Hi, I’m Rod the proud owner of the Fenland Studio, thank you for visiting my profile.
The Studio is situated just outside the village of Coates, about 8 miles East of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.

Yes the studio is in a barn, but come inside and you will enter a world where you can have drink in a pub bar or climb all over the bar if the mood takes you, you can play in a stable, or in a Victorian bedroom, you can even take pictures on Walton High Street and before you leave, you can have a bath in an early 1900’s hip bath in a period pump room.
I have just taken on more space where I am going to put a small stage and a pole complete with disco lighting, I will also be putting steel beans into the ceiling where a trapeze, swing, hoop or anything else can be suspended, so watch this space. I also have a warm changing room complete with mirrors and washing facilities.

The Studio isn’t huge in fact it is quite small compared to some, about 104 sq mtrs in all. The main lighting is from Bowens and Courtenay flash heads.
My rates are very reasonable even for amateur photographers.

Hire rates
£20 per hour
£65 for a half day (4 hours)
£90 for a full day (8 hours)

The sets....As an ex clock maker I am a perfectionist, (sometimes to my own detriment), when I build a set, if it doesn’t look real it’s not good enough, that of course benefits the photographer and model alike.

The Nags Head (or whatever you would like to call the pub).... Is an authentic country pub bar, complete with pumps, optics and all the other paraphernalia that you would expect to find in a pub and if the model doesn’t mind getting wet there are working soda siphons on the bar and a yard of ale glass.

The Stable....The stable is very rustic in design, complete with straw bales old beams, chains, ropes and a saddle, plus an old oil Tilley lamp, although it now has a bulb instead of a flame.

Victorian Bedroom....Complete with a bed, a working oil lamp (powered by electric now) a genuine Victorian fireplace and decorated in wallpaper indicative of the time. I also have a Chaise Longue that can replace the bed and the hip bath can be placed in front of the fire and be used there.

The Pump Room....Yes there is water in the pump and it can be used. The set is based around a 1920’s domestic wash house; it can be used on its own or in conjunction with the stable, there is also an early 1900’s hip bath that can be used in there (yes I do have hot water to put in it + plenty of bubbles & clean towels.

Walton High Street....An outdoor scene brought inside, a graffiti covered wall with a street name Walton High Street, it has scaffolding in front of it for a model to wrap her/himself around. For authenticity it has various builders items added cement bags, roof slates etc, plus dog ends and the odd discarded drink can. There is also a bulkhead lamp strapped to the scaffolding to create a night scene.

If you would like to view the place before you book, you would be most welcome.

Regards Rod

Rod has built perfection from the littlest detail to the larger elements each of the sets work perfectly, functioning from the 18th through to the 21st century and everything works from the ancient lantern, through the living room fire to the water pump and flowing water.

Like it says on some packet, just add a model for perfect results every time and yes even an amateur like me can obtain fabulous pictures straight out of the camera.

Rod himself is charm itself - tea and soft drinks and advice, but only if asked for, and availability of those props, like the guitar you might not have thought of and with a great can do "no problem approach" if you wanted to achieve something different than had been thought of. This studio is just so stimulating and rich in ideas.

My best recommendation is it is well worth me travelling a distance and I will be using again and hopefully again and again.

I held a studio weekend at Fenland studio, as I thought the studio looked great with different, interesting sets.

When I arrived it was better than I expected :) lovely studio with great sets that have clearly had time put into making them. Loads of different shooting options, comfortable well equipped studio that I had a great time shooting in.

Also shot with Rod twice, he really is a gentleman, such a lovely, caring photographer who you feel comfortable with all the time. Takes care of you well, and I enjoyed my weekend down in Peterborough.

Thanks and looking forward to next time
