about the Studio

Please click on the items below for more information on our photography services

This is the most common type of shoot. All the band photos on our website and our flickr are taken off site (or on location), whether at pubs and clubs or at festivals, parties and anywhere else live music might take place.

For those after publicity shots, head shots and that sort of thing, or would like us to take photos of their sessions in studio, we have all the necessary lighting and backdrops (including greenscreen). Again all the studio shots on our website and our flickr were taken by us.

We decided to go with a single format for lenses and cameras, and opted to go the Canon route. Our arsenal includes:

  • Canon 5D mk IV
  • Canon 7D
  • Canon 70D
  • Canon EF 24mm 1.4L ii
  • Canon EF 35mm 1.2L ii
  • Canon EF 50mm 1.2L
  • Canon EF 85mm 1.4L
  • Canon EF 100mm 2.8L
  • and various other L-series lenses

We use the industry-standard Adobe suite to process our photos to ensure we give you the best shots possible. Of course, if you’d like all the original shots as well, they’re yours!

We also offer many other services for local musicians including recording, filming, live sound and live-streaming. Check out these links for more information.
