Studio Equipment

On this page you will find a fairly concise list of the equipment available when renting from Studio Hire Plymouth.

We also have a small selection of specialist / unusual equipment for hire including a ring flash, optical snoot and HD projector.

Please note that the equipment list is subject to change at any time. If there is anything shown below that you specifically want or need for your studio session please let us know at the time of booking.

Flash Heads

Flash Heads

At the studio, we use Godox QT flash heads for reliability and consistency of power and colour.

The current line-up consists of 8x600w flash heads.

If you do not have your own light triggers, we're more than happy for you to use the ones we have at the studio - These are compatible with most cameras that have a normal hotshoe.

Other Modifiers

Other Modifiers

Reflectors, Diffusers & Flags

Various reflectors, diffusers and flags are available, from 40cm up to 240cm in a range of colours and finishes (black, white, silver, gold, grey, opaque and chromakey blue).

There are also 2 very large polyboards - black on one side and white on the other. These are the standard 240cm high by 120cm wide.

Wind Machine

Wind Machine

The wind machine gives you the chance to add some drama and movement to your images.

With stepless adjustment ranging from a gentle breeze up to a gentle tornado, you get just the effect required.

It's a very directional flow of air created from this very heavy piece of equipment. It will fit on to all of the studio lighting stands or can be hand-held for ultimate control.

Parallel Boom

Parallel Boom

The parallel boom is a firm favourite at the studio, allowing shots simply not possible with normal lighting stands.

This is a very large piece of equipment, meaning that the stand itself stays out of the way whilst you bring your light of choice above / in front of your subject.

This stand can also be used as camera boom, great for product photography or photographing a model directly from above.

Product Tables

Product Tables

Perfect for anyone needing to photograph products for eCommerce stores without the need to remove shadows in post production.

There are 2 tables available, a small one measuring 60cm wide by 130cm long suitable for most applications. Plus a larger 1m wide by 2m long version which is big enough to deal with even large products.

Please note: These are stored flat at the studio - You will need to request the use of these prior to the day of your booking.

Take a look at our product photography gallery for a selection of example images.

Colorama Paper Backdrops

Colorama Paper Backdrops

7 rolls of Colorama paper are always on the wall at the studio. The current line-up is shown in the image above: royal purple, mandarin orange, buttercup yellow, rose pink, cherry red, storm grey and ultra black. Other colours such as chromakey green, chromakey blue, peat brown, larkspur, sky blue, oyster and sea mist are also stocked in a mixture of widths.

All rolls are aluminium cored and weighted to prevent the common issue of warped, creased and rippled paper that you may have seen at other studios.

Please note: If you would like to use different colours or your own paper backdrops this will need to be requested prior to the day of your booking. Any paper which is damaged or made dirty will be charged for by the metre.
