    My experience with Art Contra was exactly what it should be when dealing with a photographer/videographer -- knowledgeable, professional, and well-prepared. Whether on site or at their studio location, they we're extremely well-prepared and up to the task of not only sticking to the plan, but they were also nimble enough to make adjustments along the way to fit my needs. Will not only recommend, but mostly likely will contact them again in the future as well for more projects. Art Contra Studio is an asset to Thumbtack.

    My favorite studio, I love this place, its so comfortable, I was able to relax and work with no problem....the owners are very professional and will definitely work with them again. Not to mention the price is VERY reasonable ☺

    Art Contra studio is hands down the Best Place to shoot in New Jersey. Their team of industry professionals made my lyrics come to life with a dope visual they crafted from beginning to end. You won't find editorial quality anywhere at their affordable rates. Looking to work with these guys again soon!!
