As a photographer, or a video producer, you probably do the majority of your work on location. Maybe you’re working at it part time, or you’re an avid amateur. You can’t justify a permanent studio, but there are times you would use a studio if you could.

HamiltonStudio.ca can be found tucked in front of railroad tracks across from historical Gage Park in Hamilton, Ontario. It’s LOADED with character, and has everything you need.
