What item is right for you?

Ask our Experts!

The Savage Background Port-A-Stand Kit consists of two black folding upright stands that can rise to a height of 8' 10", a crossbar that can expand to a width of 9' 5", and a travel case with handle.

It is ideal for the photographer on the go. The stand (w/o paper) is lightweight (12 lb / 5.4 kg), and compact, collapsing to less than 44 inches.

The Port-A-Stand is designed to safely support 9' rolls of seamless paper, as well as cloth backgrounds as heavy as muslin. For 10' wide cloth backgrounds, either fold the edges under, or gather and drape the material to fit the width of the crossbar.

For extra safety, weights or sandbags are available as accessories to secure the setup around active children.
And don't forget a clamp or two, to secure your included roll of white seamless paper or to drape your cloth background more creatively.

Designed to support a paper or cloth background, up to 9' wide by 36' long.
Folds down quickly, and is stored in the included travel case.
Maximum Height 8' 10" (3.3 m)
Minimum Height 48" (1.2 m)
Closed Length 44" (1.1 m)
Maximum Width 9' 5" (2.8 m)
Minimum Width ~54" (1.4 m)
Weight 12 lb (5.4 kg) (stand only)

Pros
-very sturdily built
-nice carry bag
-extends very high
-makes for a very professional looking set up
-can use a huge variety of rolls of paper that are very inexpensive

Cons
-doesn't come with any sort of A-clamp to hold the roll of paper from continuing to unroll, so make sure you buy a few from B&H or any hardware store. I use one at the top to hold the roll steady and two at the bottom to hold the paper flat on the legs of the stands

I purchased this background stand for my photography studio and while it does the job, I'm not satisfied with it. This is not the best quality stand by far. It's poorly constructed and doesn't hold paper in place. Even though most of us are on a budget, I would suggest investing in a better quality background stand.

          I bought the backdrop combo kit to do a few cake smash sessions. It set up quickly and is very portable. The paper was a nice added bonus.

            I bought this for use with studio head shots. For the price especially, this setup works great! It is not fancy, but does the job well. Seems pretty sturdy and would be even more so had I also purchased sandbags. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase.

                The product arrived intact and well packaged. Easy and quick assembly. I use it in my studio, but it is lightweight so it's easy to disassemble and pack in the included travel bag for on-site shoots. The paper that came with it was slightly torn at the edges where it was taped, but I found that irrelevant. Overall, I think it's a great product for the price; a perfect starter kit.

                  These stands are amazing. Im on my 3rd set and plan to order more. Great for on-site shooting. Case is easy to carry with 2 pouches for stands. If you do sports or school photography these are the best option for background stands.

                        My first background. The stands and center section are sturdy. The carrying case stores all quickly and compactly. The paper roll is of good quality. Not sure if there is a mechanism to prevent the paper roll from unrolling while hanging on the cross beam. I ended up using a clamp to hold the roll in place.

                          It's the first time I buy such things so I am off to a good start! Nothing hard about setting up, pretty self explanatory and the paper is amazing because you do not have to worry about any wrinkles!
