5 Affordable Production Spaces in Los Angeles

There are many advantages to shooting in studio spaces for creative productions—the unique interiors, the gorgeous lighting, and the ease of a controlled environment that allows for a beautiful and efficient photo/film shoot. Today, I’ve put together a list of five gorgeous (and affordable) production spaces to help you get started on your next shoot in Los Angeles:

Modern Bohemian Loft - Marina Del Rey

Mad Sounds Issue 27 - Meredith Foster / Photography by Andre Nguyen

Featured in the latest issue of Mad Sounds, this bohemian loft was the backdrop of our dreamy cover shoot with Meredith Foster, and came equipped with a decorated living area, bedroom, and kitchen. (And yes, it looked like it was straight out of an Anthropology catalogue). Located in the heart of Marina del Rey, this loft has great natural lighting in every room, and is the perfect setting for a casual photo shoot, film production or production. Rent the space here.

Sunny Corner Studio - Central Hollywood

This sunny corner spot is a bright indoor studio accented with bold yellow couches and gorgeous natural lighting from the windows. Based in Central Hollywood, this studio is a small yet modern space for clean editorial shoots, glam, or any production needs. At $35 an hour, this space has a variety of outlets, c stands, and modifiers to help your shoot go smoothly. Check out the full listing here.

Large Industrial Loft - Downtown Los Angeles

Los Angeles is filled with a ton of incredible loft spaces, but this industrial loft in DTLA is one of the best studios for an effortless, downtown studio shoot at an extremely affordable price. At $50 per hour, the loft comes with an assortment of (movable) furniture, plants and greenery, a portable seamless, lighting + flash equipment, and high ceiling windows for amazing lighting at all hours of the day. My team used this space for our shoot with Megan Batoon and were able to shoot three different looks in the loft alone. Check out the full listing here.

Skyline Studio Space - Downtown Los Angeles

This listing also features a picturesque rooftop space with a view of Downtown Los Angeles’ gorgeous city skyline. Take a look at this rental here.
