Natural Light Photo Studio Loft
February Atelier was created with a vision to develop a space where artists of all types could come together and collaborate on creative ideas. We truly believe in community over competition. Our loft is not just a photography studio, it's a space for creatives from all backgrounds, a playground for photographers, filmmakers, street artists, influencers, designers, musicians, and planners alike.
Our 900 square foot daylight studio features 13' ceilings, original hardwood floors, and large factory windows that bring in ample natural light. Situated on the second floor of the early 20th century Reliable Toy Factory building in Leslieville, our studio space is thoughtfully designed to provide a calming venue for photographers and creative entrepreneurs to host their own photoshoots, workshops, and clients meetings — tucked away from the chaos of downtown Toronto.

The studio is much bigger than it appears in the photos. Tons of natural light, lots of props and room to shoot, and solid communication before the shoot. Thanks Doug!
This space was so great. There is so much for you to work with, loads of props, and great lighting from the window.
Ash was very helpful in getting us set up for this booking.
