Arch Photo Studio

Affordable Studio Hire In Camberwell

Welcome to Arch Photo Studio, an adaptable photographic studio located in a railway arch off Camberwell Road in south London. We’re about a mile south of Elephant & Castle. A 7m x 4m space has been set up for photography and videography, running workshops or temporary exhibitions.

Our aim is to provide a basic affordable south London studio hire space for photographers, creatives, small business owners to shoot still / video with their own cameras & lighting kits. We also have flash and continuous lighting that is included in the rental price.

Arch Photo Studio Layout

The photography studio is only suitable for strobe or continuous light work as there is no natural light. Overhead strip lights are LED’s so there is no flickering during video work if you leave them on. This is my own studio which I’m slowly kitting out. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles a fully-fledged London photography studio might have but I don’t charge the same rates as the bigger studio. I’m also on hand to give you a hand if required.

Backdrops & Builds

There is a white MDF stage and back wall that objects can be attached to. We have white backdrop paper as well platinum/charcoal grey options available as standard. Tabletop supports and sheet materials for smaller product photography setups. Arch Photo Studio is also a workshop so we have a range of tools and equipment that can be used for set building. Call for details on how we can help you with your photography studio hire London.


  • For video work we have 3 x GVM LED units and a Godox SL60W LED spotlight with a Bowens mount that can take the Octobox, Beauty Dish or Reflector modifiers.
  • Please note the studio isn’t soundproofed and its a railway arch so there is train noise on a regular basis. It’s not suitable for shooting long sequences.

Still Photography
