I have enjoyed access to a studio for many years, I was lucky to have had one in the grounds of my old house in Wimpstone till I moved in 2007, then it was somewhat 'interesting' with moves to Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, London and Spain. Then back to Stratford on Avon! In 2013 I helped set up a studio near Stratford and until the owner sold and moved away in 2019 it was a great base and I was able to shoot most studio portraits and product shots there.
As change happens, I managed to work from a home base with a great production facility and use hire studios, however I did miss a studio, a place I can easily set up, have kit on site and feel it is my creative space. I still shoot most of my work on location, however when a suitable location recently became available I jumped at the opportunity to have a dedicated studio.
So now May 2023, I have a studio base in the North Cotswolds, its only 5 miles from home so a bike ride away, and it is already making life easier, shooting still life products and naturally sculpture!
I shall be able to shoot portraits and am planning more experimental work that I would be unable to afford at a hire studio at £500 a day!
Like everything that sounds to good to be true, here is a catch.
As it is in such an idyllic location not far from the world famous National Trust Hitcote Gardens , I shall not publish the address as it is strictly visit by appointment.
I have already had a few clients and friends visit and google does not give great directions, it sends everyone past the studio entrance, however, three words works and when anyone gets near I can talk them down as a seasoned air traffic controller.
I look forward to working in this space and hope to welcome many old clients and hopefully many new ones to this small but wonderfully located Cotswold photography studio.
