The Daylight Studio is wonderful. Horst is a friendly and kind host, as he graciously showed me around the studio. Horst left a lot of helpful notes around the studio, which was nice. Communication was excellent, as Horst was quick to respond to any questions I had, about the studio. Thank you! -Miss Camisha Jackson Professional Model & Entrepreneur

The space is exactly as pictured - spacious, clean, and well-equipped. Horst was a very good host. He accommodated my room setup requests and was very communicative throughout the entire process. This was a great experience overall.
