Photo session in progress.

This is a spacious (16' x 24') general-purpose photo studio with:

  • Two paper-roll backdrops with a variety of backdrop colors.
  • Four remote activation photo strobe lights.
  • DSLR cameras and lenses.

You may use our equipment or bring your own. The photo studio is used primarily by MPS staff to take photos of faculty, staff, and students of CSUSM, including headshots for online resumes for grads.
