Studio & Exhibitions

A bright white space in the heart of Brighton.

Located on Oxford Street, our south facing, easily accessible studio is right in the heart of the city. We hire our studio out to anyone in need of a fresh, white wall space for photography. In addition to the space itself, we also offer the use of our equipment and guidance on how to use it. Our backdrops can comfortably fit around 4 to 6 people. If you are looking for a larger space, we’re happy to arrange use of our sibling studio in Hove.

Our studio is also a space for exhibitions and pop up events. Owing to a lack of white wall space in Brighton, our main clients are photographers, but we also host painters, ceramicists and sculptors, so please contact us if you’d like to put on an exhibition.

We continually support two key events in the city: Artist Open Houses and Brighton Photo Fringe. Being in the city centre and on main bus routes makes the studio a great destination to showcase your work. Our rates for exhibition hire vary relative to both season and demand so please contact us if this is of interest to you.

For further information, please don’t hesitate to email us at studio@nickfordphotography.co.uk or complete the ‘contact us’ field.

Nick is an exceptionally friendly and helpful guy. I hired the studio before lockdown for a very affordable price. It has all the equipment you need to get great results. I highly recommend it. Thanks Nick see you again after lockdown.

Nick recently hosted my photography exhibition at his Oxford Street studio. The studio is a fantastic space to exhibit in, and Nick's help, encouragement and support were invaluable. My first exhibition was a truly positive and genuinely enriching experience, and I would have no hesitation in recommending both Nick and his studio.

Hired his studio space as I was out of luck and needed somewhere last minute. He was ridiculously accommodating and a really lovely guy, can't recommend him enough.
