Video: Philippe Echaroux Builds a One Man Portrait Studio at Photokina


Philippe Echaroux — many of whose projects we’ve shared with you in the past — is back with an interesting, portable project from this year’s Photokina. Teaming up with Elinchrom, the photographer set out to show how even a portable, one-man studio setup can produce impressive results.

To capture the striking portraits below, Echaroux used only one strobe, one battery pack, an inexpensive DSLR and no assistants whatsoever. The setup consisted of an Elinchrom Ranger Quadra (with a beauty dish attached) mounted to his back via an elaborate tape setup, and a battery swung around his shoulder with a camera strap for power.

Did the setup look great? Not exactly. But it got the job done and the results are nothing to scoff at:
