It is so exciting to see The Studio at K|D being utilized by photographers and videographers who are a part of our exclusive photographer membership program. Our studio was made especially for photographers who specialize in corporate, branding, headshots, and portraits. We love seeing them work their creative magic with corporate clients who are also investing in their own businesses – it’s a win-win!

The Studio at K|D is more than just a photography studio; it’s a space designed to elevate the creative process. So what makes The Studio at K|D so special?

Here’s what photographers are saying they love about our space:

  1. Natural Light Abundance: Our studio is bathed in beautiful, natural light, thanks to the large 10-foot windows in every room. Say goodbye to harsh, artificial lighting and welcome an abundance of natural light for every photo shoot.
  2. Versatile Setups: We carefully designed The Studio at K|D with multiple luxury furnished vignettes for different scenes, ensuring photographers have all the flexibility they need. Whether they are capturing corporate headshots or dynamic branding shots, our space can adapt to any vision seamlessly.

  4. Diverse Materials: We believe that texture and variety can truly enhance your photography. Our studio features a wide array of textures and backdrops to experiment with.
  5. Matte Walls: Our matte walls provide a neutral and elegant background for subjects. They not only complement a variety of photography styles but also reduce glare and unwanted reflections.

The Design Behind The Studio at K|D

Posted on No Comments

The driving force behind The Studio at K|D is founder and owner, Julia Kirkendall of Kirkendall Design. Since design is the backbone of our company, it was an exciting endeavor for Julia and the K|D design team to transform our commercial building into a high-end, versatile event space. Follow along as we take you behind the scenes of the transformation and design choices that brought The Studio at K|D to life.

Lighting Design

One of the design goals was to transition the space, with its functional 8’ fluorescent commercial lights, to a more warm, inviting atmosphere. Julia drew inspiration from her travels, particularly boutique hotels that used lighting in unique ways. We added lighting in unexpected ways and places, such as above windows and flanking office walls. Many of the selections act as a showroom for the lighting Kirkendall Design uses in clients’ spaces.

Our favorite feature, however, is the reclaimed pendant lighting sourced from a church that was being remodeled. This lighting, with its cathedral-like grandeur, subtly nods to Kirkendall Design’s core values while also illuminating the high ceilings of The Studio.
