At some point it's more than likely that you're bound to shoot something or commission someone to shoot in New York. My Friend who just so happens to be a rather brilliant photographer/ set designer has just taken over a spacious photo studio in Long Island city. Offering a range of services the studio also happens to be connected to a prop house where you can find all sorts of pieces from the weird & wonder to the essential.
Eclectic Studios is ran by someone who knows the in's and outs of what not only photographers need but also set designers, they know how to deliver the best options creatively & commercially at competitive and most importantly affordable rates.
