Beverly Hills–For the first time ever, the City of Beverly Hills is inviting visitors to make lasting holiday memories at a new interactive photography pop-up where they can take complimentary, professional-quality photos in full-scale sets designed by celebrity photographer, John Ganun. The Scenario Studio: A Photomusement Experience is part of the third annual BOLD (Beverly Hills Open Later Days) Holidays, a citywide initiative aimed at enlivening the nightlife culture every Friday and Saturday evening with entertainment, holiday art installations and more.
The Scenario Studio is a Photomusement Experience that is open now through Dec. 22 at 262 North Rodeo Drive, where participants can create their own photoshoots on five unique professional photo sets, including Ganun’s signature “Upside Down” room and two inspired by holiday cult classics, “Elf” and “It’s a Wonderful Life.” On set, participants can style their own shoot using a variety of provided costumes and props. Each set is expertly lit with LED lighting, allowing guests to produce high-quality photos using their own smartphone cameras rather than typically required professional cameras.
The experience debuted on Nov. 14, the first day of BOLD Holidays that kicked off with the Rodeo Drive Holiday Lighting Ceremony and a live performance by Tony, Emmy and Golden Globe award-nominated TV actor and Broadway performer, Matthew Morrison. This year, the look and feel of BOLD Holidays was refreshed with the launch of a new visual identity designed by WRAPPED Studios and drawn from the work of its co-founder and renowned Los Angeles artist, Chuck Arnoldi.
“If opening night is any indicator, The Scenario Studio will be bringing countless smiles to Beverly Hills this holiday season,” said John Ganun, Co-Founder and Creative Director of The Scenario Studio, who has worked with celebrities such as John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian and many more for their private parties.
“We’re honored to offer a holiday experience in Beverly Hills that each one of its diverse visitors can enjoy – from multi-generational families on holiday, to locals shopping on Rodeo Drive. The Scenario Studio experience in Beverly Hills underscores the city’s commitment to art and visual culture by offering guests a place where they can embrace creativity.”
The Scenario Studio will be open daily (with an exception of Thanksgiving Day) with special appearances by John Ganun on November 30 and December 14 from 5 p.m.-10 p.m.
BOLD Holidays continues across the City now through December 21 with evening shopping and a series of complimentary activities including: live, seasonal entertainment and musical performances along the length of Rodeo Drive, spectacular holiday light displays, rides aboard The Jolley Trolley with Mrs. Claus, curated art walks and family visits with Santa at The Paley Center for Media.
