2nd time shooting at this studio. As the first time, it was great to deal with Erica as she was responsive (even last minute inquiry) and accomodating. Definitely recommend the place. I mostly used the space as a traditional studio - just killed the ambient light with my camera settings and used the white wall as the background and it worked out well.

Space was just as pictured- just what we were looking for. It has good lighting and it was clean. The only thing is that the elevator did not work, so heavy equipment was carried up two flight of stairs-- this is okay as long as you have enough people to help out. The building had clean, easily accessible bathrooms. For taking a lunch break, the studio is located in a place with a good selection of restaurants. The overall experience and interaction with Erica were positive. I would book again!

Beautiful space. Lots of room to move and so clean! Lots of natural light as well! The only thing we struggled with was walking up and down the 3 flights of stairs with our stuff but other than that the rental was excellent.
