The Backdrops I Have on Hand


I'm creating this blog post because I've responded to quite a few emails, with attachments of my backdrop samples. Showing samples that way has been just fine, but it can be time consuming. From now on, instead of email attachments, I think a quick blog post link could be easier for both myself and my clients! If you're surprised to see that I even have backdrops, since I've labeled myself as an outdoor/on-location portrait photographer, you should know that I do typically shoot backdropped headshots for at least 5 realtors, plus maybe a few other businesspeople per year (I'm adding a police department this year!). I've brought my collapsible/pop-out backdrops to businesses, for bulk headshots, otherwise, I shoot single headshots and indoor child sessions at my home studio set up... which is where I shot all of the images below.

If you're a photographer and you'd like to know more about what I think of the different backdrops/different materials, plus the links to where they were purchased, don't forget to scroll to the bottom of this post!


EDIT: Since covid-19, I've limited what I shoot at my home studio setup. The area I usually use has become my daughter's new school and it's in my home, so I think that complicates things with covid. I've limited the space strictly to people I know, or clients I've gotten to know. I do still bring my traveling backdrops to businesses.
