Ollie's Studio is located in a converted barn on a farm near Polegate, East Sussex. The studio is 333 square feet and fitted with 5 Elinchrom BRX studio flash units with remote triggering. The room measures 5.62 metres x 5.37 metres or 18' 5" x 17' 7", which includes a small model's changing cubicle. The oak beam (shown) is at a height of 2.03 metres or 6 ' 7' so does not really interfere with shooting but has a boxing punch bag suspended from it for use in fitness shots.
For backgrounds, you can choose between black or white Colourama paper background rolls (operated via a pulley system) or a black crease free velvet type material background which is great for absorbing stray light. There is also some available light from 2 Velux roof lights & also a small side window which is good for portraits if used with one of the white polyboards. There are a selection of soft boxes including a large Elinchrom Octobox, a snoot, a Tri Flector, black & white Polyboards and also a reversible silver & gold reflector with stand.
The flooring is oak laminate & there is a small partitioned off changing area for models complete with a Hollywood style illuminated mirror. There is a black faux leather chaise longue, a posing stool & various sizes of black posing tubs (with white covers if needed). There is a wind machine which is great for portrait images of long hair blowing in the wind.
Detailed instructions on how to get the studio can be emailed to you on request. The venue has on site parking or I can collect you from either Berwick or Polegate train stations if you are using public transport.
The studio is fitted with 24 hour CCTV surveillance for security & insurance purposes.
