The history of FSTOP STUDIOS:
The concept of FSTOP was created in February 2011 due to working with a team of fellow photographers who helped each other out (back then the acronym stood for "Free State Team Of Photographers").
In 2016 (the acronym was changed to "Fully Specialised Team Of Professionals") due to the fact that we now incorporate various professionals all around South Africa ranging from Photographers and Videographers who specialise in various genres, Make Up Artists, Licensed PPL Drone Operators, Post Production and Editing Crews, Sound engineers and Cinematographers, as well as Graphic & Web designers.
Being a team with such a variety of skills located all around South Africa enables us to increase productivity, cut costs and turnaround time.
