December 2021
Open for small sessions (1-6 ppl); fully vaccinated guests only!!! Thx so much for the interest & inquiries.

Attention Shutterbugs!

Stunning ground floor heritage hard loft in downtown Toronto. Corner unit with South East exposure and 16 foot ceilings. Loft has exposed red and tan brick, dark hardwood floors, pharaonic windows (x4), a massive chalkboard, heaps of books, a plethora of plants, and tons of character. Space is ideal for:
* Photography/videography (lifestyle, social media, etc.)
* Small client meetings

SOUTH EAST EXPOSURE
The THREE large transom windows w stained glass are east facing, the other window, with the manzanita branch, is south facing.

PRICING (PRIVATE vs. SHARED)
Prefer smaller groups, hence the cheaper rate and one hour option for 1-2 ppl:

*PRIVATE (Host NOT in space):
$65 for 1-2 ppl for 1 HR (*NEW*)
$55 for 1-4 ppl (2 HR MINIMUM)
$65 for 5-6 ppl (2 HR MINIMUM)

*SHARED (Host to quietly stay in bedroom, not pictured, w headphones in):
$55 for 1-2 ppl for 1 HR (*NEW*)
$45 for 1-4 ppl (2 HR MINIMUM)

Larger groups cost more: wear n tear, virus exposure...

This space was AMAZING! We had SO much fun and Sheryl was SO helpful and accommodating. She has all the cleaning essentials (thank you pandemic!) that we’re needed which I think was super awesome and made us feel safe. The space was spotless and just as beautiful as the pictures! My photographer was shocked at how beautiful the lighting was she said ever picture she took was perfect! I was an incredible place for a photo shoot! HIGHLY recommend!
