Hello, I am new to the forums here and looking forward to exploring what it has to offer.

I am planning on doing a product shoot of some jeans and clothing (not being worn). Due to the nature of the clients request I will have to shoot these from a birds eye view with the product laying on the floor.

I am looking into camera stands that will be able to suspend my camera above the product but I don't really see anything with a long enough arm. I would need an arm that is at least 3-4 feet long. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to go about this? Thanks for the help.
What format will you be taking it on.

My instinct is to say setup a platform, for example scaffolding or a couple of planks between step ladders ( something safe of course ) with the lighting and products beloew and hand hold the shots.
