The Inflatable Portable Studio (IPS) for photographers

by Mark R

I’ve seen a portable photo studio before from ThinkGeek and Hammacher Schlemmer, but this has to be one of the biggest.

Welcome to the Inflatable Portable Studio (IPS), which is perfect those who need that extra bit of space for their photograph developing. It is made of a thin plastic that will block out any external light.

This portable studio comes in two sizes of 12 x 7 x 10 feet or 20 x 12 x 10 feet, and you will need a giant fan or blower thing to inflate it.

It is made to inflate like a bouncy castle, but it doesn’t look like you want any kids to be jumping up and down on the roof. I am guessing that the “skin” of this thing has to be this color, otherwise who would want to do photographs inside this giant…crap?

Still, it is handy to have a portable room that allows you to be sealed off from the rest of the outdoors. I would imagine that it would be very cool in there with the fan blowing.

The IPS is available for $330 for the 12 x 7 x 10 foot version or $350 for the 20 x 12 x 10 foot version. The fan is about $70 or $150, depending on what version of the photo studio you have.

Apparently this writer doesn’t know the difference between a photography darkroom and a photography studio. See original at, which is only slightly more informative.
