Having the right equipment is imperative to getting the most out of any shoot. At Deremer Studios, we’ve invested in industry-leading, innovative equipment including a 20 foot carbon fiber automotive photography rig, a six-foot RGB programmable light painting wand capable of creating designs, patterns and even images, and finally a stabilized rig system to enhance our car-to-car photography capabilities. Each of these pieces of equipment has a specialized purpose which we employ to ensure our clients are getting captivating and unique images that properly compliment and accentuate the vehicle.

Car Camera Rig

Our twenty-foot carbon fiber camera rig is designed to safely and precisely create captivating and crisp motion shots not possible with conventional car to car photography. The process requires attaching the boom to the vehicle via non-abrasive heavy-duty suction arms which hold the carbon boom and camera. From there, we put the vehicle in neutral and gently push while capturing a long exposure. Finally, in post, we edit out the rig and its reflection, and the image is complete.

Car to Car

Our camera car is a 2012 VW Beetle with a modified hatch assembly - the perfect platform for safely capturing energetic and captivating car to car photos on the road or track. Combined with a stabilizing rig, we are able to slow the shutter down to previously unthinkable speeds - resulting in dynamic motion photography at speeds as low as 15 miles per hour, and allowing for surreal, eye-grabbing photos at higher on-track speeds.

Light Painting

Our full RGB six-foot light painting wand is designed from the ground up to provide virtually endless color, pattern and even image options to accent your vehicle. Whether you want simple highlighting or complex designs - we’re able to do it all. With the wand set to white light, you can create a virtual lightbox six feet tall by 20, 30, or even 40 feet - providing highly portable and adaptable studio-quality lighting on location. We’ve also created a large library of patterns and designs for the wand, and can even integrate your own logos or designs to create a truly unique image.
