So when I wanted to hold a studio day during my Scotland tour I immediately thought of The Gray Room. I had worked there previously and loved the space and facilities.

Again John was really helpful with recommending and advertising the studio day and comms were brilliant.

John also helped me through a travel disaster and was certainly an asset to contacting photographers and keeping me calm, so thank you very much John!...

As before the space is wonderful, clean well furnished and the equipment is well kept.

I would absolutely recommend the studio to others models and photographers... A really creative and beautiful space with studio and natural light.

Thanks again John!

Visited the Gray Room for the first time when Arabella held a studio day there on Saturday 11th November 2017.

The studio is very spacious, there is a good atmosphere , equipment is first class and a bonus is that studio lighting and natural light is equally possible. For the technically advanced the equipment is all in place should you require modifiers /lights etc.

A very professional set up to be thoroughly recommended.

Neill Ross – Photographer

The Gray Room is a fantastic facility.

John is welcoming, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. The studio space is roomy and well appointed with all the support facilities you could ask for and, on the technical side, there is a great range of lighting, modifiers and backdrops. If natural light is your thing, there’s oodles of that too. John also offered assistance to set up the lighting and changed backdrops as we went etc making for a very productive shoot.

A great facility and a terrific host. As the man said “I’ll be back”

Worked here for the first time recently, its a lovely space with lots of natural light and a great amount of space for lots of different styles of shoot. Really clean and pleasant environment and to top it off there was coffee and biscuits! Would very happily work there again

Saskia Su -  Makeup and Nails

Worked again at this lovely studio for a poison ivy inspired body paint studio day with Model Sissa. John was very helpful and accommodating throughout from booking the studio to the day itself.

The studio itself is a beautiful space big enough for group shoots and allows both natural light and Studio lighting photoshoots. Hoping to be back again soon. I can't recommend it enough

Sissa – Model

Worked for the first time in the Gray Room and what a beautiful space! Massive windows and an almost pure white room, really allowed creativity to flow as the space was serene. It was one of the best organised studios I've ever been in with labeled drawers for equipment that made me want to run out and buy a label-maker. There were also pull-down blinds to block the natural light if more control was desired by photographers. Coffee, biscuits, kind welcome. Would love to shoot here again. Highly recommend

My first visit to The Gray Room was for a creative make-up/body paint shoot organised by Miss Saskia Su. The studio itself is an excellent size – more than large enough for full-body shots at 85mm – and has abundant natural light from two large windows in addition to a great selection of lights and modifiers. All the equipment is very well organised and stays out of your way until you need it.

The owner, John, was lovely – he made us feel really welcome and was on hand to help if we had any questions. I certainly hope to shoot here again and would definitely recommend the studio to others!

Miss Sassy Su – Model

Shot at the wonderful studio for the second time yesterday   This was the first time I had shot here in the day time and the natural light coming in was lovely. We were lucky to get both harsh and soft light. John is great and super helpful. Looking forward to go back at the end of the month.

Stephen Wardrop – Photographer

I've worked at the Gray Room a number of times, both at modelling days and as a studio hire and I can't speak highly enough of both the studio and John. The studio itself is a beautiful natural light space and is equipped with everything you need in terms of studio lighting and equipment. John is incredibly helpful (particularly useful for someone like me who lacks studio experience) and enthusiastic about photography and what he does. Very highly recommended.

A gem of a Studio to find in Glasgow, superbly equipped, roomy, great ambient light, and John is so helpful, great Studio, deserves to and will do well.....first of many shoots hopefully.............thanks John!!

Belle Eve – Model

Just a little reference as I imagine its the beginning of many!

The gray room is a fabulous little space with everything you could possibly need. I have shot there twice now and both times John has been incredibly welcoming and so helpful.

I can only recommend highly and as I said I will be back!

Much love,



Arabella – Model

I had a wonderful visit to the Gray Room during my Scotland tour. Comms with John were fairly last minute as the studio had been booked by the photographer, however I wanted to arrange something afterwards at the studio and Johns comms were fabulous and booking in was very easy and painless!...

On the day John was very chatty and friendly with a relaxed demeaner, which gave the studio the same feel.

The studio is located in a working office block but throughout it's clean and tidy including the toilets which are a quick hop & skip from the studio.

What a wonderful space, I love the light here, there is both natural light and studio, but as everything is so white it just looks fresh, bright and clean! There is somewhere to play music, a little make-up/changing area with mirrors etc... A lovely seating area and place to make hot and cold drinks.

The shoot space is wonderful it's completely open with a variety of backdrops, colours, white, black & grey... It has everything you could need!...

I felt comfortable and safe whilst in the studio and I would certainly recommend it to other models, especially touring models... And also to photographers!...

A wonderful studio, fabulously equipped, comfortable space and a lovely studio owner!...

Thanks again John! I hope to return!

Fabulous studio!

Have modelled and photographed here: there's good space, excellent natural light, a variety of backdrops, mirrors and changing partitions and all the lights you could need.

Mr. Gray is super easy to get on with, always on hand to help and makes the whole experience really positive.

Also, lots of tea and biscuits available.

I'd absolutely recommend this studio!

Matt777 – Photographer

A well run, well equipped studio including two large windows for daylight shooting. All with a wealth of Art & Photographic knowledge and experience provided by someone who also has character and a warm personality which contributes to a relaxed friendly atmosphere.

I cannot think of a better place to create images than The Gray Room!.....!

Used John's studio today for an asian bridal shoot which went really well, I was warmly welcomed into the studio and John showed me around, doing his very best to accommodate my needs, letting me know the items I had to work with, which I must say they're was a huge variety of fantastic items to compliment my shoot. Asian bridals can be very complex in terms organisation and John made myself and my team feel a lot more comfortable working in his lovely minimilstic studio setup, I would highly recommend and would not hesitate to use The Grey Room in the future, very well done John!

I could not have asked for a better experience and I will definitely be using the Gray Room again, I really could not recommend this studio enough

Have had the pleasure of using The Gray Room for my photography a number of times. Perfectly equipped with the best of resources, terrific natural light, and John is your wonderful host and proprietor. Who will always go out his way to accommodate his clients. Will continue to use this venue for as long as I need a professional studio. No reason to look anywhere else and would highly recommend this studio to anyone.

Amazing experience! As a MUA doing my first shoot, I didn't know much about photography, but John's knowledge and ideas are extremely inspiring, and were delivered in a way even I can understand. I would 100% recommend The Gray Room to anyone; professional and a lovely clean, modern layout with loads of natural light. I'm more than happy to be returning next week. If you ever get the opportunity to shoot/model here you won't be disappointed.
