Over 100 years old, car parts were assembled in our studio. The building's owner was a well known SF photographer and philanthropist who knew the value of providing an affordable, creative space for artists to work and thrive. His passion to protect this building and each space inside has always been an inspiration to us to do the same within the artist community in San Francisco. - ABOUT THE SPACE - Hundreds of well known artists have used our space to bring their creative visions to life. We have a beautiful, 17 foot white brick wall that even has a small crack from the 1989 earthquake. We resurfaced the original floors when we acquired this space and added the artist loft and gear storage area. Approx. 500sq. ft. of private shooting space fit for any type of production. Please feel free to ask us any questions about the space. - ABOUT THE ARTISTS - We are three professional photographers, creative directors and producers who have been using this incredible space to shoot commercial and personal photographic work going into our 3rd year. We have hosted local bands, poets, artists, corporate team off-sites, networking events, movie nights, photography critiques and even individual birthday parties. We have produced photography out of this space for hundreds of brands and clients including some of the most well known editorial magazines in The Bay Area. We are open to your ideas and hope our space can provide you with budgetary flexibility and creative freedom to do your best work! - SERVICES AL A CARTE - If you have questions about production crews or need help sourcing additional help from professional creatives/artists, please let us know. We have a roster of preferred vendors/freelancers, so it's likely we can set you up with the right folks that can fit your budget + enhance your production experience/final execution. - TAGGED ON INSTAGRAM - Here is a link to view images tagged at our studio: https://goo.gl/VsCv8Q - AUDIO RECORDINGS - Be aware that our studio functions inside of a community of artists and creative professionals. Though it is mainly super chill throughout the building, at any given time, there could be ambient sounds/noise not suited for professional/commercial quality audio recording.

Cliff was very responsive and I was able to book the space the day before. He helped me find the right package for equipment I needed at a very reasonable price. The space was perfect for my needs the photos turned out great! I'll be back here!
Absolutely loved this studio! It's very cosy and has everything you may need. Cliff is a great host! He was very helpful, and our communication was fast and easy! I would definitely shoot in this studio again and would recommend the space to my colleagues.
