Studio Location

The Studio is located at 315 E 5th St, Des Moines, Iowa, on the second floor, stairs or elevator access available.

Set Up & Clean up

Set up and clean up time is part of the rental time. Additional time before or after is not permitted in order to keep the space available for other rentals. The studio must be left as it is found by renters with the door locked.

No Smoking or Open Flames

This should be fairly self-explanatory, but for insurance purposes, building guidelines and to keep everyone who uses East Fifth Studio safe, no smoking of any kind (including vaping) or any open flames (including candles) will be allowed.

No Pets or Live animals

To keep the space clean, no pets or live animals are permitted. Service pets are allowed.

No Confetti or glitter

Please help us all keep our sanity - your cooperation is appreciated!

No Sticky Stuff

Adhesive material of any kind is not allowed to be used on the walls or backdrops.

No Loud Or Overpowering Noise/Music

No loud and overpowering noise/music. Please be respectful to other building tenets.

Parking at the studio

There is metered street parking out front of the building where the studio is located.

Renting for workshops

Currently we are only offering rental of the space for photography and other creative uses. If you are interested in using the space for a workshop, please contact us.

Studio Lighting

The studio has west facing windows that allow for beautiful natural light, especially in the afternoon. We do not have any artificial lights to use at this time. If you are wanting any off-camera lighting, you will be responsible to bring for your use.

Backdrops, Props & Studio EQUIPMENT

A white seamless backdrop and minimal black chairs are included with a rental. Additional backdrops, chairs and studio equipment are available at an extra cost and can be added on when booking. To see all available items, visit our Backdrops, Props & Equipment page.

Cancellation & Rescheduling

If the Client wishes to reschedule, a 48 hour notice is requested to be given to the Studio. In the case of rescheduling, the rental payment will carry over to the rescheduled rental. Rescheduling due to weather is allowed day-of and will be agreed upon by both Parties.
