Recently a company, Breather Inc, out of Ottawa Canada reached out to me about private, beautiful, practical spaces for rent in San Francisco. They wanted me to give the rooms a test and see what I thought of them. At first I was a bit confused because I hadn't heard of anything like this. Rooms for rent? Was it an office? Was it a place to relax? And how the heck did it even work? When I asked for more info they told me they are great places to recharge after a long day, catch up on some brainstorming with colleagues or even use to shoot in. I hadn't even though about using it as a space to work with models.
After downloading the Breather app and checking out images of the spaces I was very intrigued. Their slogan is, "A space to call your own", and that's exactly what they are! They are beautiful spaces with lots of natural light. A place to get peace and quiet on demand. The rooms are all furnished and come decorated with all the latest fun books to flip through and even yoga mats! I was SOLD! I decided that I would try using the Breather spaces to shoot.
The rooms are super easy to use. All you do is download the app and sign up an account. Next you reserve rooms you want in 30 minute increments and check in with a personalized pin code. As of now, San Francisco has 13 spaces and they are continuing to expand. Breather is also located in Ottawa, Montreal, and New York. If you live in any of the cities that has rooms available I would recommend checking them out! They were also kind enough to give a promo code to pass along which gives you 1 free hour at a Breather room. Referral code : FKE7W2
Here are some images from the rooms I've used.
