Video: A Look Around Yuri Arcur’s Insane Studio
If you're into lighting gear, be prepared to be jealous.
Yuri Arcur is one of the most prolific photographers around, which has helped him rise to heights in the stock photography market that most never thought possible. He recently expanded and built himself a new studio and, from the looks of this guided tour video, it’s filled with the stuff gear nerd dreams are made of.
Not only does he have hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of Profoto lighting gear — including a whole grip of pricy 8A power packs and every light modifier you could possibly dream of — but he also has a motorized rack system that hangs from the ceiling, allowing him to pretty much eschew light stands.
It’s an entertaining watch (like most of Yuri’s videos) that will help put into perspective just what it means to sell thousands of images per day.
