I have used this studio several times over the last couple of years for a variety of shoots and have never been disappointed with both the equipment/props available and the help given by Brian. For me, it's worth the hours drive to use a great studio like this and I have no hesitation in recommending it to photographers and models alike.

I had a truly awesome shoot at the studio, the day was filled with exciting and innovative challenges and was one of those shoots where you are just very much into the great prolific flow before realising time has disappeared before your eyes!
Studio is brilliant - warm and comfortable with so many fab sets and facilities.
I definitely recommend.

Had my second shoot here on 3rd May with Elle Beth. We were able to get some great images out in the woods & by the lake, then in the studio. All the time supported by the owner, Brian. Really helpful as lookout, reflected holder, advisor, lighting expert, silk rigger and all round great bloke. The studio is well equipped with lights, hoop, performance silk, rope & swing, outfits, furniture, props, only the model, tog & camera needed. Really great place to shoot.

I have just done another 2 day Studio Days at The Cottage Studio in West Sussex last weekend after my previous one in April went so well.
Brian is very accomodating and has everything you need and more in his studio. Infinity Curve/Black backdrop for art-nude, fashion shots. A bed for glamour/lingerie shots, silks, hoop and trapezes for performers or those daring to have a go...they make excellent pictures. He has a balustrade and pillar which look brilliant for fashion or art nude images. The natural light window upstairs is beautiful for some soft lingerie/headshots.
He has a clean toilet and the dressing room is amazing, lovely mirror area with lights so you can see what you are doing, a sink and wash area if needed, a variety of toiletries, hair spray and make-up if needed plus props and a huge wardrobe of clothes and accessories. There is nothing more you could want at a Studio than at The Cottage. I love working there and looking forward to another in the future :)
Thank You, Tillie x
