We can assist in the daily management of your shoot, providing lunches, transport and accommodation from some fantastic suppliers in the Ribble Valley.

Art Direction

We can provide creative direction from concept to finished piece with expert project management throughout the entire shoot, keeping budgets in line and the finished pieces bang on brand.

Lighting and Equipment Hire

We can source equipment for you arranging delivery and collection as our offices are fully manned during business hours. Out-of-hours delivery is available too at request.


Detailed here are our 2017 rental prices. The studio is hired on a ‘space to rent’ basis. It will be clean and empty at the start of the booking and needs to be clean and empty when leaving, including any waste/packaging material etc. A skip can be arranged if needed
(we can advise on size and cost). No equipment or props are included although some lighting may be available to hire if required.

The toilet, shower room and kitchen are included in the hire cost (shared by Workhouse staff). If the Green Room isn’t booked with the studio it will be in use by Workhouse.
