The studio is a professional space, and professional conduct is to be expected. The comfort and safety of all guests are top priorities, so we ask that you please disclose all details of your rental so we are prepared for whatever situation may arise. Illegal substances, explosives, loaded firearms and incendiary devices are strictly prohibited. Renters are fully responsible for their guests' actions and will be held accountable in the event of an incident.
• Online booking is strictly for reserving photoshoots or video productions.
• Sharing rental periods with other parties is prohibited without prior notice.
At least one Studio Apparatus representative will regularly be on-site, but you will generally be left uninterrupted during your reservation, and any privacy needed for more intimate sessions will be respected. In the unfortunate event that we feel our policies are violated, we reserve the right to expel your party and cancel your reservation.
The studio is well-equipped for all your production needs.
We are, however, often bustling with activity, changes and updates are common, and therefore, we cannot guarantee that all advertised amenities will always be available. If there's anything particular you require for your reservation, please let us know in advance so that we can ensure its availability. Please check our Instagram for our most recent updates on what we have available.
