The studio hire rate is £20 per hour with a minimum of 2 hours per booking.

If you wish to hire the studio for half a day (4 hours) the rate is discounted to £70 and a full day rate (8 hours) is £140.

At the moment the studio will only be available at weekends and evenings and the booking will only be valid when the booking fee has been paid in full, at time of booking. Availability is dependent on demand and bookings already made.



Cancellation of a booking less than 72 hours before the booked time, will result in a refund minus 50%. Cancellation of booking more than 72 hours before the booked time will have a full refund. Cancellation on the day of the booking will result in no refund. This is to allow for the lost revenue of a short notice cancellation when another photographer could have booked that space.



If a booked model from the Model Register fails to show up for your allotted time a 30% discount will be offered for the photographer to use for their next booking.

Models from the register who continually fail to show, are late or fail to keep up prompt and reliable communication, will be taken off the list.
