Alec was a fantastic host and the space was better than I could have asked for. It had all of the things we requested and then some. Alec was accommodating and offered gear to rent, as well as other options for our shoot to fit our needs (and deal with the heat). I am excited to use Alec's studio again in the future. The shoot went perfectly, and half of that is due to the space we had and the amenities that were available to us. Thanks, Alec!
