Hi, welcome to my site & thank you for viewing my profile. I am Andy Oliver & I run Ollie's Studio - a small but friendly & well equipped studio in East Sussex. More details of my portfolio can be seen under my Purpleport photographer profile (Andy Oliver).
Ollie's Studio is located in a converted barn on a farm near Polegate, East Sussex. The studio is 333 square feet and fitted with 4 Elinchrom BRX & 2 Elinchrom 500 Pro HD studio flash units with remote triggering. The room measures 5.62 metres x 5.37 metres or 18' 5" x 17' 7", which includes a small model's changing cubicle. The oak beam (shown) is at a height of 2.03 metres or 6 ' 7' so does not really interfere with shooting but has a boxing punch bag suspended from it for use in fitness shots.
For backgrounds, you can choose between black or white Colourama paper background rolls (operated via a pulley system) or a black crease free velvet type material background which is great for absorbing stray light. There is also a Lastolite reversible stone / brick collapsable background (see the pics of NJr in my portfolio). There is also some available light from 2 Velux roof lights & also a small side window which is good for portraits if used with one of the white polyboards. There are a selection of soft boxes including a large Elinchrom Octobox, a snoot, boom arms, beauty dish, a Tri Flector, black & white Polyboards and also a reversible silver & gold reflector with stand. I am in the process of fitting more suspended boom arms from the oak beams which will free up more floor space - I will post an updated image when the last of the boom arms are fitted (3 done, 1 more to go!)
The flooring is oak laminate & there is a small partitioned off changing area for models complete with a Hollywood style illuminated mirror. There is a black faux leather chaise longue, a posing stool & various sizes of black posing tubs (with white covers if needed). There is a wind machine which is great for portrait images of long hair blowing in the wind.
