. Please be sure to clean up and leave the space the way you found it. Thank you.

The studio and equipment were perfectly prepared. The space offers great natrual light, and you also have the option to darken it. Beowulf was a great, very helpful host. I can sincerely recommend the studio!
Beowulf was a great host and studio manager. The studio space was in A+ condition and his rental equipment was in top notch. I will definitely com back for another portrait shoot.
Highly recommended. Beowulf's studio is an excellent space, and Beowulf is himself a very gracious and accommodating host. The space was perfect for my needs. Not only is it easy to get to, but it's very quiet and really simple to work with. Studio shooting has never been easier for me, and I thoroughly appreciate how simple Beowulf made everything.
