Professional commercial black-out studio covering commercial product photography, fashion, dance, fitness, tourism, motor cycles, food, interior design accessories, and erotic-artistic stills and video.  The proprietor is the highest rated full-time European commercial photographer on the world's largest freelancing website.

Published in over forty countries on five continents. 

Preferred supplier for businesses in the digital advertising, motor cycle, insurance, catering, tourism, interior design, fashion, finance and construction industries.

All models working commercially on the studio who have not completed full time compulsory education are licensed by the relevant authority.  The licence is free and the studio is happy to arrange licences for its clients at a £20 documentation fee.  All models under 18 are chaperoned.

The model's perception: "Barney's studio is fantastic.  By the small space you wouldn't think much of it.  But think again!!!  Barney has been very clever and created so much in one space.  It is a fabulous use of the location with changing room, props, backgrounds, lighting galore."  Jessica Taylor

The photographers' perception: "I have seen Barney improve his studio over the years and it is just getting better and better ... Motorised back drops and light stands on wheels made everything so easy to use ... the fact that he has a calendar on his page which shows the vacant days is a complete bonus. All the equipment and props you could ever need. Highly recommended.Jake41

  • On the 700 bus route (Langbury Lane / Littlehampton Road stop - four minute walk) - express service Portsmouth to Brighton.


  • Closest: Highdown, Ferring - half a mile east - (highly recommended hotel, but very pricey.  Do consider eating out at the Sussex Yeoman / Hungry Horse for the best reasonably priced local menu) - Goring-by-Sea station / 700 bus route / studio within walking distance);

  • Luxury: Hilton Avisford Park - six miles north-west (car required, or taxi from nearest railway station which is Barnham Junction);
  • Alternative hotels:
    • Comfort Innat Crossbush (car required, or taxi from Arundel station)
    • Mulberry Hotel (Goring-by-Sea station) and the George V Hotel (Durrington station) - both on 700 bus route;
  • Models if using public transport please do not book hotels in Central Worthing the night before a shoot, and if using your car avoid staying anywhere east of Worthing (e.g. Brighton) due to major travel bottlenecks on the A27 approaching Worthing from the east.  Ideally please use either the Highdown or Premier Inn mentioned above if you have an early start. 
  • IMPORTANT: there are major roadworks for five miles west of the studio on the A259 from Felpham to Ferring until mid 2020!!! If travelling from Hampshire or beyond, to avoid these road works stay on the A27 east towards Worthing from Chichester past Arundel and leave at the A280 junction, but allow at least fifteen minutes to get through Arundel at peak times.  Do not go via Bognor Regis.

Advice on lighting set-up, plus health & safety and security when you start all included in hire charges if requested

NO parking charges!
