Rochester Studios, run by Gino, Iain, Dave, Dan and Zoe, is a small studio but able to offer something a little different. Set in an old wharf side location that was once a brewery, we have converted it into not one studio but several separate and distinct areas offering something a little different in each.
Our main studio area has a 5m wide infinity cove, a laminated floor area and two black walls. There is also a small kitchen area in the corner for refreshments. It is ideal for fashion and portrait work.
Moving out of the main studio we have a dedicated makeup and changing room with mirrors, clothes racks and even the important sockets with built-in USB charges to keep those phones charged up!
Next, we have our first dedicated themed area. Currently this is set up as a small bar area with a bar, beer pumps and pub tables and chairs.
Opposite the main themed area we have a second set made up as a small bedroom with a double bed and a dressing table, ideal for boudoir style work.
The creativity does not stop there. Moving to the back of the building we are fortunate enough to have an old 1920s style slam door lift with wood panelling, which is extremely popular for shooting in. This area also has two different graffiti covered sliding doors for a nice urbex finish to a shoot.
As of April 2019 we extended the studio to include the top floor of the building which adds a large open plan space with natural lighting.
The ground floor studio can be hired for just £15 per hour without studio lights or £20 per hour with lights. We are able to supply five 400w Elinchrom heads and three 200w Elinchrom heads with a range of modifiers including simple reflectors, strip soft-boxes, beauty dishes and a large octo soft-box. The heads are wireless triggered and can be operated as slaves to complement your own lights.
The top floor studio can be hired in addition to the ground floor for an additional £10 per hour. Please note that currently there is no electricity supply to the top floor but we are waiting for the landlord to reconnect it so you may wish to check with us before confirming a booking.
See our website for more information on the studios and equipment.
As mentioned, the studio is in an old wharf side building, next to the river in Rochester High Street, which offers some fantastic outside locations to shoot should you want to venture outdoors.
We know photographers want to see shots of the studio on portfolio notes so we have set up the Studio Images album below with images that show the sets or at least give a good example of the set being used. The portfolio tries to show the diverse looks that can be achieved in or around the studio.
