1. A bright production studio in Philadelphia
Studio Kho is not only an amazing photo and content studio in Philadelphia, it’s also shockingly affordable to rent by the hour. The space has impressive 20-foot ceilings and huge windows that let in tons of natural light.
As the hosts describe the space, “Studio Kho is the perfect spot for any beginners/professional photographers, content creators, and videographers to bring their clients into our large comfortable space… The space also includes a separate makeup room/changing room.” To learn more and get a better feel for what the space looks like (and how it photographs), take a look at their Instagram feed.
There are over 130 reviews adding up to a five-star rating for this space, and one photographer described his experience renting it: “This space is suited well for a photo shoot, which is how I used it. There is very good natural light and enough props available to create a mood for the shoot. Vera was very responsive, getting back to me almost immediately… She also has studio equipment and backdrops available which came in handy. I would use this space again for a shoot.”
2. A downtown retro and grunge studio in Toronto
Your creativity will flourish in this impressive Toronto studio, which has tons of historic character. It’s situated in a 110-year-old factory building with plenty of exposed brick, original hardwood floors, 14-foot ceilings, and 12-foot factory windows.
The studio offers amenities like speakers, garment steamers, a bathroom with a shower, a makeup area with a ring light, and a kitchen and sitting area. Enjoy lots of equipment included with the rental, from LED RBG light panels to reflectors to furniture and props. And even more conveniently, additional equipment can also be rented on site.
Among the numerous positive reviews of this studio is this review from a photographer, “The space was beautiful! Really unique and lots of props and extra to make the space your own. Nicola was super responsive and accommodating to our needs, even replying into the night during our late shoot hours. Thanks so much!”
3. A photo and video studio in Chicago
For many creatives, nearly as important as the interior of the studio itself is the view out the windows. The view from this Chicago-based brick-and-wood studio is absolutely stellar, with its three north-facing windows looking out at the skyline.
The hosts write of this space, “The walls are a combination of white paint & tan brick, and the space gets tons of beautiful natural light… There is a walled off corner nook, which can be used as a podcast production space, changing area or shooting space.”
Some photography gear is included, and additional equipment is available for rent from the hosts of this studio. They’re also very happy to help you out with anything you might need: “Everyone on the Lumber Studios team is a content creator themselves and is more than happy to help your production if you ask.”
