No, I do NOT want to use it. I was curious if anyone else thought it might be useful as a studio to them to see if I was missing something. Again, no partitions, no props, sets, minimal lighting, all glass front wall. Would you find it useful as a studio? Honestly, it just looks like a vacant strip mall office.

Maybe I'm just missing its potential.

Are you asking because you want to use it?
Or because you think it is not adequate?
the prices seem to be good from where I am. (SoCal)
Especially if it includes access to that roof top pool/deck area.

I suppose that if she makes enough money a cove and lighting rail system will show up sometime.

Well it is a "store front".
But it seems to work for her style of shooting.
Like I said, I would atleast install a coved floor or even a corner cyclorama.
and the "ambient" light you disdain is a source and quality all its own.

depending on the window's orientation to the sun's track, this may provide a nice soft light all day most of the year.

I don't know if I'd like to have my clients "on display" as we work; but I could always set the drop with the back to the window.

So yeah, I think you are overlooking some ideas for working in such a space.(including that roof deck!)

if I mock you, it may be well deserved.
