Photography & Videography

Professional Studio

Studio Eight has thrived as a professional photography studio for more than 25 years. In recent years, we have been doing more videography work as our clients prefer a one-stop studio. It has been our pleasure to capture some of the most iconic brands, and to work with some of the best photographers, videographers,
and talent available.

No product is too small and no client is too big for Studio Eight. We are fortunate to have Robert Olding as our staff photographer and videographer. He brings more than 25 years of retail and product photography experience to the studio. We also work with other photographers on behalf of our clients. So if you feel that you have very specific needs, please allow us to tap into our network of professional photographers and videographers who are happy to help support your brand.

Our Photographer

Growing up in southwestern Idaho, my access to the arts and culture were limited mostly to TV and radio with the occasional foray into macrame and sewing. I had a great love for all things creative and was generally thought of as an all-around weird kid. I kept busy by enlisting my 5 brothers and sisters to star in my various attempts at filmmaking. My version of Grease is legendary amongst a handful of people living in Idaho. I pursued music and enjoyed many years playing drums with various local bands.
