Meet ‘Stan’

John Reynolds (‘Stan’) has been a commercial photographer for the last 25 years working with a wide range of clients.

He’s has been renting, repairing and supplying Cambo stands since 2011. He knows how the industry works and how to fulfil your exact requirements.

  • Old Stan’s good friends at Big Sky Studios have taken over RIDA’s old space, and what a lovely job they’ve made of it. This is studio 8, complete with one of our 9ft Rental beauties. #thecambostaneffect #londongriphire #studioenginerringsolutions #bts #yeswecan
  • Here’s a brace of rental Cambo stands, for when one simply isn’t enough. Old Stan installed these for an eminent London food photographer, working on a very large project. #giveembothbarrels #nicepair #solidanddependable #sturdyandreliable #setlife #griphire #yeswecan
  • Old Stan feels like an extra in a dystopian zombie film on this rainy grey London morning.
We installed one of our 9ft rental beauties at the Old Biscuit Factory in Bermondsey. It has a footprint larger than Chelsea stadium, with great swathes of internal space going unused. Sadly, as with all of these great spaces, it’s scheduled for demolition but until that happens it’s a temporary home to hundreds of creatives. #thecambostaneffect #setlife #camborental #griphire #griphirelondon #londonartists #yeswecan
  • Old Stan was up with the larks this morning for a trip to Northamptonshire. We installed one of our beautiful reconditioned #Foba #studiostands for the lovely people at this splendid still life studio, set in the heart of the glorious English countryside. #thecambostaneffect #supportinglovelypeople #stilllifephotography #foodphotography #setlife #bts #yeswecan
  • Another beautiful day sees another of our sturdy rental stands all installed and ready to roll for the week.

  • It was a busy day for old Stan yesterday. It all started at 4.30 Am with a trip to Great Yarmouth to collect a stand for total refurbishment. Then we hop skipped and jumped down to Asylum models in Wimbledon to collect one of our rental beauties, which had been working hard on a very interesting shoot there. We then darted back up to Happy Hackney, wrapping up the day at 8pm by installing this fine specimen into Big Sky at Hows St. ready for an early start today... #thecambostaneffect #hegetsabout #repairreuserecycle #camborental #yeswecan
  • This week, old Stan shouted House upon completing a line of food photographer bingo. We’re honored to have been of service to the holy trinity of @garethmorgansphoto @mylesnewphotography and @jonathangregsonphotography who all have studios within this central london studio complex. Old Stan was pleased as punch to have supported three of the loveliest blokes you can meet and to have sorted out their studio stands along the way. #thecambostaneffect #yeswecan #house #bts #setlife #foodphotographerbingo #twojags #stanhasleftthebuilding
  • Another busy week for old Stan rounded up nicely with a trip to the smart and beautifully appointed still life food photography space that is @montfordplacestudio We were called upon to service their trusty #cambo ust stand which has now been smartened up to match its wonderful surroundings. #thecambostaneffect #londonhirestudio #rentalstudio #stilllifephotography #studiohire #foodphotography #bts #yeswecan
  • It was an early start for old Stan today. We attended the head offices of a huge london publishing house to rescue this poorly #Foba #Asaba Using technology developed by the U.S. military in the 1950s, we manufactured a bespoke steel cable. The original rope Foba uses on these had worn out as they all invariably do. Old Stan got it all up and running again before the working day had commenced, minimizing downtime and disruption. #thecambostaneffect #repair reuse recycle #fobarepair #yeswecan #stilllifephotography #london #publishing
  • Another day, another pair of wonky #Foba stands repaired, refurbished and un-wonked for one of our lovely clients. #thecambostaneffect #repairreuserecycle #yeswecan
  • Normally old Stan’s Cambo stands are the largest bit of kit in the place. Not so today however, in the legend that is stage five at Black Island. #thecambostaneffect #sturdyandreliable #solidanddependable #sizematters #yeswecan
  • Another busy week all done and dusted for Stan. We were pleased and proud to have again assisted our friends at Imperial War Museums. We moved this beauty from London to its new home in Duxford on Friday, so do get in touch if you should ever need to move yours. #thecambostaneffect #movingcambos #handledwithcare #yeswecan
