FAQ

General Studio

A.Editorial/Creative pricing is intended for the use of photographs in a publication, such as a newspaper, magazine, or blog. The photos  are not directly intended for commercial gain. The pricing for editorial rental is typically lower than commercial pricing because the photographs will not be used in advertising or other forms of commercial promotion. The shoot also also self funded and paid for by a brand or company.

Commercial pricing, on the other hand, is intended for photographs that will be used in advertising, marketing or other types of commercial promotion. These photos are often used to promote products or services, and can be used in various forms of media such as print, digital or television commercials. The pricing for commercial rental is typically higher than editorial rental because of the increased potential for revenue generated by the photographs and  production cost is  paid by a company or brand.

A: No, the studio is not  soundproof. The building is an old industrial building which may have some creeks and cracks that can be heard throughout the space at times. Additionally, there are other tenants above and below the studio which may create heavy foot traffic. To minimize this, we recommend booking video projects where sound capture is important on weekends when the building is less occupied, which decreases the noise level by about 80%. Additionally, there is a transformer inside the studio that gives off a faint hum sound, which can be easily edited out in post-production. We are working to eliminate this noise completely and in the meantime, we offer complimentary acoustic blankets to help minimize ambient sound and noise.
