Two New Photo Studios Open in the Near Southside

Oct 02, 2018

September saw the opening of two new spaces in the Near Southside catering to the needs of photographers and creatives.

The Lumen Room is owned by Xavier and Hilary Cinque, who have two locations already open in Dallas. Their 1,000-square-foot space is at 1124 Galveston Ave. just south of Rosedale, and features a kitchen and a variety of couches, chairs, and stools. The Lumen Room is available by the hour for photoshoots, workshops, and small events. 

The Lumen Room joins Studio Magnolia, which opened earlier in the month in the 1455 W. Magnolia Avenue building. It is also available by the hour and was opened by photographer Bree Linne to be a creative space for small businesses. Her hope is that Studio Magnolia can be a simple, easy, painless place for creatives and makers to photograph their work, their products, and their people.
