Our Beginning

Back in 2013 Mark Heaps was teaching photography and digital imaging workshops in Austin. As he saw the scale of the photographer community in Austin he began to wonder why he saw very few of them using a studio? It all came down to the same reasons. Cost, confusion, and complexity. Creators felt like it was too hard, and too expensive. In 2015 he began his mission to provide the community an affordable studio space with all equipment, backdrops, props, and more. After nearly 3 years, in 2018 he moved the studio into a new space that is light and open. 

In that time, we've watched hundreds of creatives grow in their craft. Whether they are students in a local high school, or enthusiasts looking to develop into artists or business owners.

We are proud to serve them all.
