When you visit us at the ImagePop on Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall, you will find our white box studio room equipped with professional and recreational photography equipment, lighting and accessories ready for you to use with your own camera or smartphone. Located in the Vault Virginia building, our subterranean studio is designed to make it easy and convenient to shoot updated head shots, social media marketing images and video content, product photography, photography student projects, and of course everyday photos with family and friends.
Ideal for creative entrepreneurs and businesses seeking fresh digital imagery as well as social media content, we’re here to make great DIY photography possible for everyone — without the need for a professional photographer, the perfectly-lit afternoon or a clean living room.
When needed, we partner with talented Charlottesville photographers for professional shoots and customized projects of all kinds.
I want to be in the arena. I want to be brave with my life. And when we make the choice to dare greatly, we sign up to get our asses kicked. We can choose courage or we can choose comfort, but we can’t have both. Not at the same time.
We know digital images are at the heart of so many important conversations today — in business, in community and everyday life with our favorite people. As the need and want for great imagery increases all around us, we’re here to make digital imagery fun, easy, convenient — but most of all: empowering.
