Great space to shoot at, just as described. Had a few questions on the day of the shoot and Matt was super quick to answer them and we were able to have a full day of shooting without any issues! Will definitely look to book here again for the next shoot!

This studio is great! Matt offers lots of space, a unique/ modern look, various seating arrangements/props with tons of space and lots of mirrors. He provides space/ mini kitchen to ensure renters never really have to leave the space while in use. There are large windows and skylights which provide wonderful natural light. He was very easy to communicate with and very understanding about the booking process, we are definitely looking forward to using this location again! Although there is only one physical parking on site, the street has free parking which was an added bonus ! Matt was clear and attentive to my groups needs for the use of the studio and remained available, on the day of, to assist and answer questions which provided added comfort. It is clear he took time to create the look and the feel of the room which helps the content created to be more authentic.
