Can I come set up ahead of time?

Your time starts when you take possession of the studio. So if you want to come an hour early to set up, you’ll need to pay for that hour. If it takes you an hour to pack-up at the end of your shoot, then you will be charged an additional hour.

Is there a grace period?

We will let you in no sooner than 15 minutes before your shoot. So if you show up 30 minutes early, don’t expect to take early possession of the studio unless you plan to pay for it.
You will get a 15 minute grace period to vacate the studio at the end of your shoot, so long as there is no one booked directly after you. Anything over 15 minutes is considered an additional hour and you will be billed.

What if I break or damage something?

We understand accidents happen, but most of the time when something is broken in the studio, it’s due to neglect. 😉
If you break or damage an item you will be charged the cost of the item plus the shipping cost.
If you damage a wall or the floor, etc… you will be charged the cost of the repair.

The best thing to do is to treat the studio as if it were your own investment. Follow directions, ask for help if needed.

Why do I have to pay a cleaning fee?

The cleaning fee is rarely used, as most people know how to pick up after themselves. For those that don’t the cleaning fee is imposed.

Fee Schedule for Studio Rentals:
$25 for leaving the cyclorama floor unusable
$25 for leaving trash/food behind
$50 for feathers, body paint, sand, or anything else that is hard to clean up
