The Center has two studios which are available for rent to Center members ONLY. Both offer excellent opportunities for available light portraiture, or you may bring your own lighting equipment. Both rooms are on the second floor, and there is no elevator in the building. We currently do not rent lighting equipment. Any lighting equipment that you may see at the Center is personal property and may not be used. Because we are in an old building and the electrical service is somewhat limited, please talk to us first if you use large power packs or high wattage hot lights. Please note that we only rent the studios to Center members. Studio rentals are subject to availability.

The rental agreement contains an indemnification clause that requires that the renter hold the Center harmless for any injury or loss. Please make sure you understand this. We strongly recommend that you obtain an insurance policy that protects you against mishaps during all of your photographic endeavors.
Non-professionals should discuss the possibility of adding a “rider” to their homeowners policy with their insurance representative. In many cases, this coverage is quite extensive while being reasonably inexpensive and it may even cover loss or damage to your equipment. The Center reserves the right to require proof of insurance.
