Basement Photographic’s two studios are available on a daily rental for photographers, filmakers and videographers. 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, they’re comfortable and calm with plenty of space plus a hair / makeup and client areas with Wi-Fi. 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 to facilitate this. Hair and make-up artists, stylists and production crew can also be provided – please contact us to discuss your requirements.
