Our endeavor to enhance our studio capabilities through the USDA grant is not just about acquiring equipment; it’s about unlocking the potential for dynamic field work in diverse environments. The selected equipment is carefully curated for lightweight mobility and adaptability to a multitude of settings.

As we traverse various landscapes, from forest lands to industrial warehouses, sawmills to construction sites, urban buildings, bridge villages, emergency housing camps, biomass plants, harbors, and beyond, our studio travels with us, providing similar high standards of image capture for our two teams of journalists and photographers.

This versatility enables us to cover a spectrum of scenarios, from bustling business headquarters and investor meetings to fairs, conventions, annual non-profit gatherings, and on-the-ground demonstrations. Our equipment is engineered to meet the challenges of devastated areas, poor and unsecured regions, ensuring that our mission of sustainable architecture and community development reaches every corner.

Your continued support fuels our commitment to bringing the SAB Center’s vision to life, no matter where our journey takes us. Thank you for being an integral part of our mission.
