Bright, airy studio near Lake Merritt
This is a cozy space with beautiful natural light, designed to look like a contemporary home and made to be comfortable particularly for boudoir sessions. Perfect also for headshots, lifestyle shots, fashion, and more. It also functions as a traditional photo studio, with a portable backdrop stand and many rolls of seamless; I've shot catalog shoots with multiple models.
Note for video producers: there is ambient noise from the street, but depending on what you're shooting, that could be no problem. Several renters have shot music videos there and loved it.
