Before every booking, the model prep area will be wiped down, as well as everything the model would need to touch apart from what they have brought with them. Internal doors will be kept open and the studio will be well ventilated. Your host and photographer will practice Social Distancing. Your host will move any props, adjust lighting, move stuff around as required, and keep out of the way when not needed. Masks and gloves are available if required. The bathroom will be wiped down between shoots, including doors, locks, taps, handles, levers and seats. We have been open when Government restrictions allowed. Covid-free to date - otherwise we wouldn't be opening again!
WE EXPECT visitors to exercise reasonable precautions. Do NOT come to the studio if you are feeling unwell or have any Covid symptoms, or have been in contact with people with those symptoms. We would rather you cancel (at whatever notice - no negative reference) if there is any doubt. Although we do not envisage taking your temperature (it's not our job) an infra-red (non-contact) thermometer can be made available upon request.
Studio available 24/7 (but please see below)
Hire Rates currently £17.50 per hour to cover higher insurance, electricity and heating costs. We'll still do a discount for a 4 hour booking at £60. All day bookings will be £120. We will revise this price policy in early Summer!
The Studio address is Unit 6, Upper Mills Industrial Estate, Bristol Road, Stonehouse, GL10 2BJ. Please note that access at weekends/evenings is via Downton Road.
We also host studio days for models and we can provide starter portfolios or portfolio updates for a reasonable fee. We are not rip off merchants and will always try our best to give you what you need, either end of the camera.
Bookings will only be confirmed on exchange of telephone numbers. Deposits are not required but no-shows are not tolerated!!
By train from Swindon, or the North, your best station is Stonehouse (only half a mile from the studio). If you are coming from Bristol, the best station is Cam and Dursley. It's another 15 minutes by car to the studio but saves about an hour on the train.
By car. Leave the M5 at Junction 13 and head towards Stroud. Keep going straight on over all the roundabouts until you get to the first set of proper traffic lights. Turn right into Downton Road. Over the bridge and down the hill, when the road bears right turn left into Upper Mills Industrial Estate. The studio is around the back of the second building on the left. (Please see album of maps and directions).
Tim or Glenn will be happy to host you and provide assistance with lighting if required...or just stay out of the way. Complimentary tea/coffee will be provided and we have quite a few accessories and outfits that you are welcome to use.
Weekends are generally available unless there is a prior booking.
