Our Studios

We are fortunate enough to have two studios, both based in Dumfries and Galloway.

The first is at 49 Drumlanrig Street, Thornhill. Thornhill is a small, vibrant town situated 15 miles north of Dumfries and just 15 miles from the M74 with easy access to Edinburgh and Glasgow - both being just over an hour away. There are changing facilities at the studio, as well as complimentary tea, coffee and wifi. There is plenty of on street parking in the village as well as public conveniences. If you decide to book in for a shoot, then why not visit one of the fabulous pubs or cafes afterwards? Thomas Tosh serves a range of snacks and lightbites whilst The Bucchleuch and Queensbury Arms and The Thornhill Inn are perfect for lunches or dinners. If you just fancy a sweet treat then Thornhill is even home to tartan chocolate - the Moniaive Chocaltiers are just down the road.

The second is 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….”
