Tour the Studio

Location

Our studio is in the Cathedral Park Place creative complex, adjacent to St. Johns Cathedral Park. The park is one of Portland’s most popular wedding venues, making our studio convenient for shooting wedding portraits. We’re an easy walk to the great restaurants, brewpubs, coffee shops and services of the St. Johns neighborhood, including Blue Moon Camera and Machine, Portland’s uniquely film-centric camera shop and photo lab. A short drive across the scenic St. Johns bridge puts you in Northwest Portland and the Pearl District with its enormous array of world-class restaurants and services.

Details

Our 400 square foot studio features a cozy but uncluttered space with 12’ ceilings and two 7’ South-facing arched windows set into the brick wall, providing ample (and controllable) daylight for small shoots. The windows can also easily be blocked for complete control of strobe or other artificial lighting. Cathedral Park Place offers easy, free parking, large restrooms, and an on-site brewery/restaurant as well as furniture and prop rental.

Workshops

Studio MadBird will be hosting photo workshops covering a diverse array of interests and techniques. SIGN UP for our studio newsletter to get up-to-date info on these and other MadBird events! Are you an instructor or photographer with a great idea for a workshop to lead? We can do anything from simply providing the space for your fully formed workshop, or take your germ of an idea and produce it from the ground up.
