NEED A SPACE FOR YOUR CREATIVE PROJECTS?

Rent one of our two studios

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.
