I've shot in some studio's in my few years modeling, but Black barn is like Aladdin's Cave Spacious full of prop's I could seriously spend a whole day there shooting and never get bored. Nic Is polite professional and a great host. I think this is one of the most well equipped studios I've ever been in.
Thanks again great studio highly recommended
I worked at Nics, studio last month with Mark and i was so impressed! IT was warm and defo for me, he was friendly made the tea and helped Mark out when he needed to. I really look forward to hopefully doing a studio day there sometime soon
WOW WOW WOW
Nic very kindly got in touch with me so we could organise (the first of many) studio shoots
I will 100% be using the studio again - its got great sets, is very spacious and has some fab props and furniture
Nic himself could not be more helpful - he has a lot of experience and was able to assist very easily with photographers but did not interfere with shoots which is important for me.
He made me feel so relaxed and comfortable it felt like id used the studio a thousand times! Made sure i was warm, comfortable and well watered at all times!
He is so friendly, kind, polite and a fabulous studio owner.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nic and his studio
This was my third visit to Nic's studio, this time to do some training on lighting. It was a fantastic day and I've walked away with loads of knowledge after our session. Now all I have to do is remember enough to put it all into practice! Thanks Nic, it was a superb session.
Worked at nic's studio yesterday! Wow.... It's a clean, safe, tidy space for a model. Gives you space to change, and sets up quickly from each set. He is a welcoming guy anyway. But I'd work there time and time again. Fab professional studio! Excellent. Thanks Stacey x
I attended one of Nic's lighting days at his studio with two other photographers. Nic was very accommodating at piched the days learning to what we wanted to cover. Not only did we get to use his fantastic studio, but he had booked an amazing model Maja-stina for us to work with.
Cheers Nic, highly recommend to others......
I attended one of Nics' lighting training days at the weekend. I didn't know what to expect but I was so pleased I did one of Nics' courses as it was a very informal but a structured guide to lighting in a small group so you could ask questions and go back over things without fear of looking a fool. And with a talented and very patient model on set you got lots of chances to actually shoot each set-up and we even got time to shoot one-to-one with the model in Nics' final lighting set-up. It was a first class and very enjoyable five hours training. Highly recommended.
I recently attended a five hour tutorial organised by Nic at the Black Barn Studio. He exceeded my expectations at every level with a huge amounts of good humoured practical advice backed up with continual encouragment and helpful,constructive suggestions during the practical shoots.The time flew past and I left with a real feeling of achievement.
The studio is an Aladdins cave of interesting furniture,props and accessories which are bound to get the creative juices flowing!I am thoroughly looking forward to working there again.
Myself and the Ian Forbes (photographer) hired out Nic's studio for a full day shoot.
The studio is well equipped, lovely facilities, easy to find, Fantastic props, Nic was the perfect studio host :)
Well recommended to all models/photographers/stylists,
