 I had some tuition with the Studio owner last year which was paced just right. Philip was very good at explaining things and showing how the lighting equipment worked. I have subsequently booked the studio again on a number of occasions ; Philip has been very helpful when I've had questions during my 'solo shoots'. It's a lovely studio to use. Philip is friendly and helpful in equal measures. I already have a couple more shoots lined up over the coming months. Highly recommended !

 I have used the studio on several occasions and can highly recommend it. It is very conveniently located (has parking) and help and advice is readily available if needed.

 Compact studio with all the gear you need. Although in the heart of Brighton you can park there. Phil was very helpful which was just as well as I haven't worked in a studio before. I got some excellent, well lit images thanks to Phil. David Gerrard

 Hired the studio last year. The studio is fairly compact although it is well equipped. Phil who runs the studio is a friendly, helpful person and as i hired VG when i was fairly new to studio photography, found his help to be of a great benefit. Recommend this studio to photographers of all standards and i will certainly use it again when shooting in the area.
