Our newly renovated studio is a clean, bright, open space located in Downtown Toronto's studio district. We are available for photoshoots, video projects and workshops. Unlike most studios, we include 2 professional photo lights + high quality modifiers with each booking. A professional studio space featuring 14' high ceilings, access to a large freight elevator (6000 lbs weight limit) and large 9' x 15' north facing windows. With beautiful northern exposure filling the space, we are the perfect location for natural light photography.
