About Photek

Photek's world famous BACKGROUNDS-IN-A-BAG, provide the perfect product for the traveling photographer. Thousands of our backgrounds are in use throughout the photographic world. Industrial, Commercial, Video, Portrait and Wedding photographers count them amoung their most important tools.

Featherlight in weight, just 6 pounds for the 8x12' and less than 4 pounds for the 6x7' background, the material is of nylon-blend velour specially dyed to our specifications. The 8' x 12' may also be used in a 12' x 8' configuration such as would be required for larger or wider compositions.

Hand painted on one side to create an "old masters" effect (an important plus to the portrait photographer) the reverse side is offered in its solid color for other photographic uses. Because the material is not completely opaque, the backgrounds respond very well to additive color through the use of gels.

Great product


from Wildomar, Ca  -  Semi-Professional

If you need a pure black background, this is it! It also looks and works great when modified with background lighting!


Awesome !!!


from KY  -  Semi-Professional

Great backdrop, background, floor covering, better than black muslin, so glad I purchased this, and it's so velvetty soft... It sucks up the light like a black hole, it's awesome for portraits... (I bought 2 and plan to purchase it in white also) 5 stars :)


Wonderful Backdrop


from central KY  -  Semi-Professional

I wanted a backdrop that would be easy to take anywhere. This one, though a tad bulky (which is to be expected for its size) is incredibly lightweight with the richness and thickness of a much heavier fabric. It can look a bit 'crinkly' in some images, but over all VERY happy with it.

This background is excellent I love it! It feels like velvet and doesn't wrinkle. I would highly recommend this product. In fact Im looking to see if they have it in white.
