Emma Dicken's Photography Studio

Emma Dicken had her very own Cabin Master photography studio installed at her home. She already knew of Cabin Master because of recommendations from fellow photographers. Cabin Master buildings are just as safe and sturdy as your house - perfect for using as work from home space. We caught up with Emma earlier this year to find out about her experience with us and see how she was finding working in her own creative space.

Why Choose Cabin Master For Your Photography Studio?

“I chose Cabin Master as they came highly recommended on a photographers forum I use. Simon originally came out to do a site survey and quotation, we found him very helpful and not at all pushy, he gave us the price there and then and left us to discuss it.  We also went to the Nottingham show site to have a look around the cabins which was very impressive and useful to see the different designs.”

How Do We Help You Decide On The Design?

“I found the design process really easy and I liked the fact that I could choose how many windows and doors to have and put them exactly where I wanted. I chose quite a large cabin (7m x 4m) so I could have a few different shooting areas. I have my white backdrop for families and have installed a roller system with three coloured backdrops, and I also have my beanbag for newborns.  As I had the walls painted white I also use the cabin wall and laminate floor as backdrops too. The 3D design was brilliant. I changed my mind several times with the doors and windows and Cabin Master were more than happy to make sure everything was exactly how I wanted it. We decided to put underfloor heating in our cabin and, as it is also fully insulated, this means the cabin heats up really quickly (essential if you are photographing newborns in winter!). This meant we had to delay the painter by a few weeks but it wasn’t an issue for Cabin Master and they booked him on a date that suited us."


"I like the fact that everything is included in the price (doors, windows, sockets, internal and external lights, even the skirting boards) there were no hidden costs! A couple of months after the cabin was installed I had a problem with the windows, none of them would shut properly, we had had the hottest summer in forever and I think something had expanded in the heat. I contacted Simon and he got a fitter to come out straight away and sort them out so I was very impressed with that. Also I had to apply for retrospective planning permission, the council were very fussy and needed several different plans sending through, Simon was really helpful and sent through everything I needed. I was particularly impressed with this as I’m sure a lot of companies would have charged for the extra work."

How Was The Cabin Master Experience?

"Everybody who comes into the cabin comments on how beautiful it is and I absolutely love the fact that I can now work from home. Because it is a separate building, I don’t have to have clients coming into the family home. I have sold one of the family cars as I no longer need to commute, which is a massive help to the family budget. I would recommend any photographer who is renting their space to look into getting their own cabin, and I would highly recommend Cabin Master."
