This was my second time working at Keranda, but my first working with Kev as a photographer. Though it took a while to organise it was well worth it in the end, he ensured I was comfortable for the entirety of the shoot, tea, coffee, and biscuits provided as well as a warm, safe studio to work in, and he even went to the extremes to ensure I know 100% the route to the studio, how to get there and how much it would call cost. Kev also helped direct me if the poses I pulled were ever off behind the camera to ensure they were perfect every time. Thanks for the great day, would work again for certain and highly recommended!
Some of my favourite shoots came out of working with Kev at his studio. Always shows the upmost hospitality during our shoot.
He also owns a great array of costumes, props and backgrounds allowing for photographers and models to create a wide variety of images.
I adore working with Kev and would highly recommend him to anyone interested.
It was a long time coming, but I finally got to experience shooting at Keranda, it had a definite homey feel, and tea/biscuits were available on tap! Enjoyed working there lots , quite roomy so space for various poses. Recommended
Lovely guy! I have no bad words about kev he is just so nice! He knows exactly what he is doing. Hope to see/work with him again soon!
What a guy!! Amazing studio, very warming (literally.... the heaters are sick!), comfortable, Nice selection of clothing and props, loadsssss of backdrops! But kev himself is the main reason I enjoy coming to Keranda! He makes me feel very comfortable and if ever I were to have any problems I would text him and he would come straight outside to the studio within seconds! (Mainly coffee orders lol). never had a problem at all when at Keranda so would highly recommend booking there!! He has gone out of his way to help me out, get me more bookings, give me tips on how to pose in certain lights etc... can’t thank him enough!!!! His knowledge of photography aswell as the studio and hospitality are well worth it!
Thank you kev for everything xx
I worked at Keranda Studios today with a photographer, mightykitey. Kev did a great job of setting up the lights, provided biscuits and drinks, and has a great studio. I'd recommend it to any model and photographer, thank you for having us!
I had a studio day at Keranda Studio, and had the pleasure to work with Kevin. He directed me very well during our shoot. I will definitely use the tips he’s given me in my further shoots, and so Kevin was such a great host! Made sure I was okey. I can say wholeheartedly that I felt like home at Keranda Studio thanks to Kevin!
Big thank you Keving for this wonderful opportunity to work at your studio.
Hope do work together again soon!
I have had a few shoots at Keranda now and was back again for another shoot. The studio is cosy and has props for inspiration. I would recommend it for anyone who may be considering booking the space or even wanting to work with Kevin. He is a great host ! thank you

I finally had a short time to shoot with Kev and was introduced to his studio also which I no doubt will be back working in soon enough!
He Is a lovely, talented guy who knows what he wants to produce & how to do so.
I am hoping to get more bookings with Kev soon & really enjoyed our productive if a little too short time together!
Had my first shoot at Keranda recently with model Sarahlouise. Really nice studio, was made to feel comfortable with a nice friendly vibe. Would be more than happy shooting there again.
Had a fantastic time yesterday at Keranda Studio. Kev was super lovely, welcoming and very professional, and made me feel very relaxed. I look forward to my next visit!
What a lovely Guy Kev is ! I haven’t shoot with him personally , but was shooting at his studio and what a lovely place that is! Nice and warm, tea and coffee anytime you feel a need, such a welcoming approach and so many props around! It’s pleasure meeting him and hope to use his studio facilities in the future
Since joining the model register at Keranda Kev has somehow managed to get me a constant flow of shoots.
I always feel welcome at his studio and well taken care of.
I'd 100% recommend shooting with Kev or using his studio.
FINALLY!! We get the opportunity to meet. Shame I only got to shoot with you very quickly but hopefully this will change. It's always nice to work in a new place and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Biscuits provided and unlimited tea won me over.
Would I shoot there again.... absolutely!!
Kevin recently booked me for two days at Keranda studios, and I was very happy with the studio itself and Kevin's wonderful treatment, making me feel very welcome.
The pre-comms were great, so I knew exactly who I was booked with at what time, and Kevin also advised me of any wardrobe requests well in advance of the bookings.
Unfortunately we didn't get much time to shoot together, but Kevin had clear ideas of what he wanted to achieve and had lots of ideas for our shoot and so the time flew by!
Thank you for a wonderful weekend at Keranda and for being such a generous host and I hope to visit again!
I have been shooting at Keranda studio for years now and have lost count how many shoots but always really enjoy my shoots there. Pleased to get booked to shoot at Keranda by Patrick Taylor last Monday brilliant shoot as usual at Keranda the backdrops and sets transformed in to Patricks fantasy idea is lovely cosy studio and Kev is brilliant host to models and photographers working there providing snacks and refreshments and help if needed. He is also a great photographer himself. Looking forward to working at Keranda again
I've been to Keranda ever since I started modelling just over two years ago...
Having been to Keranda about 4/5 times since my last reference I can honestly say that Kev is such a nice, accommodating and professional guy! Always welcoming and offering me tea, coffee and biscuits whenever I need refreshments!
Kev is super helpful to me and any photographer coming to shoot at Keranda and always puts himself out to make sure everything is going okay.
I can't wait for many more shoots at Keranda within the future! Thanks Kev!

Kev was the best host, I really enjoyed being at his studio.
Very pleasant man, very creative and a very down to earth person.
I would definitely recommend shooting at his studio.
Kev was really great at communications leading up to the shoot at his studio !
Great at directions and such a lovely host. The studio was nice, with a little screened area with mirror, good lighting and heated too! Couldn't really ask for much more ! Kev also made sure I was comfortable at all times and got me a lovely cup of coffee. Although I didn't shoot with Kev, he booked me with two photographers and the whole session ran so smoothly. Thank you Kev for your wonderful hospitality and interesting conversation, hope to see you again in the future !!
Thank you so much for having me back.
This is my third studio weekend at Keranda and I feel it is still one of the best studios I have had the pleasure of working at.
Kevin manages to book up 2 or 3 days every time I visit Norfolk and the days always run smoothly with a great group of photographers.
The owner is friendly, respectful and well a complete gentleman who made sure I was comfortable & had lots of cups of tea and biscuits.
I hope he will have me back some time next year.
Had a great shoot with Kev at his studio, he's very friendly and supplies plenty of tea.
I was a bit nervous about doing my first set intended for publication but Kev explained exactly what was needed and where the images would go before getting started so I could relax and enjoy the shoot.
I'm looking forward to my next visit to his studio.
I had a great time with Kev at his studio in Watlington.
I've never been given as much detail and care as Kev gave me planning my trip to the studio - I was given the exact location, the time of my train, the time I was going to be picked up.. and indeed he turned up on time at the station ready to drive me to the studio
Plenty of tea and biscuits provided throughout the shoot as well as a friendly atmosphere. Hope I can get behind your lens soon!
Footnote; Keranda Studio is in East Winch, Watlington is nearest rail station.
It was my fourth time working at Keranda yesterday. Kevin is extremely polite and hospitable and his pre comms are always amazing. Great studio and I always feel very welcome.
Looking forward to visit number 5!
Thank you Kevin
My second visit to the studio now! Kev has always been super lovely and helpful as a studio host: I remember from my first visit to the studio that he was a star (on the ball with bringing in the tea/making everyone feel happy and comfortable as we worked). So when I got another booking at the studio on my recent tour of East Anglia, I knew that my photographer and I were set to receive 5 star service again! And that's exactly what we got: Kev was on hand to help set things up and assist in any way he could but also left us to it to get a flow going being just a shout away if we needed him. Lovely gent and cannot do enough to make time at the studio as pleasant an experience as possible for both models and photographers.
This time around, I also got the chance to shoot with Kev too! It was uber-cool seeing him make fantastic creative use of his studio sets - Kev has naturally done countless shoots at his place and even so: he will still go to so much effort to be as innovative as he can when he shoots models. We only shot for the hour but boy did we rock some variety: from elegant and arty to fun/lifestyle and quirky! The images looked fab on the back of the camera and I so much look forward to sharing them... Kev's a fab photographer with a good eye for an image, he's tremendous with direction too which goes to show he knows exactly what he is looking for from a photographic perspective and that if any models were to work with him who weren't perhaps quite so confident in a posing repertoire then Kev would be able to help considerably.
He also has epic experience with lighting an image and backdrop: he had an amazing new backdrop to try out and did an amazing job at creating a setup that made the whole thing look real! Very professional in how he creates his imagery and works so confidently with his lights to make a set work beautifully. Kev has got an eye for all manner of styles too which helps on a creative shoot because when you know what too look for in a pose/idea as a photographer then it's minor changes that make stupendous differences in images and Kev works this very well.
Prior to the day, I had contact with him and received the usual brilliance in communications being totally helpful in finding his place (I came by train the first time and drove this time). It makes life so much easier when you have this aptitude to help out from people like Kev because a tour can be a hectic time for a model, but Kev was a star!
An extreme pleasure to work with: makes models feel totally at home with lovely hospitality and complete professionalism delivered from start to finish. I most definitely recommend Kev both as a studio owner and a photographer.
Thank you ever so much Kev! Until my next visit!
Great photographer and very polite! A gentleman and funny. Very cosy and comfortable studio too! I had so much fun working with Kevin and it's my first time working at Keranda studio! I look forward to working with you again soon Louisa x
I'm not sure how many times I've worked at Keranda studio now, but it is always a pleasure! Kevin looks after me well and is very diligent in ensuring that the day is booked. I look forward to next time!
I had my third shoot at Keranda with Kevin yesterday. He is one of the friendliest and professional photographers I know! He has great pre comms and I always know what to expect when I arrive.
Very accommodating also, always offering me tea and biscuits! I highly recommend to all models and photographers using the studio and hope to shoot at Keranda many more times!
I have had a couple of shoots at Keranda studio
Its a very good studio, with lots of space and plenty of outfits and props.
Kevin the owner is a really nice guy, always on hand for set changes, then leaves you to it. Plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits.A very warm and welcoming studio.Looking forward to many more shoots there
I visited the studio for the first time, to work with Scarlett Blaze on her studio day.
Kevin was very welcoming, with a tour of the facilities and tea and biscuits on arrival.
The studio was great to work in, with a good selection of backdrops and props.
We had spoken beforehand about backdrops and settings that i had in mind for the shoot, and these were all set up and prepared for when i arrived.
Would love to return to the studio in the future
Erik from Norway
Had another shot with the beautiful Lotti Rose at Keranda Studio today. Kevin always does his best to satisfy photographers when it comes to studio details and props. Highly recommended studio. I have shot Lotti several times before and she is always friendly and chatty. Highly recommended. I hope to shoot with her again at Keranda later.

Had a great shoot at Keranda. Kevs communications was spot on making sure I had the set squared away and giving great directions. On the day Kev supplied refreshments and ensured the lighting was to my liking as a resultI had an amazing shoot experience with B19.
Thank you Kev and highly recommended - will be watching your model days with interest.
It is so good to see Kev well again
I have used Keranda may times, and I plan to use many times more. This studio is packed with props and equipment. It is an Aladdin's cave. The equipment is excellent and the tea and biscuits are ever flowing.
More importantly though is the effort that Kev puts into making sure that the shoot is just what was needed. His attention to detail is phenomenal, and nothing is too much trouble. His conversation is engaging and it is like being part of the family.
f you have not yet tried Keranda - why not!
Had another successful visit to Keranda Studio as always Kevin was the perfect host and Tasha a great model, would recommend Keranda studio to all photographers and models alike. Many Thanks Kevin.

I have used Keranda a number of times. I have always been met with a very warm welcome. The studio has an excellent range of props and lights. Nothing is too much trouble. Kevin is happy to let you set your own lighting or on hand if needed.
What a great studio owner and provider who goes that bit further to make a visit to Keranda an experience. Starting with clear information and a website that has his excellent model register and shows all the sets and accessories to dress the set. Good communication and when at the eleventh hour a model for proper serious family health reasons had to withdraw Kevin stepped in and found an alternative Freya Fawn who he could recommend was brilliant and she was. The day saved and Kevin on hand to ensure the studio was ready and prepared but then unobtrusive support when requested. This is a studio to use and you will not be disappointed - thankyou Graham
Having previous used te Keranda studio on one of their model days, I just had to hire them for one of my own arranged shoots as the service they offer is amongst the best I have ever seen. Once again Kevin picked the model up and myself up from the local bus stop, and provided hot drinks while we were setting up for ths shoot.
With previous contact to Kevin, he had already set up a requested background which worked brilliantly not to mention the props and light attachments, which help gained some incredible results. Kevin was also at hand to change background upon request.
am already in talks with other models to once again hire the Keranda studio as despite it being away from where I live, it is truly value for money and will always be my first choice of studio to hire in the future.
Thank you Kevin for all your help and look forward to working with you again in the near future.
My second studio booking of 2018 today, faultless contact, superb studio, Kevin is such a friendly and helpful host
Models love him, the kettle is always on and my bookings run smoothly due to his efforts !!
Many thanks for all your help Kevin, I look forward to many more Keranda days in 2018
My first photoshoot at Keranda but definitely not my last. The studio was easy to book and ready when I arrived to a warm welcome from Kevin. There was initial support and help and advice were on hand if needed as well as drinks. The studio is well equipped and has good lighting and a host of backdrops and props. Thank you Kevin for a great photo experience.
Another brilliant shoot arranged by Kevin at Keranda studios. This time with the most talented Freya Fawn. Kevin is always about to bring drinks, Jaffa cakes etc as well as advice when needed. A great host as well a a great photographer in his own right. I always look forward to go to Keranda studios. A perfect little studio. Thank you Kevin for another brilliant time at your studio. I do and will recommend Keranda Studios to models and photographers alike
I got in touch with Keranda studios as soon as I heard that a model that I was hoping to work with, would be available to shoot there. Needless to say that talks right from the start were positive and extremely prompt throughout.
Upon meeting the studio owner Kevin, that kindly met me at the bus stop and took me to the studio. Upon reaching the Keranda studio, Kevin offered to make coffee and was always at hand to help with moving props or changing backgrounds if needed.
I would gladly book Keranda studio again & despite his little dog having plenty to yap at upon my arrival, I have to say that Keranda Studios is one of the best friendliest studio's that I have had the pleasure of hiring.
I highly recommend Keranda Studios to all photographers & models, and hope to pay you more visits in 2018.
Thank you Kevin for all your hard work in setting up the brilliant scenery and for your kindness with the picking up & well needed coffee.
I attended the 20th anniversary group shoot at Keranda Studio and what a great day I had. Kevin is a great person friendly and kind. He has a vast knowledge of photography and has helped me become a better photographer. I would certainly recommend you try his studio
Thank you for all the you have done for me.
I attended the group shoot yesterday to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Keranda studio.
Kev is a great host and always there to help or offer advice. Fantasticaly equipped studio and a great model booked to work with.
I will certainly use Keranda again wether it be for a group or a personal booking.
Kevin is such a nice man, models love him, I love him, his studio is great to shoot at and whether its help and advice with the lighting or cups of tea that are needed Kev is happy to do both !
Every Keranda studio day has been a quality day in life and I look forward to many more
Thanks for everything Kev
I had my first ever introduction into studio shooting with Kevin and it was a brilliant experience from initial contact through till leaving the studio..
Keranda Studio is a great place to learn, Kevin's knowledgeable and friendly tuition really helped me get started.
I'll look forward to using Keranda in the very near future.
Many Thanks Kevin.
said...I have known of Kevin and Keranda Studio for sometime. Today I had the great pleasure of shooting Blonde94 at Keranda and of course finally meeting Kevin.
The studio is like Aladin's Cave you could easily shoot there all day and still have many different options. Plenty of props and some pretty unique backgrounds. For models it's warm and comfortable very warm actually and there's a privacy area for changing.
Kevin was the perfect host offering just the right amount of assistance. He very kindly assisted me with my travel arrangements, collected me from the local bus stop and even drove me back to a railway station in the middle of a field somewhere in Norfolk so I could get home.
Damn nice chap will definitely return in near future.
