Our photography studio rental is intentionally super-affordable and not because of a lack of quality - we just have a different business model. In fact, we are routinely told by photographers, models, videographers, agencies, and casting companies that our studios are always clean, the equipment is great, and how they love what we are doing!

Helpful Notes:

*If you need a photographer for your shoot, check out our photographer services page and we can get you what you need!

*If you are shooting video, please contact us prior to booking as we want to make sure our studio is a good fit for your needs.

*If your shoot includes animals of any kind, large objects, motorcycles, or any other non portrait/table-top product item - please contact us prior to booking as we want to make sure our studio is a good fit for your needs.

*We carry 7ft wide rolls of seamless paper (except for white, we carry 9ft wide rolls as well). If you need a certain color in 9ft wide, you are more than welcome to bring your own.

*For a weeknight/weekend reservation, you can cancel your reservation up to 24 hours prior to your appointment time and receive a full refund. This can be done via the link on your confirmation email or in the online scheduler. There is no credit or refund given for cancellations inside of 24 hours prior to your appointment start time as that spot on the reservation calendar is effectively consumed as most anyone who was looking to book the studio saw that it was already booked and won’t be checking again. For a weekday daytime session, since we are resourcing staff and scheduling the studio just for your shoot, you will only receive a 50% refund. The remaining funds will go to pay the employee who was relying on those hours.
