How are you following the new guidelines?
At Studio 74, we have a main street access and are we are open by appointment only. We ensure our studio has the time it needs between sessions for cleaning and sanitization with a minimum of 15 minute breaks between sessions. We have also worked with local companies to ensure we have the highest quality cleaning products and hand sanitizer for our guests. As well, when in the studio, we are able to maintain a safe distance required by our government. We do not mandate the use of masks due to the nature of our business, so the distance is strongly
recommended and followed.
About Studio Seventy Four
Formally known as Mayka Studios, Studio Seventy Four is locally owned and operated by photographer, creativepreneur and cheerleader Kirsten, aka Captured By Kirsten. She is your host, supporter and educator looking to support all of your creative needs well before, during and after you book the Studio.
The Studio is located in the heart of downtown Collingwood at 74 Hurontario St, hence the name. It is on the 3rd floor of the historic Trott building where they once built all of the furniture of the ships. COOL right. Even cooler, Kirsten's partners grandmother was once married to the owner of Trott's furniture - Jim Trott. SO COOL and is also one of the MANY reasons she fell in love with the space. Along with its 360 degree view of Collingwood and the Escarpment, it also has natural light from all four sides of the studio. How could you not fall in love with that!?
Once in the historic studio you will fall in love with it too. It is the perfect space to connect, create and truly be captivated.
We can't wait to connect and create with you!!
