Equipment, Forms and Gear


Manhattan Beach Studios is an extraordinarily well-equipped facility. We enjoy every opportunity to utilize and assist in shoots and productions. Gear is available for use/rent in addition to the standard packages provided. We are always happy to discuss individual gear, packages and consulting services.

It is important to note that the Studio is run by professionals and we are almost always shooting as well. There is no assurance that gear will be available. Please be sure to include a request for gear with your booking, or certainly drop us a note if you have any particular request.  In addition, insurance certificates or credit card holds are typically required for the use of our higher-end gear.
