After a renovation this fall, HB Studios is getting up and running in Bolton Hill this week.

The shared space on Park Avenue is designed to provide tools for photographers and videographers who are just starting out. It’s sort of like a coworking space, but with full studio offerings.

As Human Being Productions founders Matt Kelley and Greg Bowen told us, the idea for the space grew out of the duo’s own experience as up-and-coming creatives in the city. They recognized that others who are building a business could benefit from access to tools that would normally require more expensive studio rental or ownership, and also see the space as potential community hub among creative professionals.

The space has chroma key and flat backdrops, as well as strobe and continuous lighting. Additionally, Kelley and Bowen will provide expertise on editing.

Initially, the space has spots for 10 members, with the potential to increase. Non-members can also make reservations to use the equipment, and access will be available  24 hours a day and seven days a week.

The HB Studios space used to be the headquarters of Human Being Productions. With the opening, Kelley and Bowen are moving their headquarters to a shared space of their own with design studio Post Typography in Charles Village.

Given recent news about shared artist spaces shutting down, the space’s opening indicates there’s still a model and demand for such locations to exist.
