Studio hire in Leeds for £175 a day with lights; bring your own background or hire one

Hire the studio with the ‘green screen’ free standing frame including lights for £235

The most popular hire period is for a full day studio hire with the
lights, photography flash or video daylight fluorescent lights, included in the hire fee. Video or photography we have the right lights for your shoot.

The studio is 1000 sq ft, see a plan click here, with the width of the white shooting area for cut-outs being 20ft (6m) wide & 10ft (3m) high, with the overall length of the studio being 35ft (10m). Elinchrom lighting equipment is all set up and ready to shoot for your photo shoots. This is with the flash lights being ceiling hung so there are no nasty lights stands to trip over, and with soft boxes directly overhead and one ‘front facing’ on an adjustable swinging arm to position it just right for you, for that clean soft lighting to keep the area totally white for your shots. The floor and corner joins are curved so you are effectively shooing in a white cove area. Otherwise known as ‘a CYC’, or ‘a COVE,  or even an ‘infinity background’.


FYI: ‘Cyc‘ is an abbreviated term for cyclorama, also referred to as a cyclorama wall or cyc wall. You can define a cyclorama as “a curved wall used as a background of a stage set to suggest unlimited space.” In a cyc studio, all corners are seamless. This is referred to within the video and photography industry as an “infinity background”.

To check the costs of hiring the studio click here. For green screen shooting, and for daylight shooting in the white zone (especially great for video), we have  set up six banks of twin 5ft fluorescent tubes, daylight balanced, for that clean daylight feel. Complimented by 4x new lights; each with 6 daylight fluorescent tubes, and again ceiling mounted. But with the ability to be lowered, or brought down to floor level on stands provided.
