Officially open, booking's now being taken, come along and see our exciting new space. 

Welcome to f/8 Studio, in the heart of the stunning city of Gloucester, minutes away from the beautiful Gloucester Docks, and the Gloucester Quay's designer outlet. A truly inspirational setting for photography.

f/8 is a new studio space, with new studio owners, Paul Davies and Alley Stallard. Paul has been in the photography industry for many years, with exceptional knowledge to share with you all, and Alley already owns PoZer's Studio, in Swindon, Wiltshire, (now f/8's sister studio) so has 4 years experience, in running a successful and creative hub for the industry, so as a partnership, in f/8 you will have a truly amazing photographic experience. 


f/8 Studio is an 800 sq ft space, located on Bristol Road, on the Moreland's Industrial Estate, which used to be a match factory, so our surrounding's are full of interesting architectural inspiration. We are a literally a 20 minute walk from Gloucester train station but we can offer to pick up and drop off for those models who are not familiar with the area. The studio is available for model studio days, professional and amateur photo-shoots, filming, events and private hire. 

The studio has various photographic areas in which to shoot, with furniture and props which are sure to inspire your creativity. 

A large section of the studio has white wall's and floor, amazing for High key themed shoots' and the natural light spills through the industrial style windows, or we can block the natural light, and create amazing low key studio lighting. This space is also easily adapted with our selection of fabric and themed backdrops, including a selection of coloured papers etc. We will be adding to our variety of backdrops as the studio evolves, and any of the backdrops at our sister studio PoZer's, is also available at f/8 upon request.
