Shooting area of  Bob Williams Studio in Sterling Heights, Michigan.

Bob Williams Studio is a custom designed space that combines visual excitement with workflow efficiency. Bob Williams studio is located about 45 minutes north of Detroit in Sterling Heights, Michigan. It was designed and built on Williams’s 25-plus years of shooting and combines form with function. Everything from soft colors on the walls to the classically styled furniture speak to a sense of style and design that makes clients and staff feel comfortable and at home in the work space.

The studio offers a clean work environment with a large assortment of lighting and grip equipment rentals to meet the needs of any photographer. Designed as a car studio, the 10,000-square-foot stage features a custom-designed cove wall with a large corner and two 16-foot x 40-foot  flying flats. The large top and bottom radii allow light to travel and reflect beautifully on metal surfaces. “The studio is the culmination of many years of shooting high-end automotive projects for advertising clients from all over the world,” says Williams.  It accommodates non-automotive projects, as well  as large industrial, fashion and multi-product shoots. Recent fashion shoots for Jenny Risher and HOUR Magazine included working with a horse on set and involved constructing a swimming pool and beach sets for the fashion spreads.Williams can arrange for production services such as crew, stylists, producers, make-up, model and casting agencies for his rental clients. He can also source video equipment and crews.
