lifestyle shot in an apartment space

I know this is extremely last minute, but is this space available tomorrow morning for one-two hours? My studio fell through and I need to shoot a quick lifestyle shot of a model in an apartment space for my meditation company I'm starting. We just have to take a couple shots of the model sitting on a meditation cushion (my product). Your space is beautiful, zen, and perfect for what I'm looking for!

seasonal lookbook photo shoot

I work at a women's wholesale fashion company and we do seasonal lookbook shoots for our ecommerce sites and attend trade shows. We were interested in this location for a photo shoot with a small crew of 6 people (our hair and makeup artist would leave at 1pm) with about 40 looks to shoot. Equipment would be light with the following: 1 clothing rack, 1 steamer, couple luggages of clothes and either using just natural light or 1 light/reflector. The time would be from 9am-5pm and we're mindful of not starting earlier or leaving the premises no later than the scheduled end time. Finally, I'd like to check with you how many parking spots would be available at your location. Since we are all coming from different locations, there could be anywhere from 3-5 cars depending on whether we're able to carpool and if the model would be arriving via uber or driving.

small test shoot with an actress

I am a small business photographer mainly. The shoot I have planned tomorrow is just a small test shoot with a model /actress. I'll be bringing a few of my own lights, stands and modifiers but other than that is a simple shoot. nothing that'll dirty up the place. I just want a nice clean, well light space.

last-minute test photo shoot on DSLR

I am a photographer and I have a potential last minute test shoot in the evening on Monday the 8th we will do a bit of stills and a bit of motion no large set up couple umbrellas all shot on DSLR. Can you tell me the floor plan roughly of your space like length and width of the entire studio and the height of the ceiling? Or if you have a floor plan you can send that too. Also what is the power situation do you have 100 AMPS of power?
