OrangeMonkie – Professional Product Shots for Everyone?

OrangeMonkie has built a brand focused on the simple creation of product promotional material, successfully creating innovative portable studios for product photography, videography and 360º content. Their most prominent products are a number of lightboxes that are lightweight, easy to use, foldable and slick.

Like many new emerging companies in today's world, OrangeMonkie began as a startup through crowdfunding platforms. What's intriguing about their story is that they believed they would have more success in crowdfunding if they had better photos of the accessory products they were promoting. But, photo studio rental prices and professional photographers were much too expensive, so instead they found a solution themselves and created a foldable lightbox to shoot their own accessory products. This solution would turn out to be the flagship product for their brand, in a world where online content is at an all time high, allowing photographers and videographers to capture high-quality product photos and videos at an affordable cost.

Primarily based in product photography and videography, OrangeMonkie's lightbox entourage consists of three lightboxes - the Foldio1, Foldio2 Plus and Foldio 3, and the all-in-one option, the Foldio360 Smart Dome. Functionality wise, all of these lightboxes work the same way, with each model simply offering more light output and larger volume. All of OrangeMonkie's lightboxes incorporate their foldable design, as well as LED lights that are fully dimmable, and an easily interchangeable backdrop system.

Along with their portable studios, OrangeMonkie sells a number of accessories to help enhance your product shoots, such as the Foldio360 Smart Turntable and the Tripod50V. Recently they have also begun to expand their product line with products for streamers and vloggers, like their Q Mic Audio Kit, in addition to releasing software for controlling, exporting and editing product images and more. A basic product shot sometimes doesn't allow consumers to get a true sense of a product, but by using accessories like the Foldio360 Smart Turntable, capturing full 360 degree videos and photos of a product becomes very easy and can help your product stand out from the competition.

OrangeMonkie offers a number of good quality photo and video accessories at very fair prices. Their portable studios and accessories offer new product manufacturers and startup e-commerce sites the ability to create professional product photos, videos and 360º visuals when the ability to pay for larger studios and professional product photographers might not be an option. I'm excited to see what future innovations they come up with!
