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 offers you :
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 or a day, depending on your needs.
The studio is part of our Creative Space, a large open space on the ground floor of a commercial duplex. The use of the studio is exclusive to you during your shoot, i.e. no one else shoots at the same time as you, BUT the space also includes two closed offices at the back, so it is possible that our tenants might be present and work during your shoot. If you need extreme discretion to shoot Boudoir, please advise us in writing before booking to see the possibility.
Our studio manager is also present on an irregular schedule, so it is possible that she will welcome you, as it is also possible that you will be alone upon arrival. Our Studio Guide will be sent to you before the shoot so you know where to find everything and how to properly plan your visit.
This corner offers you a double bed with light sheets and pillows with soft natural light (you can also block it completely with the blackout blind).
A brick wall is next to it and a few chairs are available to make variations of the look.
Perfect to occupy the kids when you talk to parents or to do newborn, kids or family portraits.
Many toys are available for them, along with a variety of backdrops you can stick on the wall. A beanbag for newborn, lots of blankets, baskets, plush toys and accessories.
We also have a wide plexiglass to avoid messes when doing Smash-the-cake shoots.
If you only need a minimal look and a big space to shoot, we have paper seamless for you to shoot with, along with a fake white brick wall you can use as background.
Take a break between clients, have a discussion with them or take a few more corporate shots on the sofa next to the window in the lounge area where you can also chill and relax.
