Our south and west-facing windows provide consistent, natural light throughout the day, creating the perfect ambiance for your next shoot or event. THE FOUNDATION Our large shooting area with 13-foot ceilings and clean white walls is the perfect backdrop for your next shoot. Hand-picked flooring reflects light cleanly and evenly. You can keep it simple or use the space as a canvas and get creative. THE NOOK Outfitted with wainscotting, polished concrete floors, and modern furnishings, The Nook provides a refined backdrop to emulate an upscale living space THE ARCHWAYS Custom built archways use frosted glass backing to diffuse light, and include load-bearing sills for flexibility in posing. The sunlight shining through the hollow of the archways allows you to backlight your subject with ease. The first arch is 12 feet high and perfect for full-length poses. THE LOUNGE The Lounge is a co-working space design to encourage community. The 15-foot custom booth-style couch, cruelty-free blue suede upholstery, and mid-century-modern cafe tables provide a calm and comfortable atmosphere to work and connect. THE FURNITURE A rotating assortment of furniture and seating options make it easy to build your set and set the mood. THE WINDOWS Large floor-to-ceiling south and west-facing windows allow natural light to stream in and make the room bright and airy throughout the day. These large, unobstructed windows provide ample clean light in all weather conditions. Soft white curtains can be drawn to diffuse the light, and large reflective panels can be rolled into place to manipulate the incoming light. Surfaces are neutral toned to ensure bounced light is clean in colour. THE CHANGE ROOM Our private wardrobe styling room is complete with multi-level hooks, a backlit full-length mirror, and a steamer to ensure your clients or models feel their best.
