Our 1,500 sqft studio is in the heart of Capitol Hill! It has a 20x15 corner cyc-wall, freshly painted, for consistently beautiful imagery. Strictly for studio lighting, no natural light - but feel free to pop outside, shoot a little, get some fresh air & maybe grab a coffee from Vita just around the corner ;) Neighborhood/Parking Street parking in the area is 2-4 hour parking limits, free after 8pm. There are a few garage options: garage near Seattle Central campus, lot near Rancho Bravo, and another garage near The Garage. There are plenty of options in the neighborhood to get your shoot ready as well! Vita and Little Oddfellows for coffee, Mario's and Rancho Bravo for quick bites, Oddfellows for meetings & post-shoot wrap-ups, QFC for food & beverage cart needs, and Pacific Hardware for any last minute equipment needs. Arrival The building entrance is a glass door to the left of The Sweatbox Hot Yoga. Go through, all the way down the hall, take a right, and the studio will be the very last door on your left (after Sway & Cake). A sign will be on the door, "welkem studio, Studio D." Please lock up & return the key to the safe box whenever you leave the studio and when you are completely done shooting. Space Loading in/out will be quick & easy, since we are street level. The floors are concrete. There's a station dedicated for wardrobe, hair & make-up. The studio has a functioning communal workspace where some people may be using during your production, so feel free to use the curtains or v-flats for any necessary privacy. The kitchen has a Brita for filtered water, as well as, coffee and tea, free at your leisure, accompanied by a hot water dispenser. Equipment We have a Harman Kardon Bluetooth speaker for wireless listening, pair-able w/ any device. Along w/ the cyc-wall (12x10), the matte black wall & the white brick wall also offer good opportunities to quickly bring variety to your shoot (see photos). You'll have access to all of our grip equipment included with rental: multiple colored seamless, seamless stands, 9 C-Stands, a Norman Superboom stand, 4 Apple Boxes, sandbags, clips, v-flats, flags, reflectors, gaff and duct tape, white bench, and 2 plywood boxes; short & tall. Lights are not included in the rental but can be negotiated on request. Send a message! We'd love to hear from you :)
Studio must be cleaned and left as you came in. Trash and recycle are located in the kitchen area near the sink. No open flames or smoke; candles, oil lamps, joints, cigarettes, pipes, etc (vaporizers are ok). Alcohol OK, just be responsible. Music must be played at a courteous level. Lock the door behind you upon departure. And please have fun!
Really neat space and the owners are incredibly nice to work with! Super easy to get in/out of the building too. The ONLY reason we had to go down to 4-star was due to the noise. It was very loud in the Studio and it made it near impossible for us to record audio. I'd highly recommend this space for photo shoots, but for any recording that needs audio you may want to take a trip to the building and listen first to ensure it won't screw up your booking. Otherwise, very good deal and we'd contemplate going back for company head shots. Thanks much!
Good space. Easy to find, easy to book. One thing that I didn't realize is that other people would be in the space talking, working, etc. We had a nice time using the space, but felt a little like we were intruding with them sitting in the corner basically waiting for us to leave, and having clients in and out.
