Light Stands

Shop Samy's to find photography light stands for your next photoshoot, streaming session, or film. Light stands give a safe, stable foundation on which you can attach all your lighting equipment. Able to hold reflectors, backdrops, flags, strobes, LED lights, and all other lighting equipment you may need while on set, photography light stands are a must to capture breathtaking photos and video.

Sturdy metal frames like aluminum and steel give these light stands a strong structure for heavy lighting equipment, with some stands able to hold over 80 pounds. Locking mechanisms and grip arms provide a secure grasp to hold lights steady. 

Every photography shoot is different, so we offer a variety of light stands to fit your exact needs. For example, our light stands can be adjusted to various heights with double and triple risers. Sliding leg C stands allow you to adjust the leg height on the tripod independently for level lighting on uneven terrain. Check out our roller C stands to quickly and easily wheel your lighting equipment around the set. Reverse light stands are great for on-location work as the legs collapse and fold easily. Make sure you have the right light stands on hand for the location and the type of content you are capturing.

How do light stands work?

Light stands have a grip head or mounting area with locking knobs at the top where you can attach your lighting equipment. Once mounted, lights can be placed in a variety of positions and angles while staying safely secured to the light stand. 

Why is it called a C stand?

The term C stand comes from filmmaking where centuries, a common size of sun reflector used on set in the past, were held up by heavy-duty tripod stands. Today, C stands are used to hold all types of film and photography lighting equipment.
