Blank Canvas Studios is now located inside the Phoenix Building at 721 Washington Ave. 48708, right on the corner of Center Ave. and next to Jimmy Johns. We are on the 5th floor in Suite 506. Please make an appointment to visit or use the studio.
Our Mission Statement
Our goal for Blank Canvas Studios is to provide a resource for legitimate professionals to grow and improve their businesses. Inherent to that goal is to help professional photographers distinguish themselves, and therefore the profession, from hobbyists and those running illegal businesses.
Previously, Blank Canvas Studios had an influx of requests for rentals and memberships coming from the general public wanting to take their own photos in the studio, rather than hiring a professional. To accommodate these requests would thus be counter to our mission statement.
Therefore, to better serve our local photographic industry, the following changes will take effect September 2018.
The following policies apply to both Single-Use rentals, prepaid cards, and new Annual Memberships.
- Blank Canvas Studios limits all memberships and usage to professional photographers, videographers, and other professional businesses only.
- Proof of liability insurance in the renter’s/member’s name is required for all rentals and memberships. This is for our safety, your safety, and the safety of your clients.
- Rentals must be reserved in the renting photographer or videographer’s name — for liability purposes, the room may not be rented by the client or model. (If you want to have your client reimburse you, that’s fine.)
- All requests for rental within 48 hrs. of rental date or less must be made by phone, not through our calendar.
