𖦑 YOUR SPACE: Welcome to the LIGHT FACTORY STUDIO! A 700 sq/ft. hard loft creators space located in Toronto’s historic east end. Originally a knitting and textile factory in the early 1900s, this industrial-age gem has changed several times since the Second World War to be home to a furniture company, a greeting card manufacturer, and a pant factory. In 1997, it was converted into live-work artist studios. This brick + beam third floor walk-up has many unique features including 14’ ceilings, original hardwood floors, beautiful textured backgrounds, boho-vintage styling, and large industrial north-west facing windows making it ideal for that diffused golden-hour natural light. Every corner and wall is a curated mini set with carefully selected items for you to arrange and rearrange however you want. This location is ideal for fashion, editorial, and portrait photography, along with commercial film shoots. But more than just a vibing photography studio, it's also your versatile multipurpose space that can fulfill almost any creative need.

Location was beautiful. There was a bit of mix up they didn't send the entrance instructions so we were delayed but they promptly fixed the issue and gave us an extra half hour to shoot. Amazing natural lighting and large comfortable space to be creative.

Fantastic space with great natural light. Jack was incredibly accommodating and guided me through the process with my first booking. Appreciate it!

The photography light (not sure the exact name of it) wasn’t working which limited what our photographer could do. One of the reasons we rented the space was to access this light. Otherwise the space was nice.

Such a great find with a lot of texture and variety. Easy to set up different looks, while using either strobe lighting or natural light. Even on a dark snowy day.
