shared work space — studio in oceanside for rent

Fellow North County graphic designer / photographer Myles McGuinness is looking for a new studio mate. The studio/gallery space is a couple blocks from the Oceanside Pier in the heart of downtown Oceanside, California. You could walk to the beach for your coffee break! Myles would love to share the space with another creative. It’s about $450/mo. If you’re interested, get in touch with Myles directly: fuel [at] 9myles [dot] com. 

Even if you’re not looking for a studio mate, take a moment to check out his work. It will blow you away. His saltwater photos are particularly spectacular.
