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 events (up to 30 guests) as well as offsite meetings or retreats. It has free wi-fi as well as a small kitchenette.

Cheshire was great to work with and helped us pull our last minute meeting together very easy. The space was perfect for our needs. Clean, charming and easy to get to. We’d definitely use this space again.
Maxim G. booked a photoshoot for 2 people
Beautiful daylight studio! The window light is soft, depending on where you shoot you can control contrast. Our host Cheshire warmed the studio for us in advance. Very good experience for my client and for myself. Love this place!

Filmed an interview here and the space was great! Cheshire was an accommodating and responsive host and all went smoothly for our team.
A great space as always! Clean, airy, spacious, and comfortable. Cheshire even let us house a few drinks in his kitchen for the next visit. He's a great host with a great space!
