Ten days have now passed since our Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, announced that there would be certain measures taken by the Government and Police Forces to ease aspects of this nationwide lockdown that has gripped us for the past nine weeks.  People are now allowed to come into contact with other individuals, as long as the two metre social distancing measures can be adhered to, and certain jobs and industries have been advised that they should return to work where it is safe to do so.

Since then we have been in rigorous contact with our clients and location owners, looking at ways in which we can safely help get people’s businesses back up and running. We now have a wide variety of properties, including styled studios, houses and apartments, that are available and that comply with the government’s social distancing laws. If you are ready to get back to work and start shooting, we should be able to help you with any of your shooting requirements.

If you are in need of a studio for your next shoot but are struggling for inspiration then you have come to the right place as we, as always, have an incredible range of styled studios that are available and safe to shoot in right now.

The first studio we have to offer is the remarkably eye-catching Friendly Place. This large warehouse style shoot location is set over multiple floors, each offering a completely different aesthetic, with a whole host of quirky props and unusual backdrops, allowing for endless shooting opportunities. This purpose made shoot location has multiple set up areas which are perfect for social distancing and due to its versatility, has great scope for creating unique and striking imagery.

Staying in East London and with the quirky and offbeat aesthetic, Dalston Heights is our next styled studio that is safe and available to shoot in. Suitable for filming and photoshoots, this eclectic studio is spread over a vast amount of space making it an ideal spot for some socially distanced shooting. What’s more, the space is specifically designed for shoots with as many interesting and wacky props as you could imagine.

Up next we go to north London and the 2600 sq ft studio, Belt Craft. This ex-textile factory situated near Seven Sisters has been completely stripped back to its rawest elements with wooden flooring and exposed brickwork, offering you the chance to put your own spin on your shoot. The space oozes character due to its interesting props and furniture that are complemented by tons of natural light.

Our next location also hails from North London and is also an ex-textile factory, this time an ex-buckle factory. Again, similarly to Belt Craft, Buckle Factory has been stripped back to its rawest elements with original wooden panelling, exposed brickwork and concrete flooring adding to the space’s character. With large windows all around, the studio offers loads of natural light for your shooting needs.

Last but by no means least we give you The Lab. Perfectly suited for social distancing, this former tram depot has been beautifully restored into a completely open plan 2600 sq ft studio and is situated in the heart of East London. Standout features include wooden beams, stone flooring white brick feature walls. Furthermore, due to an array of skylights the studio benefits from tons of natural light that compliment the stripped back decor inside.
