The Loft Studio - Colchester

The Loft is a large well equipped photography studio located in Colchester Essex. Custom-built in a Victorian grain store next to the Colchester waterfront, the studio benefits from quirky features such as its exposed brick wall, windows for natural light photography, bare wooden floors, and high ceilings. We host photography and video shoots, training days and social events, and do our best to accommodate every requirement.

We’ve designed the space around the specific requirements of great photography, we have two drop down backdrops in the centre of the room, a kitchen, living room area and changing room. We take pride in making sure the studio is clean and tidy so everything will be ready for you to start shooting upon arrival. We also have an editing suite on the mezzanine, and more power sockets than you could wish for.

Assistance is available if needed or you can be left to do your own thing. 

The studio is run by photographer Dan Tidswell.

I have many years experience in shooting, setting up lights and equipment and organising events and workshops, here in the studio and across Europe.
