Client Feedback

A pleasure working with Qasim! The space is perfect for a photo shoot or small video production. The space is also great for clients or high profile talent / celebrities. Working with Qasim was exactly what we wanted when working with a studio. They were flexible, accommodating, friendly staff, professional and responsive. Highly recommend!

StartWell Studios provides a clean, modern space, perfect for filming. There are bathrooms and a makeup table for quick outfit changes and appearance checks. They also provide different backdrops for photos and videos. All the furniture is modular and movable so you can set up any scene you want.The cafe area provides a great environment to check emails, regroup and brainstorm before and after a shoot. The coffee is smooth and strong, like their Wifi.I highly recommend working with their production team. As someone who doesn't like to see herself on camera, their team guides you through the entire process from booking, filming and editing.
