Studio Hire

Anyone know a good place to start to either rent or buy just little one room buildings for photography? I have looked at actually studios but they come kitted and cost like 150 a day which is ridiculous, I just want a nice sized empty room! Any advice would be great?

Might be worth trying an advert in your local rag?

Local village halls are fab, They are cheap, Large, Have a loo, Some have catering facilities, Though you need to bring your own tea and milk etc......Smile

Oh! Yeah! Some of them have electickery too.....Wink

Booking them for mid week days can be cheaper as there is not a lot doing........Kinda depends how deep into the sticks you go.....Smile

I use a local village hall for when I do studio work.
Cheap and lots of space.

Agree that a village hall is a great idea but you need your own equipment which will cost a considerable amount.
By the way, 150 a day for a kitted studio is not ridiculously expensive.

I do agree with Ian.... All the above places including a village hall require all the necessary equipments for a shoot which will cost you around 175 to 250.... And if you are looking for a studio hire than 150 per day is not a bad deal.....

One would assume that the OP has his own equipment...

Sorry guys been in hospital. What's an OP? If it's something photographer like I assumed then yes I have the equipment needed. I just need space as it's much cheaper! I was thinking maybe 150-200 a month! Just one crappy room lol.

Hi Peter,

Sorry - I miss-read your original post.
Depending where you live then this sort of space will vary in price considerably. I have 400 square feet of studio space which is great for me and doesn't cost too much. For the price you want to pay then these places usually go very quickly. Not sure I can offer any advice on how to find these spaces. A bit of leg work and asking around the local area might be the best bet?
Cheers, Ian.

Yeah I have started asking colleges and things like that Ian, I have no real idea where to start so college was one idea my mate come up with! I have scoured some websites etc so fingers crossed really!
