It is shared with a wonderful makeup artist and her team, who may or may not be present during your rental. While the room in which they work is separate from the main studio, they will need to walk through the main studio to access their space. Please do not use their space unless permitted to do so.

If you do reserve this room, you must reserve it for the entirety of your booking. ________________________________________________________________________________________ TWO HOUR MINIMUM, NO EXCEPTIONS ________________________________________________________________________________________ NO TOURS FOR BOOKINGS UNDER SIX HOURS _______________________________________________________________________________________ I do not charge a cleaning fee, as production usage generally does not require a heavy clean-up of the studio. You may leave trash in the trash can; otherwise, everything else must be reset to the state in which it was found. A map and reference images will be available in the studio. Failure to reset the room will result in a $75 resetting fee. ________________________________________________________________________________________ REGARDING COVID-19 -Masks are required in the main building as well as the studio; please only remove if absolutely necessary. -The number of people allowed in the space has been capped at 10 for the time being. For everyone's safety and to curb the spread of this disease, please do not exceed this number. We will absolutely be checking the security camera to count attendance; numbers over five will be contacted and charge immediate overtime. -Due to the low-contact nature of most photography, the space will not be clinically sanitized after each use and a cleaning fee will not be charged. However, hand sanitizer, disinfectant spray, and wipes will be provided. Please use these to clean any surfaces or equipment you touch or have touched. -Based on the CDC guidelines regarding Coronavirus's survival on surfaces, bookings must be spaced at least three days apart. If your request does not meet these guidelines, you will be required to choose a different date and time. -Stay safe and healthy! ________________________________________________________________________________________ ALSO: While rates START at $85/hr, they are higher on the weekends, due to high demand.

Aysia M. booked a photo shoot for 4 people
Nile's space is probably the best I've used in Boston. Accommodating, clean and impressive studio. Nile is super thorough with his instructions and doesn't leave you needing to ask any questions. Everything is laid out for you before your shoot. Would absolutely book again next time I'm in town for work!

Deb J. booked a photo shoot for 3 people
The space was beautiful, very spacious, great setup for photoshoot, with lots of amenities included. There was very good lighting even on a cloudy day which was a plus. Nile was wonderful in providing information for the rental and providing great instructions on how to get to the studio, and Katie was friendly and very helpful in answering questions we had once we got there. I will definitely book this studio again for more photoshoots in the future.

This space was great - and Nile was a pleasure to deal with! From all the questions I had before we booked till we ‘checked out’ - he was on the ball, friendly and VERY accommodating. Would definitely recommend.
