Currently seeking an alternative location to call home in the North of Derbyshire.
However, still supplying excellent studio facilitation and production services to anyone in need, with broadening international links I have a dedicated group of overseas studios available for all your stills and motion capture needs. I am sure to build a website soon to capture a larger market reach if anyone is available to help me with it.
The initial studios were built out of a neglected building in the badlands of Salford and Manchester. The studios served to supply excellent service and well equipped commercial studio hire offering c.5000sq ft over two floors. It offered an independent or combined space scenario with excellent in house production, catering, lighting and camera equipment hire for both stills and motion capture. With over twenty years of experience in Film, Broadcast and Photography, no job was too big, or too small.
The studios were also treated as a “test centre” for graduate students and start up freelancing photographers. Quite quickly developing into an environment that challenged their abilities and expanded on their knowledge, skills and attitude toward cultivating their own businesses. The growing importance of networking into full time employment with visiting commercial clients was also a key operation in the monthly events in the studio.
Some of the highlights during the formative years have been working with Hasselblad, PhaseOne, Canon, Leica, Arri and Sony; Sky Atlantic, Warner Bros, Pinewood Studios, BBC, ITV, CaxiaForum, Film Four, Team GB Paralympics and Olympics London 2012, BFI, Aston Martin and Jaguar Land Rover. Not forgetting the 100’s of internationally acclaimed photographers and film makers all benefiting from the personal touch, the professionalism, security and anonymity that so many commercial clients require these days.
This studio experiment cultivated the city of Manchester as a destination for commercial photography within a global arena, so much more than the historical catalogue sites and singularities. Variety and a well connected network of services and providers offered inspiration and paved the way for an increase in medium and small commercial studios to open up in the region since 2015, synthesising the style and excellence in service the studio and I worked hard to uphold.
It would be difficult to find a studio in Manchester these days, or in a number of other cities, without one of the Oxblood Chesterfield Sofas or the offer of a full production service, a coffee, a croissant and a smile to all clients that Slaughterhouse Studios became known and respected for.
