f/8 is back open for hire. The studio has been 'bio-fogged'. This is the same device that is used to sterilise hospitals and laboratories. The enzyme in the solution stops viruses and bacteria from being able to reproduce for 30 days. Therefore, this will be completed every 30 days until the country is completely virus free. 

 

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 owner Paul Davies. Paul has been in the photography industry for over 17 years and has a wealth of knowledge and experience he is willing to share. 


f/8 Studio is an 800 sq/ft space located on Bristol Road, on the Moreland's Trading Estate. This used to be a match factory, so our surrounding's are full of interesting architectural inspiration. We are a 20 minute walk from Gloucester train station and can offer pick up and drop off services 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 lots of natural light that spills through the industrial sized windows. We can also block out 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.
