All White Bright Open Space

56 Reviews


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.

I have nothing but great things to say about this space and the hosts. Sheryl was quick and detailed with her responses to all my inquiries. Her partner Tavis was there to welcome us the day of the shoot. He was super welcoming and helpful. Overall experience was great and unfortunately I cannot say the same with a lot of my past experiences with This Open Space rentals. Hope you folks stick around!

I was in a bit of a bind and needed a studio space last minute. I was lucky to find something as great as Sheryln's and Tave's space! Tave was very welcoming and gave us a tour. He was a great help with assisting us with the lights and background too. I had a great experience overall and would love to have the pleasure of shooting there again!


November 2019

Second time here! Love it!! Sherlyn and Tave are very helpful and accommodating.
