The PROTEGE Photography Studio is a professional and full service photography facility located just 30 minutes from San Francisco in the city of Pleasant Hill.
Nestled away in a secluded hillside area, this property has been completely re-invented and transformed into a one of a kind production facility. Our location has over 20000 square feet ( half an acre ) of photographic space. The personality of the studio shows through in individualized furnishings, works of art, and architectural flourishes that ensure each photo shoot is unique and a far cry from the generic boxes in a typical photo studio. Here you find welcoming spaces, lush greenery, lovingly created art and furnishing that were picked by the founders. Our tropical garden location has over 15000 square feet of outdoor shooting area, which includes a Japanese Zen garden, pool side lounge area, private baby nursery, cafe bistro, children playhouse, merry-go-round ride, and many more. We have numerous props on set, including a collection of vintage vehicles and a classic 1959 fully restored Airstream Camper. There are over 100 different sets and scenes within the studio compound, many of which reflects multi cultural backgrounds and different themes. Everything about this property is organic and daring in style – an eclectic mix of culture, art and taste.
Our company philosophy is to create a photo production space with distinct personality that enhance our customers photo shoot experience. This is a studio with integrity and heart that people from different cultural backgrounds can connect to, and we promise you that the experience will be greater than the sum of it’s parts.
“Many studios we’ve been presents a shortage of personality and uniqueness,” said our company co-founder Mr. Leung. “ If you are searching for a small room with some white paper background, please look elsewhere, we are definitely not the place for you. What we specialize in is essentially a boutique shooting facility that offers a highly individualized experience to our customers, a studio space with a strong personality, one that challenges the status quo.”
The Protege Photography Studio strives to create something totally unique in the world of mundane, cookie-cutter mall studios. The tasteful, timeless design of our studio combined with our customer centric service mantra is what sets us apart from our competitors. We want this space to be not only to take beautiful photographs, but a space that our customers can relax and enjoy their time in an intimate setting.
