Studio B


Blackout studio engineered for precision lighting control

  • Studio gallery

  • Shot at this studio

  • Floorplan

Gain complete control over your lighting setup with this blackout photo studio for rent. This studio was designed for a controlled light setup with just one window that can be completely obscured, black walls, and minimal dark furnishings.
The ability to manipulate light in this studio is unmatched. The dark walls and floor really have the potential to become a character all on their own. Let the natural darkness of the setting seep into your work or really make your subject explode with a custom lighting rig. The flat black atmosphere makes adjustments simple and precise; with no harsh reflections to deal with. You can tune your lighting setup for maximum control. Finetuning is a breeze with no competing light sources, and you can enjoy a freedom of control that other studios struggle to offer.
All our studios come with included extras, like access to makeup stations, free Wi-Fi, a mini-fridge, a range of paper backdrops, and more. . .
Use the unique advantage of this particular studio and experiment with different patterns and intensities of light with our wide range of available equipment. This studio is the perfect laboratory for telling a story.

How late can I book blackout stage till ?

FD Photo Studio Consultant

Hello Nick, if you book a week + in advance, then our usual booking hours are 8 am – 11 pm. For any early/late hour bookings (before 8am, or after 11 pm) there is an $25/hr extra charge, and the booking needs to be approved by management. For any last minute bookings please give us a call, so we could check the closing times for you on the spot!

Jacqueline M.

Hey guys, what if I want to bring a pet? Is it fine?

FD Photo Studio Consultant

Hi Jacqueline M, great question! You are more than welcome to bring your furry friends, and we have absolutely no additional charges for it. All you need to do is fill out a pet waiver that we will kindly provide before the booking. All exotic animals have to be supervised by a professional trainer.

Lynda Moss

How big is the room?

FD Photo Studio Consultant

Hi Lynda, thank you for asking. The stage is about 45ft x 20ft box with a private platform section by the window, making it basically a 2-room stage for your creative freedom!

Garnett Mariabella

What lights do you provide with this studio ( B ) ?

FD Photo Studio Consultant

Hi, Garnett! Thank you for your question. We include 3 strobe lights Paul C. Buff “Alien Bee 800” models for free with every rental. If you are interested in continuous lighting, we also offer Dimmable LED light panels (900 Bids, CRI 96+) for $35/booking. Thank you!

Myra Ulyssa

Can I use a fog machine for a dance music video in this stage? Is there an extra charge?

Thank you,
Myra

Maria

Hi Myra, thank you for asking! Yes, you can definitely bring your own fog machine on set (please make sure the fog juice is water based)! There is no charge for that. Moreover, we also gladly provide a fog machine to rent hourly at a convenient $10/hr rate, in case you do not have one 🙂 Studio B is one of our top picks for music/dance video productions, so it should be a great fit for your shoot!
