Southfield – It’s hard not to make yourself look photogenic at this new space in Metro Detroit. This is The Pose Experience, selfie museum and interactive event space, now open in Southfield.

Located at 15618 West 10 Mile Road, this space isn’t just for people who want to take selfies with visual backgrounds, it’s also a spot where people can take creative engagement or graduation photos. It’s a space for a fun night out with friends and it can also be used to help individuals and area businesses with their content and to expand their social media reach.

“We’re ideal for photo shoots, for boutiques, for models and for small businesses that need to get content done,” co-founder Danielle Hughes told MLive. “We can also double as a content creation studio. Any business that needs a boost in their Instagram social media content.”

“We want to change this up every few months. These stations will change and we will have different collaborators,” said co-founder Dr. Danielle Penson. “One of the things we want to do is collaborate with area youth and have them create a station. This is a community opportunity for us to connect and give people an opportunity to be as creative as they can.”
