The first issue of the Millwood Studio Magazine has been published this week and it features an article on studio lighting by yours truly.

I am very happy to support Jamie and Paul at Millwood as they are doing a fantastic job in launching their new studio business.  Many photography studios are having a tough time in attracting business and I really hope that Millwood Studio takes off and thrives.

The magazine will be distributed amongst the photographic community and you can read it online here.  It features photographer and model interviews, news for camera club members, information on the new Millwood Photography Group, the new studio hire rates and forthcoming studio events.

Newly-opened in Stalybridge, Greater Manchester, Millwood Photography Studio has risen from the remnants of a Victorian factory that has been very well restored and furnished with the latest photography equipment.  There is enough Bowens studio lighting to keep multiple groups of photographers occupied at the same time if required (all firing on separate wireless channels).

The studio is built on two floors and every inch of space can be utilised for photo opportunities.  Downstairs, the main feature is ‘the white room’ featuring a large expanse of white wall and infinity cove.  Walk through a door into the next room and you can choose between a barnyard set complete with the obligatory haystacks; a Mediterranean-style house set and a washroom set.  Upstairs, there is a bedroom set suitable for boudoir / glamour photography; a living room set with leather sofa and chairs;  a stone feature wall and colorama paper backdrops.  Lots to work with and well laid out.

The management team of Paul and Jamie are always hospitable and are on hand to help if needed, or happy to keep out of the way and let the experienced photographer get on with doing his / her own thing.

I have used several photo studios over the years and I have to say that Millwood is one of the best I’ve used.  I would recommend it to any photographer.
