Studio Details

With a working area of 5.8 x 3.3m our studio is large enough for most subjects, and a five light set up with a huge range of modifiers such as softboxes, beauty dishes, snoot, honeycombs it is possible to create any effect that you want to.   For those wanting to shoot moving subjects such as dancers, our lighting is high speed sync compatible to a camera shutter speed of 1/8000th which is fast enough to freeze even the fastest moving subject!

Three wide backgrounds are kept permanantly set up, black, white, plus grey, which when used with one of our numerous lighting gels you can create any colour background you want. There is also a large selection of primary colour backgrounds and we also boast a 10x20' greenscreen background for those who wish to get really creative in post production!

We also include those little items that are often overlooked but invaluable during the shoot such as wet wipes and access to unlimited teas, coffees and cold drinks.  There is also plenty of free parking for several vehicles.

The studio is available by appointment only, between the hours of 10am and 9pm seven days a week, for only £10 per hour (minimum two hour booking)

All day bookings are just £60 which makes us the ideal studio for touring models wishing to undertake several bookings in one day.
