One of the best spaces in London, Robbie was SO helpful throughout the shoot, the photos would have honestly been so much worse if we'd booked somewhere else. I will recommend him to anyone I speak to about hiring and will certainly use him again. The studio is big with every piece of equipment you could possibly need, great value for money.

No negatives

Robbie was super helpful on the day and was on hand throughout our entire shoot. No problem was too big or too small.

The studio space is amazing! It offers a lot of high quality equipment (lights, props etc.) and has a very great layout with a small styling & Makeup/hair area as well. Robbie is also extremely lovely and was happy to help throughout the shoot, wherever we had a request - Robbie was there. Extremely attentive and the space itself is a great value for money. Will definitely book again & would highly recommend!!


Arch Photo Studio is a flexible studio space located in a 1200sq ft railway arch off Camberwell Road in south London. Approx 800sq ft of the arch space has been set up for photography and videography. When normal times return it will also be suitable for running practical workshops and events.

My aim is to provide an affordable south London photo studio hire space for photographers, creatives, and small business owners who lack their own lighting kit. We have flash and continuous lighting that is included in the rental price, they just need a camera / their own photographer. Basically, it's a space to be creative set up by a photographer.
