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 its surroundings have it all. We’ve got the light, the sights and the people. This seaside town with 300 days of sunshine per year is the ideal venue for productions, workshops and events. And make sure you don’t miss out on the festivals. Studio Sitges is Photo Central.

Our Work and Play Shop

Studio Sitges has hosted its first “Art of Nude Photography” Workshop and we can’t wait till the next one. The whole weekend went just right from start to finish.

If you like what you see – and we know you will – be sure to get on down to Studio Sitges for the next one October 21-23, 2011. We will be posting regular updates of details.

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.

Accept in Studio Sitges

Sound stage

Heavy metal band Accept showed up at Studio Sitges to shoot the promo video for their new album “Blood of the Nations”.

Studio Sitges is now the go-to venue for a whole range of photo projects. With Accept we handled the whole deal right through production management and post-production. Big jobs are what we do. So we developed the concept and drew up the story-boards. We hand-picked the crew and mapped out the seven camera set-up. Our stuntman used the Studio Sitges mascot car – the Black Beast.

It all came together perfectly and we had a ball while we were at it.

Our debut

Studio Sitges showed just how versatile it is when we shot two contrasting sessions at the same time. An editorial with American Apparel took place in Studio A. At the same time, in Studio B Barcelona's Hells Angels showed us how tough they can be in an epic session of pictures for their club house walls.

Everybody, but everybody, showed up. Production companies, model agencies and other photographers all wanted to see what's on offer. Studio Sitges is open for business in a big way.

Road test

Now Studio Sitges is built, it’s time to see that it works. To check this out we invited the internationally renowned Kenneth Linge to host a workshop for 14 Norwegian photographers. Day one was a fashion shoot in the Studio. The next day took in some outdoor venues as well as locations around Barcelona before coming back to Studio Sitges. The verdict is in. “ It’s superb”.
