How does it work for Photo Members?

You subscribe to a monthly package of hours with a Paypal recurring payment, the bigger the package the cheaper it gets right down to $35 per hour.  You let yourself in using a unique PIN on the door’s keypad, and then the studio is all yours!  No fees, charges or add-on costs.  If you go over your package hours just keep shooting and you will be charged at the end of the month for the extra hours at the rate associated with your package.  We'll send you an invoice via Paypal.

Once a member you will be able to add and change bookings on your own, but please read the cancellation conditions.  To join email us!
