If you're on the hunt for a more high-end studio space, check out this spot on Geary Ave near Dufferin and Dupont. It offers up no fewer than 4,800 square feet of space behind an unassuming exterior.

Revprint Studio at Kipling and Lake Shore Blvd. W. is the only studio in the GTA that includes a studio technician and Elinchrom equipment with every booking.

Loft 302 is located in Leslieville, at Dundas and Carlaw. For decent rates, the boutique studio offers the gamut of extras, including dishes, a coffee press, makeup station, etc. The shooting area is 1,200 square feet of brightly lit space, and it can be rented for $35 an hour.
Studio 202 is one of the prettiest spaces on this list. It used to be a knitting factory, and the building was constructed in the 1940s. Given its quaintness and good energy, its rates are amazing: $150 for four hours, and $290 for the full day. Rates change on the weekend, though.
