Rivendell Studio is a family business run by Derek and Lysa Pether. Derek is the photographer with at least five years professional photographic experience, but numerous years before as an enthusiastic amateur! Lysa runs the studio, but loves to get involved with shoots as well, especially the baby ones as she is a good baby wrangler.
The studio is in an old converted farm building in Clanfield which is easily located close to the A3, north of Portsmouth.
It now consists of two studio areas, one bigger than the other. Studio One is for smaller shoots like babies, children, etc or single shoots. Studio Two is a much larger area and can accomodate larger shoots, especially groups and the possibility of even shooting larger objects such as motorbikes.
The studio is in a quiet location and quite private and is available for hire for photographers to use with their own models/ clients or using the Model Register is a good way of guaranteeing reliability as each model is selected on reliability, communication and experience.
The studio is equipped with Elinchrom lights which are fired using a wireless transmitter and various softboxes/ modifiers are provided. Various other pieces of equipment, accessories and props are being added over the next few months.
There are kitchen facilities with tea/ coffee, a makeup area/ changing room for models or clients. The walls are white with an optional black curtain to change it into a black backdrop (Studio One) and there are a selection of different paper backgrounds to choose from (Studio Two).
Studio hire is on an hourly rate, based on a minimum of two hours. Discounted Half day and Full day rates are also available. Please see the separate link for the Models Register to select your appropriate model and for details etc.
Plus please make sure you check out the events page for details of upcoming Workshops and Studio Days.
