connect - collaborate - create

art needs a home.  whether it's a photo shoot, a casting, a reading or a recording it has to happen somewhere.  trigger is that place -  a home for creative collisions.  it's also a great place to do pretty much anything from weddings to meetings to parties.

The Trigger Story

For nearly 20 years now, we have been irresponsibly overcommitted.  We have had an irrational desire to do it all……from wardrobe styling to photography to music to tech to casting to crafting, composition and theater.  We may be a bit deranged, but our commitment to engaging in creativity and collaborative arts with our friends and colleagues has always been our shared passion.  And NOW we built a space to bring everyone together in one room to really make things happen. 

TRIGGER.  A place to rock or photograph rockers or listen to rock.

TRIGGER.  A place to throw a party or go to a party or design fabulous food for a party.

TRIGGER.  A place to produce a photo shoot or cast a shoot or model in a shoot.

Be an artrepreneur.  Be a part of our Trigger family.
