The Studios

Firefly Photography has two studios: one based in Derby city centre (DE1 1EX) and one based at Curborough Countryside Centre (WS13 8ES) .

Derby enjoyed a £50,000 refurbishment in 2016 allowing for a multi-purpose, disabled friendly space including viewing rooms; client lounge; makeover room; toilet with baby change and studio with it’s own rig of lights attached to it’s 7metre high ceiling! With a range of coloured backdrops as well as designed sets we’re able to offer all of our clients a range styles and finishes to enable photography tailored to every style, want and need. This versatile space has also leant itself to commercial work and has even housed a Harley Davidson as a “prop” to be used in Makeover & Boudoir shoots!

Lichfield was opened in 2016 at the wonderful Curborough Countryside Centre. This boutique style studio is able to offer a personal service similar to the Derby studio in a more intimate, out of city based setting. Just like Derby, this studio houses a viewing room; toilet with baby change; makeover room and studio. Our studio has a range of backdrops and coloured backgrounds which are becoming a firm fave with our new friends in Staffordshire! Please be aware that access, to this studio, is up an external flight of stairs and is housed in a converted barn.

James and the team are proud of the friendly and professional reputation it has grown to have across Derbyshire and Staffordshire and look forward to welcoming all clients (new and returning!) through their doors.
