The latest addition to the Pearl district is shooting to become the creative hub for photographers, musicians, and other artists.
The new 900-square-foot Pearl Studio, located at 300 E. Grayson St., is now open to the public for rental.
Led by senior studio manager Rebecca Berzewski and creative director and photographer JP Garrigues, the new studio aims to become a brainstorming hub for creatives in San Antonio.
It can be used for everything from creative content development to photography sessions and even complete video productions. It’s also available for portraiture, architectural, and lifestyle shoots, as well as e-commerce photography and the creation of educational, lifestyle, commercial, social media, and narrative videography.
The light-filled studio comes equipped with all the gadgets and props needed for photo and video shoots. It's available beginning at a two-hour rate of $150 and up to a daily rate of $600 and includes access to photography equipment like c-stands, sandbags, a rolling table, speakers, backdrops, a reflector, and more.
“We are thrilled to debut Pearl Studio, which will generate multi-use seasonal narrative content for Pearl, its tenants, partners, and third-party clients,” Pearl’s chief marketing officer Elizabeth Fauerso says in a release. “With in-house experts and a roster of fully vetted photographers, videographers, and designers, Pearl Studio acts as a liaison to connect brands with tailored talent and dynamic content.”
The studio is adhering to a variety of COVID-19 safety precautions, including implementing sanitizing procedures and encouraging frequent hand-washing; making masks mandatory for clients, associates, and operators; ensuring socially distant shoots; providing temperature checks for employees and regular COVID-19 testing of employees; and supplying hand-sanitizer stations throughout the space.
