Studio Hire

Studio Hire

We can't let people use the studio without one of us present, but we are happy to hire out on that basis. Drop us a line and let us know your needs and we'll give you a price. Note that we can do out of working hours and weekend hire too!

The studio has easy parking and access, space to rear for outdoor shooting of vehicles. Disabled accessible throughout, including by wheelchair.

The studio is 670 sq ft.

Changing room available, two sets - standard backdrops plus a living room/boudoir convertible set. Range of props and clothes also available.

Lights are 3xElinchrom HD1000 with (currently) Speed triggers, expecting out HSS triggers any day now. We have a variety of Elinchrom and other light modifiers, going up to the 190cm octobox. 

Light blaster also available and all standard slides, plus some of our own.

Studio has motorised backdrops (black, grey, white, chroma green) and a lastolite hilite available.

Full tuition is also available, we welcome beginners too!

Tea, coffee, biscuits and jaffa cakes always available ;-) 


All prices include VAT, and a VAT invoice will be provided if needed. Payment is required in advance - credit/debit cards, Paypal and cash are all accepted, we will consider barter if you have something we want!

1 hour £50

1/2 day (9AM-1PM or 2PM-6PM) £120

Full day (9AM to 6PM) £200

Tutorial day - £150 per person. Tutorial days are by arrangement and we need a minimum number of people to make it work. We generally set a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4 people. You will learn:

  • How to set and manage exposure, white balance and the other technicalities of studio photography.
  • Light positioning and achieving the "right" light effect. Depending on the group, we will commonly cover 6-8 very different light arrangements.
  • Working with models
  • Cheap ways of achieving effects!

We can vary this depending on what you want to cover, just let us know.


We welcome camera clubs etc. and can offer discounted rates for larger groups although obviously access to lights will be in turns! Give us a call to discuss your needs.
