Our hand-painted canvas backdrops are the perfect medium between printed backdrops and solid surfaces - offering portability and easy storage with the advantage of unique textures and details to your specification.
We offer three sizes of hand-painted canvas backdrops -
Canvas will shrink slightly from painting, no more than a few cm's is normal
Painted on highest quality, 12oz artists canvas with raw edges to finish or hang as you wish. See our set up pics using the smallest 'still life' canvas backdrop which we have simply clipped to a c-frame stand with bulldog clips. (Larger backdrops will be heavier and need bigger grips or staples!)
Our preferred paints are Little Greene Paint Co, Earthborn Paints, Farrow and Ball and Duluxe but we can match any standard paint reference. (As an eco-conscious business we don't use any aerosol spray paints.)
Please email your references soon after ordering or get in touch to discuss your ideas, different sizes or large orders and we can create an order for you.
We love collaborating with you on your dream surfaces and will communicate throughout the artistic process to make sure we have understood your ideas and matched your vision perfectly.
For scenic effects and other commissions please get in touch to discuss your ideas and prices.
Sophie has been making photography backdrops for publishers, prop houses, studios and creatives since 2016 - initially on a larger scale and more recently only by private commission - so we are really happy to be able to offer this service to a wider audience again through our website.
‘There’s nothing quite like finding the perfect bespoke background surface for a special client or project. It can be such an important point of difference or principle on some jobs. Sophie’s hand-painted surfaces have never failed to deliver that difference and quality behind or underneath the things which I photograph.’ Matt Inwood
