About Us

The refurbished Manchester studio includes an infinity cove which is curved to the floor and ceiling creating the perfect backdrop for all areas of image making and benefits from the recent addition of a 3 tier colorama system for clients requiring a specific coloured paper background. As an open plan space the studio is ideal for fashion, portraits, product and video shoots and can be used to hold all types of castings.

Also included with the studio is a professional make up area with four day light mirrors ideal for make-up training and commercial shoots where more than one make- up artist is required. A changing room area with iron and ironing board have been added to the studio floor along with a purpose made breakfast bar with kettle for convenience of tea breaks throughout the day.

Studio lighting is available for hire along with a number of items which are free with each booking, please see equipment page for more details.

A communal kitchen with microwave can be located on the first floor allowing self catering for those clients requiring refreshments throughout the day and also provides an extra quiet seating area.

The entrance to Budget Studio Hire is at ground floor level providing easy access for large props making this the perfect hire studio at the perfect price!
