Photo Studio Rental
We all have a terrific opportunity in this transformative time (especially in San Francisco). The roles of image development, delivery and execution are changing. Our unique approach is a model for capturing custom projects - online presentation, motion and still imagery, brand programs, and special environmental design for helping inspire engagement.
Capitol Art offers a hip, yet cozy vibe and is great place to impress your clients on your next photo or motion shoot. Heck, your crew will love it too! The studio also serves as a excellent venue for events, corporate or otherwise. Please contact us for rates and details on bookings.
Forget about focusing a camera ever again. Say whaaaa? Lytro made a camera that you lets you pick the area of focus after you shoot. It's pretty obvious that Lupine's got the handle keeping focus, though. Nice work!

Sometimes life throws you a bone and you just gotta catch it. Catch it Mr. Kennedy did, on foot, chasing this guy down the street so he could photograph him. Though reluctant at first, Dax finally came down to see us at Capitol Art. He's everything you see here. All we did was give him the rabbit.

Great for networking and a cheap buzz!
You can't really tell these were shot here at Capitol Art, but they were. Well, the human aspects were at least. Tricky post production fooling us all!
Always a pleasure to work with the folks at Kaboom and Mr. Werby himself. Check the links below to learn about what else they've been up to.
We were totally inspired to host SF Dance Film Festival and their incredible team at our studio. The event was an informational invite-only happening to kick-off their exciting CO-LAB project. The Co-Laboratory is a unique collaboration between two teams of choreographers and filmmakers who will create two short dance films to be presented at the festival. The work is amazingly creative and we are honored to be part of this community.
