The Barracks Studio

About us


The Barracks is a small photographic and video studio available for wet or dry hire on the outskirts of Edinburgh



Newbattle Abbey College, 5 mins from the city bypass, once a monestary, is now a rural skills and languages college set in a delightful 18th Century building. In the grounds, in 1937, the army built a barracks ( can you see where we're going here?) which is now rather vaingloriously referred to a business park! We're in unit 13C.

There's easy access, parking right outside, and...we're on the ground floor!


What we do

Wet hire


Hire the Barracks complete with in house photographer Tina Sorensen..for a one stop shop. 






Dry hire


Just hire the studio on its own for as little as £100/day



Photographers key hire


This is what makes us different. We invite photographers with bigger projects in hand, to rent the Barracks for a month or morer  at a time.

''We booked The Barracks along with photographer, Tina, for a fashion photoshoot in December 2020. It was easily accessible from The Borders and we were able to park right outside. Being on ground level meant we didn't have to heave bags and suitcases up stairs! The lovely Tina met us with a smile and a cup of tea and was a treat to work with. The studio is deceivingly spacious, allowing us three different backdrops to work with and a nice 'break-out' room for between shots or for models to change in. The results were fabulous and can't wait to see them on our new website''
