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.

This studio space had a lot more to offer than what we expected. In our case we were there for a video shoot and originally we just needed a space to set up a backdrop and shoot in front of. But once we toured the studio, we realized there were so many different ideas that we can come up with on the spot. It was the perfect place to improvise while also getting done what we originally had in mind. Would definitely recommend.

The space was perfect and worked great! It looked exactly like the listing. Parking was an ease with meters right outside. Cheshire was very polite and professional.
