This brand new raw space is available for photoshoots, video shoots and films alike. The space features spacious 10.5' ceilings, conveniently available are large Men's and Women's bathrooms across the hallway from our studio, a large garment rack for wardrobe changes, a beautiful exposed brick wall, and a south-facing view of lower Manhattan & Williamsburg. You are welcome to bring your own reflectors, lighting equipment, etc, as the space has 24 outlets for all your powering needs. For now, we only offer a simple setup with a 10" white or black seamless background, 2 x Aputure Amaran AL528S LED lights [High color rendering LEDs (Ra≥95) / 5000lux/3ft; 1400lux/6ft; 620lux/10ft], and two 2-bank barn door light panels. The building dates back to the 1800s, where it was originally a Faber pencil factory. It has been completely renovated from the inside-out. New passenger elevators, freight elevator available as well. We are located one block from Transmitter Park with gorgeous views of the Manhattan skyline, 2 blocks from the East River Ferry and 2 blocks from the Greenpoint Station on the G Train. This space can be transformed into everything from a portrait photo studio to a living room for a film, or what your imagination can conjure up. If your budget is limited, we will try to accommodate your project. We pride ourselves in supporting independent filmmakers and photographers, from students to professionals.
Most importantly, please be on time. Your rental schedule includes your setup and breakdown time. This is a No Smoking, No Pets building. Space is not equipped with kitchenette/refrigerator. Any props, packaging or materials brought in for the shoot, must be disposed of by you and/or your production team. Otherwise, you can arrange for it to be picked up by a private trash removal company such as 1-800-Got-Junk. Thanks!
This was my first Peerspace booking and I loved it! Ken, our host, was wonderful to work with and got back to me so quickly during the booking process. The space had everything we could have wanted for our photo shoot (it’s bigger than it looks in photos, too!) and we all had a great time! Highly recommend.
The studio space was everything we could have hoped for. More spacious than its pictures, with great lighting and wonderful rustic/raw feeling. Kev was a great host and super helpful! Can't wait to use this space again for my next project.
