Kube Studios London

Kube Studios London 

Kube Studios have studios throughout the country but our flagship studio is located in London's Fitzrovia. The studios comprise state of the art cameras and lighting systems and are staffed by industry professionals. We are located minutes from Oxford Circus and Oxford Street's incredible shopping opportunities. Whether you are considering booking in for a family shoot, a make over, or a modelling portfolio shoot, there are some fundamentals that you should consider before your arrival. 

Believe it or not, many customers arrive at the studios unsure of what they want to leave with! The first thing to consider is what you want to be photographed wearing. This leads us to think about what the purpose of the photography shoot is. Are you intending to use it for professional purposes, or just looking for a great memento of a point in your life. If you are intending on making a fashion modelling portfolio, your outfit choices are extremely important.

A Kube Studios fashion modelling portfolio shoot is generally booked for a morning or an afternoon and allows enough time for several outfit changes and looks. You would do well to plan these things well before hand and even bring examples from magazines or the internet to guide the photographers on what you are after. Every modelling portfolio needs some staple shots. These are full body and head shots and these will always be prioritised for each look.

How many photos does a portfolio contain? This depends. If you put yourself in the position of a busy modelling scout or agency executive, how many photos from each candidate would you review before making a decision? The consensus seems to be that between 8 and 20 shots is ideal, any more and it won't be looked at, any fewer and they will ask questions. This being said, if you only have 4 fantastic shots, and 8 that aren't bad, just use the 4. A little bit of gold is worth more than a lot of silver!

Kube Studios: Comfort Eating

Kube Studios Lifestyle Tips

At this time of year especially, comfort eating is a strong urge for all of us. The early evenings and dark, cold mornings set our bodies craving fast sugars and stodgy calories. Here are some tips from Kube Studios to help minimise the cravings and maintain control over your weight and figure.

The first thing to tell yourself is to be realistic. We're not talking about avoiding all comfort foods, but reducing the cravings that we get at certain times of the day, often when we don't need to eat like before bed or when at rest. Having a fibre filled diet is great for this. It releases energy slowly all the way through the digestive system rather than giving short bursts, such as we get from sugar. The constant up and down of blood sugar levels causes mayhem in our systems and in the long term can cause type 2 diabetes. Fiber helps you stay feeling full and releases enough power to keep you going during extended periods between meals.

Making sure you eat regularly is great for the brain. If your eating habits are irregular your body doesn't know when to expect more energy and will crave junk. It's actually proven that if we don't eat breakfast, by the end of the day we are more likely to eat junk food. Eating regularly helps your body control sugar levels which in turn controls the likelihood it is to lay down fat.

Kube Studios endorse healthy diets and hope that these little lifestyle tips are useful. To find out more about our photography studios watch this video.
