Welcome to Welkem Studio! Our charming 550 sq/ft daylight studio is in the historic Pioneer Square. This space is geared toward portrait sessions and smaller productions, but not limited to get-togethers, workshops, small seminars, yoga sessions, & pop-up dinners (or indoor tailgates)!
The overall space is 18' wide and 30' long and the shooting space is 18'x15'. There are three large windows facing west giving really good morning light and softer light thereafter. We have a cement wall that's painted grey, a white wall, and large windows. We have a mini kitchen with complimentary coffee (w/ french press), Vietnamese coffee, and green tea. Additional amenities include: B&O Beoplay Bluetooth speaker, First Aid Kit, & tampons.
This is space is across the street from the WaMu center. The closest coffee is Cherry Street Coffee. There are 2 foods kiosks in the area; The People's Burger and the classic Seattle Hot Dogs. The Silver Cloud Inn also has Jimmy's Bar & Restaurant open to the public.
There are a couple parking lots in the area and metered parking on the streets. We're right across the street from the WaMu Center, so plan accordingly!
