Andrew McCormack – I had my first shoot at Creativus Imago Photography Studio today. Communication leading up to today was highly efficient and friendly. Mike made me feel extremely welcome as soon as I arrived. I was given a tour of the studio together with information about the different sets and lighting. The studio is a superb environment. There are plenty of different sets and backdrops and there is plenty of room to move around. The facilities and general quality of the studio enabled me to get exactly the type of shots that I was looking for. I will be returning to Creativus Imago several times in the coming weeks and would strongly recommend it to any model or photographer.
Bobb66 – I booked the studio on the recommendation of Saint Goth a local model. Nicely equipped studio with several standing sets and a very flexible welcoming attitude. I live a long way away but plan to use the studio again when I get the chance. Thanks for an enjoyable shoot.
Oke Images – I had my first shoot at Creativus Imago Studio yesterday and I enjoyed the whole experience. Mike met me and gave me a tour of the lovely studio. Very nice guy and very helpful. Any questions I had Mike was happy to answer them. Everything you would want from a studio was there and the lighting set up was first class. I was working with Donna who mike introduced me to and we clicked straight away and she was very natural with her poses. Pre comms were spot on and I highly recommend this studio. Will be booking another slot very soon !
Real World Stu – I had my first shoot at Creativus a couple of days ago. Mike is friendly, helpful, professional and eager to help you achieve the shots you are looking for as well as givinv advice on lighting. There are many props to choose from, but the one I used most is a “Lara Croft” motorbike, which looked great with Zara du Rose on it. I hope to book further shoots at Creativus.
Trebor – I had my first shoot at Mike’s studio yesterday with Zara, Mike spent time showing me around his studio which has a number of terrific sets laid out with plenty of space. He was at hand to help with the lights and of course supplied plenty of refreshments. You got the feel from Mike that “my house is your house” and you can see he is constantly looking to keep the sets fresh and to a high standard. Highly recommended for all levels of photographers.
JTD-Photography – Booked the studio very last minute and Mike was able to fit in my requirement with no stress. The model and I arrived and were met with a warm welcome and an offer of tea or coffee while we were shown round the studio. The set up is great with lots of space and more options for concepts and props that you can shake a stick at. Great selection of lights and diffusers to choose from and Mike is always on hand to lend any assistance.
I will certainly be using the studio again and I can recommend this studio to any photographer or model.

Gem_Creative – This was the second time I have shot at this studio in two weeks, and proved very versatile indeed. This studio lends it self to many styles and has a great variety of sets that themselves can be easily adapted. I have used the studio for video to support singer tracks, and also for photography and had two great days there. Mike the owner is always on hand to assist and the hospitality and copious refreshments just add to a great experience. If you want that studio that gives large space and varied set ups then get in touch and book the studio for your shoot. I will be back soon as I have more shoots I want to use the studio for. Thanks Mike for everything including your all your help and hospitality.
Peter123 – Second shoot I have organised at Creativus as it has a good range of setups and kit to use. Everything was perfectly organised so we could start on time, and Mike was most helpful with sorting out lighting questions – interested in what I was trying to achieve and keen to help. Definitely a recommend from me.

The studio was warm, clean and tidy and Mike is the perfect host – happy to let you get on – but there when you need some help and advice. Highly recommended.
Peter123 – Just had my first session at Creativus today and definitely recommend them.

TonyA – I am a novice with limited experience and this was my first solo shoot, with a hired model i cannot thank Mike enough for his lighting support and with so many variations in backdrops, props and lighting i cant wait to go back for my next session. The location is easy to get too there is plenty of parking and you are minutes away the station and all amenities. I would not hesitate to recommend it.
TeoTotev – Studio is fantastically equipped with different setups, couches, chairs, bed and many backgrounds! Mike the studio owner is really helpful with setting up studio lighting and even prepared tea for me and the model. Superb studio, highly recommended and an absolute pleasure as a place to work in. Looking forward to work with you again!

Jon Downs – Had an awesome shoot with Theresa Louise at Mike Hardley’s excellent Creativus Imago Photography studio in Hitchin a few days ago. Mike is such a great guy and he was more than willing to help out with stuff around the studio as Theresa and I did our shoot. The studio itself is very well equipped, not only from a lighting perspective but also it has a great range of props and backdrops which Theresa and I made great use of. I genuinely loved the feel of the studio, great facilities all round! Couldn’t recommend the studio highly enough! – will definitely be back! – cheers Mike!!</center>
Karen (KK) – I used Mike’s new studio for the first time a week or so ago and can only say I was 100% impressed with the place. It is spacious, clean and warm and the array of backdrops and lighting equipment are conducive to achieving a variety of shots and effects. It is stocked with props, various accessories, fabrics, clothing etc available for use if wished. The model’s changing area is comfortable, well-lit and separate to the main studio area. It’s a mighty fine space and I can recommend it whole-heartedly. Mike is on hand for help with anything and supplies copious amounts of tea/coffee. I will definitely make use of this studio again and accessibility is good.
VisionsA – First shoot at Creativus Imago studio, & definitely will be going back soon! Great sets, awesome props (check out the steampunk bike!) – all above and beyond what you would find elsewhere. What other studio would give you the Eiffel Tower to work with! If you are looking for something just that bit different then I thoroughly recommend this studio,you won’t be disappointed! – and Mike makes a great cup of coffee! Smile – Thanks, Mike, see you soon!
Pippa Baron (MUA) and Team – Positives: Great price, really good opportunity for those of us that have other responsibilities and can’t afford sky high prices! You were lovely, really helpful, felt like we could ask you for help with anything but also very mindful of leaving us to it: perfect balance. Studio is absolutely beautiful, clean, professional, spacious. Really easy to move from one set to the next, great atmosphere with the music in the background and biscuits and coffee were a great, friendly touch
Negatives: NONE! Loved it! Absolutely loved it!
Ian Reynolds (Photographer)-One of the largest studio floor areas I have discovered to date. Good location. A great variety of backgrounds. All the other backgrounds we used have given good results and have a good variety. The space and backgrounds make it easy to switch between sets.The variety of props was excellent – especially the motor bike and the yellow couch . The Paris Bedroom set is wonderful. The changing room is excellent but could do with some heat proof pads for curling tongs etc.
B88 (Photographer)- Booked this studio for a half day, taking up Mike’s November offer of 50% discount. I was pleased to have done so, as the studio is great. The studio is modern, clean, bright, and warm. ( Clean & Modern W/C facilities,very convenient ) The studio is well catered for different setups, background, lighting equipment, props, etc. The changing and make up room for the MODEL is impressive, providing ample space and total privacy. Most of all, Mike , the studio manager is always at hand, to assist with your requests for setting the background and lighting choices, (Tea & Coffee , with Biscuits is always offered)
Antonella Imbimbo (Photographer) – Mike is really friendly as well as being extremely helpful. I would recommend working with mike as he has an eye for detail. I would love to model for him at the new studio perhaps in the near future. As it looks fantastic.
Debbie Simister (Photographer) – Mike is a fantastic asset to any photographer wanting to hire the studio. Patient, enthusiastic and professional! Mike listens, understanding your vision and requirements and will work with you to create the desired lighting set up. Highly recommended!
