Your search for a photo studio shouldn't take much time at all. With so many choices in Merchant City and Townhead, you have a range of great centrally located options for hire. Look at the studios and line up your expectations with their offers. Remember, the cheapest isn't always the best choice here. Professional quality equipment always comes with some investment. Check out the offers, and rest assured that your booking is in safe hands.
Many photo studios will require a minimum hire period. For some, this may be two hours. The rates usually range between £40 and £60 per hour, but some venues charge significantly more for evening bookings or overtime. In other studios, the minimum booking time may simply be half a day. Half-day hire in Glasgow will cost about £150 to £200 plus VAT. Full-day hire will average around £300. Weekend bookings may cost slightly more, depending on the venue. (All data from Tagvenue.)
You will find many of Glasgow's photo studios in Merchant City. Check out options such as KK Snaps around High Street or Shutterbug Photography on Goosedubbs St. Slightly to the south of this district in Bridgeton, you can find more options around Crownpoint Rd, including a studio for dog portraits. Over in Townhead, near the M8 and the Queens Road Rail Station, you can find other studio options. In outlying districts such as Finnieston or Springboig, or Dalmarnock, you can find other excellent choices that will likely benefit from easier accessibility.
When picking a photo studio, many photographers are looking for a space with the functionality that they may lack in their own studio. Often this could include accessories or equipment that they do not have and do not wish to purchase. That is why picking a photo studio on price point alone is not generally recommended. Finding a space at the right price and with the right equipment may require you to choose a more mid-range or higher offer. Before signing a contract, always check with the studio about the lighting in your desired space. Many studios have some source of natural light, such as windows or skylights. Others will often include some essential lighting set up, such as standing lamps. You should always ask if negative and positive reflection panels, c-stands or light modifiers are included in the offer as well. Also, check and see if any props, accessories or different backdrops will be included in the hire.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
