How do I arrange a booking or to arrange a studio tour? DO I NEED TO BE A PHOTOGRAPHER or cinematographer TO BOOK?

Shoot an email through to and please include as much detail as possible including which studio you need to book (it basically comes down to if you want to use our cyclorama or not) and if you need any lighting or other equipment. It also helps us if you could give us a rough idea of the size of your crew or number of people you are expecting during your studio hire.

You don’t have to be a photographer to book our studio. Even though the space is primarily suited for photography and video, we are regularly booked for other events such as product launches and workshops.

When can I book the studio?

LUMI Studio is open via appointment only and our general hours are 8am until late, seven days a week. In most cases we can be reasonably flexible with start and finish times (subject to hire rates) as long as respect is given to our neighbours with noise and parking.. If an excessively early start (before 8am) or late finish (after 9pm) is required we reserve the right to charge a small additional fee.

We ask that you allocate at least 15 minutes at the end of your studio hire to packing up and resetting the space.

Studio rules and guidelines

Very simple… please treat our studio as if it were your own. The studio needs to be returned to the condition you found it and any excessive rubbish should be removed to the bins out the front or taken away with you.

If any furniture or lighting is moved around please ensure they are put back where they were found. A wide range of cleaning products can be found on the shelves under the stairs at the rear of the studio.

Care should be taken with lighting to ensure nothing is tripped on or knocked over so we would prefer if you go with the whole ‘slow and steady’ theory as opposed to letting people run around.

Please do not water any of our plants as they are carefully managed. They especially don’t want to drink any of your leftover coffee.

Full T&C’s will be emailed through with an invoice to lock in your booking. By making payment for the invoice you acknowledge that you agree to these terms.
