The studio was started in the 1930's and was famous for is signature black and white photograph and its continuous lighting technique inspired from cinematographic lighting styles. They had an exclusive contract with MGM studios and photographed the who's who in film and after 75 years, it still known for it's elite clientele. My work is heavily inspired timeless and classic black and white photography so it was a real treat going behind the scenes and seeing the mastery that is Studio Harcourt in action.
The first slide show is a look at the make up and dressing room. Designed to look like a scene from Beauty and the Beast with the light fixtures being hands coming from the wall.
And the final result after all the lights have been placed, you're left with the beautiful, elegant and timeless signature lighting of the famous Studio Harcourt.
