Versatile Gallery is such a great space with good daylight. We have a photo shoot there and the staff are very helpful. Many of our crew stayed longer than expected on the shoot and got parking tickets but it's only $15 each. Pretty sweet surprise given it's a very tourist and historic scenic area.
