Studio sessions are by APPOINTMENT ONLY. If you wish to tour the studio, appointments need to be made in advance. Our hours vary daily based upon the bookings we have scheduled and we cannot guarantee to be available unless you make an appointment with us in advance.
The renter must leave the facility in the same condition as when they began (CLEAN AND ORGANIZED). In the event that the facility is not returned to its original state, the renter will be subjected to a cleaning fee of $50. In the event that any equipment, fixtures, furniture, etc. are abused, broken or stolen during the rental of the studio, the renter shall be held responsible and will be subject to repair/replacement costs.

Going over the allotted booking time will result in the additional $50 fee. The staff of Light Hero Studios will give you a 15 minute heads up near the end of your booking time.
