Welcome to Velvet Goldmine Studio

Velvet Goldmine Studio opened in Spring 2011 in the North Laine, the creative heart of Brighton, Sussex. Our unique studio is decked out with red velvet finery which can be stripped back to blank white walls if desired. We have Bowens lights, various modifiers and coloramas, so is ideal for a wide range of photography or video use and available to hire at only £25ph.

Under the creative management of Award Winning photographer Philip J. Bigg, a mature and skilled practitioner who has made his name as a People Photography with the enviable ability to both connect with people and capture the essence of character.

Philip’s Commercial Photographic images are regularly used for advertising purposes by print and web based media. Over the past few months alone, Philip has worked with Lumesse, Nice Media and Cognify shooting photography campaigns for Lloyds Bank, Vodafone, Nat West, Network Rail, B&Q, Wragge & Co. and the Crown Prosecution Service.

Philip brings his charismatic, fun, lust for life personality to each shoot producing funky Portraits of individuals, families, pregnancy bumps, actor headshots and model portfolios. Recent Portrait visitors include Brighton based Kate Magic (founder of Raw Living) and marketing consultant Shauna di Bella who wrote – “ALL CREDIT TO YOU. You are good. Even my husband commented!”

Please visit the Galleries to view recent examples of Philip’s photography.
