Equipment & Facilities

  • Lighting

    Blackgate loft is a Natural Light Studio, which means with the correct settings on your camera you can take the perfect quality picture anywhere.
    We also have 2 Godox 400W high speed Gemini strobes with Canon wireless triggers (Nikon coming soon), 1 AD360 portable flash and numerous modifiers and relectors.

  • Backgrounds

    Blackgate Loft was an old store, so we have textures from old stone to “rustically” rendered, timber and plaster.
    At present we have 6 hand painted backdrops with more to come. Also there is natural canvas and a white 3m wide seamless.

We offer a free for all kitchen with real coffee and numerous teas and bottled water. Biscuits, snacks, energy bars, fruit and of course chocolate can be found in the fridge.

There is a comfortable dressing room with en-suite with plenty of natural light for hair & makeup.
