Ken was a very obliging host. The space was very useful for a photos session and I noticed he also has a voice-over/vocal booth. The price was great! I would certainly recommend him and the space Kevin Cummings/Redhand Media
The space is beautiful and well-equipped. Perfect setting and many options. Ken, the host, is welcoming and accommodating. He jumped right in to help with whatever we needed. Great vibes and I will definitely be booking here again!
A fantastic and easily accessible space. The proprietor is friendly and very accommodating. I will absolutely be booking again. I could not be happier with my experience.
Great space and Ken was an incredible host. The photos don't do it justice, it's much more spacious than it appears. We got the all the footage we needed plus some. There's also a music studio inside which Ken let us film a few parts of the video in and it looked fantastic. Overall incredible studio, great pricing and great host. Will be booking again in the near future.
I rented this space for a maternity photo shoot and it exceeded my expectations. Ken was an amazing host, very attentive and helpful. It was such a pleasure meeting him. The space was bigger than I expected, with a beautiful brick wall and tons of natural lighting. The pictures simple do not do this space justice, I will definitely be booking this space again!
