Our StorY

Located on the 3rd and 4th floors of 36 east 30th street, we are a full service photography rental studio. Studio A, on the fourth floor, is Manhattan's only authentic North-light studio. We carry the latest in up-to-date equipment and pride ourselves in creating an intimate, professional setting for all types of shoots.

As of 2018, Highlight is now part of the Penumbra Foundation (also located in our our building). The Penumbra Foundation is a non profit organization that brings together the Art and Science of Photography through education, research, outreach, public and residency programs. 

We also have a spacious rooftop which can be used for shoots and can accommodate smaller events.
