Actual photo studio bookings

furniture photo shoot

We're interested in booking this studio for our upcoming shoot. We just had a question around what's featured in the photo -- we really love the furniture in the photos, is that part of the studio or would the studio be completely empty? We'd just need to know before we book.

small photo shoot

I am art directing a small photo shoot on this Friday. My team and I are looking for a shoot location and wanted to check the availability of your space for that date. We will be bringing some styled pieces with us (small bed, throw pillows, a blanket, framed photos, small pieces of furniture, etc.) The team is me, the photographer, one model, and possibly one makeup artist.

cosmetics brand photo shoot

I work for a cosmetics brand. We are looking for a space to do our photoshoot and came across your studio. I just had a question in terms of equipments. Is it possible to see what your equipment list is? We just want to make sure we have everything that we need for this photoshoot. Also can you please let me know the parking situation as well?

acoustic band recording and shoot

I'm interested in renting the space out for just two hours on Saturday. I'll be helping my friend's acoustic band record three of their songs for an application they're applying for. I was wondering how many windows the studio had and which way they face? In other words, is there still light coming into the studio by the end of the day? Or do the windows face away from the sunset? Let me know if you need any other information from me, your studio is pretty perfect for what i'm looking for!
