CAPE TOWN ISSUE 551 Sep 2015


Located on scenic farmland just 20 minutes from central Cape Town, Studio 26 is a dedicated location facility consisting of two components constructed exclusively for production use. It caters to both stills and cine productions of any size and description.

The Open Air Studio: An outdoor studio consisting of an open roofed building structure, stairs, deck area, doorways, open windows and plenty of neatly paved floor space. With limitless angles to shoot from, it is a favourite with catalogue photographers and provides a blank canvas for art directors to turn into any scene imaginable.

The Lake Houses: Custom-built to give Cape Town the one thing it did not have - a rustic timber, lake-side cabin complete with classic jetty and a set of shabby-chic huts. Referencing both the American north, Alpine cabins and the Caribbean in one spot, the Lake Houses have been used extensively for countless outdoor themes. Ideal for any vintage theme, re-create New Orleans, the Caribbean or the Old West. Moveable decking sections and a vintage pick-up truck are some of the props provided to complete the picture. Picturesque backgrounds, vehicle access, and the possibility of waterborne themes such as swimming and boating increase the many possibilities.

"At Studio26 anything is possible!"
