What can I say I turned to Gemma at a moments notice and fortunately she was able to accommodate us after our last venue cancelled at very short notice. I am so glad I have used this studio as although I dont shoot a lot in a studio I will not go anywhere else in future. What a lovely friendly lady with a realistic point of view. You can tell the place was run by a woman it was spotless. A real must use studio and reasonable prices!

The studio is large, clean and well equipped.

Gemma is an excellent photographer herself and her advice, if required, is very helpful both to me as a photographer and to the model. She really understands photography.

I am very happy to recommend the studio.

My second visit to Kent Photo Studio reaped the sort of rewards I had only dreamt about! I really enjoy working here in this wonderfully clean and spacious environment. How spacious? I can use my 85mm lens (on a crop sensor) and get a full length shot! No need to worry about fall-off as the lights are powerful and plentiful. The studio is so much more than a room with lights – only an experienced photographer would think to have the power sockets installed above head height – so no trailing wires!

Gemma has a kind and helpful nature and I could’ve spoken with her all evening, but thankfully she is aware that this is your studio time and is keen to allow you to get the most from it, saving the chat until afterwards. To conclude, if you can manage to walk into this studio and not say ‘wow!’ then you’re clearly in the wrong building!

I had the opportunity to meet Gemma and make use of her studio as part of a shoot with Shine sparkle.

Lovely studio on a great level ground so perfect for anyone who may have access/physical ability issues, as it is wheelchair accessible. Reminds me of diesel punk studio in its layout, but on one level.

Looking forward to using this location again.

Another great shoot at Kent Photo Studio. Gemma was ever ready to make a cuppa for myself and Pandora on arrival, and was her usual bubbly self and helpful throughout. The shoot theme was adult fetish dressing and given that Gemma’s photo subjects are usually mothers and toddlers, I must admit that it is so delightful to find that Gemma was not at all phased at a half-naked lady nipping to and from the changing area – she even joined in a joke at one point about the perks of the job!

The studio was exactly as before, clean, tidy, well lit and ready for me to use straight out of the box. I really think Gemma has a great studio setting here and she will find me booking again, and again.

Lovely studio, Gemma was very accommodating and friendly upon arrival. The studio was very clean and tidy with great amenities. Although we personally didn’t use all of it the studio space was very adaptable and had various backdrops available. I would recommend this studio for a vast range of shoots.

After attending the studio last Thursday I was blown away to how absolutely beautiful it was. It is very versatile, a nice changing room it was very warm comforting surroundings.

This being only my second photo shoot and my first working very closely with one photographer. In my hole hole time there I felt completely at ease…

The studio owner Gemma Is such a lovely, bubbly very friendly, very talented person, her work is absolutely beautiful I learn’t a lot from being there and even enjoyed hearing some of there stories and experiences. She made me feel very comfortable.

I would be more than happy recommend her and her studio and if I ever had the opportunity to go back It would be an absolute pleasure.

This was the first time had used kent photo studio and wow! just incredible, the studio itself is amazing – the working space you have is very versatile with many back settings and types of flooring/ seating that can be used, and there is always tea provided Smile

The studio owner Gemma is such a lovely, talented lady. she made both myself and the photographer feel welcome and helped us unpack and get set up, ensured we had everything we needed for our shoot – if we did not she went out of her way to ensure we did have what we needed or would suggest another method of doing what we intended. Thank you Gemma! I would definitely recommend Kent photo studio and would love to visit myself again

Kent Photo Studio is quite a distance from me but its versatility, alongside its clean, considered design, makes the journey so worthwhile.

Upon arriving, having parked in the designated space directly outside, a warm welcome from the wonderful studio owner, Gemma, awaits. After being shown the facilities, Gemma ascertains what is needed for the given shoot and sets up the studio accordingly, making sure any accessories which may be needed, are available.

I wanted to shoot a particular style today and had been a bit unsure of the best way to accomplish it. I mentioned it to Gemma, in the hope of getting a couple of pointers – however, what followed, made my day! Gemma ran through the steps for me, even demonstrating the effect on my model! Her experience really shone through at this point. What a kind, thoughtful, and helpful gesture!

Thank you for today, Gemma, I always come away smiling

I love using this studio for my photography interests…. I have been to this studio three times now in the last few months and certainly will be returning time and time again.

Gemma maintains a tidy, clean white infinity box area, with additional areas to shoot different backgrounds which are all fabulously clear and easy to use. I am especially impressed by the lack of clutter in the studio compared with my previous experiences where the preparation for a shoot includes an obligatory half hour getting all the ‘props’ and other toot out of shot before I can begin.

…So this studio gets a full five star rating from me for being tidy, relaxed and having a helpful owner happy to make sure everything is working just fine.

Having just completed a huge refurbishment, I had the privilege of being one of the first to shoot here. In a nutshell, I love it! The studio owner, Gemma, is a lovely, helpful lady who really knows her stuff. The new decor has a light, airy feel throughout with a welcoming reception area and a well-equipped kitchen ensures you don’t go thirsty! Once you get into the actual studio, you have access to a vast array of lights and modifiers – there was even a small set of steps allowing me to get some elevation! Numerous coloured walls along with your usual white and black provides plenty of variety to your shots. Would I go back? Try and stop me! Thank you, Gemma, I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Absolutely perfect studio for me. I have found the place I will use most in the future. Gemma is a very friendly and helpful owner who is happy to give some tips and to help get you started with the equipment – recognising that some things don’t come naturally to a photographer not entirely familiar with some of the features. This studio is tidy, well organised and the shoot space is not overcrowded with props. Props can be brought in, there are an assortment of things available already and more than enough for the shoot with Rosamund.

Most definitely will put more work through this studio. Fair rates for a great location. Fairly easy to find – and Gemma will guide you for the last few metres!

Lovely host, makes a nice cuppa too!
