I am opening up my large photography studio on River St. in Santa Cruz. This is the largest space in the Art Center, which is part of the Historic Tannery. Sealed concrete flooring and textured walls make for excellent backing, or use the 3 large seamless paper rolls that are easily accessed at all times. There is a nice sitting area with magazines for clients, as well as a large mirror for last minute primping. The studio has high ceilings with plenty of natural light from large windows on 3 sides. If you prefer studio lights, windows have blackout curtains that can be drawn.
The studio is very private, but also steps out to a sunny community area with a restaurant, dance center, and various other art forms at work.
