The West Loop Rental Studio is now my home base. The Studio is located just south and west of the Loop 610 and Southwest Freeway (US 59/69) intersection which is close to my home and centrally located in Houston.
With on-location Architecture, Commercial, Drone and 360 photography as my core business, I do not need a full time studio space. I opened the Studio to meet my objectives, as well as support other creatives with a space they could call home. The studio can accommodate other photographers, workshops, and meetings.
A space for corporate headshots, branding sessions, and large group photos
I have been providing headshots and corporate staff photos on location since I started my photography business in 2011. I wanted a space that I could offer individual branding and headshot sessions, single new-hire headshots for my corporate clients, as well as a place for larger groups. Over the last 2 years, I have been focusing on my headshot technique with mentoring from the top headshot photographer, Peter Hurley. I am now one of his Headshot Crew Associates. I am very excited to complement this part of my business with a dedicated space.
A place for the creative community
I have been a member of various photography groups over the years. Finding a space to regularly accommodate meetings has always been a bit of compromise. I designed the space to include social areas as well as meeting/shooting spaces so these groups would feel at home.
A space for major productions
Knowing I would only be using the studio part time, I designed it to accommodate rental for larger productions. The space includes 3 makeup counters, 2 dressing rooms, a Lounge (green room), production offices, coffee/tea bar, 2 bathrooms, and a 2000 sq ft studio with high ceilings and garage access. There are also monthly plans for other photographers to use the space as their own.
A place to print your work
Printing is a very important part of the creative process. There are few local printers, and owning your own fine art printer is expensive and a bit of a labor of love. I am making my printers available to other photographers that need to print their work, and maintain control of the process from start to finish.
A place for my ever growing collection of gear
This may seem a little silly, but getting my gear out of our bedroom, garage, and home office has been quite rejuvenating.
So if you need a place for a meeting or are looking for a headshot photographer, remember the West Loop Rental Studio, and give me a call to get you scheduled.
