I have worked with Graham (GE Photo) and Ashleigh (Make up at the Mansion) on multiple occasions - they as a team are complete professionals, considerate, friendly, fun to be around and hard working.

The new studio is fantastic, plenty of space and high ceilings so I can do crazy big poses. Several different sets, state of the art equipment, ceiling railed lights, natural light, exposed brickwork... what more could you want?

I'm excited to do lots of fun and productive shoots here
