Does anyone use (or have used) LA Studio in Leeds?

Just looked at the website and there is a message saying

Thats All Folks!!!!!!

Thanks and Goodbye.

I was a regular on and off for a number of years, and I did not know Alan was finishing, although I cannot say I'm surprised.

Anyone know of the history?

I used to model at LA studios about 13 or 14 years ago. Loved the place! Alan who ran it was a really lovely man, so helpful. Hope he is ok. An news very much appreciated.

Yes, I texted Alan not long after posting this and apparently his lease had expired and was unable to find any suitable premises. There was no mention of any other problems.

shame I will really miss going there..

You'll have to visit epz's home town Alister. Worksop Studios is alive and kicking.

Oh what a shame. I loved that place. Had some really good times, really friendly and relaxed. Thanks for the info.x

I used to model there under the name 'Lara' - I wonder if any of you guys remember or even sessioned???

Just a thought...

It was a number of years ago i shot at LA Studios but one that had always stuck in my mind. Real shame that it has gone. If i remember right it had a dungeon style set.... Are there any other studios in Leeds or the surrounding area that have something similar?

Hi guys,

I was surfing the net, trying to find Allan or Lottie. I'm really upset that Allan has closed the studio. My dad spent at least 2 nights a week there from when I was about 17, I'm 40 this year!!

You may remember my dad, Philip Innes?? If any of you have any contact details for Allan or Lottie I would really appreciate it. I know Lottie moved to Barnsley but I haven't seen either of them since my dad died in 2006.

Thanks in advance.
