About

*NOTICE* Prices have been adjusted to INCLUDE TAX, so a rise of 13% (from $75/hr to $85/hr, $500/day to $565 day, and $50 to $57 service fee).

--!!--COVID-19 We are taking things seriously when it comes to sanitary precautions in the space. The studio is NOT a living space, and is cleaned and disinfected before and after every client. We consider our space a low risk space for business so we ARE staying open for business during this time. Also being a small business, closing our doors would be a tremendous hit so we appreciate your bookings despite it being a difficult time. Please refer to TOS cancellation policies if you have questions about that.

*ALL Saturday's and Sundays require min 2hr booking minimums.
*ALL Saturday's May onward are a min 8hr booking

-------
STUDIO is best suited for...
~Photography/Videography - Environmental, lifestyle and editorial photography and content curation
~Workshops
~Client meetings
~Small private business events, no personal parties (Max 30 people), full day bookings only, 9-5. I will be selective about what kinds of events are allowed, please inquire.

Furniture aside, you can utilize the white walls as a backdrop for a more simple set up. Furniture is destined to change position based on time of month as the space is transformative. Please inquire if you have any furniture layout requests, otherwise, you can expect a living room and dining room with the furniture featured, just perhaps in a different set up than featured.

*WARNING* I mean, consider this your warning, the space runs HOT. It's a century old factory building, it's heated by radiator which is controlled by landlord and on blast ALL day during cool months, also the unit faces the sun with no circulation in the summer, so it gets hot and I do my best but it's part of the buildings charm and out of my control so please, be warned and wear appropriate clothing and take my precautions below. You don't need to complain to me about it, I'm fully aware and have tried everything that I can afford ;).

*Winter Months* It's hot.
Unit is heated by radiator pipes and they are HOT!!! Please be careful and don't touch, lean things against, the pipes! If things get too hot, you can use the fans or open window, unfortunately there's no thermostat.

*Summer Months* It's hotter.
Because it is an old building and it faces south, it gets very hot from about noon - 3pm. The window opens, there is a small working window AC, and a dyson cool fan, but it's still quite hot despite. Just something to be aware of. Other times of the day it is still warm, but less so as sun is not directly shining in and there's less green house effect.

Photography ACCESSORIES include:
Clothing rack
Steamer
Backdrop Stand
Fabric backdrops (black, white, beige)
Paper rolls (Fawn + Dove Grey)

LIGHTING:
Does not include any lighting gear. Lighting is best from shortly after sunrise to a couple hours before sunset. In winter months I only shoot before 3pm for natural light. South facing windows will get direct light at floor level during the day. You can expect rainy days to be dim lighting in the unit as the only light for the studio is via the one window, so if it's dim outside, it's dim inside, please plan accordingly if you require your own lighting to accommodate for the weather condition.

My personal fav lens for this space (as a natural light photographer) is a 35mm 1.4, and a 25-70mm. 50mm would work strictly for portrait. Space is 13ft wide and 45 ft deep.

This space is so beautiful, and has so many little props and nooks and crannies that I wasn't expecting. It was really beautiful and thoughtfully crafted! The directions and tips Ashley sends, mixed with her instagram video "How To's" are so helpful for getting to know the space. Can't wait to go back!

The place is such a gem. Every detail in the apartment is so beautiful and sourced with love. The place is clean and tidy. The only drawback for us was the AC. It was very hot inside the studio and the old AC couldn't keep up with cooling down the room and we were hot the entire time. Hope it will be replaced with a new one soon.

Ashley is exceptional and my team and I were highly impressed by her details and great communication throughout our inquiry and shoot. I appreciated her willingness to respond even though she is away from the studio. The space is fresh, filled with beauty, curated items in every nook. The lighting definitely increases the warmth in the space (wear a tee if working and running around on set) but we loved the choices of props, detailing and interior layout. Just a magical space overall! We will be back soon. SAI @thesai.lens

We rented this space for my daughter's baby shower. It was everything that we had expected - it was beautiful, eclectic, easily accommodated 25+ women and had a warm and intimate feel to it. We elected to go with 'minimal' additional decorations as the space really was all that we needed re decor. The entryway as abit tight if more than one person arrived at the same time for getting off shoes and coats = but not really a problem. Would absolutely recommend this venue for any type of event as was fabulous - our daughter was so thrilled with the space and the way we were able to accent it with some baby decor that she cried when she saw it in person.
