Mandy Gleason is the CEO of Replica Surfaces. Before launching Replica in 2018, she wasn’t a photographer. She was a former Canadian television actor, was working a full-time job, and unexpectedly needed to take high-quality product photos despite having almost no photography or styling experience. In her spare time after work, Mandy designed a product in hopes of creating a second income stream and needed to photograph the prototype. She didn’t have good natural light in her apartment and her kitchen countertop wasn’t the right look. What she needed was a lightweight, realistic backdrop she could photograph outside or next to a window. She decided to scrap the other product and set out to create the backdrop she had been looking for, and the Replica story began.
