One day studio hire in Leeds shooting video or photography and it includes all lights for only £175 using your background
Our 1000 sq ft studio is based in Pudsey, Leeds West Yorkshire. It is situated between Leeds and Bradford, and approximately 10 minutes from the centre of each city. The studio unit is a light industrial unit that has been used for a few different businesses over the years. It started out as a timber yard with the studio area being where the wood was stored, and from that it changed into a double glazing door and window business.
In its final incarnation it became a haulage business, with the wagon sections parked to the left of the studio, where there now stands two detached houses, and the studio area being where the lorries were serviced. The big brown doors were added later by the home owner when it ceased being an industrial unit, and yes that is where we get the name from…Big Brown Doors Studio. The house and land was bought in 2009 by Ady and his wife Claire with the intention of Ady finally having his own studio. So when you arrive at the studio and you are told to park in front of the ‘big brown doors’; you can’t miss them!
One thing the owner Adrian, a professional photographer for 30 years has learnt is what he wants from a studio:
“A studio must have room to work in, a clean toilet and changing facilities, and good parking…yes we have all that. And then throw in a clean white zone for cut outs, overhead lighting so that there are no stands on the studio floor to trip up on – we all know what clients are like!
And perhaps the best thing about ,Big Brown Doors Studio Hire’ in Leeds is that it is a single studio so once that door shuts there is nobody to trouble you. There is a roller shutter door to get larger products or even cars into the studio…but let’s be realistic here, it won’t take a bus?
Overall this studio, even though it is mine, is the best equipped studio around. And that is because I have learnt from visiting and using studios around the country over the last few years, what works and what does not work. We have a ring flash, and a set of Hedler tungsten heads, S35 Fresnel spot light, a motorised slider for video…the list goes on and on. There is not a lot we don’t have available for hire in the studio.
