About the studio
Gasmoney Studios is a fully outfitted, loft-style photo studio and creative space. Designed for creatives, by creatives, Gasmoney Studios is jointly owned by photographer Joe Friend and filmmaker Sean O’Neill. Inspired by the industrial loft designs of New York and LA, its is the result of their vision to bring a fiercely original and inspiring creative space to Denver’s artistic community. We sit within a 900 square-foot corner unit of the historic Dry Ice Factory in the heart of the RiNo Arts District, providing an unprecedented space to natural light and experienced studio professionals alike.
Located just half a block off of Larimer Street, we’re situated in one of the most artistically coveted areas of the city. Our studio offers a sophisticated, yet industrial urban space that has been carefully curated for both established professionals and up-and-coming creatives.
Born from the notion that “Inspiring spaces fuel creativity”, Gasmoney Studios invites you to experience our mantra. More than just a studio, we aim to celebrate the creative community and highlight the talents of everyone that have inspired this endeavor.
