About Our Video and Photo Studios
We are local photographers, photojournalists, videographers and artists. We know how hard it is trying to make it here, and how competitive the industry can be. Our goal at Starr Street Studios is to provide affordable, friendly, and professional studio space rental for small to medium scale photo and video shoots. We use the space ourselves, and we are more than happy to share it.
Most of the clients our studios are regulars. They like having a comfortable and clean environment for their shoots and unlike the industry heavyweights, they can’t afford to shell out a million clams to do it.
Our main studio–and most affordable option–is approximately 1000 square feet with 13 foot ceilings. It’s dimensions are 38′ x 26′. It has air conditioning and heating, a full bathroom with shower, clothing rack, steamer, a full sized refrigerator, water cooler with on demand hot water for tea and coffee, microwave and toaster oven. It has three couches, wi-fi, music player for any device, and 3 large south facing windows for natural light shooting, which can also easily be blacked out.
This auxiliary studio is attached to Studio A with a door that can be opened between the two spaces for internal access creating a 2000 sq ft studio. There are also separate entrances for separate rentals. This space has a classic Brooklyn loft look with large 2 south and 4 west facing windows for incredible natural light with stellar views of Manhattan. It also has its own 4×6 balcony. It is approximately 30′ x 35′ (1050 sq ft) with 12′ ceilings. There is a full kitchen and an impressive 12′ granite kitchen island for food photography or cooking shows and/or catering.

A professional photo and video studio that is both affordable for a range of budgets, and yet has all the equipment and amenities of a world class facility.

There is a lofted client lounge, perfect for relaxing, viewing the shoot from above, a video village or production office. The facility has a powerful HVAC system for year round comfort.
Starr Street Studios is located in Brooklyn, NYC and housed in old sewing factory with new renovations in one of Brooklyn’s hottest centers of creativity, Bushwick. We share the building with the neighborhood’s oldest theater, the Bushwick Starr.
