The Studio and its two kitchens at

First Option Location Studio

Scroll forward through photos

Both the studio and the main kitchen have high pitched roofs and exposed Scots pine trusses. Original Crittal windows line the Victorian brick walls to provide an abundance of natural light from the north and the south. Blackout blinds cover all windows and both skylights in the studio. This is an ideal warehouse style venue for any photo shoot or film projects. The balcony is an amazing feature when shooting in the large kitchen, meaning that lighting cranes aren’t so essential.
