Deco Studios

Photography Studio | Santa Ana, California

About Us

Providing a personal creative photography studio for fellow photographers and other creatives.

Located in a 1920’s brick building on the edge of the historic Downtown Santa Ana Arts District, Deco Studios was founded with one simple idea in mind: create a personal, single unit, photography studio and creative space that can harness and inspire creativity through the use of light in all it’s forms, including natural light. The entire north facing wall of the studio is floor-to-ceiling windows with blackout window coverings for blocking unwanted light, or when natural light is not needed. Deco Studios is proud to be one of the only studios locally that is a single unit studio (you won’t ever be sharing the space with someone else). Whether you’re needing a place to photograph, teach a photography class, or hold a workshop, we’re here for you. Contact us now to schedule a visit. Come see what it’s all about.

Also, even though it’s an old building, we have central AC and heat that can be easily set. You won’t ever have to worry about temperature for your clients and models.

Deco Studios is also the proud home of Light & Shine Photography.
