Our new baby

Our new baby

Are you thinking of shooting in a sandstorm? Or maybe in the middle of a monsoon? That’s no problem for the latest addition to our range of top-specification equipment.

Now we have Sony HXR-NX70 – the Water Baby - with CVP Camshower System for Rainproof Capability. This robust baby has a bright future ahead of it. It will stand up to conditions that would finish off any other camcorder. It has an integrated 10x optical zoom 'G' lens with a focal range of 3.8-38mm, the equivalent of a 26mm lens on a 35mm camera which gives impressive wide angle shots.

A full HD image consists of less than 2.2 million pixel. This baby is equipped with a very grown-up 1/2.88" Exmor-R CMOS sensor with 6.6 million pixels!

Want to shoot a disaster movie? You can make a success of it by using our wind and rain machines and filming it all with the Sony at Studio Sitges.

This will blow you away!

This one is wheel-mounted for extra ease in using it.

If you want to really kick up a storm you can use it with our 9-head rain shower. Sexy!

Lights, camera - and cue tropical downpour.

We are almost swept away by the latest addition to our facilities. We have just installed a 9-head rain shower in Studio A. There no need for rain dances any more when we want to get wet-look effects. Hot or cold water cascades down 5 metres to the happy models underneath. Now the Studio’s climate control is exactly what it says. So whether you want to shoot a wet wet wet music video or a fashion show with a sprinkling of glamour, Studio Sitges is the place to book. Contact us now before we are deluged with enquiries and don’t forget your umbrella. Swimsuits optional.

We are in good company

When a high-end fashion house gets together with an award-winning photographer, where do they head for the photo shoot? Yes – you guessed it! It’s Studio Sitges.

We have just finished hosting the preparations for the launch of Naulover‘s autumn and winter collections. Have a look here at beautiful clothes they are presenting.

Internationally-feted photographer Carlos Alsina was there to make sure they looked their very best. We are proud to be their studio of choice when they needed the best facilities.

Now available - Tom Kundig book “Houses 2”

Now available - Tom Kundig book “Houses 2”

Read all about it

Photographers and others worldwide were asked, “What would be your ideal working environment?” From this input we knew Studio Sitges needed the best architect. We found him. It was Tom Kundig.

Now his just published book “Houses 2” tells the story of a three years’ collaboration. It shows the outcome of the monumental planning and discussion that went into the creation of the purpose-built Studio and the House that goes with it.

Tom is actively redefining the grammar of architecture. For example you can see it in the House’s wood and iron staircases, the positioning of the pool, doors that open in different ways and the curved outside architectural line that goes all the way through the bathrooms of the suites.

The book and its pictures reveal why Seattle-based Tom Kundig continues his meteoric rise. Over the last five years he has gained a world-wide reputation for an innovative balance of raw materials with modernist design. Nowadays he collects numerous awards including the 2011 “World Architecture News House of the Year Award” for his design of The Pierre in Seattle and “Residential Architect’s Project of the Year award” for Art Stable in Washington State.

You can see the result in pictures from the book attached here.

So why go to such great lengths? It’s so that you can have the world’s finest Studio available to you.

The best just got better.

We are talking about the new IQ180 system from Phase One.

Come to think of it, it’s true of Studio Sitges too because this fantastic new advance is now available on request to our Studio clients. This leading-edge equipment is now our in-house system and we are blown away by what it can do.

It has received rave reviews from the professional press and we can vouch for the fact that it lives up to them. “Digital Photographer” magazine says “It cannot be faulted….. for those at the top of their game”. “Luminous Landscape” describes it as “The most significant advance since the first untethered back.” And “PDN” talk of “the best image quality of any medium format system, bar none.”

If all this sounds like what you’ve been waiting for and now you are itching to get your finger on the button, then it’s here for you right now at Studio Sitges.
