My name is Scott Choucino and I’m a professional, commercial food photographer. You can see my work here.

Over the years I’ve used every background going, from bespoke, huge wooden backed things of beauty, to flimsy pixilated paper rolls. I’ve never quite found the thing I’m looking for; high resolution, little in the way of shine, easy to store, economical and of course, with me when I need them, which is usually yesterday!

What I wanted wasn’t out there, so I decided to create it. And that’s how Tin House Backgrounds began; I made the backgrounds myself, tested them, made some more, tested them, then photographed them at a super high resolution with premium Zeiss optics, printed them on premium papers, wasn’t happy with them, started all over again, found new printers, better papers. You get the picture. Let’s just say that the idea for this business started some time ago and it’s taken years to get just right.

I’m a professional photographer, so I like to think I know what other photographers are looking for. I hope when you use my backgrounds, you’ll see the difference through the lens, in the service and in the quality. I include free economy shipping for UK orders as standard. But I know sometimes you need a background now, so you can upgrade for £7 per order (not per background).
