The Studio is fully equipped with lighting, backgrounds, cameras and tripods. The Digital Photo Studio has digital SLR cameras available for students to use within the studio, although students are welcome to use their own cameras if they prefer. To reserve a place in the Photo Studio, please contact Sue Barr on 020 7887 4080 (extension 4080 from inside the AA). Studio reservations are held for 15 minutes, after which they will be available to other students.

Loan of Photographic Equipment

Due to the continuous late return of photographic equipment, the Photo Studio has now introduced a fine system to encourage photographic equipment to be returned on time. Students are now required to pay a deposit of £50 in advance of equipment loans from the Photo Studio. This deposit is payable via the Accounts department and will be refunded at the end of the academic year, providing all equipment has been returned on time throughout the year. Any overdue equipment will incur a £5 per day fine which will be deducted from the student's £50 deposit (unless the student has contacted the Photo Studio to extend the equipment loan). If the photographic equipment is returned more than ten days late, another deposit of £50 will be required in advance of future photographic equipment loans.

Sue Barr manages the Digital Photo Studio from 10:00–18:00 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Student Assistants manage the Studio at all other times.
