Chilmington Studios Facilities For Hire
Chilmington Studios facilities are available for hire to both amateur & professional local photographers on a half or full day basis (4/8hrs).
The studio comes equipped with a range of (8) Bowens electronic flash heads of varying power between 125 & 500 watts, plus numerous light-modifiers including soft-boxes, beauty-dishes, brollies, barn-doors, honeycombs, snoots, gels & reflectors. We also have two professional LUPO DAYLED focusable continuous lights plus LED video lighting.
The shooting area is equipped with ‘wraparound’ drapes in both white & black to facilitate high-key & low-key lighting set-ups, plus green wraparound drapes for Chromakey shoots. A ‘Hi-Glide’ system enables lights to be positioned quickly & easily, whilst keeping the floor area mainly clear of lighting stands and a radio-trigger system provides cable-free shooting.
The studio itself is 5m wide and around 8m long, so there is plenty of room to shoot full-length images at long focal-lengths. There is a corner seating area and a kitchenette with tea & coffee-making facilities plus a ‘fridge with complimentary cold drinks. We also have a spacious changing/make-up room and the studio benefits from private off-road parking.
If you are not familiar with using studio lighting, free & friendly advice on how to set-up and get the best from the equipment is always available. Viewing of the studio facilities can be arranged by calling the resident photographer & studio manager Mark Matthews LMPA on 07517 911606
