This beautiful storefront studio is 600 square feet on the ground floor with a cozy 150 square foot loft upstairs. It's located in the Ivy Hill neighborhood of Oakland, close to Lake Merritt, downtown, and freeways, with very easy parking. Away from the crowded Grand Lake/Lakeshore area, Ivy Hill still has a funky neighborhood vibe, with a couple of great indie cafes within a block of the studio, a small park with playground across the street, and larger conveniences such as Walgreens and Lucky within easy walking distance. The newly renovated space is primarily a versatile photo studio with an elegant dressing room and space for makeup and hair. The main area is roughly 14' wide x 20' deep with 12.5' ceilings. It's large enough to do a fashion shoot and intimate enough to do headshots, boudoir, and more. While the overall vibe is clean and contemporary, there are tons of different areas within the studio to shoot lots of different looks. The studio is also available for small offsite meetings or retreats. It has free wi-fi as well as a small kitchenette.

Great place to shoot. Lots of possibility and nice natural lighting. The host was also very helpful. That’s the second time I use that studio and I’ll use it again.

What a fantastic location. After shooting for 4 hours I barely scratched the surface of photo opportunities. Cheshire was incredibly helpful. Can’t wait to shoot there again.

Such a great space. Cheshire was so helpful too! He was aware of the type of shoot we were trying to do and helped us by giving us much needed information about the neighborhood and the surrounding area. Now let me talk about the space, It's amazing! Such a unique environment for shooting and is perfect for so many types of shooting situations. We will be coming back!
One of the few places that are better than advertised. I'm adding this space to my favorites now. Gives you exactly what you need to get all of your visual imagery done. Five star.
