Steve Russell Studios

Steve Russell Studios, over the past 25 years, have built an enviable reputation as the photographers of choice to many of the most celebrated contemporary artists and galleries in the UK and internationally.

This success has given Steve Russell Studios the opportunity to invest in the latest equipment and to develop new techniques for producing the remarkable and creative imagery for which we are renowned. Saving on photographic budgets is a false economy: good photography is so important that it should be seen as an investment, not as a cost.

This website offers an insight into our technical expertise and range of services, while photines.com showcases Steve’s own creative work and artistic projects as well as the work of other acclaimed artists.

Steve Russell Studios Photography

Steve Russell Studios will document and record commissions anywhere in the world, photographing all aspects of the making of the artwork right up to final installation. We always deliver on budget, no matter what the destination.

The studio uses the latest Hasselblad medium format digital cameras capable of shooting a 200MP file, producing a 650MB image, and a broad range of lenses including the latest 28mm wide angle and Hasselblad’s sharpest lens, the 120mm macro.

We shoot for museums, galleries, artists, magazines, publishers, art projects, installations and much more.


Our 1500sq ft studio and gallery space is based in the Cotswolds, near the market towns of Nailsworth and Stroud. The studio is equipped with state-of-the-art Hasselblad and Canon cameras, Bowens electronic flash, coupled with Phocus and Adobe software on Apple Mac and Windows, ensuring smooth workflow and compatibility. On site we use lifting equipment for photographing large works and the studio is fitted with a roller shutter door for easy access.

We have extensive experience of working on location at artists’ studios, foundries, galleries, on specialist installation projects and in sculpture gardens and parks. Our overriding priority is to seek the best possible way to capture and present the finest quality works of art across all media.
