In the early part of 2014, it was decided to turn the old machine shop at A.A.Brown & Sons into a modern specialist photographic studio focusing on products, but for all types of photography. The build started by clearing out the area of machinery before setting about creating a room within a room. The idea was to build it completely dark and black to have perfect control of lighting whilst allowing room for a smaller machine shop and an entrance hall. In October of 2014, the 6 month build was completed and the studio became operational. We now have a state of the art room, with top quality lights, both continuous and flash, with the Lastolite Cubelite, interfit LED lights and Broncolor strobes. We are now looking forward to taking many brilliant photos in this stunning space and we hope you'll enjoy the photographic diary of the build below, its taken quite a while, but I'm very proud of the results.
Be sure to have a look through the thumbnails below for the diary of the build from start to finish.
