Photography & stop motion studio hire

Hackney, East London

Studio Hire East London

The Picturesmith photography studio is ideally suited for stills, packshot, stop motion and other video production. This is where we create our magic and would love to share this space with you.

We are just a short walk away from Broadway Market’s restaurants, bars and shops.

Our studio consists of a shooting area that can be separated into two stages and an art department for any other creative needs.

We work with the latest APA guidelines for shooting safely in our studio.

We run our studio in the most environmentally friendly way we know how. Our aim is to keep our carbon footprint as small as possible, which is why we use 100% renewable energy and are carbon offset by growing forests with Ecologi and Tree Nation, to ensure that your shoot is a green one.

And we donate 1% of our revenue to environmental charities around the world through our membership of 1% for the Planet.

Picturesmith have a great, well-equipped film studio. Ideal for animation, tabletop or packshot projects but with a flexible open space, can also accommodate larger productions.
The pristine studio has a very good selection of lights and grip gear that have served me well on many animated and live-action projects.
