yesterday, i was there and wanted to see the studio and equipment, but did not get to as someone brought the key with him when he left the club premises. and i could not wait for him to return. if you an existing safra ordinary member, you may apply to join their photographic club at any safra outlets.
Safra's old studio had let see 2 x 500 wats of the new elinchrome flashes and an old 1600 bowens. Soft boxes and umbrellas avaialble.
The 2 main cons about renting from them are the hours - basically its office - week day night is in theory possible but you need to do advance booking. Sat its up to 12noon sunday forget about it. The second is I think they need to know if you know how to use the light properly - while any one can try to use studio flashes there are some who are either ignorant or plain do not care and work the flashes wrongly examples motor drive flash aka fashion channel news.
Membership is $18 per year.... use of darkroom is subject to a check if you have basic darkroom training - they used to need to see a cert from your darkroom course or you have to satisify there darkroom instructor that you know what you are doing... same principle protect the equipment from abuse.
Anyways best talk to Lawerence about call in email could be slow in coming back.
