Hi, I'm new to this group (and to Flickr in general) so please let me know if this is an inappropriate palce to post this kind of thing.

Basically I'm opening a photography studio here in Portland, and I'm looking for a few photographers to share it with. We already have a great spot that we move into this month, it's in the same building as Left Turn Studios, and is across the street from Clarklewis restaurant. It is 1000sq/ft has high ceilings, huge windows at one end, AC, coded entry, and 24 hour access. Unless I get objections, we're also going to have a cyc wall, to go along with the usual high end client meeting area, editing station, and large shooting area.

The rent is $375 in a four way split, less if you want to split it up further (but I'd like to keep it to 4). Let me know soon if you're interested, even if you're just interested in renting it out on an hourly basis, and we can show you the space.

Have you considered doing an hourly rate? I'm not a big fan of shooting in a studio, but it would be nice to have one available for a couple hours occasionally.

Yeah, we were thinking $30 an hour, and $100 for the day. I'm open to suggestions too, and everything is negotiable. If anyone wants more info, just message me, and I can give you my number, or you can drop by while we're working on the space.

And, just curious, how many people here would be interested in renting out studio time, and what would you be looking for in a studio? Feel free to just tell me what your ideal rent-able studio would be, magical flying monkey assistants and all, and I'll filter out the doable. :)

I'd possibly be interested in a split or even renting the place.

how many months or years is the new person committed to being a sharing partner?

I would love this but not thinking about studios quite yet... maybe in a few years. I would also be looking for one which would do double duty as general meeting space and possibly a need for an area to construct sets.

The only required length of time for rental is two months, just like a normal rental we'd like first and last months rent, that way we have some time to find a new person if you can't stay on. But we're really flexible, if you're in the space and something comes up for you and you can't stay, something can always be worked out.

Do you have all the slots filled? I'm seriously thinking about getting into a studio for the winter and spring.

Sorry, we have everyone we need right now, but the space can be rented out on an hourly and daily basis. If anything else opens up I'll be sure to post a thread here.
