Photography Studio Space
Our space is a genuine photo-studio gem that is available for hourly and daily rentals. With 1500 square feet of highly functional commercial studio space, our studio embodies the character and history of the heritage warehouse building where it is located.

Please be aware that the white cove (the white background) in the studio is extremely fragile.

If you haven’t asked for the cove to be painted, the paper we have put down on the floor cannot, at any time, be removed by you. Any damage done to the cove will be taken out of the security deposit.
Multiple day rentals are for 10 hour days. The day rate is for a 10 hour day however for multiple day rentals you can use the time as you wish. For example we’ve had some renters doing a 14 hour day on one day and then two 8 hour days for a total of 30 hours for the 3 days. If you find your team needs extra time than the 30 hours then please let us know and the hourly rate would be our usual $58/hour (+GST). The only caveat is the day of departure which is outlined below.
Check out time needs to be within our usual working hours which is until 7pm. If your departure time is between 7pm to 11pm you will be charged $116 (+GST) per hour. After 11pm the overtime fee increases to $116 (+GST) for each 15 minutes.
One of the best spaces we've rented. Communication was excellent, Holly was flexible and we were given a full walkthrough when we arrived.
The space was amazing. It was large, well-lit and clean. Roger (?) was a great host who made sure that we were settled and then sent us off after we were done. You could tell that they really took pride in their space. I would definitely recommend renting here if you're looking for a studio
The studio space was perfect! The owners were so good with communication and they were very helpful as well. This space is perfect for photoshoots and video content. I am definitely coming back!
Amazing space. Clean and organized. The extra photography equipment came in very handy!
Thanks, Marco! We're glad you could make use of the extra gear we have for use.
Holly and crew were very punctual, accommodating, friendly and fast. Beautiful space, beautifully maintained.
Holly was an excellent host, very quick responder and helpful when we had to move the shoot date. The space was perfect as well and I would recommend the studio for any photo shoot. Thank you again for accommodating myself and my team!
Great space for shooting furniture on the huge backdrop. Holly and the whole team were very responsive and accommodating. I will be booking again!!
Holly and Steff are as always very accommodating and quick to answer any of our questions prior and during the booking. The Studio has a great working layout that allows us to do the shoot efficiently.
Thanks very much, Hope! It is always a pleasure working with you! We hope to see you again soon.
Great space, exactly as advertised.
Thanks Uros! We'd enjoyed having you back again!
