About Me

Anyone looking to hire a studio in London - we have one available.

Our South East London studio is now up and running and available for hire from just £125 a day (Half days and hourly rates are available)

and I've just completed a new cove (not yet in the pictures)

Completed to very high specifications, our new studio has wonderful daylight, 16ft high ceilings, a polished concrete floor, well equipped styling room and free onsite parking.

Located on the banks of the Thames on the Woolwich / Charlton border in SE18 we are easily accessible from Central London by both car and public transport. We pride ourselves on providing a cost effective solution for people requiring a friendly and relaxing full length studio for shooting in.

The studio is full length and features:

The following kit is included in the rental:

Extras to hire include:

•    steamer, ironing board, iron and styling kit

I've shot the majority of my recent work in this studio and am happy to share the space with others.

Drop me a line if you're interested in seeing the space or to discuss any needs to might have. I'm always keen to help in any way possible and would be on site whilst you're shooting and always up for a chat!

If you would like to make a booking for the studio please do so via the Studio website or [email protected]

Thanks for calling by and looking at my studio & work, hope you like what you see.


Shooting with me

I'm really very keen to hear from London based stylists looking to shoot editorials & stories for publication. I've got access to amazing agency models, a studio to shoot in and avenues for publication. I just need someone to be providing me with the clothes for stories to shoot.

Drop me a line if you're interested, showing examples of your previous styling work.

Credit Notes

If you are model and are interested in shooting with me, I do offer model tests / portfolio shoots. The style is slightly different to the work you see here, as this is work that I produce during the week for clients.

If you are interested in finding out more about the services and shots that I offer you can see my model tests website
