We are excited to announce the opening of Studio MadBird – a cozy daylight photo studio set at the base of the picturesque St. Johns Bridge in Portland. Photographers: this is a perfect location for your portrait, product, and still life shoots. Situated right next to one of Portland’s most popular wedding venues – St. Johns Cathedral Park – the space is also convenient for shooting wedding studio portraits.


  • Fantastic daylight shooting space
  • Second floor with two 7-ft south-facing arched cathedral windows
  • Full natural daylight or blackout for lighting control
  • High 12-ft ceilings, 400 sq ft shooting space
  • Wi-fi and easy parking
  • Basic backgrounds and support grip gear available
  • Affordable hourly rates

The studio is uncluttered and flexible to configure. In addition to sharing it with photographers, Patrick loves using the space for his stop motion animation projects, and it’s also terrific for client creative meetings. We also plan to host photo workshops covering an array of interests and techniques.

Many times, we’ve benefitted from the ridiculously awesome services of Mad Bird–most recently, the terrific motion design work of Patrick Neary at his boutique new Studio MadBird. But MadBird’s ranginess extends to high end cinematography (Neary’s been known to shoot features with a SteadyCam while riding backwards on a Segway), award-winning still photography, and many different kinds of animation. When you’re talking to MadBird, you’re talking to complete filmmakers. Did I mention they’re very sweet people? Because that’s a thing.
