Photo Studio

We also have a variety of photography equipment available for usage as well as a large shooting studio with a white backdrop. Renters that have experience with photography equipment will need to take a check out test for access to equipment - this test is an addition $20.00. Renters that just need access to the studio - NOT our photography equipment do not need to take a check-out test. Renters that don't have experience with photography equipment should take our 3 hour Photography Basics workshop!
