A totally professional set-up where I was able to travel light and hire all my kit from Smithfield Studios with ease. I wish more hire studios worked this way!

I have used Smithfield Studios on many occasions and I feel it is one of the best in the area. It’s always clean and tidy, and warm in winter and cool in summer. Couple this with quality lighting equipment and good support from Alwin, and you have a studio that encourages first-class images to be produced. I can say without doubt that all my best studio images have been shot here.

Whether you’re shooting video or photography, Smithfield Studios has everything you need. Complete with dressing room and access to kitchen facilities – It really is a great space! Alwin himself is all smiles and happy to help. He even helped carry equipment to and from our car!

The team at Smithfield Studios are dedicated and trustworthy. They are always keen to help and make sure you understand everything before hiring the studio. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and nothing was too much trouble. Looking forward to our next booking.

Hiring Smithfield Studios for a childrenswear fashion shoot was a joy. It is excellently equipped with high-end, professional equipment. It’s spacious and has many varied shoot areas. Alwin is always on-hand to help out and nothing is too much effort. Access is excellent, and a changing room and sofa area make it a super comfortable environment that’s ideal for clients.

Very pleased with Smithfield Studios – clean, comfortable, modern and well-equipped, with a great variety of settings and backgrounds. Parking was no problem for my weekend session – plenty of space right outside the studio. Alwin himself was very helpful and accommodating in setting up the booking and on my arrival at the studio. I’ll definitely be back for more sessions. Highly recommended.
