Feedback & Comments from Photographers & Models
Working in a studio opens up a whole new world in your
photography, but can be daunting for a beginner. During his
one-to-one starter course Paul taught me how to work a studio and
the extraordinary photographic opportunities it has to offer. On my
follow up session, solo, I applied what Iíd learned, while the most
beautiful woman in the world gently reminded me where I was going
wrong. I havenít met a single model at Paulís who hasnít been kind,
professional, patient and above all fun. Paul is always on hand,
either to offer a decent cup of coffee if you know exactly what
lighting you want and can set it up yourself, or you can turn up at
the studio with a set of wacky ideas and Paul wonít stop until
youíve got the pictures youíre after. With his help Iíve turned his
studio into, among other things, a Parisian garret and a 1960s
nightclub. The studio is clean and comfortable, the equipment is top
of the range, and thereís enough of it and sufficient props to
achieve pretty much any effect. Great music selection too. Doing
that course completely rejuvenated my interest in photography - I am
now a regular.
I would recommend Pauls's Studio 100% to anyone like myself, has
a keen interest in Photography but needs a helping hand to get
started in Studio work. As well as the studio having all the
facilities you could ask for, Paul is extremely helpful and takes
time to make sure that everything you need is in place.
I enjoyed his 'try it and see' approach and he balances a hands-on
practical approach to understanding lighting with sufficient
technical info to give you confidence for the future.
All in all a great time and I'll be back for more.
Regarding the studio, I was very impressed. Good equipment and a
good layout. I think that you personally made a big difference. You
have been very helpful right from the first enquiry. Nice lot of
props to hand. I would like to use your facilities again and
wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to my colleagues and friends.
I have worked at Paulís Studio for the past 2 years and Iíve got
nothing but praise for him and the studio. Itís always clean, warm (or
cold if we are having a heat wave!) and there is a lot of equipment to
choose from. Not only is the studio first-class but also Paulís
attitude to helping photographers with what they want to achieve. If
you are a complete novice or a pro - this is the best place to go.
"I have had some amazing photos taken here! Excellent lighting,
clean and versatile studio and Paul is very helpful about changing
lighting and sets for you which is very useful"
I have worked at Paul's studio on a fairly regular basis over the
last couple of years. Paul has always been most helpful and
accommodating and the studio is always very well presented and
versatile. This is much appreciated by both models and photographers
alike who enjoy working there and invariably return for subsequent
I have worked a couple of times at Paul's studio with himself and
other photographers. I have always been really impressed by Paulís
friendly, but also helpful manner towards other photographers and he
has always made me feel really welcome there. His studio has some
great sets there that are quick and easy to set up but look great and
I have had always been really happy with the pictures that have been
taken of me there. I would highly recommend it to anyone, its great
value for money and Paul provides a very good service.
I found the studio to be very comfortable to work in, the use of
space is well planned and the equipment and lighting are of good
quality. It is an easy space to take good pictures in. I will be
"The studio is a great environment to build and develop your
portfolio as it has been carefully created with a variety of
photographer and model's needs in mind. The pictures I have had taken
there have always been excellent and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend
using the studio to anyone in the area. Paul is a great person to run
such a studio and any model will feel happy working with him."
