San Francisco photo studio rental recommendations?
Robert Hanashiro, Photographer

->> I am looking for recommendations for a photo studio to do some portrait work next month in San Francisco.

It does not have to be a exceptionally large space; something simple would be fine.

Shooting full length portraits with a lot of lights on white seamless.

If you have any recommendations, love to hear them!

I've heard great things of Left Space in SF, though I haven't shot there. The last time I had a portrait shoot up there, we rented a room in a hotel and shot there.

Otherwise give Bear Imaging a call in Palo Alto tomorrow or Pro Camera in SF, they should be able to give you the good word on where to rent some space at a good price.

Like Andrew said, definitely call Bear Images in Palo Alto: 650-321-2327

They've helped me out plenty of times over the years, and should be able to point you in the right direction.

->> Hey Bert,

Sintak Studio in the Mission district is a pretty sweet spot... Very laid back atmosphere. Marty and Angela are great too! There's also a Calumet for additional equipment rental and JCX expendable for grip/seamless stuff nearby.

Blue Sky Studio and Rayko are pretty popular too.

I've been to Rayko and they have a space that sounds like exactly what you are looking for. Check it out.
