Basement Photographic’s newly refurbished soundproof drive-in Studio C is now available for rental. Situated in the Thameside town of Bourne End just 30 miles from central London, the Studio’s location (ideal for Bucks, Berks and the South East) is easily accessible from the M40 and M4 and has ample parking and easy load-in.

Inside, it’s quiet, comfortable and calm with plenty of space plus a hair / makeup and client area with Wi-Fi. The main shooting background width of 8.75m is finished in white or can be painted in chroma key paint if required. We also have chroma key green fabric and full length black drapes. A 10m length of white painted brick wall that is free from switches, plugs and other obstructions, provides another useful background.

Although Studio C is a stand alone-studio where your privacy will be respected, it forms part of the Basement Photographic complex of 3 studios. So there will always be someone on-hand to ensure that you have all that you need to remain productive through-out the day (including essential tea and coffee on tap)!

We have a set-building workshop on-site, so we can fabricate sets for you in advance if required. We also have a stock of flats, windows, doors and flooring etc to facilitate this. Hair and make-up artists, stylists and production crew can also be provided – please contact us to discuss your requirements.
