The studio is much smaller than advertised- instead of 10 x 10 x 15 it is about 9 ft wide, 8 ft ceiling, and 15 ft to the entrance door (a WASHER & DRYER are in the back corner). There is no change room or bathroom for the model to use. The sun room is nice and well-lit, my model changed there. There is storage and shelving on one wall behind a white cloth in the studio room. When using one of the wireless triggers, 1 out of 20 shots showed a black bar on the edge of the frame. I shoot @ 1/200 sec. I have experienced this issue before with my own triggers when the batteries are low... We got some good images in any case. I have shot in areas as small as a master bath, I just expected more space.
The best and affordable small studio. I would reccomend this place to my other friends who does photoshoots and filming videos. The owner of the place are nice too, very accomodating. I'll come back in the future. :)
Affordable and roomy. I enjoyed using the sunroom for filming my interview, it was extremely spacious. Only suggestion I have is to change the lighting, it'd be nice to have lights that are more translucent. Other than that, it was perfect. Thank you!
Easy and convenient. Studio space was a good deal compared to other studios, and was well equipped. My only criticism was the size of the studio space. The ceiling is quite low, and the width of the room is just big enough for a backdrop, which makes setting up the backdrop challenging. The ceiling was so low that we could get the right angle on the model because the models were so tall. But other than that, the studio space was really nice and I highly recommend
Lights were not put back upon arrival. Had to readjust and move them to the right position. The people before us obviously left didn't bother to put them back.
Other than that good. We always enjoy filming here.
The studio setting is immaculate as always. Everything you need in a one stop shop. Pro lighting and natural lighting available. Always clean and organized. Such an easy process from the start to the finish.
I was used to booking studios using various apps and found them to be expensive. This studio has everything you need to get the portrait and profile shots you need for a very cheap price. The main space also has some great light and furniture to use for your work. I really like this place and will continue to use it for shoots in this area.
The first view of Sunnyvale Photo Studio is always impressive. The appearance is always clean and organized. Everything is in place and ready to use. I enjoy the use of the natural light indoors and outdoors. The studio portion of the location is great. Alway enough space to complete my projects. I'll be back very soon. I highly recommend Sunnyvale Photo Studio for any photography projects or assuagements you may have in the future. Thank you!
The over all space and conditions are wonderful....however the fan in the room was not working witch made it a little warm for clients to be comfortable.....other than that i will definitely be returning.
Recently I had the pleasure of using this studio and experiencing what it had to offer. First of all, an affordable price for the space that you are allowed to us; garden area/ back yard, two rooms for shooting make it nice. However, I did not like the large rotating circular couch that was present and thus was not in the photos. Had I know that was there I would not have bought a temporary prop piece of my own. Needless to say, I did use it in some shots so thank you for it being there but maybe a small loveseat or boutique chair. I loved the privacy that was given because it made my model comfortable knowing she wouldn't be disturbed or bothered during wardrobe changes and shooting.Over all, good experience and I know I will be back again when I do more test shooting with other models. Thank you Dannie for the first timer special and easy to follow instructions.
I have shot in many studios in the past. However, Sunnyvale Photo Studio is simply the best. The one location has everything you need for a photo session. The studio space is enough to complete any task. The lighting is set up and ready to shoot as soon as you mount the provided triggers to your camera. The front lobby and lounge are is amazing for natural light photography and portraits. So many options are available at this location. I highly recommend Sunnyvale Photo Studio to anyone in need of a studio for their project or assignment. www.KDWphotos.com
My recent two-hour shoot at the studio went well. Since I was already familiar with the access procedure and the lighting equipment, it was easy. For simple shoots with strobes indoors, this studio is convenient and reasonably-priced. This time, the one minor point of inconvenience was that I had to search behind the curtains to find a switch to turn on the two power supplies that controlled the lighting. It may be a good idea to make the switch more easy to find, or to mention this necessary step in the e-mailed instructions.
Overall, the experience this time was as good on my previous shoots at the studio.
Would certainly use your studio again... thanks!
Very convenient location, very clean and shoot ready studio. I enjoyed the variety the space offered and all of the convenient things like speaker and strobes ready to use as soon as you walk in. I will be shooting here again.
I have shot at the Sunnyvale Photo Studio at least a couple of times now. Recently, I used this studio for a quick shoot, and it was perfect. There is facility for three- or four-point lighting. On the most recent shoot, the key light had a softbox, the fill light a beauty dish with a diffuser, and also available was a light with a snoot (for hair lighting). The studio provided a wireless transmitter trigger that was able to control all three lights. The cycling time was quite acceptable. Only once or twice during almost two hours of shooting did I have to give the key light a few extra seconds to recycle. The white seamless background got blown out nicely. At some very wide angles, you may have to compose your frame such that it stays within the seamless, but that's an issue you face with most indoor sets, at all but the largest studios.
For a quick shoot - headshots, or even more elaborate shooting - this is a great, and very reasonably-priced studio. It offers complete privacy, and also has an easy on-line booking system and simple instructions for access and use.
There's an outdoor area that could be useful as well, though I didn't need to use it this time.
Even if the owners are not present all the time at the studio (and thus you are assured of privacy), they are just a phone call or e-mail message away and very willing to help.
All in all, I rate this studio and my experience very high.
I needed to use the Sunnyvale Photo Studio for a photo-shoot for several profiles & it worked out very well. They had everything I needed & the arrangement was clean, well-organized & neat. The equipment was right where you would expect it to be.
I would definitely use the space again & highly recommend it for an amateur project.
The studio is a great, reasonably priced, place to shoot. It has an efficient formal high-key lighting set up but also a sunroom that provides some great informal images with speedlights/modifiers/reflectors. In addition, there's a private yard area that's included in the studio rental.
The owners respect your privacy and are very good at prompt communication regarding the rental and instructions on lighting setups, exposure setting, etc.
I recommend it.
We had a great time at Sunnyvale Photo Studio. They had everything i needed to get my work done in a very professional way. Time went by so fast and I can't wait to go back and explore the other side of the studio where we can get creative too. My final work came out excellent. No need for retouching since the lighting was so perfect. I will be using this studio for every paid gig in the near future.
