Many photographers prefer to hire studios for their interior photo shoots for the simple reason that they can be a great way of using good equipment for a quarter of the cost. A great studio should offer a good range of essential equipment with the hire, as well as the opportunity to hire extra lights, backdrops or stands, etc., on a flat rate basis. Bristol has a great range of studios available to meet all price points, whether you are searching for a blank canvas studio or something fancier for a commercial shoot.

In which Bristol districts can I find the best photo studios?

Around Cheltenham Rd and Broadmead, you can find other great studios for hire, from Flaneur Studios near the Old City to the White Space Studio on Kings Square Road. Heading north, check out great options in Redland and along Gloucester Road. Further afield, you can find excellent hire choices in Downend, Brislington, and Bedminster easily reached from the city.
What is the essential equipment a photo studio should have?
When hiring a photo studio, the goal is quite often to have access to space and equipment that you may not have the means or desire to invest in. For this reason, it is essential to search for a studio that offers precisely the set-up you will need for your planned shoot. If you understand exactly how your needs and their offer mesh, even a turn-key studio hire can be a seamless experience. Many studios will offer such things as a makeup area, studio flash heads, wireless flash triggers, and light stands with sandbags. Lighting is, of course, of extreme importance for your shoot, so also make sure that softboxes and other modifiers are available, or if you will need to hire them.
