Availability & Booking

Arch Photo Studio

A flexible photo studio hire space located in a 1200sq ft railway arch off Camberwell Road in south London. Approx 800sq ft of the arch space has been set up for photography and videography.

Our aim is to provide a large, central but affordable south London photo studio hire space for photographers, creatives, and small business owners. We have flash and continuous lighting that are included in the rental price.

We only charge for the paper if you insist on a pristine new section. Basically, it’s a photography space set up by a photographer for creative people. You just need to bring your own camera/photographer.

Photo Studio Floor Plan

This is my own studio and you are using my own kit I use for portrait and product photography. It’s not as plush as some of the larger London photography studios, but I don’t charge the same rates as them and everything is inclusive so no hidden extras. I’m also on hand to help if required for a small additional fee. You also have access to all the tools and props I’ve accumulated at no extra cost.


For still photography we have one Godox AD600 Pro, one AD400 Pro and three AD200 Pro flash units with Nikon, Canon, Fuji & Sony triggers. We have a range of light modifiers with Bowens mounts including softboxes, beauty dishes, snoots, fresnel spot, umbrellas, gobo projector, standard reflector with barn door and grids. See the full list below. Check out the BTS Gallery to see the lights and modifiers in action.


For video work we have 3 x White LED units, 2 x RGB LED Lights and 3 x 60W LED spotlights with a Bowens mount that can take all the modifiers listed below. Check out the Video Gallery to see the continuous lights in action.

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.
  • The photography studio is only suitable for strobe or continuous light work as there is no natural light.

Backdrops, Props & Set Builds

There is a white MDF stage and back wall that objects can be attached to. We have a small and growing selection of backdrop papers. White obviously, warm and cool mid greys, dark charcoal grey as standard, plus a range of colours including; pink, yellow, red, purple, beige and off white, various blues. Call for details.

Tabletop supports and sheet materials for smaller product photography setups are also available. Arch Photo Studio is also my 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 photo studio hire in London.

We also have a range of props and fabrics that can be used to create rooms. We have 4 poly board stands when combined with the black backdrops allow you to create intimate rooms where you can just light the subject as shown in the above image.
