Given the nature of Sean's work he was attracted to shootcase because of it's compact dimensions and ease of transport. Build quality and reliability are also absolutely key since the photo booth will have to withstand thousands of miles of rough terrain and extreme climates.


“I was drawn to Shootcase because it's compact and reliable, so I can lug it around in the roughest terrains and environments. It's beautifully engineered and most importantly designed and supported by a team with a photographer who understands studio photography and lighting.”
Being an international published photographer Image quality is of upmost importance. Sean was impressed with the unique design of our soft box style lighting system. The wonderful soft quality of lighting it produces combined with the high power output will ensure beautifully sharp, consistent images in any location which is absolutely key to the projects success.

Plans for 2017 In 2017 Sean will be taking his shootcase across Central America: Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua. Other locations are being currently planned in Africa and Asia. Such a project has never been attempted before and we're hugely excited to see the results.
