"Oh, you think darkness is your ally. But you merely adopted the dark; I was born in it, moulded by it." -Bane This space is pitch black with the lights off, allowing you to shape and mold your light however you desire. Conveniently located in Seattle's historic SoDo neighborhood, this studio is ideal for product shoots, portrait shoots and smaller video shoots. Three of the walls are freshly painted white with a fourth white brick wall. There is a 12 foot white paper roll and a mid grey roll with one empty slot awaiting any color paper you want to bring in. This studio is a total production chameleon. There is no natural light and the studio is completely windowless, giving you total control over the environment. A small array of lighting equipment available upon request. Additionally, the building exterior is brick and west facing, making the exterior ideal for golden hour shots to accent the day's work. Our on site production manager is available for whatever you may need or any questions you have. Parking is provided for two vehicles (see notes in rules below). The freight elevator makes loading and unloading equipment a breeze. Want to check it out before you book? We are more than happy to offer a tour of any or all of our three studios, just ask! The studios are available by appointment only though, so make sure to schedule a time before coming by.
VIEWINGS: Feel free to come by and check out the space before booking! We are only open by appointment though, so make sure to schedule a time before coming by. BOOKING. Please book at least 12 hours in advance. YOUR TIME. Your booking starts and ends according to the booked hours. Please, don't be late for your session's start (we won't add missed time to your booking) and wrap up by the session's end to avoid overtime conditions. OVERTIME might be possible, and its duration completely depends on the studio schedule. Please inform us about possible or desirable overtime during the booking process, and we will see if it will fit in the studio schedule. Please, notice, if you start wrapping up after the end of the booking or just forget about timing - these are overtime conditions, and Peerspace will charge your card for additional 30 min at regular price. PENALTY: If we have next booking in 1 hr after yours and you go overtime, Peerspace will charge your card 1.5 regular rate. More about Overtime here: https://support.peerspace.com/hc/en-us/articles/203416869-How-does-overtime-work- NO SMOKING in the building or near the entrances, no open fire. Feel free to bring a fog machine if you need a smoke look. PARKING: We are located across the street from Safeco Field. This means we have to contend with sports and event parking. When there is nothing going on there is a huge parking lot and parking is free. During game days, however, we will do everything we can to provide two parking spots, but we can not guarantee parking availability. Please schedule your booking around games. Once a game has started it is usually no problem to park, but the three hours before a game can be an issue. Please contact us if you have any questions. EXTRAORDINARIES: If your project involves more than 10 people (+$5/hour for each extra person), furry/big/wild animals, sand/dirt/paint/glitter or similar materials, please, inform us beforehand so that we can work out a safe implementation. Possible cleaning fees will apply. DAMAGE! We don't charge safety deposit but we expect you to treat our space and equipment with care and be responsible for the damage that may occur. For example, if you broke Cycs plywood material, because you or some heavy equipment were standing or falling on its curves or walls you will pay $200 restoration fee, as a minimum. Regular wear and tear on the equipment is fine, but please let us know if anything breaks.

Keith is very accommodating, was always reachable, and overall a great guy to work with. Our studio did not have a changing room and he was open to us using that of a larger, bigger studio that he eventually let us use. Will defn work with him again.
This place was awesome and Keith was really easy to work with. Even helped us out with production a little bit when we couldn't figure out the lights! Will definitely be coming back to this space as it was perfect for what we were looking for. Thanks again Keith!
The space was just right for what we needed- clean, welcoming, and pretty much perfect! It was great to have the lighting equipment and seamless backdrops included. We felt both cared for and left alone just the right amount to focus on our shoot. Everyone was super friendly and flexible from the initial email to the day of the rental. I would definitely book this space again and their larger space looked great too. Fantastic rate and space! :)
AMAZING!! Keith and Corey were wonderful from booking to being able to answer any questions or last minute requests I had! When I found out I needed the space a hour earlier (8am on a Thursday) they made it happen and even tracked down a PERFECT grey background so my shots would really pop! They have two additional studios that I can’t wait to book for future projects. Two huge thumbs up from myself and my team, thanks guys!
A great, simple studio that is more than enough. Having the option to shoot in a pitch black room gives you tons of flexibility when shaping the light. The host were great offering me help carry my equipment up to the studio. Getting there was fast and easy and the free parking is a plus. Will book again.
