First shoot at Saracen House yesterday and I'm very impressed. As has been said great flexibility in the space, all the gear you could ever need and Andrew is a thoughtful and helpful host. As already mentioned he's there with any help when required but otherwise melts away to leave you to your thing.

Worked at Saracen House and with Andrew a few times now. Absolutely love modelling there it's so friendly comfortable and relaxed. Photos Andrew and myself have created are amazing. Also he's not a bad tea maker either!
Highly recommended place and photographer to work with :)

Sometimes when you go back to a studio years later it can be a disappointment, but when I went back to my old favourite studio, Saracen House, at the weekend I was in for a pleasant surprise. The studio is still spotlessly clean and decorated to a high standard but now with even more flexibility over studio spaces, sets and lighting. Some things never changes though, like Andrew's excellent hospitality, his willingness to offer advice when needed and his ability to 'disappear' discretely as soon as you have got into your stride. I would recommend Saracen House Studio for all levels of photographer and model from beginners to professional.

Even though ive worked at saracen house loads in the past 3 years, I had my first studio day at Saracen House last thursday which was a sell out thanks to both mine and andrews efforts. The studio is always warm and cosy with plenty of coffee to hand. I love the fact andrew is so on the ball with everything and is always there to lend a hand. He's so professional and a total gent

Couldn't recommend the studio enough
