Our studio is your backdrop. Browse through our unique backgrounds available in the Hayloft up close in our photographer’s lookbook.
The Hayloft is a location offering a wealth of character outside the traditional studio setting. When the building was up-cycled six years ago, Kt left the original industrial walls and ceiling exposed to give a unique atmosphere. There are also six south-facing windows in this room. This offers stunning natural light, often casting interesting shadows around the room as a source of inspiration for many creatives. Many photographers choose this space to work solely with our natural light instead of studio lighting.
Our studio is a popular location for photographers and filmmakers looking for an inspiring canvas for their projects. The rustic aesthetic of the Hayloft has been used in a variety of shoots such as fashion collections, music videos, portraits and product photography. We also offer a few wooden props such as a ladder and an easel as optional set dressing.
White brick wall
This backdrop highlights the original industrial style of the studio. The brickwork has been left in its original form to give a textured background to elevate your image beyond the conventional blank white backdrop. The authentic stable doors on either side of the back wall frame your shot beautifully, and they can be pushed back out of view if they are not needed.
On the opposite side of the room, there is a completely different appearance. The floorboard cladding offers a more modest style to your shot, and the wooden panels are flecked with subtle paint splatters to give an artistic effect. This backdrop has been very popular with filmmakers making instructional videos in the past but is also used for fashion photography.
Original ceiling – beams
The beams in the Hayloft evoke the style of an old, cosy barn, which is the style many photographers are looking for in their shoots. In the past, Copperdollar Studios has even had an aerialist hang off of these beams! The height varies across the room, from two metres at the beams’ lowest point to three metres at the highest. For basic lighting, this studio has several low hanging bulbs to continue the warehouse aesthetic.
In light of the government’s four-stage plan announced yesterday, we have a provisional studio re-opening date of Monday 17 May 2021. This is subject to change if the number of active Covid-19 cases has not deteriorated enough by this point.
In Step 3, it is suggested that indoor mixing will be permitted of no more than six. Copperdollar Studios will be following this rule if the data allows it. We will be looking to lift the restrictions to normal studio capacity by 21 June (if the data permits this).
We will start accepting bookings from 12 April. As always, if you have any questions please get in touch.
