For many commercial products, the high-price of renting a quality studio is little more than a line item on a massive budget. For personal projects, though, raising that kind of cash can be a difficult task. VSCO, a company best-known for its film emulation presets and an excellent mobile photo editing app, is opening up its New York City workspace for free to photographers who apply to use it.
Judging by the photos, the space looks extremely awesome, with natural light, a built-in cyclo, lots of neutral white surfaces, and even some nice amenities. Sessions are limited to two hours and six people at a time. Since the studio is actually in VSCO’s NYC offices, the size of the projects is a bit limited.
If you’re a photographer who wants to use the space, you can use this online form to request access.
