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

DIRECTIONS AND LOCATION:
- Nearest railway stations (models and photographers can be collected if someone is available - timetable search):
- Goring-by-Sea (five minutes by car, walkable on a fine day in twenty-five minutes, and also served by the 700 bus) or Angmering (eight minutes by car, taxi rank) both on the South Coast line - direct services to London Victoria, Clapham Junction, East Croydon, Gatwick Airport, Haywards Heath, Brighton, Chichester, Havant, Portsmouth, Fareham and Southampton;
- Arundel on the Arun Valley line (fifteen minutes by car, taxi rank) - direct services to London Victoria, Clapham Junction, East Croydon, Gatwick Airport, Crawley, Horsham, Pulborough, Bognor Regis, Chichester, Havant, Portsmouth, Fareham and Southampton;
- Less than an hour from the M25 / A24 junction (Leatherhead) and from the M27 / M3 junction (Southampton airport);
- On the 700 bus route (Langbury Lane / Littlehampton Road stop - four minute walk) - express service Portsmouth to Brighton.
- Closest: Highdown House, Ferring - CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR REFURBISHMENT - half a mile east - (highly recommended hotel, but eat 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);
- Short drive: Premier Inn, Roundstone Lane - one mile west - (best restaurant at the Spotted Cow half a mile to the north - Angmering station / 700 bus route / taxi office);
- Nearest hostel: YHA Littlehampton - four miles west - (Littlehampton station / 700 bus route / taxi office);
- Luxury: Hilton Avisford Park - six miles north-west (car required, or taxi from nearest railway station which is Barnham Junction);
- Alternative hotels:
- Travelodge at 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 Hotel, (currently closed for refurbishment), 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.
