Hi , Welcome and thank you for taking time to look at The Millhouse page.
Update August 2021
We have managed to survive the last 18 months and have come out on a stronger footing in spite of all the hassles and trials and tribulations. We hope that others have faired ok too and that we can return to a sort of normality.
Here at The Millhouse along with the studio we now have a full blown restaurant / cafe and farm shop so there is no reason to go hungry or thirsty. There are good changing and toilet facilities and the studio itself remains secluded and private. The studio retains much of it's industrial character and remains a studio with quirky props, good window light and a concrete floor. Public seating outside means that caution may be used when photographing art nude by natural light though muslin curtains are available.
In summary we are quirky, friendly and reliable with a bank of good lighting from large Octos to small softs and grids. Stands & Boom arms etc are all as you would expect to see in a professional commercial studio.
Hourly rate : £25 / hour for minimum 2 hours and £20 / hour thereafter.
Half Day rate : £80 for 4 hours.
Full Day rate : £150 for 8 hours shooting (so that means you can stop for lunch!).
Assistance is offered free of charge for those who require it. Shoots are able to take place with no interference once the basics have been sorted out.
The studio is run by myself and my work can be seen at www.orwinstudio.com.
Here at the Millhouse in Somerset we have semi restored a derelict building of Victorian Industrial Character which operates as a Commercial Studio. That being the case we have a vast array of lighting and props as you would expect and a variety of space and rooms for changing and desk space.
The studio itself is on the ground floor with good access and has excellent daylight so can be used with natural light just a easily as with studio lighting.Many people have booked the studio principaly because the natural light offers great opportunities.
There are several aspects to the studio and features such as iron girders and distressed walls. Whilst we do have outside areas they are not available for Art Nude or Glamour work, sorry.
The studio is available for hire please see new arrangement above.. All breakages and consumables must be paid for as extra but tea coffee and biscuits come courtesy of the studio.
The studio is more limited now for art nude work as we are developing the site for more public access. However studio art nude remains practical but we do ask that models dress accordingly if they visitother parts of the building.
We have on site parking right by the building and we have good changing and toilet facilities. We are easy to find being just off the main Southfields roundabout between the A303 at Ilminster and the A358 from Taunton.
Hey - if you still happen to be a lover of using b&w film ( which we are!) we have a fantastic fabulously equipped darkroom. So why not shoot in the morning and develop and print in the afternoon? What better way to spend a day?
Monochrome Wokshops are a speciality here so do get in touch if interested, experienced and beginners alike.
Stay well and do keep in touch in these tough times.
