I had the distinct pleasure Tuesday night of getting a private tour of Atlanta’s newest multi-purpose space—Kuja Studios Atlanta. The luxury digs are located within the historic Old 4th Ward (O4W) District and features over 1,700 square feet for your next celebrity photo shoot or VIP soiree or press conference.

Kuja Studios Atlanta features a modern, sleek, pure white interior that allows for all sorts of creative projects to truly shine through. The room’s backdrop includes large daylight windows, exposed brick, original concrete floors and a view of the city’s most exciting and new attraction—The Atlanta Beltline.

Kuja Studios Atlanta is one of two unique spaces (there’s also a Kuja Studio L.A.) owned by model & photographer Devon Spence and marketing guru Paul Lewis. With over 9 years+ in front of the lens, Devon has accumulated a vast amount of professional industry experience that has allowed him to turn his passion into a reality. For Paul, the new studios are merely an extension of his growing music and entertainment marketing brand.

“I am beyond grateful for this blessing. MUSIC is the love of my life and has allowed me to expand into other businesses. Now all my artists, business owners, event planners, models, actors, public relations, radio and management people have a creative space to call home in Atlanta,” says Paul in a statement.

The name Kuja comes from the legendary Japanese video game “Final Fantasy.” Kuja is the most powerful character whom you must defeat in the last stages to win the game. This can be seen as a metaphor of fighting for what you want until the end. Kuja represents courage, strength, and perseverance.

Kuja Studios Atlanta will officially open in October. Until then, CLICK HERE  to see more photos and to set up your appointment.

With a space like this, you know I had to take full advantage of all the “lighting and angles” right? So check out my impromptu photo shoot that was taken with my iPhone and converted to black and white images.
