On several occasions I have been photographing a senior or engaged couple on location and they need a place to change outfits. If there's no public restroom nearby, they've had to use a vehicle.

I found this Pop-Up Dressing Room (external link) from California Palms (currently $59.99) a while ago but haven't purchased one yet. I'm leaning toward the royal blue, but I wish they had some earth tones that weren't so obnoxious.

Have any of you ever used one of these? If your photographer had one, would you use it? What are your thoughts?

Thanks for your feedback,
Scott

OK, well i guess there is one "earth tone", forest green. But there are no pictures of it.

Any feedback?

You can get whole pop up tents for that price. They used to have them at Wal-Mart. They fold like a sun shade but are about 6 foot by 6 foot when up.

Thanks for the tip. I found this one (external link) a little cheaper, and it's black.

Thanks, Mark!
Found this: http://www.amazon.com/​dp/B001RDYOJ2/ (external link)

Kitted out a changing room for the home studio today, and it cost more than the pop-up blind!


I have Canon gear. SX1 IS, two 7D bodies and mostly f/2.8 lenses 10mm-200mm, doubler, and 17/4 TSE, some 580EX IIs. Additional portable lighting gear, and tripod with 360 pano mount. Want two 7D II bodies.

true but you may not always have that much space available to put up a 6x6 tent.

I've got one like in the OP and it is pretty small for transporting and pops up nicely.

Update:

I found the same dressing room on eBay for $10 cheaper - from the same seller! I ordered it and received it today.

The quality looks great, time will tell if it holds up. The size looks sufficient for a changing room. It comes with sandbags, stakes, a cover for the mesh top and a carrying bag.

I think it was the right one to buy. Total cost, shipped to my door: $67.99.

I have a blue pop-up dressing room. I used it just last weekend. I think I paid about $50 for it. It works great for seniors while out walking around. I usually try to set it up near a wall for a little more feeling of privacy.

That looks just like a portable shower made for camping

I would look for a very light colored pop up. it could get rather hot and humid in a dark colored "tent" in short order.

Cabela's have blinds (could be used for dressing room) that are camo, about $50, have windows (not much good for a dressing room, but might help if it's really hot). I use one for birding. They also have the short ones, but the one I have is about 6 feet tall.
