Our Favorite Photo Studio in RVA...

Blog by Jada Parrish | Article | 02/26/24


What makes a good photo studio rental? When I’m renting a photo studio by the hour, I’m really looking for one thing: a blank canvas. I'm on the lookout for a space that offers all the essential amenities a studio should have, from gear to posing equipment and backdrops. But what matters most is having plenty of room to shoot and a studio that's simple enough for me to transform into whatever type of shoot I have planned for the day.

That's why I'm a huge fan of The Lab in RVA. We book The Lab through Peerspace, an online platform that makes it easy to reserve photo studios by the hour. Conveniently located in Churchill, this ground level studio is incredibly accessible. With keyless entry, there's no need to wait around for someone to let you in, streamlining the entire process. James, the host, is exceptionally kind, and the space is consistently clean and organized. The Lab also has a variety of seamless paper backdrops you can use in your shoots free of charge.

The Lab is convenient and has everything we need to create. That’s why it’s our go-to studio to shoot at in RVA.

If you haven't tried Peerspace yet, I highly recommend it. You can rent unique photo studios in cities around the world by the hour. Use our code to get $50 off your first rental.
