A labyrinth of dark, atmospheric landings lined with the original Victorian prison cells, light trickles down through the glass roof on the 3’s, illuminating the floors below and casting shadows all around.
The prison lends itself beautifully to a darker, gritty style of photography, utilising light and shadow to create some truly stunning images. Shepton Mallet Prison is a perfect backdrop for stylized photoshoots, for fashion, music, weddings, historical content or dramatized shoots. An authentic prison environment with a dark and macabre past, suitable for a huge variety of photography projects. The prison can accommodate shoots from 2 people, up to 200.
