Fynn Studio | All The Info You Need

Oh hey hey, thanks for wanting to know more about our studio space!


You've landed on the ABSOLUTE best spot to get all the info you need - videos, pics and 3D tours! We list every single item that is and isn't included in your booking in this post.


HERE'S ALL THE INFO:

We regularly update our studio space, and update this blog post at the same time - so that the images and videos in this post reflect the most recent changes to the space. All props, decor and furniture shown in these photos should be available during your booking (unless it's maybe in for repairs or similar). If there's something specific you'd definitely like during your booking, please chat to us on email during your booking process.

[MOST RECENT UPDATE: MAY 2022]



VIRTUAL TOUR


First up, step inside our virtual tour! We have a full 3D rendering of the space, for you to get a great idea of what you can expect - have a peek here.




THE SPACE


Fynn studio is a 120 square meter natural light photographic studio located in Parktown North.
​It features one full opaque plexiglass wall, which creates the most beautiful diffused light.

You will have sole use of the space during your time.


It is not soundproof, but we have successfully hosted video shoots.





DECOR REVAMP


In May 2022, we did a decor revamp at Fynn to freshen up the space. All images and videos contained in this blog post show the most recent decor.


This video walk-through was shot in May 2022:

OUTDOOR AREA


You are welcome to use the outdoor area directly outside our studio space.


Please do note the studio is part of a multi-use office space. Please be considerate to our neighbours, and do not shoot directly outside the other offices, especially during the week. Our assistant will be there during your booking to help guide you to the allocated shoot spots.


Please do note that smoking is only allowed in the parking lot, by the front gate.




THE LIGHT


As a natural light studio, we are passionate about how glorious the light inside our space is - we LOVE it!

We've recorded some video walk-throughs of the different times of day, so you can experience the light for yourself, and know which time of day is best for you to book.


Here it is.

Please note that our studio DOES NOT come with any studio lights, stands or gear.

You are welcome to bring your own, or rent (for a discounted rate!) from our trade partner Sunshine Co.




ASSISTANCE


You will meet one of our amazing studio assistants on the day of your booking - she'll be there to check you in, and make fab delish cappuccinos throughout your day!


(These drinks and snacks are available for purchase on the day through Snapscan or your banking app)



PARKING


We can fit about 3-5 small cars inside our parking bays. We do suggest that if you have more attendees than that, that you uber/carpool.


Also, chat to us about hiring our lovely security guy to watch the cars outside.




2. WHAT'S NOT INCLUDED



THE ADD-ONS


We love offering MORE! So we've created a fun styling section, packed with optional add-ons for you to use during your booking.

Our styling add-ons are currently charged at R150 for all of the below items. This price may be subject to change as we continue to grow this section of the biz.

Please chat to us before your booking to check on the current colour of the painted backdrops (we'll be updating these every few months), and to see what our styling section currently contains.


- 1 x styling trolley, packed with props in pinks, brass, creams and browns

- 1 x set of styling boards (six boards, with a variety of fab textures and tones)

- 1 x set of 3 arched backdrops (these are painted fresh colour and prints every few months)

- 1 x inflatable queen sized bed and white linen


Please let us know ahead of time should you like to use the bed, as it takes 20 minutes to inflate, so our team will start this before you arrive.


These items are OPTIONAL add-ons, you are more than welcome to bring along your own props and decor for your session.

SNACKS


We know shoots are hungry-work, so have recently added a snack bar to our space, yay!
