Large Bright West End Studio Space
Creative collaborative space in a heritage manufacturing building. Large windows, concrete floors, and open concept make this a perfect space to meet, play, and create.
Tonnes of natural light with the option of black out blinds.
Ideal for photography, the space includes a selection of lighting equipment and props. Perfect for portraits, groups, and product/branding photography. Includes:
- 2 large and 2 small lightstands
- White v-flat
- Small and large reflectors
- 2 plinths (one white, one pink)
- garment rack and small steamer
- Backdrop stands
- Selection of seamless backdrops (colours pictured in the photo are always up to date!)
The large wooden table can be extended to accommodate 12-16 people, great for production meetings and table reads.
The space also features a movable wall, allowing you to create a fully open concept space, or divide the room. The wall is a great feature to control the light and shadows of your project.
Features an in-studio washroom (and giant vintage bathtub), kitchenette, kettle and coffeemaker for all the creature comforts (coffee and tea provided!) The building also has parking to make for easy loading and unloading.
The exterior and interior stairwells of the building also make for great backdrops for photo and video. The entire building houses artists and creatives - the perfect hub!
Full day bookings are for 8 hours; for bookings of more than 8 hours you will be charged hourly.
ACCESSIBILITY: This old factory building sadly does not have a functioning elevator and there are stairs

No smoking inside
The photos on the site do not do the space justice. Lots of natural light and props to use. Lindsay was easy to communicate with and replied quickly to requests. I cannot wait to rent this space again.
Great space, lots of indirect light streaming through the big windows. Bathroom inside the studio for easy access.
I used this space for a photoshoot and it was exactly what I was looking for. The aesthetic is beautiful. The check-in was organized and simple. The place is very convenient and clean. Everything was great! Thanks so much, Lindsay!
Beautiful bright space. Would definitely use again :)
Lindsay was absolutely amazing! The space was beautiful, incredibly versatile and perfect for what we needed to do. There's a Sobeys nearby in case parking is a concern, and it is up on the fourth floor with no elevator. But 100% would book again!
Lindsay's space is beautiful and perfect for portraits. She has a great collection of furniture pieces (including a gold suede armchair that photographs like a dream!) and a great selection of seamless paper options. 100% would rent again!
Perfect for what I needed, and you can't beat the price for what you get. The natural light is gorgeous, and Lindsay has V-flats for use when you shoot all natural light. The space is on the 4th floor, so just be aware when bringing up lots of stuff! Lindsay was a great host and was so easy to communicate with. I'll be back soon!
Lindsay’s space was beyond my expectations, arrived during golden hours and the natural light was gorgeous. Would definitely come back again to shoot here!!
Great Space. Great Location. Great host. I will definitely rent this space again.
