April 2018

By far the best studio space I have ever booked/been to! The room's work flow & size was perfect for everything that needed to be done. Also the backdrop colour-variety alone should be the reason anyone books this space. Tavis & Sherlyn are wonderful people with a great studio space! I will for sure be booking again :)


April 2018

Sherlyn was a great host, easy to communicate with from the bookings to answering any questions at the studio. Great help with setting up the amazing selection of colour seamless paper and also helped with the set up of the studio lighting. The studio is clean, open and it was great to shoot there. I will definitely be back and have already recommended the studio to friends!

Sherlyn's Response:

Thanks for the kind words and for spreading the word Kassandra! Always happy to help:D I look forward to having you back again! Warm regards, - Sher


April 2018

Sherlyn was gracious, friendly and very helpful. This place is absolutely fantastic and the equipment was exactly what we needed. I arrived with a large group that needed to work on-site so it was a blessing to have access to the kitchenette, wifi, and work tables. I can't stress how resourceful Sherlyn was. She answered any questions we had and made great recommendations that helped create amazing photos. Sherlyn really knows her stuff!!!

Sherlyn's Response:

Thanks so much for the wonderful review Eitan :D It was great hosting you and your team at our studio and we hope to see you back again! All the best, Sher & Tave


April 2018

I can't say enough good things about my experience here! The space met all of our expectations and then some. Super clean and open, lots of equipment options available, and Tavis was always on hand to help with any gear problem solving. We will be booking here again!


April 2018

Sheryln and Tavis run an incredible studio space! It's clean and tidy, well organized, spacious, the equipment was in perfect condition and they were both friendly and easy to communicate with. I love that they have so many options for seamless backdrops. We used one for the first half of the day and switched for the second and it was an easy transition with the help of Tavis. I can't wait to use this space again and would highly recommend it to other photographers!

Sherlyn's Response:

It was wonderful having you, Zack and your team at the studio :) Thanks so much for the kind words and we hope to see you back again soon! Tavis & Sher
