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. Welcome entrepreneurs, brands, agencies, photographers, influencers, creators and light-seekers!

Your space to be + create.

Find your light.

FACTORY STUDIO has affordable rates for everyone. Our minimal approach provides a staged, versatile room with a cool vibe that offers amateur and pro shooters the ease to focus more on their craft and less on expensive studio rentals. Our prices are prorated based on the number of hours you book so the hourly rate lowers as the number of hours you book goes up.

Because of the demand, weekends have a $5/hour higher rate than weekdays. However everything is negotiable so don't hesitate to ask for something that doesn't fit your budget!

⚡✩BYOG✩ (BRING YOUR OWN GEAR)
You provide the gear, we create the space...thats how it works. We are not a full service photography and equipment rental studio so make sure you pack EVERYTHING you need for your shoot. If there is any specific lighting you need, bring it. Otherwise the natural light is stunning!

⚡⚡NO FLASH/STROBE shooting after 6PM in fall/winter months, and 8PM in summer months. The residential building next door is very close and strobes firing at night is simply too intense and extremely annoying for the kind people who live there. Continuous lighting is ok, but no flash photography after dark.

Thank you for your cooperation!
