The booking is strictly limited to the times you have booked. If you wish to pay to extend your time in the studio once you arrive you can do so as long as the studio is not already booked.


If you cancel 24hrs in advance then you can rebook your session for free, but the rescheduled date & time depends on when the studio is free and at my discretion. Any cancellations made on the day of the booking will not be refunded and is the responsibilty of the person hiring the studio.


The building is shared by several businesses so for reasons of health and safety and neighbourly consideration I ask anyone hiring the studio to keep photography to inside the studio.

Any mess made during the time of hire must be cleared up and the studio left as you found it clean and tidy. Sub-letting the room or using the room for any illegal activity is also prohibited.
