Courtenay Studios space for hire
Our Courtenay Place photography studio is available for hire:
We believe the studio room and its equipment fills a need for a modestly-priced photography studio hire facility in Wellington city. While the lighting equipment is not the latest computer-controlled gadgetry, it is robust, reliable, and easy to understand and use - it does the job. And you're not paying through the nose for each piece of kit you use - it's all included in the standard hire fee, and with free assistance in setting up.
Since opening, the studio has proved to work well for apparel and product shoots, modelling and acting portfolio shoots, profile photos, portraits, nudes and figure studies. The warmth and relaxed feel of the space immediately puts clients, models and photographers at ease, making for a relaxed and enjoyable photo shoot. It has also been used for video productions involving many people. The central location makes it convenient and easy for people to locate and reach by public transport.
The window area is good for natural light shooting as well, particularly for portraits.
