Remote Shooting

At Trident Studio, we have one of the most advanced and complete remote shooting set-ups in the UK. This means that as a photographer, anywhere in the world - you can now book any model that is able to travel to us as they would for a normal studio booking!

Our primary in-house model for this service is Amie Boulton , but we can organise other models for you, or you can book them yourself.

We're obviously in a difficult situation at the moment, so whether you're currently isolating for health reasons, or just really far away - this is a great way to keep your passion for photography alive, and add some amazing images to your portfolio. This set-up has proved so popular that we will still be offering remote shooting opportunities once some normality has returned.

If you would like to book the studio on this basis, you would be looked after by photographer Chris Conway - he will be able to create lighting based on your moodboard or take direction on the day, and then be on-hand to change composition of the camera, make changes to lighting etc as you go.

The cost for this service is just £25 per hour, the usual studio hire price is £20ph - so this really is a bargain, especially considering that we are the best equipped studio available in Devon & Cornwall. Your model's rate will of course be added on top of this - or you can even arrange TFP shoots using this service if you wish.

Due to the time it takes to set this all up, there is a minimum booking time of 4 hours, but you could even split this with another photographer if you wish.

All bookings for this service will need to be paid in advance online, via PayPal or bank transfer at the time of booking.

We have created a new Facebook group dedicated to remote shooting here if you're interested: https://www.facebook.com/groups/remotephotography


How does it work?

It really is incredibly simple from the photographer's end. On the day, you will be sent a link to a Zoom meeting (you'll need their free software installed) where you will take control of our tethering system at the studio. You will have a wide view of the studio via a webcam, and then both yourself and your model will have a live view of what our Sony A7R3 camera sees so that they can stay within composition for when you take the photo. This system does work best if you have a webcam and microphone, but a microphone is the minimum requirement so that we can actually communicate. This works best on a Windows or Mac desktop. A large screen is beneficial but not essential.

So if you are looking to do some shoots that would otherwise not be possible right now, this could be a great solution for you, and we hope that we can keep your desire to be a photographer going. Whether you'd like to arrange a remote shoot with model Amie Boulton or someone else within our area - please get in touch and we will do our best to make that happen.

Any questions? Please let us know and we'll do our best to answer them. Thanks!


The studio has been open for more than 12 years.
