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.

Here at Studio Sitges we have the capability to project up to 8 meters width in our cyclorama or even bigger if you want more space. And your images can be projected on the fly via your laptop while you are shooting tethered.

Using super-resolution technology, our in-house projector can actually increase resolution and detail. The highest contrast ratio on the market brings you a real-life cinema and video experience.

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.

Architectural Digest September 2011

Where we live

Studio Sitges is making more waves. We are not only producing fine photo art work. The Studio is a work of art in its own right. That’s the view of “Architectural Digest” magazine. This is the bible of the world of architectural design and Studio Sitges is deeply proud of this endorsement.

The September ’11 issue has a full scale feature with the whole story and images to show what Studio Sitges achieved with the renowned architect Tom Kundig. Take a look at what has attracted their admiration.

Above ground, below ground, inside and outside the Studio works in all the ways it was meant to. It’s good to know that such a prestigious authority as “Architectural Digest” magazine thinks so too.

The Delta

The Delta

Studio Sitges is so much more than a photo rental studio. We do total production management. One of our specialties is spotting that perfect location. Today we are introducing El Delta de l’Ebre. This is the delta of the River Ebro, only 90 minutes’ drive south of Sitges. The coastal length is around 50km and the delta plain is no more than 4 or 5m above sea level. The shoreline is formed by long sandy beaches with dunes topped by long grass and two striking sand barriers at each end. This area is famous for its seclusion and its bird life including flamingo colonies. We took a helicopter ride over this spectacular area last week, and the images are spectacular. For more information about access and permissions for this location, please contact Studio Sitges.

Studio Sitges and Phase ONE

Studio Sitges and Phase ONE

Quite a compliment

Everyone knows that Studio Sitges is at the very top. Here’s more proof. The people who make the most advanced gear in the business came to us for the facilities they wanted when they shot their own publicity. Phase One are the leaders when it comes to professional digital camera systems. Their new IQ range of digital backs is simply the best there is.

We handled all aspects of the production management for this project. One of the reasons it worked so well was that we could host the whole Phase One family in our 5 en-suite bedrooms. That way everyone could live and breathe the assignment through to completion.

The IQ range was first used here in Studio Sitges in January ‘11. Listen here to 3 major photographers talk about their impressions.
