Use of Strobe Lights

Newspace offers a variety of studio lighting courses and one-on-one training. This is REQUIRED if you have no prior knowledge of strobe lighting and are planning to use our strobe lights. Not required for the usage of our hot lights.

Film & Video Shoots

We are able to rent our studio for film & video shoots, however, our studio is meant specifically for still photo and is not officially equipped for video shoots. We have a lot of ambient/daily activity noise throughout the space which we are unable to control for sound sensitive projects. Visual or audio integrity is not guaranteed.
