Photographers and models! 

This room can also be used as a photographic studio, changing room and shoot location - there are woods and open spaces nearby which are perfect for all sorts of creative shoots!

Although the studio is primarily set up as a sewing space, the tables can be moved around and there is a large plain white wall for use as a backdrop.

Ceilings are high enough for a wide range of photographic work and there is ample space for full length shots of models.

Good natural light comes from the large picture window.

Surrounding spaces for shooting include:

  • Wooded areas (laden with snowdrops in spring)
  • Industrial areas
  • Textured backdrops - wooden barns, gravel, mud
  • Pretty garden area with patio
  • North Leigh common close by
