I'm extremely happy with the photography & service provided by Ione at MindStudio. You went above & beyond to get what i wanted and surpassed my expectations by quite a margin. I know you provided a very high standard of service and it suited me perfectly. It was great to be able to be involved as much as I wanted to be. Ione's knowledge of photography and many other things was pivotal in helping me to get the look I was after and helped me with quite a few other things too,such as finding a good model and assisting in finding a great makeup artist. Your rates are fantastic and the whole experience was fun, creative & professional. I was nervous about this big step forward in my business & I felt very easy speaking with Ione about everything and asking questions and seeking opinions. I really feel like I "lucked out" finding Mindstudio first. The studio space is fantastic, the atmosphere was great and everyone worked hard. I can't thank you enough and look forward to working with you again with any new additions to my work.
Michael Ruthenbury - Penroll
MindStudio produced a great set of images to promote my product at an affordable price and with afast turnaround. During the photo shoot they were very helpful and intuitive and the post production process was efficient and communication was excelent so in the end i have a set of images that are exactely what i wanted and am very proud of.
Richard Plumb - Pluraweb.com
Ione did a shoot for a client of mine and helped us create images for the website we needed. Despite my clients years of experience this was our first online venture and Ione was pivotal in creating the right shots we needed to go online, he brought a great deal of knowledge, ideas and skill to the set.The client couldnt be more pleased and and will be using Ione again on the next shoot.
Mr and Mrs Yasin and Tahera Patel
MindStudio took photographs of our wedding and Ione was a brilliant photographer. He captured the special day, the beauty of the location, the happiness of all who attended and the laughter, smiles and joy of the day. His style and technique was easy and natural and he made all who attended feel comfortable and easy with the camera snapping away whilst they talked, smiled, laughed and enjoyed the day. Ione works with you to ensure that he produces photographs based upon your needs and style and he works naturally to ensure that photographs are taken around events as they happen rather then choreographing unnaturally. We would recommend Ione and MindStudio to anyone.

Mind Studios offer a really flexible service, brilliant rates and friendly staff. I highly recommend them.
Hayley Connelly - The Little Press
Mind studio is a fantastic space for shoots and sessions alike. We will keep returning with our bands!
Rosey Hocknell - Owner and designer of We Are Nativ
When approaching my first official photoshoot, I searched online for a studio intending to bring in my own photographer etc. I was incredibly lucky to come across Mind Studio, in particular Ione Green, and after a meeting at the studio I decided to use Ione as photographer and for him to help me to recruit the other participants. Ione did this very efficiently, with plenty of advice and guidance.
This was my first official photoshoot so I had no experience at all and felt a bit overwhelmed. Ione took the time to explain all the processes to me, he walked me through everything and in my opinion helped me beyond the call of duty, he helped to design the set and bring my ideas together.
The shoot was very slick and professional and I am overwhelmed with the wonderful quality of the shots, the clothes look amazing in the catalogue section and the creative shots capture the mood of the label perfectly.
The studio itself is a fantastic space, the layout worked very well and the set up was well managed and organised. Ione is a pleasure to work with and I look forward to forging a long working relationship between Mind Studio and We Are Nativ.

Thanks for a great session on Saturday, I certainly learnt a lot. The model you sourced was great and the content of the day and your delivery were fantastic. I’ll be back soon for another session.
Thanks for the links
Niranjan - Barcap trainee member
Barclays corporate training
Just to say that I found the course excellent and would not hesitate to recommend it to others. A very good introduction to a subject that really mystified me. I’m confident enough now to use shutter, aperture and full manual mode with more frequency. Found Ione to be very knowledgeable (and patient!) with a good delivery style.
Chris Mear - Owner at Right Connection Recruitment Ltd
Once again a big thanks to Ione and the team at Mindstudio. You have done a great job as always and the photos look great on our website. Thanks again – until next time…”
Ione is one of the best photographers I have worked with. The work he has done for my jewellery shoots is beyond comparable. My pieces tend to speak for themselves, but the way he has photographed them has given them that extra life
Rajvi Vora - Owner of Kastur Jewels
Robert Dengue - Professional photographer
What a lovely place, loads of natural light and space. Nice selection of gear too. And the service is very friendly as well.
Definitely recommend them!

Pandora's Thoughts - Studio hire
Hi Ione! Not sure if you remember us (probably not, I imagine your studio has quite a lot of bookings!), but we hired out your studio at the beginning of March for a Sportswear shoot.
We were really impressed with your set up and vast lighting equipment available, and so would like to hire out your studio again at the beginning of May...." "...Look forward to hearing from you and hopefull shooting at Mind Studio again very soon.
David Willis - Professional Makeup Artist
Hi Ione, i have had a chance to look at all the images from the zoo shoot and they are FANTASTIC, you are so talented and i love each and every one of them there great!!!!!
hope i can have the chance to work with you again soon, i would also like to speak to you soon with regards to my website, (need your help)
Dom & Rachel - Trainee photographers
We really enjoyed the Improving Your Photography course. Ione's training style is great, very clear, very focused and his enthusiasm is really motivating.
We picked up some really good tips from both the theory and practical sections and the take away notes will be a really good resource. Shame we didn't have longer to spend with him.
Maybe we'll be back again after we've had some time to practice
I just wanted to say how perfect everything was yesterday at the studio and to say a big thank you for arranging cover on a Sunday.
We got loads of great pictures and everyone had a good time in the process! We were all really impressed with the space, the equipment made available to us and in particular to Ed.
He was absolutely brilliant, so helpful and knowledgeable.
One of the team let us down on the day and we most certainly wouldn't have got all the shots we needed without his assistance.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending your studio to both friends and colleagues and I will certainly be looking to using it again in the future, such a lovely chilled out space and really good value for money.
Thank you once again.
Best wishes Lindsay Schofield
Joanne McLean, Creative Director, Cassius Management
I would like to thank the guys at Mind-Studio for an incredible job in creating a promotional shot which knocks the socks off all those who see it. We had a short time to make something amazing and we provided with a great idea, our location was sorted for us and we found the added energy and commitment from the team made the shoot great fun for all.
Since our shot was adventurous we benefited from the amazing Photo-shop skills to create a shot that has fantasy, depth and excitement. I would recommend to anyone looking for added creativity and a team who will go the extra mile great work.
Darren Ladburg - Director of Photography
The staff were absolutely brilliant Very helpful & cheerful.
Capone Law - Singer

Alexandra Graham - Actress
As an actor, it's vital that you get the right headshots from someone who knows how to shoot you instinctively AND can get great results for a good price. Ione has always given me great quality pictures which are eye-grabbing and amazing-looking.
The great professionalism of his means that you're always at your ease when working with him. He's always my first port of call when I need great photos!
Katie Oliver - BBC Producer
I hope you're well and not working toooo hard. I've been meaning to email you for ages now to say a very BIG thank you for all your help in making our surprise filming with The Saturdays and TMiers go so well last week. I was filming in Scotland last week and didn't have much of a chance to get on email I'm afraid. We're all really pleased with how it went and the location was fab and eveyone from Mindstudio was so helpful.
Please pass along our thanks to everyone who was involved - and being so accommodating when we had to change the place we were going to film the surprise in etc. Thanks so much for sending through these retouched images. They look fab. I've downloaded them all no probs and just editing with them now.
Thanks so much again for all of your hard work on this project,
Flavilla Fongang – Image Consultant
In business, I’m very exigent and I needed to work with a company that could fulfil my requirements. Mindstudio understood clearly my vision and the image I wanted to portray through 3 Colours Rule website.
They designed an incredible website and I’m more than happy with the results. So I dare you to challenge them, you won’t be disappointed.
Miriam – Aspiring model
Hi Ione, thanks a lot for the great experience at mind studio and for the retouched pictures...they are fantastic!
Take care Miriam
The photo-shoot went very well! Ione & Ian made me feel comfortable and I really enjoyed the experience. From start to finish Ian & Ione were professional, friendly and made the shoot fun! They took the stress and worry out of what could be a scary experience and replaced it with two fun hours that whizzed by.
They produced some really fabulous shots. The photographers gave good and helpful advice in creating great photographs. I was very impressed with the standard of the photographs that were sent to me. I'm really happy with the pictures.
Thank you very much for all you've done for me.
Winnie - Model
This is my second time using MindStudio to build my modelling portfolio. Ione is such an amazing photographer who knows what he is doing.
Working with MindStudio has been an amazing experience. They are very creative, understanding and try their best to create the types of look you are trying to go for. I will be more than willing to work with MindStudio again in the future.
Maryam + James Photographers
Thank you once again for letting us use your studio. We always have a fantastic time taking photos at MindStudio and always leave feeling inspired (: You guys are always so friendly and helpful which means our photos have got better with each shoot (at least we think so!).
Through working at your studio both James and I have gained confidence in our Photography and are coming up with all sorts of ideas for shoots.
Thanks again (: Hopefully we'll see you soon!
Jenny Murray - Marketing Manager at Altitude SW1
Mindstudio provided excellent and friendly support from start to finish, from advising the most efficient and effective way to shoot a very complicated brief, through to complete after sales care in providing the exact images I requested. Not to mention the stunning shots! I highly recommend them!
Eren Ozkural - Music Video Director/Photographer
I could not fault a single aspect of MindStudio. The facilities were spacious, the equipment was top tier and the props were varied.
Above all else, the service that Ione provided was second to none; an aspect that I have found lacking in most other studios.
Simply put, I will be coming back to Mind Studios as often as possible.
Dannique Blake - Make Up Artist
My shoot with Ian and Ione was very relaxing and fun. They created a great atmosphere and put me at ease from the very moment I arrived at the studio. The studio is wonderfully kept and the vibrant energy keeps your creative juices flowing. Both photographers are professional and easy to work with. I had an amazing day and my photos are great. Thank you so much for helping to get my portfolio into great shape. Good Luck for the future Dannique.

Singers promo shots
When I was looking for a photo studio I browsed the internet and found several studios that seemed to offer what I needed but I particularly liked how the guys at MindStudio described the way they work and of course, there were some fantastic photos on their site. What a great choice I made. I had the best time during the shoot and am absolutely thrilled with the resulting photos. Many thanks to Ian and his team for a completely relaxing
Lynne Hithot Ltd. - Line Dancing Guru
Shoot for DVD cover
Looking for a photographic team that I felt I could trust when researching for my DVD cover was serious business. Choosing Ian and Ione to take this all important photograph was one of my best decisions ever!
The photos were so good I had a real hard time deciding what to use. (I am a very decisive person usually). Nothing was too much trouble for these guys - they went out of their way to understand my brief, were hugely generous and giving, and delivered exactly what I had asked for.
I will not hesitate in using Mind Studio's again.
Gemma Birch - Model
Hey I can't wait to see the pics. Very glad everyones happy I had so much fun that day. It's the best time I've ever had at a shoot. I wish all photographers were like you and your colleagues.
John-Paul R n B Singer
Bro, Thanks for such an awesome shoot. You're a talented dude.
Nina S. Miller - Wellness Entrepreneur
A thousand thank yous and big hugs to you for the FANTASTIC job you have done with my photos! They are amazing – you should have just heard the scream that came out of my mouth when I saw them! They have surpassed my expectations and are exactly what I wanted, in terms of the creative style and professional image that I want to portray on my website. The whole experience working on the shoot was very enjoyable too, and very exciting for somebody like myself who has never had any major involvement in creative/artistic fields.
You are a star and I REALLY appreciate you getting these turned around in such a short time frame.
Kerry Ellis - Actress ('Elphaba' from Wicked the Musical)

We just wanted to say how fantastic Ian and Ione was on our look book project in January.
We were so pleased to have the guys look after our project in a way that was completely stress free and professional. The end result was really great, we were spoilt for choice when it came to selecting the images!
Thanks again to Ian and Ione for the best shoot we've experienced so far!
It was a pleasure.

Pari Taylor - Stylist
I worked with Ian and Ione for my first shoot as a fashion stylist. I am just starting out, so it was a pleasure to work with two people that not only knew what they were doing but could help me turn my visions into reality.
Both Ian and Ione are very relaxed and easy to work with, the whole team on the day were fantasic and I would work with them again in a heart beat.
Also the most important thing is the shots that I got back were brilliant! Thanks guy's and good luck!

Studio hire & assisting
It was really great and I enjoyed every minute.
I want to personally thank you for your assistance on the night, it was a great learning experience your help in the lighting design improved on the quality of the previous work I've done (not to mention showing me the image zoom on my own camera that I didn't realize was there. I really should read the manual).
I'll be back in the new year and look forward to seeing you and Ione again
have a great month
Neil Allgood - Head of Barclays Camera club
Photography and Studio Training
I’d like to say a big thank you for providing a relaxed but professional training session in a really super studio during which I (and the others on the course) learnt a fantastic amount about lighting and light manipulation.
I also gained a great deal of confidence for shooting in a studio environment and I have now gone on to shoot in other studio environments and feel much more comfortable directing the models.
Speaking of models, the ones selected for the training session were great, and I now have some really excellent shots to begin my portfolio.
I’ll be looking to use MindStudio again (and again)”
Chris Mear - Owner at Right Connection Recruitment

Mindstudio were excellent. Really helpful, very professional and above all their work was excellent. I have recommended them to several of the companies I work with and will definitely use them again in the future.
Good luck and look forward to working with you next time.
Jeshan & Monika
We would like to thank Ione for the great service and lovely photographs he captured on our wedding day. Professionalism, and friendliness made us feel relaxed although there was raining just before our ceremony. Fortunately Ione was fully prepared for any kind of weather and situation.
It was great to get back from honeymoon and look at the lovely photos he had taken.
We cannot recommend him highly enough.

Miriam Mica - Menta Health Promotion Co-ordinator, NHS
A last minute request to you was dealt with really efficiently - very reassuring and you did exactly what you committed to. You captured our public event to promote mental health and well being from start to finish, giving a real sense of the day through some fantastic, clear images with superb quality and attention to detail. The photographer worked in a way that really respected people and situations - quietly and unobtrusively. Thankyou for recording a diverse,happy day and contributing to its success.
Anthony - Photographer
Just wanted to make an addition to my comments of Saturday’s course.
Since going home I have had a chance to view the images I took on my computer, I can open the same image 50 times and still be amazed at what I achieved.
The day was great and the models supplied were excellent.
Even the input i got whilst not shooting was a great advantage and valuable, Ione’s Input was clear and direct and I now feel I can go into a studio with confidence and not arrogance ;-) I can say this now as I have completed the course ‘I would have happily paid double the cost’ – and you can quote me.
I still cant believe I was doing the ‘tea pot’ pose ,just goes to show how away from yourself you go when having a great time.
Thanks a lot guys and I look forward to more lessons with you soon
Hans Mills - Photographer
Very wonderful staff to work with. Excelent service provided for clients.

Thank you very much , I have to say the images are absolutely amazing! Very nice, MindStudio is one of the best studios I've ever worked with and I hope we can do additional projects in the future.
Simon Wegrzyn - Producer
Thank you for a great space, the shoot was brilliant.
I will forward you the link to our final trailer!
The staff were really helpful on the day.
I've been asked to film another trailer and will ring you when more details come through.
Dr Even - Musician/Composer
The experience at MindStudio has been very fine, all the guys were friendly and professional at the same time.
They told me: "We want you to go away from here with a big smile on your face..." and so it has been!
They have many ideas and they work hard until they achieve very good results, and this is the right approach for a shoot.
I really recommend them.
Jon Justice - Director/Producer
I'd just like to say thank you so very much for your kind help and support in getting our video shoot completed today. I really enjoyed working in your studio and I'm very impressed with your facilities and staff.
I was very impressed with the diplomacy and tact with which you
handled everything. Indeed, all our cast and crew felt very welcome and had a thoroughly good time at the studio, for which I am very grateful.
I've shot at film studios and used production facilities all around the world and have rarely come across one that can match you in terms of friendly service, assistance and support.
I will not hesitate to recommend you to friends and colleagues. In the past I've paid out a lot more money for much less friendly surroundings. Heck, I've used back-lots costing upwards of 30K a day and been less welcome.
So I'd just like to re-iterate my expression of gratitude and appreciation for your facilities and staff. You guys fucking rock.
Maryam & James – Photographers
This is just a quick note to say thank you for letting us use the Studio last weekend. It was a hectic shoot and I don't think me, James or Lauren got a break the entire 4 hours but it was well worth it. We got some really good shots out of it. I have attached a couple for you guys to see (:
We also have a website up now (http://jamphotos.net) where all our past work is.
Thanks again for letting us use your studio. It's always a pleasure to work there and we really appreciate all you guys have done to help us.
We have both grown as photographers since the first time we used Mindstudios a year ago and look forward to future projects there! (:
Maryam (and James)
Steph and Penny (Mother/Daughter portraits)
We weren't certain what to expect at the photoshoot as we've never done one before but it was such a fun experience. Ione made us feel really comfortable and the final photos are fabulous! We are thrilled with them and they will be a lasting great memory of my mom's visit to London.
Have a great weekend!
Annie Shah - Makeup Artist
Ione and Ian are two of the most amazing photographers i have ever worked with. I highly recommend them, they have great skills and talent. I wish them lots of luck and success and hope to work with them again."
Flavilla Fongang - Image Consultant
There is nothing better than working with a company that provides each time an outstanding service.
They have a great sense of creativity and an incredible attention to details.
I contacted them for a photoshoot and with them it became a real work of art. I am still impressed with the results we obtained.
They also did my website, and their marketing background helped me appropriately design my website.
I love the fact that they get involved and really want to make sure you are satisfied with the results.
The most genuine, patient persons to work with.
Do not hesitate a second to work with them, 100% SATISFACTION
Albina Hiorns - Model
Lingerie/Beauty/Fine Art Portfolio
I had the most professional, fun and creative test shoot at MindStudio at the end of which I was left with amazing images for my portfolio. Ione is one of the most pleasant, friendly, cute and helpful photographers I have ever worked with. I would recommend anyone to use MindStudio services!
Phil Macleod - Photographer
Tuition / Studio Lighting / Post production
Many thanks to Mind Studio for the excellent training day, I found it really enjoyable, and educational.
To work with a company that arranged everything for me, including the ordering of lunch, while i focussed on the photography was excellent.
Ione is without doubt a perfectionist, and to spend time discussing lighting set-up and techniques, that we then put into practice was very insightful into the world of professional photography techniques.
The way that Ione was always there, but never intrusive with his help and guidance made the day and the learning experience all the better.
Once we had finished shooting the wonderful model that they had arranged, we started looking at the post production techniques, where I was amazed at how quickly and easily he achieved results. It took me way too long, but at least I have walked away with a set of stunning images, and the knowledge of how to improve them (thanks to the cheat sheet!!).
I would highly recommend the course to any of my photography friends and colleagues, and I am sure that we will have another session shortly.
It was my first time in a professional photography studio, and so I was quite nervous at first. However, the friendly and professional staff helped put me at ease. I enjoyed the photoshoot more than I thought I would. The high standards of the finished results have made me a very happy customer. I will certainly be going back to Mind Studios again in the future if I need any more photos done. And next time I will know what to expect, so I imagine that the results will be even better. I have just started my portfolio. And through using Mind Studios, I will be able to gain a very professional and varied collection of photos. All at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.
Ben Langdon - Photographer
Thank you for the brilliant training the other day, you explained everything really well and answered a lot questions i have been meaning to find out for ages. I am already putting what i learnt into practice with good effect, so thanks a lot
Monica Iconica - Singer
The pictures taken for me at mindstudio were beyond what i ever imagined - they were slick, quirky, sharp and interesting to look at with great use of light and of colours. Ione was a true professional and he was able to draw out from me my personality and attitude, which has been difficult in the past with other photographers, but which he was able to capture and is evident in my pictures.
If you're someone looking for an outstanding experience, then Mindstudio is highly recommended.
