about us

A photographic workspace and studio rental site in Cleveland, Ohio.

Serving as the primary shooting space for several Cleveland based photographers it has come to be one of the areas most versatile spaces to stage your visual productions. With over 1500 sq. ft. of usable shoot space and access to much needed shoot amenities, it is there to make your studio space needs convenient and affordable.

UpThree Studio began as the primary work space of digital media enthusiast, Michael Parks and was located in Tremont, Ohio. It quickly became apparent there was a need for rental space in the area as he was being approached frequently to rent the space out. It wasnt until latter that he had even given it much thought. As his work and interests took him more away from studio photography it become more of an option.

In the summer of 2013, Michael brought in Scott Byler as full partner and UpThree re-located to a new building with a whole new set of looks and shoot opportunities. UpThree Studio is now located in the Historic Slavic Village neighborhood of Cleveland, and boasts some vary unique studio features and warehouse shooting space.


The space is located in a renovated dry goods storage building that dates back to the mid 1800's in the Slavic Village neighborhood on Cleveland's southeast side. It is available for hourly and daily rental as well as select events.
