With a white paper background and a couple strobes anyone can have a standard studio setup, but my goal is to provide something unique and interesting. Something that isn’t readily available on every corner. Whether you’re an experienced shooter or new to studio lighting, you can hit the ground running at my studio. It’s a relaxed, intimate environment located in downtown Wichita. Perhaps you only need a studio a few times a month, why take on all the overhead and maintenance of having your own studio when you can pay by the hour and have access whenever you need it. I have the equipment and everything you need for a productive shoot. Perhaps you’re ready to get serious about studio lighting but you don’t know where to begin. No problem. Book an extra hour before your session and I’ll help you build up your lighting setup to get the look you want and give you pointers on how to get the most out of it. And of course I’ll be on hand if you have questions during your shoot. If you’re just looking for some one-on-one training, we can do that too. We have the whole studio at our disposal and I can teach you anything you want to learn.
- Relaxed, private environment

Red/Black Wall (9’x8′)
This is my most used background. Very classy. Great for headshots and portraits and the texture makes it easy to clone stray hairs.
Blues Wall (11’x8′)
String Art Wall
Red Slatted Doors
I just finished this wall recently and haven’t had a chance to shoot with it yet, but I can tell it’s going to be a lot of fun. It’s a wavy wall, so if you look at it from the left side all the yellow stripes disappear, and if you look from the right all the purple stripes disappear.
This 4’x8′ wall has 2 sides, wheels and can be moved around for use anywhere in the studio. One side is glossy white and the other has a textured floral pattern fabric. I’ll be attaching different interchangeable backgrounds to it as I find new interesting pieces to add to my collection. Just choose the one you want and flip the rest over the back. Here are some interesting ways to use it. This is a new addition. More sample images to come.
Red Tufted Wall
When you want a seductive and alluring look the red tufted wall is extremely sexy and it’s a lot of fun to light. It can be placed horizontally or vertically. Here are some sexy ways to use it. View the build here.
This is one of my favorite tools because it creates such interesting light patterns. I have it secured to the wall so a strobe can be placed behind it. Also Really cool when used with the fog machine.
Take advantage of my lighting expertise before and during your session. Let me help you prepare for your session with a pre-session consult. We’ll start an hour before your clients come in and work out a lighting solution and setup that will make your images really stunning. This is preferable to having me help you sort all that out while the clients wait. Having it set up and knowing exactly how to proceed before they even get here will make you look more professional and allow you to relax and enjoy your shoot. Of course I will be on hand in my office should you need help during the shoot as well.

Purchasing Studio Time

$35 per hour, 2 hour minimum.
