Former 19th century hayloft in beautiful countryside. Located at the edge of Wilstone village near Tring in Hertfordshire. Ideal for portrait and small product photography.
It is the ground floor sooting area that is available for hire (as shown in photos below). There is a mezzanine level upstairs where I work on my computer, so although technically I will be in the same space, I will be out of sight and out of your way! You are welcome to leave bags / outfits upstairs so they are out of your way while shooting. You can also use the upstairs area to get changed if needed.
The ‘shooting’ wall is painted in a light brown / taupe coloured sand paint (so it has texture). The floor is brown wooden floorboard effect laminate. There is daylight from the large windows. I also have black out curtains at the windows. if you are using the window light but want privacy and to diffuse it I have sheer polyester chiffon fabric on curtain wire that can be quickly hung up at the windows.
This is dry hire so you would use your own equipment. If you would like to use my studio lights please enquire and I will hire them for a small extra fee. (I have 2 x Bowens 500 Gemini flash heads, 2 x 400 Bowens flash heads. I do not hire out cameras).
As part of the dry hire you are welcome to use at no extra charge:
