Studio 5 South has closed our Amber Street studio and is currently in the process of finding a new home. We are unable to provide studio space during this transition, but we look forward to serving you in whatever new Philadelphia home we find. In the meantime, the members of the studio and the owner can still provide you with the following services on a freelance basis:

About Studio 5 South:
Studio 5 South is a collective arrangement originally between seven founding members organized together by Philadelphia fashion photographer James Jackson (http://raveneyes.com) to provide affordable studio space to the members and Philadelphia area artists and photographers. We are located in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia. The neighborhood reminds us of SOHO in New York, before the buyout. The creative energy in the building is bustling and bursting and we are constantly inspired by our neighbors and the city we work in.
