Apex Photo Studios: Creative Studio Space in the Heart of LA | Reach Further


(music) My name is Bobak Kalhor and I’m the owner of Apex Photo Studios in downtown Los Angeles. We rent studios, we rent gears, we rent equipment for filming, photography, videography, event space… The millennials, they’re there making movies with $10,000 worth of equipment.
