Graveyard Set with Crypt
We have recently added a brand new set for all those lovers of Zombie, Walking Dead and cosplay fans. With loads of available props and the smoke machine to add atmosphere the opportunities to create stunning unique images are endless. We have full sized gravestones and a full size crypt you can get into. We also have a hand made coffin.
We now how a brand new waterfall set specially built for photography. Available for hire this 20ft high waterfall is perfect for the shots you always wanted without the trek across mountains. Models can get behind the water, in front, to the sides, there is a splash pool at the bottom as well and rock shelves at the sides for seating.
We have off camera flash stands, flsh triggers and soft boxes to use as part of the rental. The waterfall is right next to the studio so the models can quickly get warm, have a shower and a hot drink.
