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. Recommended.

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.

First time visit to Saracen House yesterday, had a great shoot with Jo Louise. The studio is excellent, really well equipped, and set up. Andrew is really friendly and helpful, looking forward to going there again.

Excellent studio. Clean, pleasant, spacious, with a very pleasant, homely vibe. Up there with the very best studios I have worked in. Possibly the best. Even the best studios have some drawbacks, but I cannot think of any for Saracen House. Andrew is a very pleasant, friendly helpful man and I immediately felt at ease in his company. His pre-shoot communication was fast and positive and far better than most. Whatever I asked for on the shoot was quickly delivered. A very popular studio and it deserves to be. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I've had many shoots at Saracen House, with various photographers, most recently yesterday - all have been hugely enjoyable! The studio is beautifully decorated with a variety of sets & backgrounds, tons of props & excellent lighting set ups. The temperature in the studio is perfect and the upstairs in particular is very cosy with a bed set & sofa with changeable covers. Andrew is a lovely friendly guy who is very welcoming and hospitable, offering tea & coffee throughout. He is always available to help with any lighting issues etc. Oh & I do love the sound system too! : ) I would definitely highly recommend Saracen House (which is my local studio) to any model or photographer and look forward to hopefully working there again soon! A big thank you : ) x

Had both my second ever studio shoot and second shoot at Saracen. Andrew is extremely helpful, professional and patient when it comes to having his studio used by inexperienced photographers. I will definitely be back again.

I had a photoshoot here on thursday evening, Andrew was the perfect host, offering refreshments and a warm welcome. The dressing room is large and well lit, with gowns available. Felt very safe and secure working there, would definitely recommend this studio and hope to work there again soon.

Had my first shoot at Saracen House on Friday. Te studio is warm, with a welcoming and friendly feel to it, spacious and with a large dressing room too. Andrew was great, offering me a drink on arrival and telling me about the famous concrete cows of milton keynes (and yes, I did google them after lol). I would definitely reccommend this studio to any model or photographer, and would love the chance to work there again in the near future xx

It was my first time visiting and working at Saracen house today and i would happily go back it certainly lives up to its reputation. I was well looked after, andrew is very helpfull we were shooting for a product range and he was constantly on hand to give direction and dealing with the different lighting set ups. I would recomend to both photographers and models to use this studio, its well presented, great changeing room and a very helpfull owner. I hope to visit again in the near future.

Ive worked in Saracen house once for an individual shoot and recently on a studio weekender. Saracen filled all slots on the weekend very early and all the photographers who attended were great to work with. Mainly shooting fashion or glamour The images taken on the weekend were awesome and the lighting equipment and studio guidance enabled the images to be consistently great! There is a great variety of lighting equipment at the studio, great colours for back drops and plenty to shoot. Theres also a great atmosphere in the studio that allows everyone to get creative and focus on what they do best. Definitely looking forward to working at this studio again, and would highly recommend them to anyone, regardless of what you are shooting.
