Photography Studio Space
COVID-19 Safety Plan
We ask that everyone follows these measures (as per the BC Centre for Disease Control & WorkSafeBC):
Vigorous screening must be done by the renter with everyone entering the studio. The following cannot enter studio:
- Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 in the last 10 days including fever, chills, new or worsening cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, and new muscle aches or headache
- Anyone directed by Public Health to self-isolate
- Anyone who has arrived from outside of Canada or who has had contact with a confirmed COVID-19 must self-isolate for 14 days
At the studio please:
- Wash your hands upon your arrival
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
- Cover your cough or sneeze
- Keep a 6 foot distance between everyone at all times and wear a mask. Mask wearing is mandatory at all times except for photography subjects having their makeup done and their photo taken
A complete contact list of all individuals present on set, the times they were present, and their roles, must be maintained by the renter to facilitate contact tracing in the event of a positive case. This contact sheet should include names, phone numbers, and addresses and be kept for 30 days after the shoot date.
The studio has enough space to ensure a 6-foot distance between people. We also have a 42-inch screen with a 12-foot HDMI cable to plug into your laptop. This way your client and team can view the photos while maintaining their distance from the photographer.
To improve ventilation please keep the overhead fans running at all times. To turn on the ceiling fan that is closest to the kitchen, turn on the light switch for the office/wardrobe room. Open windows and the front door as much as possible to promote air circulation.
The bathroom must be thoroughly cleaned after every use with any surface touched (taps, handles, soap dispenser, light switch etc) wiped down with a disinfectant wipe. We have disinfectant wipes available for people to use in the bathroom.
We ask that the kitchen not be used during a shoot. If you need the kitchen a single designated person should be the only person using it. Please let us know if you do use the kitchen so that it can be cleaned thoroughly. It is recommended that all food and drink should not be shared in any way. Consider having all individuals bring their own food and drink to reduce the risk of contamination.
If you or someone on your team becomes unwell while you are at the studio, we ask that you immediately put on a mask, sanitize your hands, isolate and call 811 or access https://bc.thrive.health/covid19/en for further guidance. If you are severely ill, call 911. You will find a disposable mask in the bathroom cabinet. Please also let your studio contact know right away so they can come and close the studio for you.
As part of our precautions we now have a mandatory cleaning COVID-19 fee of $100 to allow for increased cleaning of high touch surfaces in the studio. We ask that the studio be returned to the way that you found it, otherwise subject to our usual cleaning fee of an additional $150.
As photographers ourselves, we know first hand how hard it can be to rent a studio space at a reasonable rate in Vancouver. So we want to share our studio with other Vancouver creatives with hourly and daily rentals for photoshoots and workshops.

- 16 ft Cove (painting of cove $150 fee)
- Ceiling height of 14.5 feet between the rafters and 11.5 feet to the rafters

- One 5 ft clothing rack on wheels

- Wardrobe room
- Firenze Studio Stand + Manfrotto 405 Pro Geared head

Day rate is listed as a 10 hour day to allow time for setup and take down.
