Review Phottix Raja 65cm I've used the Phottix Raja range of softboxes for quite a few years, and found their quality to be outstanding.

The 60 cm Sundisc from Approach Studios is touted as an “ultra portable softbox reflector”, and it was this tagline that caught my eye when I spotted the kickstarter campaign in June 2017.
Meet Joe Harrison. A gentleman who has just celebrated his 100th 100 break in snooker. I was asked by a local working men’s club to create the image, which would be framed and hung on the club wall.
This shoot was developed for a number of reasons. The manufacturer of the butterfly corset wanted some lifestyle imagery to supplement their standard e-commerce images. I also wanted a studio project to make use of the Elinchrom ELB 400 and this would be my first studio use of the kit.
