Rent our photo studio

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 your 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 Le402 exists for you.

The studio offers you :

  • 1500 sf. of space with 8’6″ ceilings
  • natural light
  • variety of sets and furniture to use (boudoir, kids, corpo, etc.)
  • studio equipment available on demand (2 flash et softbox + universal flash trigger)
  • complete private bathroom
  • access to the kitchen (free coffee!)
  • large conference room used as a makeup room with steamer & clothes rack

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 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 area 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.

Our studio manager is present on an irregular schedule, so she might be able to welcome you, but if not, the studio is 100% autonomous, you’ll have a unique code for the door, and 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.

The Boudoir Space

Perfect for your sexy & Boudoir shoots, 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).  You can also use our black V-Flats to install behind the bed to get a darker look.

A brick wall is next to it and a few chairs , blankets and pillows are available to make variations of the look.

The Kids Space

Very useful if you need 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, 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.

The Shooting area

If you only need a minimalist look, a big space to shoot and not much accessories, there is a big open space with seamless paper backdrops for you to shoot with, along with a fake white brick wall you can use as background.

The Dark Glamour Space

If you want a darker look, we have a black and chic wall for you, away from the light for your darker, moody Glamour shoots.  You can complete the looks with some fancy chairs or vintage furniture.

The Lounge Space

Take a break between clients, have a discussion with them or take a few corporate or more casual shots on the sofa next to the window in the lounge area where you can also chill and relax.
