Your Studio at THE 9 - $187 per month

It all started when...

We realized that artists and creatives needed a space of their own in NYC. As photographers ourselves we knew the market and decided to open something affordable but still exciting and professional.

THE 9 is a photographer's collective with two locations in SoHo and Williamsburg. We offer unlimited studio time, free equipment, and your choice of location for each shoot. This is the absolute best deal in NYC and if you find something cheaper or better we will match them!

Each studio has natural light, equipment, and modern editing stations. We also have a cyc wall in our large studio in East Williamsburg.

But the Nine is about more than beautiful, shared work spaces. We want to build a community (think Andy Warhol's Factory). A place you join as an individual, 'me', but where you become part of a greater 'we'. A place where we're redefining success measured by personal fulfillment, not just the bottom line. Community is our catalyst.

The main studio is housed in historic 9 Bleecker Street (near NYU, Cooper Union, the East Village, and SoHo).

What Makes The Nine Unique:

The Nine offers photographers more than just space. Here are some of the highlights:

  • A chance to meet and work with other great photographers and clients

  • All equipment is included with monthly rental (cameras, lighting, editing stations)

  • Food and beverages provided in the common area at no cost (beer, coffee, snacks)

  • An excellent value for one of the best locations in NYC in the heart of SoHo. Studio space is accessible to photographers on a variety of budgets.

  • Users can advertise that they are based at The Nine Studios, including meeting with clients in the studio, having a desk, and will be encouraged to think of this as their own studio.

  • Other perks include gallery space, guest speakers (established photographers), workshops, use of Overthow Boxing Gym (located on ground floor), and access to exclusive social events.

In short, we are building a community of passionate photographers centered on excellent studio space in the heart of lower Manhattan for less than the price of rentals in almost any neighborhood.
