Setting up my Replica stand, so excited to start this journey!
The Replica Surfaces Studio has been a game changer for helping me take better photos. I have struggled with trying to take photos in my living room as that's where the best natural lighting is. The ability to move my whole setup and rotate everything without having to move each piece has been pivotal! I love the grooves that hold the surfaces perfectly and having a white surface to bounce light back without trying to hold up a posterboard is fantastic. It's very sturdy and stable. I can roll the whole thing out of the living room and put away my surfaces in less than 5 minutes. I can't say enough good things about the Studio and how EASY it makes taking pictures! My tropical cookbook photos are turning out fantastic! Thank you so much Mandy and the Replica Surfaces team!
LOVE the Studio. It makes setting up a thousand times easier. I can switch out quickly, move it around the house, swivel it to catch light better, and create easy corner looks. A must have if you have a lot of surfaces and use them interchangeably.
The studio is a real game changer! I loved the stands but struggled getting them assembled each time I needed to switch out a surface. Now it is a breeze to set up 3 at a time and can wheel it around, and take apart to store on top of that. I couldn't be happier with it!
Being able to move the platform to any location gives me so much more flexibility in choosing the background (of course, I love using any of the Replica Surfaces to create just about any mood). In this example, I took Replica Studio outside at night to take advantage of the deep and rich background darkness against focused spotlight shining on the subject. Replica Studio allows for a much faster setup and takedown, and its rotating base allows for quick readjustment in ever-changing natural light. I feel I have yet to take full advantage of its mobility and flexibility. If there is one improvement that can be made (hence 4 stars), I would welcome ability to set the platform at much lower height. I like to use macro lenses in the 100mm focal length range (less distortion) and for a top-down shot, it does not allow for an easy shoot. Even with platform at its lowest height while maintaining stability with maximum leg spread, the platform surface is ~31" from the floor. It would require a stepladder for most people to shoot the entire 23"x23" surface with a 50mm lens and the camera held comfortably at eye level. And for a truly stable shot using the tripod, it would require a tripod with height in excess of 6' before extending the center column. Of course I can detach the platform and set it down on the floor but the whole point of being able to rotate on one spot for a quick adjustment of lighting/composition would be lost. Looking forward to some ingenious solution.
I'm enjoying how easy it is to put the stand in a comfortable position. It rolls very smoothly. It's so easy to get creative with the color combos too.
All the surfaces I purchased are absolutely beautiful. Really makes a difference on the outcome of your photo. Love them!
I’m so in love with the new Replica Studio!! It makes taking photos of my cards so much easier and I can move it where I need to for the best light. Thank you so much for creating such a genius product! ♥️
I love my new Studio as well as the my 2 new surfaces, Poolside and Desert Clay. Thank you, thank you!
Love all my surfaces!
My Studio has taken my photography presentation to the next level in improvement. I can not express how much this investment is WORTH IT! I’m a mom, full time employee, and small business owner. This invention saves me SOOO much time!! With set ups & breakdowns, actual photo sessions, and marketing! Give yourself a break and make the purchase!
I love it, BUT… I wish it were a bit easier to get the tripod lined up right. The first time I used it was fine. The second time I used it, I didn’t even realize the legs weren’t lined up at the ideal angle, and I kept knocking it over and knocking stuff down and breaking things. I thought I had bent the wheels or something. My boyfriend finally looked at it and realized the tripod wasn’t extended to the right angle. I also really wish it incorporated storage. That’s my biggest problem with RS, is finding places to safely store my massive collection!
Just set up my Studio today and love how easy it is now to grab a quick shot.
I love being able to move my studio cart around my house!
My husband bought me this for Christmas after I mentioned really wanting one. I was so excited, but had to wait a very long time to receive it. It finally arrived and it was pretty easy to put together. It rolls along nicely and I love being able to insert the backgrounds more easily than with the stands. Overall, it's going to be such a help to me so I don't have to clutter up the dining table every time I want to take pictures. I do wish it had some sort of crank to move it up and down. The instructions say you're supposed to take off the table portion before adjusting the height, which seems really impractical. Often I need to set up a scene and then lower/raise it afterwards. The swivel is awesome, though. I'm hoping a couple of improvements are made and eventually I'll probably want a second one so I don't have to switch out the surfaces as often.
I LOVE my new photo studio, life is so much easier now! I can roll this to my good lighting, change out the backgrounds and leave it set up as it takes almost no space. This is a game changer for my small business.
LOVE the studio. It makes taking pictures so much easier.
This studio is going to be a game changer for my product based business!
The Studio is a game-changer! I can roll it anywhere around my house and take full advantage of the light. I leave it by a window for my usual photo spot and roll it to the middle of the living room for a change of pace. I'm so happy with its sturdiness!
Setting up the studio was straightforward and frustration-free. It’s so sturdy and easy to use, it has made my photo shoots much less stressful:) There are too many variables in photography to fuss with your surfaces and worry about anything tipping over. I’m so glad I purchased!
I am loving the versatility of my studio! It breaks down easily and takes up very little space beneath a table in my office, and is incredibly quick to setup for impromptu photoshoots.
The studio has made it so easy for me to swap out surfaces. Sometimes it can be a hassle to get the little stands on when you want to take a quick picture but this completely solves the problem. The set up video was extremely helpful. Can’t wait to keep creating from the comfort of my office!
I can’t say enough wonderful things about Replica Surfaces! The surfaces themselves are game changers, and work really well. The Replica Studio takes the surfaces to new heights, as they flawlessly snap into place. This is a great company with high quality products and excellent customer service!
My favorite thing ever!!! My husband put it together quick, it is easy to roll and I seriously squealed over the height adjustment! It is amazing and best space saver too compared to even having a card table out! PLUS the way the surface just slides in and not having to worry about the slip holders is next level!
I love that the surface looks realistic and makes my dessert pop!
A must have!
The Studio is very versatile and saved a lot of space in the the room I use for all the shootings. Besides, it's so light that I can bring it upstairs when I find pretty lighting coming from a window. I was very impressed with how well packed it was when I first opened it, and the video helped a lot on how to assemble it. Thanks, RS; you're making my life a little easier.
I love the convenience of moving my portable studio around and having the backdrops clip on so much! It streamlines my shoot days and gives me more time to be creative.
I am really impressed with this. It is heavy duty and well made. Pretty fast to put together, and simple. I think this will last years
I was impressed with the design of the Replica Studio - well thought out and sturdy construction. And so easy to move around. Now I can shoot next to natural light with ease, I need to purchase some diffusers!
A superb design, excellent quality. It is easy to put together. A home studio must have.
Game changer for me! I have no space for a full blown food photography studio and keep all of my materials in a small closet. The EASE that this product allows me when setting up a shot is incredible, it's to versatile and you can tell it was made by people that truly GET IT! In love, if you use surfaces and are on the fence about purchasing, just do it.
I’m absolutely in LOVE with my new Replica Studio! It has far exceeded my expectations when it comes to quality and sturdiness of the design and I cannot wait to start updating all of the photos for my online store!
The photo studio is really fun & it saves me a lot time setting up by my bedroom window. This window faces north & it gets the best light even though this was later in the day. I love wheeling it around
This studio has made ALL the difference! It’s made product photo shoots so much easier. As much as I love photography (and still learning), I dreaded photo shoot days because I had to drag everything from one room to another and back again. Then I’d worry about the lighting and moving everything to follow the natural light. The studio has not only relieved me from all of that, but it’s been so much easier on my back and my knees! I have an online business and frequent, new products are key. What I used to dread, I now look forward to. It is so incredibly functional, and doesn’t take up any room. And, I have to say, has inspired me to be more productive and more creative because of the ease of use. Mandy and the RS team… the Studio was a genius idea and I can’t thank you enough!
I absolutely love the studio! It was rather easy to put together and works so well. I just roll it over to the window and I’m all set. It’s seriously a game changer!
Up, down, all around, chase the sun, make a shadow run, the Studio makes it easy to do it all! It’s now easier than ever to switch out Surfaces, and when you live in a NYC apartment where space is s premium, the Studio helps you optimize the room that you have. BONUS: you can hang your shirts on the Studio handle while you’re ironing. Genius!
I’m still learning but these are amazing!
Total game changer! The studio was such a smart investment! It was so easy to put together, and it’s amazing to be able to stage my photoshoots anywhere in my small condo when I need to follow the natural light from window to window. It also makes changing out the background super fast and easy if you want to try a variety of board combos. Not to mention being able to rest a diffuser in the handle and/or easily create a corner shot, this studio just really upped my game!
I absolutely LOVE the RS mobile studio! This product is AMAZING and worth every penny! It is sturdy and durable. The QR code link provided in the instructions made it easy to assemble. Thank you for that! Also, it was packaged well. This product was carefully made with passion.
I think I actually screamed with joy when the box arrived, and I immediately left what I was doing to unpack and assemble it! It was all I hoped for, and I've been using it non-stop with my surfaces. SO easy to swap them out. I love that! And the swiveling top...oh, my stars! Such a huge help since my office is small and has windows that only allowed photo taking from my stationary surface for a two hour "window" at mid-day. But, now, I can move the studio and turn it as needed to take full advantage of the light as it moves! My office is visually busy as well, so it's nice to have a dedicated surface/backdrop as an area of calm and focus for what I create...miniatures for fashion dolls. And no more bending, crouching, kneeling, stooping...all those postures that hurt my back and knees. Thank you! I can't say that enough. Thank you!
Love my new studio. It is so easy to change the surfaces and move around. This is the best purchase I have made in a long time.
I absolutely love this studio! The best part about it in my opinion is being able to move it around to adjust to the natural light depending on time of day without needing to break down the display ! It’s well made , sturdy and high quality ! It is so amazing. It’s what I’ve needed for many years and could never find ! I’m excited to use it every day to photograph my jewelry!
The work table eliminates the need for the individual stands. I also love adding up to 3 surfaces at once to take photos of items and easily turn the object to change the background. The table easily turns towards or away from the light source. The handles can hold small attached lights, or a handtowel to wipe down the surfaces and It's the perfect size for my space
This studio is making my food blogging life so much easier! I’m beyond thrilled with this ease of assembly and functionality! Thank you for making an amazing product!
I love being able to wheel this to wherever I need the light. Putting the surfaces together has never been easier with the built-in groves that holds them. It was worth every penny for me!
The studio makes it incredibly easy to take awesome shots, even when it's grey and cloudy. The swivel top means that I can see exactly where my shadows will be and adjust as needed without having to change my setup.
I absolutely love it!! I’ve always wanted to take my photos in natural light but it’s been difficult in my limited space. The studio has been a game changer for me. Also, I am super impressed with how sturdy the studio is. I’m definitely going to be using this for a long time.
Using the Replica Studio makes my projects easier and more fun. The side surfaces slide into the slots; and the bottom surface just lays down on the table. The ability to set the table at the right height avoids neck and back aches. And the structure of the Studio allows me to follow the light. Thank you, Replica Surfaces and Mandy Gleason, for inventing and offering such an efficient and productive product.
High quality, super sturdy, and wheels around anywhere in my home with ease. Love how the surfaces glide into the slots and stay secure. The replica studio is pure magic! ✨
WOW! I always enjoyed the attention to detail from RS and the care they take with the quality of the surfaces as well as the packaging so I knew the Studio would be nice. But I am blown away by the quality of this thing and how convenient it is to have a station set up and ready to go! I can take photos at a moment's notice and then wheel the studio into a corner when finished. LOVE IT!
This is a great piece of kit. Packing was superb. There were even extra screws and washers in case you dropped one or two. The video instructions were easy to follow. I think this will prove very useful. In my small apartment, I have to take off the table top to store it. The handle needs to face up, and I've put a note on it NOT to pick it up by the handle, since it is plastic and the top is heavy. I suggest adding this to the instructions, so people won't accidentally break the handle.
I'm crazy about our new Replica Studio. My husband and I are Daily Painters, and we create still life compositions to paint every day. We've been using Replica surfaces since you launched, but because of how the space we used as our still life stage was positioned in our studio, it was difficult for me to change the backgrounds without my husband's help. Now that we have a still life stage on wheels, I can maneuver it for full access and easy change outs of backgrounds, side walls, and "tabletops." It's a dream come true. The Replica Studio is lightweight, but sturdy. And the assembly instructions were fantastic. I'm super excited to see what new creations emerge from this inspiring new tool. And I'm hopeful that you will continue creating new surfaces that will make the Studio an ever-more-valuable asset.
I purchased the studio for myself, and I love it! I placed it in a spare bedroom, where I can create content for stock and product photography. Thank you for creating this wonderful stand!
I love the new studio and how easy it makes it to switch out my surfaces. I also love that Mandy did a video for showing the assembly of it. Made it way easier than if it had only had written instructions
The Replica Surface studio is just amazing. I have a @lowcarbfoodietips IG account, and I wanted my images to look more professional and appealing. With the studio, I achieved that and more. People reached out to me to tell me how beautiful my images and setups are. I am more than happy with this product, and if you are looking to revamp your images either for a blog post or social media, wait no more! It is just so convenient and efficient!
I absolutely love everything about the Studio! Being able to move it around with almost no effort is a game changer. It makes what used to be the somewhat stressful and tedious task of product photography for my business actually fun! 10 out of 10 recommend!!!
I love love love the Replica Studio! It’s been here less than 24 hours and I’ve shot over a dozen setups and it is a lifesaver! The build is sturdy and solid. The tripod with wheels is fantastic for changing angles. I’m so impressed with the forethought of being able to stand bounce and flags on all 4 sides. It’s truly the perfect addition to my studio.
So easy to set up, and move to the shadows and light. I love it! Can't wait to buy more surfaces.
I am loving these Replica Surfaces! I saw an ad about them online and debated about purchasing for a while. I finally decided to buy a few in late 2021. I was SO excited to see the box on my doorstep. After I cleared my "studio" area (i.e. folding tray table) and setup the surfaces, I was HOOKED. I've since bought quite a few more, including the Replica Studio. They're sturdy and wipe clean easily. It's a great setup for the photos I take w/ my cellular. I am very glad I decided to buy. @IEnjoyFoodAndBeverage on IG.
Literally the best Christmas gift ever! This has completely eliminated the back and knee pain I had when shooting for extended periods. I can work faster and I'm so excited!
I’ve been using surfaces for 2 years but the new studio is a game changer! I love that I can move it easily to achieve the best natural lighting and how easy it is to change out the surfaces. Get one today. You won’t be disappointed!
You've created a addiction and I can't stop buying these haha :)
It is RIDICULOUS how perfect this object is. It solves literally all my life's problems. I live in a tiny studio apartment and my food blog side hustle just got SO much easier. I love that I can lower it and roll it around to change the lighting so easily, and swapping out the surfaces is so quick. Thank you Mandy and the Replica team for creating such a magical tool, it is a GAME CHANGER for my business!!
The studio was easy to set up and I can’t wait to use it more. Makes taking product photos so much more easier! Now I can just roll this to my back door with natural light instead of pushing up my kitchen table up against the door and setting everything up.
Studio is a God send... First time playing with it in natural light. Love the winter backgrounds. I've always been very pleased with Replica Surfaces !!! Mandy and her team are always 3 steps ahead of us. Much appreciated.
I am so happy with the new studio! It was not hard to set up, everything was included to set it up. It is just the right size for the surfaces. I love being able to easily create a corner. I already own quite a few surfaces but this new studio makes them so much easier to use. The handle doubles as a spot to set a diffuser with the sleeve on it. Without the sleeve, I can set just the diffuser in the surface slots on one side or the other. The wheels do lock it securely in place. It swivels very easily but not too easily. The mechanism to raise and lower it is a bit simplistic, and somewhat restricting on the heights you can choose. It’s a small detail that does not detract from the overall functionality.
What a great product. Easy to put together thanks to the great video. I wondered about the ease of the slides since I've had some difficulty with the stands. But WOW! no problem at all; the surfaces slide in like a dream. I'm so glad I made the investment.
I can not explain how happy I was when I got my studio. As always, shipping and packaging were superb, and my studio OMG, I love it!!! It was super easy to put together, and it is perfect. The quality is excellent, and it has already helped me to save so much time while taking pictures for my business. Thank you, Mandy and team for creating such an amazing product.

Using my new studio! I took this pic using a small item of decor in my house and it looks professional!
I absolutely love it! Easy to put together and it moves around easily even over carpet. It makes using more than 1 surface at a time a dream too - I was always struggling with the corners
This photo studio is a game changer! It was easy to assemble, and it easily adjusts its height - no more strained back. I also love how easy it is to slip boards in the studio to make a backdrop or corner. Well worth the money.
Love it! I love that I can usually roll this from room to room to capture the best light. Frees up my time since I don’t have to only take photos at a certain time of day.
Love the versatility of my studio! The height adjustment of the platform is a game changer when you are busy styling photos with products and props. The brackets on the back help the surfaces stay flush. So excited for my next photoshoot!!
I am SO glad I ordered the Studio! I only have one window in my workspace and I don’t have room over there to keep my product photography stuff. It’s so nice to be able to easily wheel the studio over to the window and take some great shots. If you’re on the fence on whether to get it or not, get it! You won’t be disappointed!
Easy to assemble. Sturdy. I love how easy it is to change out the surfaces.
I was so excited when this product was announced, and I have been patiently waiting for it to arrive. I assembled and tried it out today, and I absolutely love it. The Replica Studio makes it so much easier to get better natural light for my shots and easier on my body too, now that I no longer have to create setups down on the floor. The Replica Studio really takes owning and using Replica Surfaces to the next level.
Owning the Replica Studio means that I can transport my work space to any room in the house where there is good natural lighting, such as my front entrance way. Here, I was able to use that natural light for the photography of a current product for my online store. I adjusted the height of the studio to a comfortable level so I did not have to stoop to take the photos I needed. I added a little children modeling clay to prop of the wax clamshell and some seashell confetti to add interest to my photo and the scene was set for a great photo! Then when it was complete, I moved the studio back into the office space, tucked away.
I am not a professional photographer but I have bought ALL replica surfaces , and the RS course and I just received my studio and cannot wait to open it and start playing !! These surfaces are a must for anyone hoping to elevate their pictures ! Thank you Mandy
I have several replica surfaces and don’t really know what I would do without them. They do exactly what they claim. My photos come out exactly as I love, the surfaces look like a real wooden table/real marble/cement/white weathered wood and the light reflects beautifully on them. They clean easily and are durable. I am careful with them because all nice things need care, but not too careful, sometimes they take a beating! I have no complaints, just praise. Will definitely add more to my collection.
I’m so excited for this company! They deliver great products and service. Thank you for all the awesome products the company delivers for everyone in the photography world. I absolutely love all the surfaces, bag, mobile studio and workbook! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
These surfaces are a game changer. I love that I can quickly put them together and snap a picture anytime, anywhere and I dont have to have a designated spot to take photos. They make everything look so professional and are such a time saver!
Ummm what the heck! Where has this been all my business life?! Taking product pictures was literally a breeze. I can’t even tell you how happy and satisfied I am about this product. No more crouching or trying so hard to get the perfect angle or making sure nothing disrupts the photo shoot I can just wheel this thing around with no problem to get the perfect angles or lighting.
Taking professional looking photos can be a pain. You need to get the lighting and angles just right. This is why I love my Replica mobile studio so much! It's easy to use and easy to quickly get the perfect photo setup. Plus, it saves me a ton of time because set up and tear down is quick and painless! If you are like me and want beautiful photos without all the hassle, buy the replica mobile studio today!
I received the Studio and LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!! Fabulous Design and SUPER EASY to put together ......
I am absolutely obsessed with my new Replica Studio. I have over 10 surfaces and this makes them soooo much easier to use. I love that I can just roll it around to the place with the best light and then swivel it to get that perfect angle. I haven't even finished unpacking my new office but this had to come out of the box IMMEDIATELY! The assembly was very easy. 10 minutes, tops. Definitely very happy with my purchase.
