Since our founding in 2020, our biggest goal is to help Chicago artists and anyone visiting our beautiful city – create the art they want with no restrictions. Far too many people go to LA or New York to have access to high-end studios or to create high-end film productions – Chicago is becoming the WORLD's creative hub and we are grateful to be a part of that story.

We are available for hourly photography and video rentals. Since our start, we have grown to over 6 different studios, and our own film production company Upscale Films.

We pride ourselves in our industry knowledge, hands-on service, and of course our continued creativity in bringing new and unique spaces to our city. Thank you for supporting our vision as we continue on this journey of serving the Chicago Artist community!
