Photo Studios in Manchester FAQ

How much does it cost to rent a photo studio in Manchester?

Many studios in Manchester charge rates for longer time spans and for many a minimum rental time of 2hrs are required. Despite these requirements, renting a studio space is still within everyone's budget and you can be sure to find an option that will offer exceptional service and an attractive rate.

Before booking a studio it is worth taking into consideration that weekend hires are usually more expensive.

What is the essential equipment a photo studio should have?

To ensure the success of your session, enquire beforehand about the equipment that is available onsite. Most professional studios offer professional-grade lighting and softboxes as well as a large number of backgrounds to suit your needs. Inquire about the colour options and size of the backgrounds, this is crucial because depending on the number of people present in the frame larger backgrounds may be required. Many studios will also possess a number of props to liven up your shoot, but feel free to bring your own to create the look you desire. As with any collaborative endeavour be sure to communicate your vision clearly so that the space can be prepared and the venue team can offer the assistance you need.
