The studio space is 6.6m x 6.5m (22′ x 21.7′) — double-height space — 42.9m&³2; (476.7ft&³2;) (the premises are significantly larger).
The interior can occasionally look like this:
In use, it’s more likely to look like this:
The boom stand is safely capable of mounting a flash head (and all but the heaviest of modifiers) at 2.7m/9ft.
Both the Broncolor RFS and Bowens Pulsar radio triggers are compatible with standard hotshoes — we have an adapter for older Sony/Minolta gear. PC sync cables are also available (and the flash heads also have photo slave triggers).
We have a pair of Arri Junior Fresnel lights with barn doors (one 150W and one 300W).
Natural light is available from eastwards facing french doors and lots of windows … subject to available daylight in Scotland.
2.7m seamless roll paper is generally available in charcoal and black. There is a small selection of coloured paper. There is no infinity curve — that style of portraiture isn’t part of our business model. The minimum drop for the paper rolls approximately 2.5m.
3m white and grey vinyl rolls are hung on a second wall with a minimum of a 3m drop.
The moveable wall is a 2.4m x 2.4m panel — black wall paper on one side and cream on the other:
There are three 3m tall self-standing black/white bookends (v-flats) and an assortment of fold-out reflectors.
The studio has a small dressing room with clothes rail, mirror, etc..
A member of staff is always on hand to give minimal assistance and answer questions (we would rather give you some assistance than risk that you damage the equipment or injure yourself). If you want a working assistant for your shoot or some tuition we can offer that too.
