Hey guys, so I've been looking into finding some raw space to do a couple of model tests. Issue being, studio rentals are extortionately expensive in the area. Not to mention, it seems you can only rent per month rather than per hour. I am looking for a room with high ceilings, tons of natural light, and preferably light walls, but I'm flexible. Doesn't necessarily have to be a photo studio, just a blank room. If anyone has any ideas/places to check out, let me know. Thanks smile

Yep...wish they were higher as well.

The problem is your request for natural light and high ceilings.  There aren't any rental studios I know of that have both.
EP Levine in Waltham (20min NW) has high ceilings but no windows and are expensive:

CRMG in Newton (15min W) isn't too expensive but ceilings aren't really high (10' maybe?):

There aren't too many full-time commercial rental studios in the Boston area.
studioshare.org is a website for studio owners who rent out their studios, maybe they can give you more options there.

If you take a class at NESOP, you can rent their studio:

Piano factory on Tremont street. 12 feet and higher, lots of window light. But you have to know somebody.

If you don't mind going to Lowell there's an Artist co-op in an old factory. Huge old windows, exposed brick and timber frame, really nice place. My friend rents a spot there and I use it when I'm in the area.
