The Studios - Introduction

Hi, I’m Tammy Deren and I know what clicks with Edmonton photographers. As the owner of Smiley Eyes PhotographyI know firsthand what it’s like to build a photographybusiness from the ground up. It takes time, patience and energy…and most of all, it takes a lot of capital. I understand that as you grow your business you may not have all the pieces in place yet – backdrops, lighting, studio space, and an amazing array of props. That’s why I created The Photographer Studio.  An Edmonton studio rental . 

Sounds Amazing, Tammy! So…What is The Photographer Studio?

It is three conveniently located, fully furnished, fully stocked studios complete with vintage to modern props and furniture; large open work spaces suitable for group shots, meetings, classes and demos; lighting and staging rooms for makeup and dressing; and waiting rooms for refreshments between shots.

I’ve got the space, you customize the experience want. It’s that simple! It’s the best place for Edmonton photographers to set up their boudoir photos, portrait photography, food photography, product shots, glamour photos and more.  Whatever kind of photo shoot you have in mind, you can do it at The Photographer Studio.

Ohhh, I’m Getting Excited Tammy! Tell Me More!

Don’t mind if I do!

Studio 1 is located on the second floor of the 15607 100a Ave building. It’s bright, airy and features a boudoir space. Studio 1 also has its very own boudoir bathroom setup that includes a chaise lounge and an antique tub. You’ll love Studio 1’s prop room where you’ll find everything you need for the perfect shot, such as newborn props, extra headboards and small items. ( 20/day fee).

A separate makeup /waiting  room awaits your photo subjects where they can have their makeup applied, relax between shots and enjoy a coffee or other refreshments . 

For Edmonton photographers that love outdoor lighting, set up your sessions on Studio 1’s rooftop patio that is adorned with  natural, vintage and modern outdoor furniture.

Studios 2 and 3 are located at 17304 – 103 Ave. The first thing you’ll notice when you walk into Studio 2’s large main room is the full sized bed with its beautiful new bedding, ( perfect for your next boudoir shoot or cozy up a family for a fun family shoot ). Chaise lounges, brick backdrops, florals and greenery, a fireplace, and from October - January, a Christmas tree – it’s every photographers’ dream studio! There’s a separate area for hair and makeup along with a great lounge for coffee and wine. 

The waiting area and makeup space are shared with Studio 3.

It’s the smallest of the three but oh so impressive; Studio 3 is brimming with vintage charm. Step into yesteryear with an old fashioned vanity, pink chaise, patterned sofas with curved wooden legs, a charming antique light fixture and wispy white window treatments. Neutral walls ensure your subjects really stand out and the intimate nature of the room really appeals to Edmonton boudoir and family /newborn photographers. We even have a posing bag and some newborn props, stocked and ready for you to use in studio 3 . 

And don’t forget! You can also book The Photographer Studio for meetings, demonstrations and classes.
