We usually have 4 or 5 photographers who each get about 10-15 minutes to shoot with the models.

Studio space Opportunity:

From Sara Pelizer of Flamenco Ottawa…

There is a space available at the Studio where my group rents (161 York Street), the Studio is available 3 days of the week (morning, afternoon and night), the price per month is $400.00. The lease is for 1 year. Subletting of your hours is possible.

If you are not currently spending this amount per month when you need Studio space I suggest the “union of forces” after all it would be “your space”. It is ideal to those who teach but also to those who need studio space for practices. 

So the 10 hours per month divided by 4 week equals 2.5 hrs per week. If you are using this amount of Studio space alone or with another group maybe you are better off having the 3 entire days instead at the Studio I co-rent.

I want to keep this space for dancers. Should you be interested for yourself or yourself and one or more other groups who benefit in the long run (at least 1 year) of having their own space, voila! we can keep this space for dancers in downtown. 

The lease is signed by the tenant upstairs but you can have access to it if your would like. 

Let  me know please! 🙂 Email:  to inquire/ discuss!
