Studio Setup

The studio is set up to maximise the usage of space as best possible. 

the studio has multiple backdrops in one shooting direction and some more in a right angle.

All lights are situated on boom poles so to free up space on the floor without the need of light stands.


Included Lighting Assistant With Every Booking

The studio is newbie friendly with an experienced photographer on hand to deliver the lighting look you want without the need to alter the lights yourself. 

When they are not adjusting the lights they are there to help make your shoot more easy by assisting and even just making brews and keeping an eye on time.

No you cannot have the studio without the assistant.


Costs and money stuff

The Studio rate is £25 per hour with a minimum of a 2 hour booking. 

This includes the cost of the lighting engineer. 

This is to be paid via bank transfer before the shoot and an invoice and receipt will be provided.

This payment is non refundable unless the studio is unavailable last min due to illness or emergency.

If cancellations have more than 24 hours notice you can rebook a different date to shoot at no cost.

Cancellations shorter than 24 hours notice payment is lost as this could have been booked by someone else. 

Should your shoot overrun (it happens) this shall be at the studios discretion as to if another invoice is issued for the time. 20-30min here or there isnt much to worry about but 1h+ will be billed.

one of the lighting assistants jobs if you wish it to be is to keep you on target time wise.
