Sometimes, you just need a studio to get the perfect images for yourself or for your clients. White vinyl and white paper can only get you so far, but when you need the advantages of a full cyc wall, it’s not easy to find the right space to build one out. That’s why we created 2NDSPACE, a photo and video studio rental space in the heart of Downtown Wilmington, NC. We know how convenient it is to be able to walk into a space, turn on and adjust the lights, tether if you want, and start shooting, so we created that space for everyone. Extremely versatile with infinity white, with options for various paper or cloth backdrops to mount and follow the 2-foot radius for limitless opportunity, a full compliment of lighting and light modifiers, this is your perfect 2NDSPACE. Located at 221 N. 2nd Street, 2NDSPACE is the perfect spot for all types of photography and video.

Seamless infinity setup for products, people, and all measure of creativity.

Lighting available with White Lightning X1600 strobe heads, stands and various light modifiers including 7′ Parabolic umbrellas. For video shoots we have 3 Genaray SpectroLED studio 500 BiColor LED lights with diffusion.


WiFi is available for instant upload, tethering available with the in-studio iMac, and image review or proofing can be done on the big screen.


Audimute acoustic absorption sheets to cut down unwanted echo and outside sounds. Pre-hung if needed, removed from the studio if not.
