About The Mill:
Our studio is located on the top floor of a 150 year old linen mill, just next to the Grand Canal in Harolds Cross.
Situated over the Poddle, the river that led to the founding, and naming, of Dublin (Dubh Linn – the ‘black pool’ where the Poddle entered the River Liffey) it was built in 1864 by some of Ireland’s early industrialists, and has a long history of fashion production stretching right through to the present day. The high ceilings and large windows both lend themselves to light control and mean that it is ideally suited for photographic purposes.
As a listed building of historical significance, our facility has a large goods lift for bring up equipment and props, and is possibly the only studio in Dublin that offers free parking to its customers. And don’t worry about access, enjoy the ease of free parking at a convenient location 5 minutes from the city centre and 10 minutes from Junction 11 on the M50.
Another advantage is our central heating system which ensures that talent stays warm and conversations don’t get frosty!
Large bright kitchen for catering & food styling.
As our primary focus is business and media, we provide plenty of space for creative teams to oversee the production of their shoots, allowing them to monitor proceedings without feeling like they are getting in the way of the creative process.
With panoramic views across Dublin city and mountains, and period architectural features, there is quite simply no other studio like it. Whether you are shooting anything from product to fashion photography, we have the perfect space for you.
Operating quietly since 2009, we have welcomed everyone from Oscar winners, to chart-toppers to sporting legends to our studio. Sticking mainly to the B2B marketplace, we conduct shoots for all manner of publication and end user. Its this variety of work that keeps things interesting and ensures that no two weeks are the same.
