Built by your host, Peter, this New York based studio offers professional photography studio rental for photo shoots and video productions. Included in the rental fee is a large selection of professional lighting for both still photography and video production. The studio features a custom made white cyc (infinity wall), large windows with sw exposure, a center room skylight with sliding black out shutter, built-in hair & makeup station, wardrobe rack, a professional clothes steamer, and a large, private bathroom with shower. The space converts from a natural daylight studio to a full black out in just a few minutes. Most of the equipment in the studio, (lights, stands, sandbags, reflectors, etc.), is included with your rental. The "In house" equipment includes a full selection of daylight balanced strobes & continuous lights (both par and kino type) and a variety of modifiers so you can move seamlessly from still photography to video work. You can set the lights up on your own or, if you’re new to studio lighting or just need to be shooting as soon as possible, I can help you get the lights setup and make sure everything is working properly. Either way, if you have any questions either setting up or during your shoot you can always find me in my office off the side of the studio or by calling my cell phone if I stepped out. In addition to the included equipment, a Canon 5d Mark II with L lenses and support gear, color backgrounds, a green screen, a black back drop and atmospheric effects are also available for an additional rental fee. Located at the intersection of Williamsburg and Bushwick in Brooklyn's creative hub, the studio is easily accessible by subway or car. By subway take the L Train to the Jefferson. By car we're located on Johnson Ave between Varick and Stewart. Street parking is available. ______________________________________________ STUDIO EQUIPMENT INCLUDED IN THE RENTAL ______________________________________________ PHOTO LIGHTING (daylight balanced): 2 - Einstein 640 Mono Block Strobes with Wireless Triggers and Choice of Modifiers (note that 2 more Einstein's are available for an additional fee for a total of 4) Modifiers For Einstein Strobes: 2 - Strip Boxes w/Grids 1 - Beauty Dish w/Grid 1 - 84" Soft Silver PLM Parabolic w/Diffusion Panel 1 - Medium Parabolic 1 - Small Octabank 1 - Cyc Scoop 1 - Snoot 4 - Reflectors and Grids (ALL MODIFIERS COME WITH PAUL C.

The cyc wall and floor is painted white and is repainted about once every other week but It does get scuffed through normal wear and tear and may have marks on it when you show up. (these usually won’t show up in your photo's) If you need the cyc in close to perfect condition we can repaint the cyc wall and floor white the night before your session for a $30 painting fee. Please let us know 24 hours in advance if you'd like this service. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT EVERYONE IN YOUR GROUP KNOWS NOT TO STEP ON THE CURVED PART OF THE CYC WHERE THE FLOOR MEETS THE WALL. ALSO PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH THE BACK WALL OR SIDE WALL AS YOU WILL LEAVE MARKS. If you have to touch the walls or step on the curved part of the cyc and you leave marks (and you will leave marks) there is a $30 “touching/stepping fee" to do that. I know that’s a lot about the CYC. Sorry to go on about it. Everybody benefits by keeping the cyc in good shape and you’re help is appreciated! On a related subject, if it doesn’t have wheels please don’t drag it on the studio floor or cyc area. Any furniture or equipment that you need to move should be picked up, carried and placed. Please make sure that you return anything that you move to it’s original location before you leave. I no longer allow glitter in the studio unless you’ve established a specific arrangement with us. (it takes a month to get rid of it) Also please clear it with me before doing anything with fire, liquids, paint, wind or smoke in your shoot. If you have your kids with you please note that the studio is not kid proof. The studio is built for adult use so please take extreme care if you have any kids in your group and make sure that you have an eye on them at all times. It’s important that anyone operating any equipment know what their doing. If you’re not sure about something please ask first. I’m always happy to help out. Please leave the studio in the same condition you found it in. Throw away all trash and take all your things with you. If you leave a mess you may be charged a $30-$50 cleaning fee. Your rental time should include the time you need to wrap but I know that it doesn’t always work out that way. If your running late I do allow a 20min grace period so you can finish wrapping up without going into overtime. Even if you are running late you can’t keep shooting past your scheduled time with out checking with me to see if overtime is available. If you think you’ll need extra time try to let me know as early as possible. Overtime is billed at a rate of 1.5 x the standard hourly rate. And finally! "You" (the person renting the studio) are responsible for the studio and it's contents as well as the actions and safety of "Your Group” (including all the other people in the studio with you). "You" individually assume all responsibility and all liability for any damage, theft or injuries, whether negligent or not, that occur during your scheduled time as a result of your actions or of the actions of anyone else in "Your Group". In renting the studio "You" promise to personally reimburse the studio for repair or replacement costs relating to the damage or loss of any studio property that occurs during your rental time. "You" hereby certify that studio equipment will only be operated by qualified studio technicians in a manner that is safe for everyone in the studio. All equipment must be operated with due care in a manor that does not exceed the capabilities of the studio or it's electrical system. Please take note of the condition and arrangement of the studio and it's contents when you arrive as "You" are responsible for returning the studio to the condition in which you found it and "'You"agree to pay a cleaning fee of $30-$50 if you have not put the studio back in proper order by the time you leave. Finally "You" agree to ensure that you, "Your Group" and all of your property will be out of the studio by the end of your session and "You" agree to pay any overtime fees that you incur as a result of staying in the studio past your rental period. We are not responsible for any property left in the studio after your session. Thanks in advance for your cooperation. -Peter
This was an amazing location with not just an impressive stage, but a stylized and welcoming offstage that was fitting for our shooting that was requiring the offstage style of shooting. We booked for three hours but went over and the owner was very accommodating for the extra time he had available. The owner was also helpful requesting lighting looks when I was unsure. Many thanks to the owner and would come back.
This location was perfect and clean. Peter was knowledgeable, helped us set up lighting and the space had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend to others and work here again!
