I held a studio day at Barney's studio recently, he makes an excellent host and was kind enough to pick me up and drop me off at the train station and provided me with plenty of tea and biscuits throughout the day. Barney's attention to detail makes him an excellent photographer, his pre shoot and during shoot communications and direction were excellent, he has clear idea's about the things he wishes to shoot. He has a wonderful friendly and polite manner. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others and can't wait to see the results of our shoot.

First shoot at the Studio, Barney was a great help and very friendly. The Studio was full of areas to use and a large quantity of props to help with the shoot. Easy to locate, even using public transport. A very well run Studio, looking forward to a return visit, no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

I had a shoot here this morning with model LouiseBon - very impressed with the studio. Barney was very helpful and I appreciate him arriving to the studio early to turn on the heaters for us. Makes a great cuppa - would recommend this studio to any photographers or models :)

I very much enjoyed my studio day here last week; Barney is a lovely, courteous hospitable studio-owner who was very kind and helpful, both to me and to the photographers who booked me. I wouldn't hesitate to work there again, or to recommend the studio to others; what a nice place (and there were chocolate biscuits, hoorah!).

Studio day at Barneys Southdowns studio this weekend. It has come on so much still I first saw it in a rough construction stage about 5 months ago. This time I was let loose with all the lights and props to use. Barney is a very good studio owner. Gives help and advice when need, but gives out the way when not. Does make a good cuppa. The studio is brilliant and certainly has everything I could ever need, from the infidently curve, pure black backdrops, bedroom to living room sets. I will be back

I worked at South Downs yesterday at a Fiona Jane York studio day. The studio is set in a stunning and beautiful location. (A world apart from the usual industrial estates.) There is LOADS OF SPACE and a choice of many sets. Barney is really welcoming, friendly and helpful and will bend over backwards to assist you.

South Downs is also a lot cheaper to hire than most studios. A bargain! With other studios closing, I am so pleased to have found it.


NB. Do ask for directions- you will probably need them!

After working with Barney twice at the studio, yesterday i held my first model day there. It was a very successful day, everyone was pleased with the studio and its beautiful sorroundings, and Barney made sure everyone was well looked after throughout the day! Looking forward to arranging my next model day there! Highly recommended!

What a location! Whether you need to shoot indoors or out, Barney has the gear in the studio and the most beautiful countryside as well.

I made use of both during my recent visit and it would be a pleasure to shoot there again.

Southdowns has come on leaps and bounds since my first shoot there back in April. Barney has put a lot of work into making sure there is plenty of variety and versatility at this unusual venue. Don't expect plush toilets and changing facilities - or even mobile phone signal - but do expect good sets and surroundings!

Paid a visit to Barneys studio yesterday, it's in a rural setting and as I drove closer to it I could also see oportunties for location shooting nearby, for example some beautiful countryside; however I digress.

The studio is within a huge dry secure barn, a number of "sets" are pre dressed so there are several shoot areas to choose from, each offering very different backgrounds/backdrops.

A spacious infinity curve dominants the centre of the building and the more I looked the more potential I could see. An abundance of lights and a comprehensive selection of light shaping tools are at the photographers disposal.

The studio was busy yesterday, I met a few new faces and put a face to a usernames set of photos I remember looking at not that long ago. In closing one thing out of Barneys control, there appears to be no signal there for cellular phones, in actual fact not a big issue and certainly not a deal breaker for me. In fact, turning a seeming disadvantage into a major advantage, it will stop that element of model that seems permanently glued to their phone! :-)

I used Barney's studio today for a shoot with Diana Braun on her studio day there.

The studio is very spacious, with lots of different sets. Barney was on hand to give advice on how to make best of of the various studio lights.

The studio is very reasonably priced. Definitely recommended.

I had a great half day shoot at Barneys studio this weekend. Set in the beautiful South Downs it is a great place to spend the day. The Studio is in a converted barn and offers a large white infinity curve as well pre built sets.
Barney was very helpful, proffesional and friendly. I will certainly be going back again.

Southdown Studio offers so much for the photographer at an absolutly bargain price. The space to shoot in this studio is vast, and has a great range of sets. Barney is also a lovely, and very professional guy. I plan to be working at Southdown Studio on a reglular basis and look forward to arranging many different things with Barney.

Although the studio has a lot further to go in terms of development, the potential is clearly seen. It's a good size with scope for lots of different possibilities and is in a beautiful location in the South Downs.
