Within the old merchant building on Cotton Street is a partially transparent roof so that the 176 sq meter studio space has plenty of diffused natural light.

The photographic zone has complete black-out curtains for precise lighting control and boasts an acoustically treating floating ceiling, perfect for capturing clean audio.

The huge 10m white cyclorama curve is complemented with a comprehensive range of professional photographic and film lighting. 

Suspended 6m from the floor is a Bowens HiGlide system, with sprung pantographs and guide rails so you can easily adapt the lighting to suit your shoot.


Private bar:
Vessel has a private bar for clients who book the studio out. So whether you want to relax post shoot with a crisp Rum & Ginger or liven your shoot up with some bubbly, you can now make use of the bar!

We have a small kitchen which is equipped with the essentials and has an eating bar area.

Backstage / greenroom:
The comfortable backstage room has soft furniture and subtle lighting. The room is perfect for costume changes, client meetings or simply as a video playback area.
