New Year, new studio, and a fresh new vibe.
As we kickstart 2021 with a nationwide lockdown, how about a bit of good news?
Bailey’s brand has officially landed in London. Yes, that’s right, I’ve got my footprint in the capital!
After countless requests over the years to shoot with me in my own London base, I’m thrilled to be starting a new year with new photography prospects. To create the fully function private London gym, I teamed up with a good friend of mine, Laurence Fountain. Together we transformed prime London location into a high-end functional gym space for him for his successful coaching business Salus, and a cutting edge private studio for me.
A sister venue to the flagship Bailey Studio in Nottingham UK, The Vault is location conveniently located in De Beauvoir town (London N1), roughly 5-10 minutes from Shoreditch – and it makes me so psyched to be able to say that!
The original Bailey Studio is known around the globe for its unique backdrop and world-class equipment, so this new venue had a lot to live up to. But, believe me, you won’t be disappointed.
The new London gym and photo studio’s nickname “The Vault” stems from its rich history as a sensitive documents vault. We’ve incorporated this sense of mystery with monotone hues, clean lines and neon lights to create a slick, modern atmosphere that’s a totally different vibe to Bailey Studio in Nottingham.
Here’s what the space looked like before we transformed it into a unique and modern place to both workout and use as a set.
I’ve really gone overboard on the lighting, which creates a great look straight out of the camera. It also means that we can achieve fresh, sharp imagery without using any additional equipment (meaning you have more time to test out even more poses).
Speaking of equipment, when it comes to the gym itself, I’ve teamed up with Watson Gym Equipment again to supply the kit. They’re – hands down – the best out there, and they’ve provided customised equipment that offers a completely unique look for the shoots just as they did for Bailey Studio in Nottingham.
This high quality level of gym equipment coupled with an insanely cool backdrop makes The Vault the perfect space to host your coaching workshops or any kind of seminar – just imagine shooting an incredible film production here or recording your webinars.
The new private London gym and studio “The Vault” is available for hire, all you need to do is get in touch.
Over the years I’ve had so many requests to shoot in the capital that now’s the chance to do it – and do it Bailey style.
The diary is already filling up for 2021 in spite of various lockdowns, but to find out more about bookings and availability at the new Bailey Studio in London you can drop me a line here.
