It’s been a while since we updated everyone on everything happening at our studio – FT Studio. We designed FT Studio to be a versatile professional space where our clients have plenty of creative space to work, shoot, and bring their visions to life. Over the past few years, FT Studio has undergone a lot of changes to raise the bar, and it will continue to evolve as we constantly seek new ways to enhance our studio spaces, making sure our clients have all the equipment and amenities they need to realise their photography ideas and let their imagination flow without ever hitting a creative brick wall.
New Additions To Our Studio Spaces in Canberra
One of the most useful new features we’ve introduced is a sizeable makeup area in Space 1 for those all-important touch-ups between headshots or during portrait photo shoots. The makeup table features a large illuminated mirror, two handheld mirrors, two chairs and two full-body mirrors nearby, so you can make sure you’re completely camera-ready before your shoot!
We’ve added new furniture and props to our shooting spaces. This includes a selection of chairs, tables, stools and artificial plants if you’d like to add more visual interest to your photos.
We also have new gear on hand for photographers, including both wall-mounted and movable backdrops and two bright Neewer 660 PRO RGB lights. These news lights come with versatile lighting capabilities, imperfect for experimenting with different colours and brightness levels during your shoot.
360 Virtual Tour
Want to take a tour of the studios before you book but don’t have the time? We’ve added a virtual 360 tour of our studio hire spaces to our website for just that event. The virtual tour gives you an idea of just how large Space 1 is, with 126 sqm to shoot, 6m high ceilings and a massive roller door for easy access and to let in natural light. Beyond just a photography studio, it’s a place to dance, rehearse, host workshops, or film large-scale productions for commercial use
New Meeting Room/Podcast Studio For Hire
We also have a whole new, podcast studio available for hire – Space 2. This smaller 15 sqm space is ideal for podcasts, corporate meetings and smaller recording sessions. Space 2 includes:
- Access to Common Area
- 70-inch 4K TV (Hisense Series S5 – 70S5)
- Zoom PodTrak P8 Podcast Recorder
- 2 x RØDE PodMic (additional mics available)
- OBSBOT Tiny PTZ Camera
- M-Audio BX4 D3 4.5in Multimedia Reference Monitors
- Foam padding to reduce noise levels
It should be noted that neither space limits what you can create – while Space 1 is ideal for larger shoots and Space 2 is aimed more at podcast recordings, Space 1 can also be used to record a podcast with a larger group, and Space 2 can be used for photography studio hire or even film studio hire.
We fully believe comfort leads to creativity – that’s why we’ve made hiring FT Studio as convenient as possible, with plenty of amenities and creature comforts so you can take a break and spring right back into action. These amenities include:
- Fully equipped kitchen facilities with a microwave, fridge and coffee machine
- Comfortable lounge and dining area in the shared break room situated between Space 1 and Space 2
- Large bathroom with a shower
- High-speed wifi network with 250Mbps download speed
- Nearby street parking or up to 2 spots of reserved carpark spots available for hire
