Delroy M. booked a video shoot for 4 people
This is a great studio, with multiple set pieces and accessories in all 4 walls of the room. Its about 413 sqr feet like it says in the description but didn’t think about it at all because it has everything you need including back-drop. I mainly deal with with video so bouncing the light on the white surface was perfect for creating soft diffusion, easpecialy when its dark and you use your own lights. Marcus was an amazing host, he provides extra light stands and a moving C-stand if you need to mount some lighting. All furniture is clean and relatively new, my clients felt very comfortable letting go in this environment. Lastly we finished our project at 10:30pm and safely loaded up our equipment at ease with no worries about safety. Its a great location to bring people to work. Can’t go wrong.
Taylor G. booked a photo shoot for 2 people
This space was exceptional! It was very clean, there were so many options for backgrounds to choose from as well as different settings. The lighting was really bright and incredibly helpful to shooting photos. The best part, was the very very helpful host Marcus. He was the most hospitable host Ive had through peerspace. He helped us with parking IN THE RAIN as well as got me and my photographer acquainted with the space. It’s also the easiest booking as well. I’d give this 10 stars if I could. Marcus was amazing!

Sarah B. booked a photo shoot for 2 people
I had a shoot at this studio about a week ago and was blown away! So many options for “scenes” and props between the huge windows with natural light and the adorable sofa and multiple backdrops. Our host was super helpful in finding the entrance and getting us set up! If you’re looking for a space in Tacoma you have to check this studio out!
