The Loft Studio in Downtown Los Angeles is Back!

November 08, 2021 By Apex Photo Studios Admin

We have an exciting announcement! Our Loft Studio is back and ready to be rented!

From actors and rappers, to Olympic athletes and tech commercials, the Loft Studio has been used for a variety of diverse productions– including productions hosted by the Apex Photo Studios team. We love shooting interviews, documentaries, and lifestyle photos in our Loft Studio. 

In this blog, we will talk about our beloved Loft and RooftopB, their amenities, access points, and some past productions.

Our Photo Studio Locations

Did you know that we have two photo studio buildings in Downtown Los Angeles?

Our main building is located in the Fashion District at 1024 S Santee St. STE #800. This space contains studios A, B, C, D, E, F, and Rooftop A.

With 7000 sqft to accommodate, the Loft Studio is perfect for your events, photoshoots, film productions, base camps, and more! Our open floor-plan Penthouse Loft includes a full-sized kitchen (great for culinary shoots), bar, washer/dryer, furniture, games (pool, ping pong, and foosball tables), private bathrooms, a soundproof sound stage, and even workout equipment!

What could I shoot at The Loft Studio?

In the VICELAND video shoot  where 2 Chainz tried some $3 million dollar virtual reality, the furniture offered a dynamic background which created a cozy, upscale industrial setting. It was the perfect space for the expensive VR technology featured in the video.  Our Loft Studio is perfect for modern brands who are looking for a unique, breathtaking background to house their next creative shoot.

Our Loft Studio also comes standard with home, game, and kitchen furniture and decor. This makes set dressing less of a hassle on you and your production team. You would not have to source, rent and load in/out set design pieces from another vendor since we have them here and camera-ready. 

Produced and shot by Apex, the video below was created in the Loft. We were able to utilize the furniture, pool table, and other areas of the space to create various sets within the studio.  You can see that the space was used for fashion and lifestyle video/photo content and eCommerce fashion photography.  

Don’t need all of these things for your shoot? That is okay too!

Our team is happy to clear the space to fit your creative photo or video shoot needs. Below is an example of the space cleared out for a workout video, produced by FitLife Productions, a leading fitness video production company.

The Loft Studio has direct studio access!

This photo studio location has a private entrance with a loading dock and freight elevator that takes you and your crew directly into the Loft Studio. This is perfect for celebrities and other high-profile shoots that need to be kept discrete.  Additionally, it makes loading equipment and materials in and out of the studios a breeze. 

Our team has accommodated a plethora of video shoots, so please contact us if you have special needs or requests, or simply have more questions.

What if I need a rooftop video shoot location?

At our Flower District location, Rooftop Studio B is located directly above the Loft Studio. Access to this dynamic and creative space is just a short walk away via a private stairwell.

The close proximity between Rooftop Studio B and the Loft Studio make them a perfect duo as a shoot and basecamp combination for larger productions. This roof provides you with 7000 square feet and 180 degrees of unobstructed views of northeast Downtown Los Angeles and beyond. 

For the Fabletics X Demi Lovato collaboration line shot on Rooftop B, they utilized the railing and brought in a boxing ring for this creative shoot! The Loft was used as a basecamp and greenroom.

See below for some beautiful shots captured by their teams!

 In the HP 360 tablet commercial featuring Chachi Gonzales, the Loft Studio's kitchen was used in the beginning. You then see her running up the staircase to our roof where she busts a couple of moves for the camera while listening to music on the new device!

Together, the Loft Studio and Rooftop Studio B have so much to offer in terms, of location, space, access, dynamic backgrounds, furniture and decor, and more!

Need a soundproof sound stage?

Located within the loft, we have a soundproof stage available for your recording needs.  This space is perfect for ADR/narration, podcasts, and content for YouTubers and Influencers. Additionally, we have a TriCaster production suite available as well.
