Industrial creative space and studio right in the heart of Little Italy, San Diego – Our 1,100 square foot studio is ideal for photography and videography shoots. We offer a spacious setting with 13' high ceilings and a 15' x 11' cyclorama wall (white infinity wall), and a 107" 3 roller wall-mounted paper backdrop system. Our goal is to offer a versatile rental facility for creatives who seek to go deep into their creative process. Space is optimal for controlled studio lighting and does not have any natural lighting. Additional included features are a small speaker system, wall-mounted sound diffusers, and studio curtains for maximum privacy. Our studio entrance features a roll-up door and a ramp for easy load-in/load-out of additional equipment. Use of paper roll backdrops is a $15/color flat fee, and with advanced notice we can accommodate special color requests for the backdrops. If you desire a different color on the cyclorama wall, we will happily do it for an additional $100 charge which covers paint and labor. You will need to give us at least 72 hours notice so we can make sure it doesn't interfere with another client's shoot and to give us adequate time to paint/dry/prepare. Use of the cyclorama wall is an additional $30 flat fee. We repaint the wall after each client for the optimal photoshoot. This fee covers labor and cost of paint, and can be added into your booking in our add-ons section. Our space also offers a private changing area. Please note that our bathroom is in our building but detached from the space. Studio has been used for Photoshoots, Magazine shoots, Product shoots, Film Productions, Music Videos, Music/TV sets, Private Shoots, Modeling, Casting Calls, Auditions so far -- and know we're flexible and open to your ideas. We have a list of add-ons that can be rented including Profoto professional lighting systems, a professional sound system, additional entertainment lighting, strobe lighting, and fog machine. As an up and coming creative hub of San Diego, Little Italy’s street parking can be limited, however there is ample paid parking in the Little Italy area and convenient load in/load out for your equipment and guests.

This space was perfect for our 12hr photo+video shoot. Matt & Erica were welcoming and accommodating and the studio space they have created flows really well. I'm so happy with the work we made here and can't wait to book again!
Chelsea M. booked a photoshoot for 2 people
LippsStudio is a prime example of a studio who pays attention to detail. I am EXTREMELY PLEASED with my accommodations made at this studio for a last minute 3 hour shoot. Not only were the managers attentive but they allowed me to stop-by the night before to set up lighting equipment & a quick refresher on how to use the equipment for efficiency purposes. Upon arrival I was shocked to see Matt & Erica repainting the Cyc wall. I have rented from other studios in the past who acted like a turn & burn type of studio and only repainted cyc walls, once a week or depending on the severity of marks and footprints. Matt shared that Lipps repaints the cyc wall after every customer and use. A task that took me extra hours at the computer to clone and stamp out footprints on every image, made me realize, LIPPS CARES! Day of service, the studio has bluetooth speakers, water bottles stocked in the mini fridge and access to a private dressing room. I’d like to note this rental was made during Covid-19 and Matt took our temperatures before entering the studio and waited outside the door during our rental time, but was readily available if need be! Without a doubt they will become my go-to studio services in San Diego moving forward!

One of the best peerspace hosts we’ve experienced. Erica went over and beyond to accommodate our production. Convenient location as well. Would highly recommend!
