However you wind up using them, collapsible backdrops belong as one of the top ten essential tools you absolutely must have at your disposal at all times as a photographer, indoors or out, and they’re easy to use.
Are you the type of photographer that is set in your ways? While it’s important on the one hand to be able to produce consistent results, it’s also important to push your creativity to keep your work fresh and exciting. One such way I was able to do this was by using collapsible backdrops and photographing them with lower apertures.
Folding your collapsible backdrop only takes a moment, but it can be tricky on your first try! Follow these simple instructions for a perfect fold every time.
When you’re traveling as a photographer, unless you have a truck that carries your entire studio with you, considerations have to be made with regard to space and size that will greatly influence the kind(s) of backdrop you carry with you.
Traveling with your photo equipment can be stressful but if you take some preventative steps before you leave you can set your mind at ease.
I recently relocated to New York City. One thing I wasn’t able to bring was my beautiful collection of seamless backdrops, but luckily I was able to get my hands on a few of Savage’s Collapsible Backdrops which have become a saving grace for me.
This morning I received the Morning Haze Collapsible Backdrop from Savage Universal! This is my first experience with one of their collapsible backdrops and it did not disappoint. I often shoot corporate headshots on-location in tight office spaces so I was excited to see if this could be an easier option that taking a full backdrop stand and canvas.
Last week I received the Rustic Planks/Red Collapsible Backdrop by Savage Universal. This is from the new Grunge Collection of Collapsible Backdrops. I own several of these drops and have become a fan due to the ease of setup, collapsibility and their effectiveness for use them in small spaces. It is also super awesome that they are reversible so you are able to get a wider variety of images with one drop!
This week I received Savage Universal’s all new White Brick/Dark Gray Collapsible Backdrop. I have worked with previous designs of their collapsible drops before so I was very excited to get my hands on one from their new grunge collection! These backdrops are great for setup in small spaces, they collapse down for easy travel and are perfect for any type of headshot or ¾ length images you are looking to create.

Headshot photographers oftentimes get called into set up an office shoot for company personnel. In most instances, your allotted space is a small conference room or hallway. Situations like these call for compact equipment to maximize space for your subjects. Collapsible backdrops are the ideal solution for on-location sessions, and reversible collapsibles provide an even better solution of two-easy-looks-in-one! See Full Gallery>>
