Our Gear

Wherever you are on your photographic journey, we have the tool for you.

In fact, our collection of gear will probably mirror your journey through light. Starting with natural light which we have in abundance, to cheap eBay flashes all the way throught to the very latest from the Rollsroyce of lighting: Broncolor.

For those of you who don’t know, Amersham Studios is owned by the team behind international photography magazine Inmybag. Inmybag shares fascinating insights from the world’s most inspiring photographers and has the world’s only searchable database of both photographers and gear.

So here’s our philosophy…

A PHOTOGRAPHERS GREATEST ASSET IS THEIR VISION & CREATIVITY, BUT HEY, IT’S GREAT FUN TO HAVE ALL THE BEST GEAR TO PLAY WITH, ESPECIALLY IF YOU DON’T HAVE TO PAY FOR IT 😉

Photography should be accessible to all and we embrace that at all levels.

You can create amazing images with ANY camera, so we start with courses about getting great results from your smartphone, it’s made simple and open to everyone, even your nan!

To prove a point, I shot this locally with an iPhone 5 in near darkness…

Honerable Mention in 'Landscape'

We promote the use of cheap eBay flashes and even run a course based on the premise that you can get an entire cheap lighting setup for the price of a single Nikon or Canon speed light. I assure you that you’ll be blown away with the results you can achieve with this cheap gear and Andrew Appleton’s course on how to get great results from it.

Here’s an example…
