Situated just off the town centre in my home town of Scarborough, on the North Yorkshire Coast. The studio has been completely renovated with product photography in mind. It's now an inviting space of around 5 x 5m suitable for small items for a variety of arts and crafts, up to medium sized items of furniture.
There are many different surfaces and backdrops that I use, including a 2.2m wide paper roll system, which can be used as a background only, or as a complete 'sweep' for cutouts and packshot photography, where a single colour 'all-around' the product is required.
The building, originally a Coaching House from the 18th Century, has these wonderful alcove doors where photographic equipment, small props and clients items are stored. If you're ever in the area please feel free to pop in, the kettle is usually on as I am a tea lover!
The space enables me to produce high quality imagery, more efficiently than before, with the added benefit of being able to use the room as a lifestyle studio in itself. It has had a new floor fitted, and the walls have been painted in a soft subtle grey.
Before clients work is ready to be shot, it is stored securely alongside surfaces, and larger props and furniture, in my storeroom next door.
