For $20 per hour this place could have a staff of rabid circus monkeys and it would still be a bargain. Wish I was in NYC!

It certainly sounds like a good deal, but 10x10 is not a lot of space.

We like to under promise and over deliver.  No one has gotten less than a net of 12 x 20 shooting space so far...

The studio now has a regulation size table tennis/ping pong table.  Photographers, if you find yourself waiting for a model in makeup (or to show up), we can play a game or two...

What, can't parse more than 21 characters at a time?

It says "a 10' x 10' "shooting tent" plus adjoining free space". 

No one has gotten less than a 10' x 20' shooting area to date...

I was laughing at the whole idea of a 'shooting tent'. Too funny!

EDIT: It just dawned on me that you're catering to a specific type of photographer.

Price is very good no doubt, but 10x10 or for that matter even 10x20 is not that much of space.
I'm considering my 11x14 studio very small, and it significantly limits me at times in terms what I can do with lighting setups. Do you have 20x20 tents? And how private are your "private tents"? How much would be to rent whole studio?

The full studio is 30' x 40' clear open loft space.  When we say 10 x 20 we don't mean a room with walls that size, but usage of an area within a larger space, which means wardrobe happens outside your shoot area and bags, equipment, etc. too.  Lights can extend outside your space if you don't want to draw the tent curtains.

The tents have light blocking tops and side curtains.  Visually they can be completely private.

Renting the whole studio is $40/hour.

Come check out the space or get an invite to the studio's next networking party later this month.

Ah, OK, its explains it better! Most of my shots done with side and back lighting. For that reason I looking for studio to shoot some payd gigs that I won't be able to shoot in mine. If lighting could be set outside of tent it should work.

I'm most certainly would do both! Please PM me info about your networking party!

Want a free hour of shoot time at Space-4-Shoots?  Next time you have a shoot there, play and beat the studio manager at ping pong (best of 3 games) and you'll get a free hour of studio shoot time!

Open to photographers, models, and MUAs while at a shoot in the studio.
