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 space is my versatile photo studio where I do a variety of portraits (headshots to boudoir) and commercial work (all sample shots were done by me). The studio features 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 sample photos were all shot in the studio and show how creative the space can be, with different lighting and arrangements. Please ask if you're wondering how certain shots were created. The studio is also available for small offsite meetings or retreats. It has free wi-fi as well as a small kitchenette.

It's a great space to shoot small daylight shoots. Very clean and plenty of natural light options to work with. The host is very courteous and attentive. Plus the parking is easy.

Cheshire’s space was perfect for our needs! It was clean and in great condition. When I arrived Cheshire very kindly gave me a very detailed and friendly tour of the space, even sharing ideas for how to use various props that were installed. Booking was also super easy and Cheshire was really communicative. I’d be likely to come back for more shoots and to recommend it to friends if they need a studio space with natural light.
