Studio Rental

The Photokitchen Studio is a well designed space built for food media productions, such as food photoshoots, tastings, cooking shows, food video shoots and food related events or workshops. We require full disclosure of the project’s details upon inquiry as we are also a food production team, first and foremost, and we may not be able to entertain projects that will conflict with our team’s work and schedule.

The studio and kitchen area combined is 120 sqm in size and is inclusive of a 80 sqm studio space and a 40 sqm kitchen. Our kitchen is built with a 4 burner induction stove, oven, microwave, toaster, sink and industrial exhaust layouted in such a way that is optimal for the camera.

Connected to our kitchen area is an additional rentable enclosed work space of 35 sqm, for clients who need an extra space to host workshops or small functions.

Rates

Our rates are priced towards the higher end of the spectrum, but we can assure you that our facilities are no less than professional. We can customize discounted packages for those who are looking into longer rental durations or build pre-paid subscriptions for more regular renters. Talk to us!

Payment

Schedules

Our own production company uses the studio on a regular basis so it’s important to us that the facilities are properly cared for by people we can trust. We are very particular about the people we welcome into our second home. Should you need to familiarize yourself with the features of our studio an ocular date can be set anytime before the shoot within working hours and based on studio availability.
