Our Studios

We are fortunate enough to have two studios, both based in rural Dumfries and Galloway. The first is the Castle Studio at Drumlanrig Castle and the second is the Studio at Brownhill. Both are well serviced, professional standard studios.

Castle Studio is a large, high ceiling studio, pefect for photoshoots. With a separate room for changing for your convenience and oodles of parking, why not book your photoshoot at Castle Studio, in the shadow of one of Scotland's finest buildings.

Drumlanrig Castle is one of South West Scotland’s best known and best loved tourist attractions. Situated on the Queensberry Estate in Dumfries & Galloway it is home to the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch and Queensberry. Home to the Buccleuch art collection which features work from some of the great masters such as Rembrandt and Da Vinci. 

We are fortunate enough to have access to the grounds which can provide a great backdrop for your portraits.

When you come to the castle studio, you will also have a complimentary hour pass to the grounds and gardens.

The Studio at Brownhill is based just outside of Thornhill, approximately 8 miles North of Dumfries on the A76 with onsite parking. Changing facilities are also provided for your convenience. 

Brownhill is a former Inn and was often frequented by Robert Burns. In fact this is where he wrote his famous poem - “The Soldiers Return”. The Inn was also known to have been visited by William Wordsworth and Samuel Coleridge so when you come here for your portrait session you will certainly be in good company. 

Below are examples of text written about the property written by Rabby Burns. The inglenook that he speaks of was in the room where your photographs will be taken. Bacon was the landlord at the time.

“At Brownhill we always get dainty good cheer, 

And plenty of bacon each day in the year; 

We’ve a’ thing that's nice, and mostly in season,

But why always Bacon-come, tell me a reason?”

“n honest Bacon's ingle-neuk,

Here maun I sit and think; 

Sick o' the world and world's folk,

And sick, d-mn'd sick o' drink….”
