  • A 16′ cyclorama (infinity) wall. No more dealing with seamless backdrops.  Easy setup at last!

  • One dozen powerful strobes so you can achieve the look you need.  No other San Diego studio has more available strobes and modifiers included in the rental rate.
  • A wireless strobe triggeringsystem (Pocket Wizard®) makes shooting easy
  • Online booking system to make reserving studio time simple and easy
  • An Elinchrom product table and Arkay 9′ camera/studio stand
  • Parking right out front — and no stairs! Easy to unload and load right by the door.
  • A private dressing room
  • A 46″ LCD TV for tethering or review
  • A fun and comfortable shooting environment to keep your team relaxed
  • Professional sound system and mood lighting that is invisible to the camera
  • Cold beverages available to quench your thirst
  • And most importantly: a very clean restroom (we take pride in that)


Privacy: When you rent the studio it’s your studio.  Someone will be available at reception should you need any assistance, but we will stay out of your way unless asked.  And we certainly won’t offer unsolicited critiques of your photography.
