The Studio

UPDATED: January 4, 2018


Studio 253 is located at 708 Broadway in the heart of the theater district downtown Tacoma.

With Antique Row out the front door, and Opera Alley Court C out the back door it’s a photographers paradise!

This 450 square foot space has 13 foot ceilings, and a great vibe!

 It is a full working studio with lights, and two windows to allow for natural light.

The views out the windows just don’t get better than this…Old City Hall, The Clock Tower Building!

You’ll never go hungry sharing the same floor as Over the Moon Cafe, and walking distance to Puget Sound Pizza, & Stink.

Seriously, the best of both worlds…a beautiful, secure, private in-door photography studio, and outside the graffiti garages, Spanish steps, the Pantages Theater, the Rialto, and Wright Park!

If you are a photographer interested in studio space to rent, please give me a call  or text at 253.224.8040 or shoot me an email

I’d be happy to check the schedule.  Rental fees are $200 per day (8-6pm daily).  A $50 non-refundable deposit to hold the day playable via PayPal or Credit card.

I LOVE Tacoma!

“Studio 253 completely blew away any of my expectations. It is literally bourdoir heaven! Really, it was love a first sight! As a photographer, the abudance of natural light was like angels singing from the sky welcoming me into the studio. There is a huge variance of props and furniture, so you never get board. It is a very large studio, yet it has an extremely intimate feel. I live about 2 hours away from the studio, but I recommend booking this studio to every single one of my boudoir clients. It is SO worth it! You will not be disappointed. ~Melissa J. Soule”
