I’m very much more of a travel and landscape photographer than anything else. So when I was recently asked to create some studio portraits and product images we thought it would be a great opportunity to make a quick, stop motion video so you can take a peek at our setup. If possible I prefer to setup my studio the night before the scheduled session that way on the day of the shoot I can just tweak things as needed. There did end up being quite a few changes from this original setup but it can still give you a good idea of how things look around here on a studio day.
- Canon 20D
- Canon EFS 17-85mm lens
- Manfrotto 055C tripod
- Manfrotto 028 tripod head
- Manfrotto background kit
- 9 foot white seamless
- 2 Alien Bees B800
- 2 Aurora Lite Bank Genesis G-400
- 1 Aurora Lite Bank Genesis G-800
- Small soft box
- Large soft box
- Pocket Wizards
Plus a collection of stands and cables.
Which do you prefer, polished studio photographs or natural location images?
I’ll see you in the comments section!

I love natural locations images but then I do not have a studio set up! Thanks for the video.
I’m honoured you liked the video Ashleigh! It really doesn’t need to take much to set up, in fact often we set up a natural light studio.
