Does anyone know of good cheap studios to rent in the Los Angeles area?
I want to do a studio shoot.  But of course I don't have a studio.  I also don't have a lot of money, so a studio that offers discounts to artists would be fantastic....

There was a thread about a reasonably priced well eqiupped studio in Canoga Park, I can't recall where I saw the thread.

It might be in this thread?

I have a very small studio that I rent out super cheap through word of mouth to friends and local photographers at times.

It's actually just a converted garage in my backyard in Culver City off the 405, but does have black, white, & gray 10' wide backdrops, a couple strobes and softboxes etc.  Most of the stuff in my port was shot there.

It's nothing fancy AT ALL, but I've rented it out to people for $15/hour if they're just looking for space and lights. Just in case that fits what you're looking for.

Without any particular reference to said studios.

Be careful, there are some studios in some not so great parts of LA that are cheap, you can get robbed or your car broken in to.

Always check out the area the studio is at before you rent.
