 ^  LOL .... (hiding in the bushes) :D

 

 can I suggest an easier way is if you know a day there will be a group shoot, get a job delivering pizzas at the Dominos in Kent.

 

 I know where the house is though because I'm considering sending some leotards and other clothes there.  I sent in leotards and clothes before, way back when when it was a different studio.  A lot of the leotards like the yellow, the red, the dark-green, and the orange came from me !

 there is also a separate office from the studio in the area nearby too.

 

 Would be quite something though one day, to see Abigail, Maria, Kay, Saffron, Jo, etc... all pulling up and getting ready to shoot.  Would be quite cute.  Perhaps though you would not even realize it at first if you just saw them all at the train station though in their street clothes.  A lot of the models tend to look a bit different out of the studio format.

 ^ LOL, no... but OAS needs a pair of the new orange Hooters modern-style "dolphin shorts"  The style used now is what Hooters girls wore back in the 80s !

 

    Here's a pic of the house too... been looking at the floor-plan on the property listings too... It's massive !

Is this still the house with the stables ? Were they here in 2011 ? (That's when they did the christmas caroling outside with Elle Richie ) . Lets see if Paul takes it down when he sees it I'm thinking about the cost to heat such a big old house in winter .

 ^  It was a different studio prior to 2016.  I actually think they change up the studio and rent a new place every 2 years or so...

I'm reading one of the profiles for the current house though...it comes with a bunch of outbuildings around a courtyard, and a detached timber cowshed with two stables.  It also has what looks like bascially a 2nd guest house, listed as a "single story outbuilding."  The grounds are quite substantial; and they also list coming with a lot of dramatic panaoramic views of the surrounding countryside, a big garden area, and a sunken grotto with an ornamental pond.

 The house also has 7 bedrooms; 5 on the 2nd floor and 2 on the 3rd floor (the wardrobe area and changing area, I guess !)  The 2nd floor also has it's own bathroom and kitchen.  The first floor has two reception rooms and a "sitting room" (quite posh) !

 

 The house seems available on a lot of listings and profiles.  I just put a little pic of it; shouldn't be a big deal.

 Went ahead and took the pic down... it seemed pretty easy to follow by a "Google search for this image" and I don't want to get told off over it !  The studio is amazing though... I'd love to see it one day (but I bet they'll change houses again before too long.  They did do a lot of work putting in new settings in lots of the rooms last year though, so they may stay there for a while.

 I also think too that they change up the house every 2 or 3 years, not only to get new settings but also to make it tough on the would-be gawkers and the like.

"Different studio prior to 2016"  , no I don't think so . IC will know for sure . Isn't the house before this one , the house that Bryoni Kate shows in her podcast of 2009 ? They did the 10 girl shoot with big panorama in 2012 , I thought it was the current one.  I don't get it , how can you read the listings and details of the house , shouldn't that only be possible when it is on the market for rent or sale ?

 No, I'm very sure it was a different house prior to 2015.  Different address then.  The one BK did in her OT podcast video may have been 4 or 5 houses ago !  They move to rent a new studio every 2 or 3 years.

 Also, a lot of the house sites show listings of all the houses regardless.  The OT house honeslty does seem to be very high-profile.  It was listed on the main agency that represents it as a very upscale listing... this is why I think a profile of it is on there all the time.  I saw the house on 3 or 4 other home-listing directories though.

Well those decorators did a very good job then ( Sarah already ?) , I didn't notice much difference in the backgrounds of the picture sets , and when I did I assumed that they remodelled like the office and kitchen . The furniture stayed the same as did the bed covers. 


About being able to see the details of a house that is not on the market , surprises me . I don't think they do that in my country .... privacy and such.

Hehe , you took the pic of the house down (or Paul), BB will be disappointed ! I saved it ofcourse.   You've given us so many clues , that if I wasn't so lazy and searched the house listings , I'd probably find it.

 Most of the backgrounds in the house were very plain and white in 2015-2016 (wasn't a fan of these settings too much)... In early 2017 though, the settings started to get very colorful with Sarah's remodelling work... The red upholstered study, the diner, the locker room, etc.

 They might be planning to stay at this current house for quite awhile, but like I said I do think they change up the settings every few years to get completely new backdrops and I guess if any obsessed person did feel like they wanted to try and start "hanging around."  Also too, they might want to avoid the really crazy stuff like a jealous boyfriend dropping by or something really crazy unfolding like the Holly Jade situation if the OAS house stayed too "fixed."

BigH - You edited a post above, which perhaps explained how it is you know where the OAS house is as well as somehow obtained a shot of it. I don't want to know an address or anything, but would love to see the house, just to see where the magic all happens. If you can, send me your picture of the house to this spare e-mail of mine rsgateway@gmail.com. That would be so cool.



Um, yeah, Wpg is cold. That plains climate where it ranges from -40 in winter and 100 in summer. I take it you're in a more southern region of the US, perhaps down between AZ and TX (both of which I've been to since my family used to travel to L.A. to visit my grandparents). If one drives south from Wpg, the first major city to be reached is Kansas City. It'd be cool if Houston gets an NHL team as the owner of the arena there wants, because back in the WHA days, the Houston Aeros and the Wpg Jets had a big rivalry. I take it you discovered the location of the video from looking at the corporate logos. I'm surprised @R2 didn't do that, which is part of the reason I posted the video. He used to pester me for such info.


Looking it up, the lowest temp on this day was -44. Perfect for appreciating the likes of Brooke.

 ^ I've never been that far north, not sure I want to either.  I was kind of curious about the baseball stadium since it looked about the size of a park for a AA team.  Wouldn't have known without the corporate logos on the buildings though...;-)

 It seems to me though if you drived south, the first major city you'd hit is Minneapolis ?  or Omaha.

Check your email though...;-)

 

 It's amazing, this house is practically it's own estate.  I loved these pics from BtS....

Yeah, Interstate 29 continues down through Fargo, Omaha, then Kansas City. Minnesota would require switching to I-94 at Fargo. Good eye, you have, about the baseball stadium. But the major teams are the CFL football Blue Bombers and the NHL Jets.



 


Wow, I got your message. Watch for a reply, if you use that e-mail for daily usage.


The two links hardly seem of the same house, not to mention the backyard featuring the babe etc. I'll go over what you provided more carefully later. And is the house for sale or lease now? I thought OAS owned it and was looking for another location sometime later but not right now.


Anyways, it's nice location and the pix really help make our hobby here seem more real. Thanks again.

Hey HT or BB : please send me the pics too , to this disposable address : lemongrassgarlic-ggvepx123@yahoo.com . The small one HT posted is not of the side of the house I have from the BTS pics.


@BB : I saw corporate logos in your video but as a non US or Canadian , I couldn't link those to a city.

 It was a different house back when Elle Richie shot that six girl shoot.  That was probably 2 houses ago actually.  In the last couple of years of the BTS pics they haven't shown the outside of the house hardly at all.  I'm sending the links to that email address above... you can see the stairwell is the same from the BTS pics to the pic that is there in the house profile.

 I'm pretty sure it's a lease too.

 There also are a bunch of different stairwells in the current OAS house too... (posh place !)

I doubt OAS is looking for a new location, what with just doing a lot of remodelling.  I bet they stay there for at least a couple more years after investing in this work to get the more interesting backdrops.

@BigH - Ok, so it's late, but I laffed upon seeing the above shot. So that's how they do it, huh? I assumed each (library, diner) was its own room. And it's surprising to see how little space each gets. One would expect Mike et al to feel too crowded, to avoid the other set showing up in the shots. Not to mention the videos. Shows how skilled he is that that doesn't happen and the results feel more spacious, like a whole set for each shoot.


Very cool.

 ^ It's interesting, in the floor plan of the house, there is a 2nd smaller kitchen on the 2nd floor that in the home-profile is meant to be used by the "au-pair" for her quarters...(again, posh place !)...

 When I first saw the new settings, I had assumed that perhaps they turned that smaller kitchen into the diner.  Perhaps though that little kitchen now serves as Kara's snack room ?

 Also, with the new settings, that red upholstery is just wall-paper and not actual upholstery.

 

 It also is quite a bit funny though how often Mike will show up in one of the sets.

Hey thanks for the links , HT ! Nice area . When I find some time , I'll see all of my (old) BTS pics again.  IC told us some time ago that there were more OAS houses over the years , didn't realise that there were that many.  They used to shoot more outside and those brick walls look very much alike .


^ Great pic of Danni B , and it shows that after we said the the b/w tiles didn't look good in the "library" , Sarah put that nicer looking one over it. @ BB : I think the little classroom corner is the crowdiest/smallest  , it certainly feels that way .


^ Mike turns up often in the dressing room .... lucky him !

You know, @R2 & @BigH, they must all be getting a kick outta our utter fascination with the discussion of the house and the shots above. As for the sets, I came to realize (likely after a closer look at a new Brooke shoot) that the library was, in fact, fake. Wallpaper books. So it now turns out the Red Room is also wallpaper. Pretty convincing, that.


@Sarah always does great stuff. Now I'm even more impressed. She hasn't dropped by in awhile to tell us about anything new.

In the old days, and the podcast house tour with Gemma Jack (BK) is evidence of this, the rooms were all dedicated to just one set and decorated accordingly.

However in more recent years OAS and Sarah have obviously realised that footprint is premium and that it is possible to take a room and create multiple backdrops within it, thus pretty much trebling or even quadrupling the number of backdrop/set options.

As I am always being told it is the models that are the most important aspect/subject of any set and the backdrops/props are there to 'support' themes, so the fact you guys have only just noticed that the library is actually fake books wallpaper, and other gimmicks that Sarah has used to simply provide an illusion speaks volumes about how they have managed the whole thing since refurbishment/makeover last year.

As for freehold .v. lease, all the studios/mansions that OAS have shot from over the years have been rented, so basically short-term leases/contracts (2 years average). I am sure a lot of the 'fixtures & fittings' for each studio has been on the fixed assets of the books but not the bricks and mortar of the buildings. This basically means that when they do want to move to another location they don't have to get bogged down in freehold transactions and can simply sign a new contract with another landlord/management company for a specific period of time, which I am sure provides more flexibility to the business going forward.

The downside to above is being able to find the 'right' new property that allows it to be used the way it always has, ie, as a studio for undertaking shoots of lovely models in various states of undress, and of course having all the facilities, indoor/outdoor, in nice quiet place that offers some privacy for the activities they are enagegd in.

There was talk last year they were hoping to move BUT that they just couldnt find right property so in order to spruce things up they decided to extend their time with the current mansion and do an 'internal makeover' to provide something new. Sarah has also indicated in the past that she would undertake a 6 monthly review of the backdrops/sets and consider new ideas to undertake further makeovers, as and when necessary to keep things fresh. She obviously does listen to feedback and ideas from the members, hence the library area getting new flooring to overlay the black and white tiles, to make it more appropriate.

Sometimes it's the little things that can make a BIG difference and keeping the photographers on their respective toes !!!

It is also much better for the models who do lots of return shoots to have new backdrops/sets to work with so they too don't get bored with the whole production line format of churning out content for all the OAS sites, incl LN & AL. I am sure this is also important to OT Productions as happy models produce great content.

I for one am very glad they don't undertake their shoots from a traditional studio located in a 'business park' or industrial location and have always opted for a proper house/mansion that has much more character, feel and vibe about it. Not to mention the very beautiful Kent countryside that always seems to surround all the studio/mansions they have, and continue to work from. This makes it so more real/authentic and provides a taste of what it is to be british with farms, countryside, livestock and greenery. Yep welcome to blighty one and all !!!

OK, just imagine same room with library set and diner set like with Daisy Rose in the sample imagine then try and re-imagine it with TWO models, and TWO photographers in same room shooting BOTH the diner and library sets at same time ...... now wouldn't that be just chaos for disaster and the BTS images of seeing both Mike and Steve or Jon attempting such a feat even more hilarious. Still the models could chat to each other from their respective different sets without having to shout or raise their voices.

@IC - Your post ^^^^ I agree w/everything in it. A real house makes for more interesting results, and keeps the photogs and the girls happy. And as you say, that keeps us happy. I've always thought @Sarah's set design efforts have been outstanding and now seeing w/what she's dealing it's even more noteworthy. It deserves credit that she listens to what we all (here, and prolly much more so in the members forum) suggest.


And because the Red Room is so convincing, I scouted around and found two shots, here and here, that when viewed at lower left along the baseboard, confirm the upholstery is fake. Wow, @Sarah scores again.

Bringing things back on topic 

https://twitter.com/GlamourTeaJames/status/956617723290800135

:-P

BTW

I haven't found the other British "softcore" nylon-lingerie site that is a direct competitor to the OT family (yet) ,and that you (IC) wouldn't mention a few weeks ago. It isn't PH4U & VF , they're not really softcore . And a lot of the British glamour sites are not nylon orientated like OT.

Still surprised you havent rumbled this ...... https://twitter.com/Allfetishforums .... HQ based in Netherlands but studio/models all based in Kent, UK

https://purpleport.com/portfolio/otmteresa/

Not sure myself if this is linked to above ..... https://twitter.com/fetish_requests ... but wouldn't surprise me.

PS. Never said I don't believe that it is a direct competitor but does operate in 'similar' stuff but maybe more niche/specific fetishes/preferences

Yes Daisy Rose . Hey I was pretty close and did have my glasses on  . 1 out of the 3 far Eastern looking active models and Danni B was on my mind ,shooting tomorrow , which is now today .

I already mentioned the faux brick wall and the faux padded room back in August  http://forums.onlytease.com/new-2017-backgrounds  but it's funny to see in HT's pic with Daisy , that they just put another cover over the tiled floor. Sarah didn't change the drapes that BB didn't like , and the irritating squeeking sofa ( at least in video's ) , is still there too.

Now thanks to HT's floor plans we know that there is even more room for backdrops , if they want to use those places, and it has been more than 6 months , Sarah ...

@ IC : Ok maybe not direct competitor but you said Dec 20th @3:55pm "No I am talking about softcore tease on same level as OAS"forums.onlytease.com/weekly-forum-update-thursday-14th-december-2017   Some of the sites you listed here ^ , seem to have some nice and interesting things but they are absolutely not on the same level as OAS . And they could do with a much better website design , again like OAS .

@R2 - Sorry to have somehow failed to notice your mention of the fake upholstery. And I've noticed the BUSY drapes are still around but I'm holding our girl @Sarah to her promise to eventually cycle them out the door. Must make Mike go cross-eyed shooting babes against that pattern.

^ There's so much information on the forum , that you easily forget or overlook things... I know I do , but I'm probably much older than you , but not as old as IC , because he's from the StoneAge .


Now here's a question/observation for IC . Your original Glamour report link www.youtube.com/channel/UCr8zpPbWJaljNKaSDIm-Lbg/videos , doesn't change much , does it. Still the same 20 video's. Although it's a great starting point to find other video's among those YT suggests. No wonder we go off topic again .
