CUSTOMER NOTICE 7th July 2020.
We hope everyone is well and still going strong at this difficult time.
We are pleased to announce that we are open and we look forward to welcoming customers again. Tentative date bookings can now be made, without deposits being required to confirm.
This is in case of last minute changes that might be imposed by Corvid19 restrictions locally on movements by the government, or our own, or you or the models personal health changes, and notices to self-isolate etc.
Bookings are now being taken for one to one shoots, model and photographer, Including studio days by models with individual slot bookings.
Exceptions to this:
Duo shoots. If the models are happy that they are safe to work together and have met the household contact restrictions still in force.
A third person will be allowed as a chaperone if needed for the model as long as the chaperone is from the same household as the model.
Also. We are aware that some would like to employ a MUA, but It’s obvious that using a MUA will be difficult to do and achieve social distancing. So until the government lifts social distancing to allow this we are unfortunately governed by this restriction at this time unless the MUA is also from the same household as the model.
If the situation continues to improve, and allowed by the government, and social distancing is relaxed, We are also planning to allow group shoots to take place from August 1st .
Again, Advance date bookings can be made for Group shoots and model days, as above, tentatively, and without the need for deposits. As above, in case of last minute cancellations based on any restrictions suddenly being imposed or any personal health changes.
We are providing Hand gel and anti bacterial wipes and hand wash. It is up to the photographers and models to supply their own gloves and masks.
We hope that the current situation continues to improve and we can all get back to creating beautiful art work again here safely. But watching the idiots ignoring social distancing on our news channels we have little hope that this will happen. We can only hope Darwin’s law quickly eliminates the stupid without taking too many of the intelligent with them.
Take care everyone and we look forward to seeing you here soon.

Check out the model/studio collaboration charges where a one off hourly fee gets you a model and exclusive use of the studio per hour helping you to budget your shoots. I am also looking to add local models, MUA's and photographers on the web site who are prepared to work here. I aim to provide a one stop shop for everyone to collaborate from.
We have a purpose built graveyard set with full size realistic gravestones and a crypt. Lots of spooky skeletons, figures, zombie and other props. A witches broom and several outfits for hire from black bride to grim reaper. Used with the smoke machine photographers have managed to create some stunning atmospheric shoots. Ideal for that zombie, goth or vampire shoot at any time of the year.

Movie and Film Special Effects
We also have links to a local special effects company who can add that special something to your images. From explosions to fireballs..work with them to create unique images in our outdoor space. We also have our in house smoke and snow machines to hire.
We have a six person Hot Tub set for use as part of the studio hire. Green tub with light blue liner, as well as the facility to hang a green screen around the tub, makes this ideal for selective editing. Tub is under the decking space and surrounded with wicker brash screen. It is raised so you can easily take eye level shots.
If we are somewhere you would like to shoot then please get in touch. You are more than welcome to come along and see for yourself what is here and have a chat before you book. A cuppa and a chocolate biscuit is always on offer.
See the website (far forest studio dot com) all one word, for times prices and more images. Website is constantly being updated, or follow us on face book, Twitter and instagram for updates.
The Images below are all done by myself over the last five years. Of late I personally have been concentrating on wildlife so I have to get back into the swing of photographing people again.
As you can see I like drama and character in my work so if any model has an idea that they would like to work with me on then please drop me a line. I am also looking for models who want to work with me on a TFP basis for fine art portraiture photography.
As an add on, I am in the building stage of more additional sets for the woods which will give you greater scope for image Creation.
