Many photo studios are available for rental throughout Montreal … but often at prices that, although adequate for large commercial projects, can hurt those who are new to the art world.
For photographers who are starting in the photo world, emerging artists who want to create their first portfolio, artists who simply want to let their inspiration run free, fashion designers who launch their first collection, startups who need to shoot their products, or bloggers who want to film a web tutorial, Studio 402 exists for you.
For you, who have a simple personal project, an creative shoot idea, a short video to shoot… For you who want to have access to a large space instead of doing the shoot in your living room …
We understand that you often all have crazy schedules, maybe another full-time job …. That’s why the studio is now 100% autonomous and open 7 days a week, so that you can come when your schedule permits it. For a few hours, a day, or a month, depending on your needs.
The studio is NOT SOUNDPROOF and a coworking space occupies the space next door. It is therefore possible that you hear noise during the week, during office hours. In addition, the ventilation system creates a background noise that cannot be controlled. Video shooting where ambient sound is important is not recommended in this space.
The studio is available to you 7 days a week, from 7am to 10pm. You will have access to all the sets and photo equipment if necessary, you only need to bring your own camera.
A security deposit is required when booking, which will be refunded 2-3 days after the shoot.
The price is fixed, regardless of the day or the number of hours reserved ($ 30/h + taxes.)
Same conditions as hourly rental, but you will benefit from 10 hours of rental per month, which you can book yourself at any time, for $ 175 + taxes.
Hours are NOT transferable from month to month, and you must subscribe for a minimum of 3 months.
Only one security deposit will be required upon subscription, which will be refunded to you when you cancel.
You will receive an email shortly after your booking with all the instructions for the space, as well as the code for the door, if our customer service is closed when you come. It is your responsibility to contact us if you do NOT receive this email to let us know, so we can send it back (some “hotmail” addresses seem to block our emails, lately…)
Do you lack inspiration for your shoot? Or do not want to spend a ton of money on accessories that you will only use once?
Studio Le402 and The Creative Weekends, an organization whose mission is to encourage the creativity of amateur and emerging photographers and models, are now partners and offer you the opportunity to discover their fabulous wardrobe with a thousand and one treasures ….
For an additional fee, you will have access to a ton of items to enhance your shoot:
This option is NOT available at the moment because of Covid restrictions.
If you are doing newborn photo sessions, Smash-the-cake, children or family sessions, the studio offers a perfect kid’s corner for you.
To keep them occupied while you talk with parents, a safe corner with blocks, books and a multitude of toys is at your disposal. Many backgrounds (wood, white, blue, gold, etc.) are also available, which you can decorate with a multitude of banners for Smash-the-cake shoots.
Several baskets with blankets are also available for your newborn sessions, as well as mini chairs, newborn hats, storybooks, blackboard for the older ones, etc.
When the holiday season comes, many Christmas accessories are also available on request. And all of this is included with your booking, without any additional cost!
