Inflatable Photo Studio to Blow Up the VPPA Convention: Bring Your Cameras

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 17, 2011) - June 2010, Brian Hedenberg, a professional photographer in New York City, was struggling with the need for a studio but could not afford New York rental prices. Using simple physics he built a prototype, inflated it outside, and started shooting. After photographing several models from some of the top agencies in New York, other local photographers caught wind of Brian's new gadget and asked him to make them one as well. By October the buzz was unstoppable. On October 19, 2010, buzz of a new product hit major websites across the Internet; from Gizmodo, Wired, and CNET to a Belgium business magazine. No press release or announcements were sent out. The Discovery Channel wanted to highlight it in their "High Tech Toys Week."

Inflated with 7700 cubic feet of air per minute, the 32" x 27" x 12" unit expands in 3 minutes to 20ft long x 15ft wide x 13ft high. There are 6 wind stakes around the bottom and wind ties at each corner. The 24-inch drum fan, which is included, is extremely quiet and causes little to no draft inside the IPS. Completely light blocking, there is more than enough space to set up a studio environment and have complete control of the lighting. Concerns of wind, fire, power failure, and other safety issues are all covered on the website.

The IPS is rapidly expanding into several additional concepts like VIP lounges for sporting events and large reception tents for weddings. The Inflatable Photo Studio will be on display at the Virginia Professional Photographers Convention on Sunday, February 27, from 12-5pm at the Ramada Plaza, 6624 West Broad Street, West Richmond, Virginia (804) 285-2000. Brian Hedenberg will be on site to answer any questions and take orders.
