★ STUDIO APPEARANCE
Sometimes we add things, or take things away and just haven't updated the photographs with the new additions, so if there's something in particular you need from the pictures, please ask if we have it to confirm before you book.
We are a Toronto photography studio which primarily specializes in renting space to photographers, videographers, producers, makeup artists for makeup workshops, and other artists, but we do frequently host private party rentals, upscale events for corporate clients as well as private events for birthdays, reunions, or family gatherings. If your intended usage of the space is unlisted, please feel welcome to contact us to see if we can host you! Please note, we have video surveillance in place to prevent loss, damage, and otherwise destructive behaviour. Your privacy is important to us and therefore we do not share any of the footage captured on the premises, but if this makes you uncomfortable or you require us to sign a non-disclosure we are more than happy to do so!

Unless otherwise stated, the following are prohibited in our entire studio space (and most likely also in the common areas outside of our unit as well). Kindly read this list carefully, to avoid incurring various clean up or restoration fees.
If you have ANY questions or concerns about whether something is OK or not, kindly call Management to verify. If Management cannot answer your call, it’s best to assume that the answer is “no" until Management states otherwise. Falsely assuming the answer is yes, may lead you to incurring unwanted fees.

-Kindly wear only clean, indoor shoes inside of the studio. No shoes allowed in Blanca Room.
-Please move all furniture and items back to the way in which they are arranged in the photos on our website. Place the couch, ottoman, all stools, tables, plants back where they belong.

We do NOT charge a cleaning fee because we expect YOU to leave the space spotless and in rentable condition for the next guest. Failure to leave the studio in as clean or cleaner condition than in which it was left for you will result in a $250 cleaning fee, and with a punitive charge if it was deemed that you treated the space with negligence and a spirit of disrespect.
Great communication with the host. Amazing space for both photo or video shoots and even small events. I'd definitely recommend this space to a friend. :)
Everything went well as planned. Would definitely recommend to new renters !
Thanks Rajhaun! We appreciate you!
Daniel was a life saver for me! After struggling to find a place to hold a children's birthday party last minute and many other hosts being hesitant, he took a leap of faith with me despite knowing it could be risky. Daniel is very professional, reliable and flexible. Allowed be to stay extra hours and was quick with responding to my messages. This studio was large enough to hold a bouncy castle and all my guests comfortably. He also offered great advice on how to find the best host on open space. Everyone had a great time and for that I want to say thank you very much! Recommending this studio to everyone I know!!!
Thank you Najma! I was very happy to accommodate your last minute request!
Perfect spot for a filmed interview.
Thanks Marc-Andre I appreciate you and glad you were able to film your interview without any issues!
Great location and Daniel is very communicative!
Daniel was nothing short of amazing. His studio firstly is beautiful! The looks we were able to capture in it were insane. So much versatility and variety for you to work with. Secondly, Daniel's communication is impeccable. He leaves clear and concise instruction all around the studio, however, he was quick to clarify any questions we had. We will forever have our support and business!
Bless your sweet soul, thank you!
AMAZING space. We got so many looks out of it! Daniel was a pleasure. Would definitely recco!
Hands down, this was one of the best experiences that I’ve had with a venue booking. Daniel is incredibly responsive, and exceptionally thoughtful—and not just thoughtful as a person, but as a venue host. I say this because he has thought of everything that a customer might need to make their experience seamless. The process to access the studio was straightforward, everything is labelled, instructions are easily accessible, and he has produced videos so you can “see” how to navigate the space as opposed to having to read a lot of information. Gold star, and beautiful space!
I literally have no words 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏 thank YOU!!!
Daniel's space was amazing to work out of! He was extremely professional, communicative and accommodating, will definitely be booking again in the near future!
Thanks Hayley 🙏 it was a real joy hosting you.
Great space. Daniel was accommodating and easy to communicate with.
Thank you kindly Phillip the pleasure was all mine.
