About Us

As they say, “Good things come in small packages”. That’s exactly what Le Petit Studio Blanc represents. It is a photogenic and inspiring little white studio, drenched in natural light with an enormous heart.  We get it: when you don’t have alot of money to throw at your work, renting a space with natural light can sometimes be prohibitive.  This is a studio for photographers with a limited budget but big ideas.

Working at Studio Blanc supports communities in need
The owners Lex and Amelia are beyond excited to be able to share this space with artists to realise their visions and also to have the opportunity to donate a portion of the rentals to charity organisations that are doing great work to help vulnerable women and children.

For the month of April, May and June, Le Petit Studio Blanc will be donating to Unicef Syria Crisis Appeal.

Uses

This 28sqm space is petit but with an enormous potential. It has a beautiful open space common area with kitchen amenities and a common balcony area that is photogenic.

Le Petit Studio Blanc is suitable for creative events such as exhibitions, fashion showrooms, launches, workshops, presentations, photo-shoots, filming, makeup trials, or for artists who need an inspiring space to draw, paint, or create. The possibilities are endless.
