I’ve seen a lot of studios, but there’s nothing in the world quite like Michal Venera’s. For starters, it’s part of a 36-acre working sheep farm nestled in the rolling hills of West Marin, about an hour north of San Francisco. The studio itself is a soaring 5,000 square foot barn building with multiple interior spaces in a variety of finishes for lifestyle and still-life shooting, and all around it are endless natural settings and possibilities. Indoors or outdoors, this is a haven for shooting safely with all the distancing you need. It’s easy to see why it’s been a favorite of clients like Google, Pottery Barn, Nordstrom, Republic of Tea and Gallo for years. It’s not just a total studio-location package. It’s heaven on earth.
