Photography Studio


Here in the Inspiration Studios our spaces are unique in that they are available to ANYONE on campus. We built our photogarphy studio in the summer of 2019 and it houses a very nice setup. We have 6 different colors to choose from and a range of strobe lights for the photographer! The calendar below will let you see when we are available (pending other requests). Complete the form to book your available time and we will send you a confirmation or an alternate time close to your desired time.

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.

Our studio team can also help you get the photos by providing a staff photographer for professional headshots, team and staff photos, graduation portraits, passport photo and more.
