Rent one of our studios

Many photo studios are available for rent all over Montreal … but often at prices which, while adequate for large commercial projects, can hurt those new to the artistic world.

Whether you are a photographer who is starting in the artistic world, the next generation of artist who wants to build a first portfolio, artists who simply want to create, fashion designers who are launching their first collection, startups having to shoot products, or bloggers wishing to film a web capsule,  Studio 402 exists for you.

The studio is now separated into two spaces: a space with natural light (Studio A) and a space filled with sets, and photo equipment (Studio B).

For you, who have a simple personal project, an idea for a creative shoot, a small 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 have crazy hours, maybe another full time job …. that’s why the studio is now 100% self-sufficient and is open 7 days a week, so you can come when your schedule allows it. For a few hours, a day, or a month, depending on your needs.


Studio A is a shared studio work space, with lots of natural light. There are two closed offices at the back and a small reception (not used during shoots), a lounge area to meet and chat with your clients, a small kitchen, a large conference table that can be used for preparation and make-up, and a large space near the windows for your shooting.
