I've finally been able to leave Karl a reference after shooting with him on a one to one yesterday. Even though I've known Karl for years now, it was nice to finally get to shoot with him. I've always enjoyed working at Hugger, the photographers I've worked with here have all been full of praise for the studio. It's one of the best.

I had shoot yesterday at this studio, a first time experience for me in a studio but Carl was so helpful in everything concerning the shoot. He was very helpful too in the communication leading up to the shoot. The studio itself offers lots of possibilities regarding a shoot & with Carl there, is highly recommended.

Had a photoshoot a few weeks ago, he made me feel completely at ease and made the whole experience extremely enjoyable. The photoshoot gave me so much confidence and I would definately work with him again. Melissa

Had a great shoot on Friday at Karl's studio. It's a fantastic set up, very reasonably priced, and Karl is a great host. Hope to shoot again there soon.

Yesterday I had a truly awesome shoot at the studio with Karl, the day was filled with exciting and innovative challenges and was one of those shoots where you are just very much into the great prolific flow before realising time has disappeared before your eyes! Karl is a lovely admirable person who is full of productive stamina not to mention extremely knowledgeable with his work; yet he is without a doubt the man to shoot with for a great barrel of laughs too! He's very considerate toward models and his studio is brilliant - warm and comfortable with so many fab sets and facilities. Superb communications, superb photographer and a superb shoot. I definitely recommend him and look forward to working together again in the future. :) Thanks Karl, Dani-Elle'

This is one location where a photographer can spend a day shooting and have a different set up every hour without leaving the building. Karl is always up for a challenge and two heads are better then one when bouncing ideas or concepts off one another. The journey was worth it and I'm sure it won't the last visit to this studio.

I used Hugger studio to hold a 1-2-1 training session with a customer who wanted to use a local studio. Karl was very helpful and I was confident that he knew his stuff and would look after us on the day. We were not disappointed, he is friendly, knowable and looks after his customers and models a like. The studio has a good range of lighting, props and setups and caters for all tastes and styles. It's a busy studio which to me is always a good sign, thanks again for looking after us on the day. Cheers John

I shot at Hugger studios for the first time today and Karl was very accommodating and I got on well with him from the get go. I'd happily shoot here again and recommend the studio to others. :)

I have worked at Hugger studios a couple of times now. There are many wonderful sets and a brilliant variety of lighting equipment. Karl is so welcoming and goes well out of his way to help out his photographers offering lots of advise and help with equipment. I highly recommend the studio to anyone.
Added by Juliet_Moto - 2 May 2012
Hugger must be the best equipped studio's in the North, it's a great space, always warm and the sets constantly change. Karl is such a friendly person and nothing is too much trouble. His advise if you need it is plentiful as are the cups of tea.
