Nepenthe Studios provide Video Production, Audio Recording & Photography Services : we film or record on location.


Nepenthe Studios Ltd was incorporated as a limited company and started trading in 2006. The studio was originally located in Northamptonshire, but these premises closed in January 2018. Having closed the limited company and relocated to the Highlands, we now travel and work out of Drumnadrochit, Inverness-shire. It has been and remains a family run business with a professional outlook.
