Photo Studio NYC Daylight Long Island City.jpg

The Space

Our 700 square foot daylight studio – shared with our design office, which is beyond a wall partition – features 13’ ceilings, original hardwood floors and three 8’ tall windows that bring in ample natural light. Situated on the second floor of an early 20th century silk production factory that once supplied textiles to the White House, Hearst Castle, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, our studio space is thoughtfully designed to provide a calming venue for photographers and creative entrepreneurs to host their own photoshoots, workshops, and client meetings – tucked away from the chaos of New York City.
