Narroway Studio is a creative food space and daylight photography studio in the heart of Hackney. It is a collaboration between photographer Issy Croker, stylist and art director Emily Ezekiel & food writer and stylist Anna Jones, who have been working in food and the visual arts for over a decade.

The studio is a 550sqft flexible space, with a beautiful but homely kitchen at its heart. For photography the studio works for still life, portraiture and film. It is also a perfect space for small supper clubs, launches and workshops.

Narroway Studio has everything you need: an incredibly well equipped kitchen, a large dining table, a work area with a desk and and comfy chairs, four large north facing windows and freestanding shelves for easy prop storage.

The studio overlooks St John of Hackney church and its gardens, a welcome wash of green in the middle of the city. There is an array of local independent food producers as well as supermarkets (Sainsbury’s, Tesco and M&S) nearby for all those last minute essentials. As well as a wide selection of restaurants and cafes for lunch, many of which deliver.

Narroway Studio is only a five minute walk from Hackney Central and Hackney Downs stations, and there are also very affordable parking spaces in the St John’s Church yard carpark.
