Marla Rutherford's Studio is a modern, fully outfitted, ADA compliant photo studio and creative space located in the heart of North Boulder. 1,000-sf of open industrial-feel space and high ceilings allow for ample creative freedom. The floors are newly laid concrete with a beautiful dark gray glossy finish. The space is climate controlled with surround SONOS music. Your rental includes Wi-Fi, an on site Studio Manager, use of kitchenette/bathroom, vanity, privacy shades, SONOS sound system, reserved parking, use of a white or grey seamless backdrop, and grip equipment (full grip list listed below). (Conference tables, padded fold up chairs and projector are available for an additional fee.) The Studio is approximately 1,000 square feet of renovated space available for hourly, half or full day rentals. The studio is available to the general public for small events, business meetings, seminars, or photographers/videographers and other creatives. We are located in North Boulder, Colorado. To the West of the studio is a short walk to Spruce Confections Coffee and Proto’s Pizza (the best pizza around). To the East is a beautiful dog park where clients and their pets can get some fresh air. STUDIO FEATURES AND AMENITIES LOUNGE SPACE / KITCHENETTE / RESTROOM Upon entering the studio you will find a cozy corner lounge outfitted with two occasional use chairs and two mustard velvet dining chairs (all of which you may absolutely utilize in your photoshoot.) The lounge may be used as space for your clients or for an additional naturally lit shooting area. Soft Northern light comes in through these windows. Our kitchenette was custom designed to fit the studio space and is equipped with a sink, mini fridge, microwave and dishwasher. We ask that large groups (5+) bring their own cutlery and dishware to utilize for longer shoots. The Lights above the kitchen table are custom built by local artist Mitch Levin with High Voltage from barrel drums. We welcome you to utilize the most beautifully designed custom bathroom in Boulder -- where the entire design revolved around the funky floor tile. The space is perfectly lit to make your talent feel flawless every time they look in the mirror as well as for a backup vanity station. We offer ample hand sanitizer and lotion for last minute hydration as well. We constantly strive for ways to improve our environmental footprint and thus use small fresh rolled towels in our restroom instead of paper towels. We also have the most beautiful bathroom door in Boulder which was custom made from maple reclaimed truck flooring by StoneTree Co. The metal hook, lock and custom pieces around the bathroom door were locally made from the Boulder Artist Mitch Levin with High Voltage. The bathroom sink was custom created by local ceramic artist Michael Linsley with Art Drenched Life. SEAMLESSES A white or grey seamless (107”x36’) is included with your photo rental. If you wish to add-on additional seamless colors you may do so at $65.00 per color. We are also more than happy to preorder any color of your choice to be ready for you in the studio for $120.00 per color (107”x36’ only). VANITY Our custom-made vanity station will make any hair/makeup artist or talent feel right at home. The vanity table measures 46” x 25” and the oversized mirror 33” x 35”. The vanity is surrounded with bright warm daylight temperature bulbs.

Marla Rutherford's Studio in North Boulder was the perfect creative space for our magazine cover photoshoot! From initial inquiry to the end of our production, our team experienced fantastic customer service with attentive and proactive support. As for the space, it truly speaks for itself. The modern open floor-plan is a blank canvas for creativity. With great north facing natural light and black-out shades, the possibilities for production are endless. Additionally, the kitchen area and bathroom are immaculate. The make-up booth and waiting area will make your subjects feel comfortable and professional. Several members of our team mentioned that they wished they could move in! Grip, grip, grip! For this project, our team not only needed a studio but some important pieces of grip gear. Marla Rutherford's Studio had everything we needed and more! Our requested grip was ready to go for us upon arrival. In summary, if you are in need of a great studio for your next project, I'd strongly recommend Marla Rutherford's Studio.
