Fake grass for photography
Cost-Effective Artificial Grass Installation Service
Get your photoshoot right every time – A specific grass & shock pad system is provided to ensure a stable surface for players’ boots to grip and give realistic ball bounce. The grass surface is fully bonded to the shock pad to ensure no ripples or joint failures occur during use under the hot lights.
Whilst budgets are important, the risk of a photoshoot having to be delayed or stopped because of a safety concern or visual requirements not being met, far outweighs the time and cost of a new fit-for-purpose grass system to rectify.
Many clients will purchase the grass system for their shoot and have it installed and removed by the fitting team. The surfaces can be stored at our warehouse in premium condition until the next project. Alternatively, services can be provided to move the products to multiple venues across Europe for the same project.
3G v 4G v Natural
It is a common misconception that you need a 3G or 4G fake grass when you film or photograph football players during action photoshoots.
We understand that for still and video work, you need a high quality artificial grass background that looks good on camera under studio lights and is safe to play on. As a result, we have never used a 3G or 4G fake grass, as we believe it is not an appropriate product for this kind of work.
3G and 4G surfaces generally require sand or rubber infilling, which is a messy and time-consuming process to both install and remove. Yet, without the infill, the pile height is not maintained, and instead tends to lie flat, causing the grass to look shiny from one direction and dark from another.
However, our range of fake grass offers the best of both worlds for your photography projects. Our products provide a surface that is both safe to play on and looks very realistic under studio lighting, even for close-up work.
The Final Result of Our Photoshoot Installations
An installation that we recently completed for a Puma campaign shows the excellent results that our artificial grass can provide for your photoshoot.
Shock Pad Underlay
For all action photoshoot installations, we recommend using a shock pad underneath the fake grass. This provides a cushioned surface for players to move on to reduce the risk of injury in high-speed moves and falls.
When players are using studs, the shock pad provides a cushion to allow them to sink into the grass, compared to playing on artificial grass that has been installed directly onto concrete. This reduces the risk of slipping or injury and gives the ball a realistic bounce. This pad also helps to level rough studio floors and provide a better surface to film on.
It removes the problem of trying to tape the turf down to dusty studio floors, as it is bonded to the shock pad using a tackifier adhesive. This allows the two surfaces to be cleanly removed from each other on removal, but provides 100% bond during play, eliminating any risk of the grass moving or buckling, even under very high traffic.
We offer a worldwide service. With good access and a clear floor, we can install 200sqm of grass and shock pad in 3 hours and remove it in 1-2 hours, and 1000sqm in 9 hours and remove in 3-4 hours.
