Shout

Second shoot in this amazing space & already cooking up a third. Sara is a great host & the studio is well equipped for multiple backdrops. Great spaces for dressing, make up artists & multiple photographers.

This is THE place in the midlands for your shoot!

Elizabeth Hitchins – Fashion Kimono Stylist

Sara is maintaining her reputation for running the best studio in Birmingham, certainly in the opinion of both myself and my quite large group of photographers. Sara spends considerable time and effort in dressing the studio and updating it for seasonal shoots, such as the Winter Wonderland backdrops we shot against last weekend. All of my group have been very impressed from the initial guided tour, to realising the variety of light and setting that her studio space and 1930s building offer to photographers and models, to taking shots and getting a wide variety of pleasing images. I have booked it for most of my studio shoots in 2016 and will be a returning customer in 2017 with my merry band. Once my group members have been along they often ask me if we are shooting there again and are always pleased to be back. Thank-you for the warm hospitality this year Sara, and look forward to more shoots with you in 2017!

Sara is a great person to meet and the studio was amazing to film in. I had a short film shoot and was able to use most of the building to film what I need. I produced some great footage and would recommend the studio to any photographer or filmmaker.

Duaine – Videographer

Had two shoots in a week at SS Creative both were fun and both very creative due in part to the variety at the studio.

The first was with Jessica Taylor and the second a duo shoot with Artemis Fauna and Scarlot Rose.

There are so many places to shoot at SS Creative and sure it would take weeks to cover all the areas to shoot. The studio itself is warm and has a range of lighting and a great deal of props!

I choose several of the other locations to shoot in including corridors, goods lift, stairwells and the gents toilet!! Jessica even took a trip in a (non permanent) shopping trolley!!

Sara is a great host and to confirm the amount of shoot space she also gives you a map!

Great place to work will definately be using again.

First time shooting at the studio, Vampire Princess and Princess Nikkie had arranged a Cosplay shoot here. The studio was easy to find, being a Saturday plenty of on street parking. The studio has a number of sets we were able to use other area’s within the building. Recommend the studio to all.

Look forward to shooting there again soon.

Simon Reynolds – Photographer

First time at SS Creatove today. Nice location super friendly member of staff there, heating was on ready, cool changing rooms lots of props and loads of cool hats. Being 5 mins from my house I’d sure love to do more work here

What a wonderful Studio SS Creative is! It is full of inspirational Props and Sets. Working with the lovely Roos James yesterday, it was the first time for both of us at SS Creative. Sara could not have been more welcoming and helpful in showing us around and making us at home.

We were knocked out by the quality of natural light, the fantastic Sets and settings, and the amazing Open Cage Lifts, Corridors and huge Windows that make SS Creative such a unique place to shoot. It won’t be long before we’re back, there is so much more to explore and Shoot.

Thank you, Sara!

Today I had the very real pleasure of working with Harley at SS Creative Photography in Birmingham. We hadn’t worked together before and neither of us had worked at SS Creative Photography before, so a bit of a baptism of fire.

It certainly is a studio with a difference, with a lot of amazing locations which offer the opportunity to achieve some truly unique pictures. The results we got are testament to this amazing facility.

So many thanks to Sara and Richard for this Aladdin’s Cave of a facility. Both Harley and I really enjoyed the experience and want to shoot with you again very soon.

Chris J Adams

Superb facilities! Basically you can shoot anywhere in this very inspirational building along with the superb shooting area inside the studio itself. Sara is very warm and inviting and provides a professional outlook when taking shots and is more than happy to accommodate any strange requests of which I’ve given!

Recommend this studio to any photographer. Well worth it!

Rocket Cottage Photography

A great studio with a wide ranging selection of varied, authentic, atmospheric backgrounds to choose from. Super helpful and very accommodating staff and ridiculously good vale hire rates. Splendid!

I’ll certainly be using it again and highly recommend it to others.

Ian – Photographer

Yesterday saw me working at SS Creative on Thomas Street in Aston, Birmingham for the first time – and what a positive experience it was for me and for all of the other models and photographers involved in the Film Noir shoot organised by Deb and Steve at Tip Top.

Very convenient for the city centre, the Telsen building in which SS Creative has its home is a warren of light industrial and office spaces linked by suitably atmospheric corridors and dripping with 1930s’ fixtures and fittings – the superb four-person caged lift is a star in its own right. The fresh and bright main studio is a sumptuous space in which to chill out, have a brew, discuss the previous scene and get changed for the next one. Thank you so much Sara for your hospitality as well as the use of your fantastic studio – very much appreciated!

IlGattapardo – Photographer

I was introduced to ss creative today and wow just wow. This studio is so up my street. Not only does it have a studio in the true sense of the word but the building and potential is immense. So much scope, the lifts, staircases and corridors are brilliant. My only regret is that 4 hours wasn’t nearly long enough!!!!

Here’s hoping I get to come back soon, real soon!!!!!

If anybodys listening…. lol

PaigeAntonia – Model

Absolutely fantastic!! Our wedding photos have been captured amazingly! So happy with them and our guests thought you were great too, everyone commented on how on the ball you were and friendly and polite! You also dressed to our vintage theme making you look more like guests so fitted in perfectly. Thank you once again, we will definitely be requiring your camera attention again!! Xxxxx

Laura & Alex Read – Wedding Photography

Second time using SS Creative Photography service and they are highly recommended. Friendly, professional, unique and reliable. We will be using you again in future. Thank you very much, the photos are beautiful!!

“Had my first shoot at the studio on the 20th and was so pleased with the studio/building I immediately booked in for the following Friday! I had two completely different styles shoots and was able to achieve different looks with the use of the corridors and cage lifts in the building. The facilities for the models are great too. Would definitely recommend this studio to anyone, and will defiantly be booking with them again!”

Lazoaa Photography

“First shoot at SS Creative, and can’t recommend them highly enough. Great sets, extremely helpful and friendly owner, coffee and biscuits, and free parking! Couldn’t ask for more. Really enjoyed my time there, and will certainly be back for more shoots. ”

Joleen Turner – Model

“I had the pleasure of working at SS Creative studio on my Birmingham tour when a photographer booked it. I am really glad he did. Its a lil gem. I love the studio and the variety it has to offer. I even got served with loads of hot water bottles to keep me warm between sets. Owner really nice, helpful, hospitable, friendly, courteous and professional. Ticked all the boxes. Highly recommend with 5 stars *****. Thank you very much and hope to attend again.”

Wendy Louise xx

“I had a shoot booked here today for 4 hours. Turned up and had a tour of the whole place with recommendations where to try and whats looked good. Really friendly and fun and the space is amazing. The studio itself has a nice variety of props and lighting amd also some clothes. But the natuaral light is amazing. Will be using again and is more than value for money.”

MDB Images

“Used this studio in two workshops and love shooting here. So many creative spaces to use to get some great shots. Sara is an excellent host and provided us with a tour of the studio. Works very well as a model too. Will definitely be back.”

Aatish Ramchurn – Photographer

“Was great to be back at the SS Creative Studio yesterday. Seems like ages since I was last there. I’d almost forgotten how much fun it is to shoot there. Was great to catch up with the lovely Sara. Had a fantastic shoot. Explored the old building again and got some great images with the help of the lovely Knysina. Looking forward to going back there very soon and as always – Highly recommended”

Rob Wardle – Photographer

“Had an awesome time at SS Creative on both occasions this month. There are a lot areas to shoot in, wonderful natural light and great props. Also had a very warm welcome, was made to feel comfortable and had a tour before the shoot commenced. Overall experience was lovely and I hope to return in the future.”

Anna Rose – Model

“What a fantastic place! It’s so different to the vast majority of other studios out there. So for those of you thinking of going, but have perhaps shied away because of it’s unique nature – let me explain why you should give it a go. The main room has lots of interesting little sets that are perhaps what most people are familiar with when considering a studio, and Sara has loads of cool plans to add more of these in the coming months. In addition the multitude of different corridors, stairwells, old cage-style elevators, and strange little nooks that you’d expect to see in an old factory/warehouse built in 1930!

Sara’s main studio area has massive windows that flood the room with all the light you’ll need, and I just used a reflector to balance this out in my shots. As for the basics; Sara’s pre-shoot comms were excellent. On the day Sara helped me with all my gear, before making us all tea/coffee and then giving us a guided tour of the building. She offered advice and gave suggestions for shots, before leaving us to crack on.

To summarise, the place is awesome!”

Jay Jewell – Photographer

“I had a shoot on the 17th of June at SS and I am really impressed by this studio, I love the windows and the natural floor boards that give it a lot of character, It is a large space although does not seem empty, there are a number of backdrops available, my favorite being made of pallets. Highly recommended! ”

Luna Rose – Model

“What a fab studio!!!!Had the pleasure of working with the West Midlands Photography Group doing some simple body paints on 2 models in the style of horror at this unusual studio. Sara and the group made me feel welcome which is great as it was my first time at the studio. I believe the group will produce some interesting horror images due to the facilities the studio has. I would love to work there again and would recommend the studio. Thank you for making my experience enjoyable.”

Whimsical Sorceress – MUA

“Back again (actually, twice in the last week!). Simply, the most varied studio I know. Friendly, helpful, and more locations available than I have got through yet. Going to have to come back again. And again, and again.”

John Duder – Photographer

“I’ve worked at SS Creative photography several times now. The open plan studio is great and allows for multiple setups and great variety.”

Stuart Cox Photography – Photographer

“Had a great shoot today at SS. This was my first shoot at the studio, and wow, it has so much to offer. We only scratched the surface of areas to shoot in, and there is so much more to work with. Sara was very accommodating and helpful too. Communication was good prior to the shoot, this is a definite place everyone needs to experience. Book yourselves in, don’t miss out”

Matt Hill Images – Photographer

“Absolutely loved the studio from the moment I walked in. I’m not local to Birmingham so don’t know what the average industrial building is like there, but his one was spectacular. From the main studio room, to the hallays, staircases and old school cage lifts, we had so much to choose from. I recommend booking in quite a few hours at once for this studio as the variety is amazing. The main studio is very cool with lots of backdrops and settings, a brilliant model prep area, and all you need to sustain you through the day (tea/coffee/biscuits etc.) I’m really looking forward to going back and working with Sara in the future”

PheonixRed – Model

“An awesome studio with scope for many different styles of photography. The space is well equipped with a perfect space for a Make Up Artist to set up and have plenty of space to work in, this includes large mirrors and a large dressing table, there is plenty of daylight through the industrial style windows and Sara was very helpful while I was working by bringing in a light for my model to counteract any shadows, so I basically had a perfect working environment thank you! Sara has really thought about this space and put a lot of work into it which has made it so versatile, I would highly recommend this space.”

ellieandhearts – Make Up Artist

“Sara recently did a shoot on location at Severn Valley Railway. I manage a Soul and Motown vocalist from Chicago called Bobby Woods. I spoke to Sara about the images I wanted to portray and the era of music he performs. We agreed on the location and on the day she brought everything I asked for to life! She also had other innovative ideas and made my artist feel at ease, optimising more natural shots. I will always use SS Creative Photography for any project I work on, business or leisure. They are second to none. Professional, friendly and open minded. Fantastic to work with and the results exceeded our expectations! The speed in which I received the final edited images was also really impressive! Thank you for an enjoyable experience. –

“Had a bridal MUA shoot with Sara on Saturday. She is so amazing at everything she does. Worked with us for 5 hours inbetween welcoming and giving other photographers tours of the studio. Defo want to collaborate again. She’s so talented! Can’t wait for the images”

Mariya Kauser – MUA Portfolio Shoot

“Amazing photographer!! So friendly and lovely, always offering cups of tea ! Very professional and helpful. The studio is fantastic and I couldn’t be happier with my final major collection photos”
