How does it all work exactly? Members pay an annual membership fee of $29 to gain access to all of the amazing benefits of studio membership. This fee covers the vetting and member management process which allows us to confirm all members are legitimate and insured photography businesses. As all members are vetted in advance, they can simply book/pay for the hours/days needed at the members only price. Members can also purchase packages for even greater savings! Lastly, members get exclusive perks such as last minute scheduling, independent studio time and remote door access through the studio app!
I’m already a member, do I really save if I purchase a package?
Yes, please reference package pricing if you want to see the math breakdown. Member dollars saved are examples based on the scenario where the same amount of time was booked by a non-member at non-member weekday rates. Savings are actually greater compared to weekend rates as packages don’t differentiate between weekday and weekend Rentals. Member rates are locked in for the specified rental term. Non-member prices however are subject to change at any time.
I’m a member with a weekend warrior package, but the date I need is already booked?
Weekend warrior package is just a catchy name for the smallest package and in no way implies or guarantees that time slots will be available on the weekends. Time slots are booked on a first come first serve basis on a calendar shared by all renters, both members and non-members alike. If you require a specific date please book in advance accordingly. If you need to book something last minute please call us directly to check studio availability.
What if I need more time?
If your Rental period will extend beyond the hours of your reserved Rental period, this has to be approved and must fall within business hours of Mon-Sun from 8AM to 8PM. Additional hours can be added at a members only rate of $35 per hour on weekdays and $45 per hour on weekends, pending availability.
What if I don’t want a membership, but I still want to rent?
Then I would seriously question your math skills. Just kidding. Becoming a member ensures that all renters are legitimate professional business people with the proper licensing and insurance requirements, which protects not only myself but other studio renters and our customers. I am more than happy to charge you way more money if you prefer to decline membership;)
$60 per hour weekdays (2 hour minimum)
$75 per hour weekends (2 hour minimum)
$250 per half day or $350 per full weekday
$350 per half day or $500 per full weekend day
Any others details I should know about?
You are only allowed to use the space during your reserved Rental period. Please allow enough time for setup/clean up within your Rental period. In order to confirm and hold a reservation, 50% of the total Rental rate is required as a non-refundable retainer. The remaining 50% of the Rental fee plus any applicable refundable cleaning/damage deposits are due prior to the beginning of the Rental period.
Cancellations of confirmed bookings will result in the following charges:
5 days or more prior to Rental date all payments are eligible for refund less the 50% non-refundable retainer. Less than 5 days to Rental date, no refunds will be issued. Renters can always request to reschedule for another date if available.
Company reserves the right to refuse ANY renter at its sole discretion.
