Happy New Year to all our Union 206 members!
As you probably have noticed our studio membership continues to grow and this growth has made scheduling studio hours more of a challenge at times. In an effort to continue to serve our photography community, we are pleased to announce that in February, Union 206 Studio will be moving to a new location about 2 miles from our current location in Alexandria. The new climate-controlled studio will maintain the superior amenities you have come to expect from Union 206, in addition to featuring more shooting space. We are building a 30 foot cyc wall which can be used to shoot cars and other vehicles. Three large additional studios will be available for a total of 4 separate and private shooting studios. Each studio will have its own private lounge similar to the AREA we currently have in Studio A, as well as a private wardrobe/makeup room and plenty of lights and modifiers. The extra space will also allow us to hold more workshops that many of you have been asking for. There is also a very large kitchen space to support food photography.
As I write this, contractors are renovating the new space to give it that special Union 206 flair that will continue to impress your clients and models. We learned a few things from the first studio that we'll be implementing to make the studio not just look and feel great, but be easy to shoot in as well. We anticipate hosting tours of the new location during the last week of this month and expect to take bookings for the new space starting February 1st. We are also planning an open house in early February. The last day we will be taking bookings at the old studio will be January 29th. All memberships will continue to be valid in the new space. Anyone who does not wish to transfer their membership can cancel by sending us an email, as is always the case.
To celebrate this move, as of February 1st, we are giving all members in good standing one free hour to use between February 1st and March 31st.
Thank you for your continued support as we work to maintain Union 206's status as the region's top studio, serving all your photographic needs.
