Folks –

My corporate sponsors are companies who not only provide exceptional products and gear, they are committed companies who believe, as I do, that we all can do something to alleviate suffering and poverty around the world. I use their products, test them frequently in extreme and challenging environments, and highly recommend them to you.


Gura Gear

Makers of the finest photobag. Lightweight, tested design, bombproof. Field tested by my crew of maniacs. Well, by me and David duChemin anyway. Seriously, though, I love the Gura Gear Kiboko bag. It easily handles all my main camera equipment – two bodies and a robust selection of lenses and support equipment, and yet is small enough to fit in the overhead of those tiny commuter jets that all the airlines are using nowadays.

ThinkTank Photo

Products that help photographers travel easier, take pictures faster, and organize their gear more efficiently. I don’t go on any assignment without some configuration of their Modular Component System and have recently begun using an Urban Disguise. I’m amazed at how much camera gear I can carry with this bag in addition to my Macbook Pro.


High-quality, versatile lighting equipment for the worldwide photography, video, film, and digital-imaging industries. Includes reflectors, umbrellas, backdrops, softboxes, continuous light sources, connectors, stands, carry cases, apparel, accessories such as grids, swivels, and clamps, and a wide variety of cost-effective lighting kits. My travel kit always includes a 32″ and 42″ Multidisc (love the soft gold). I often take the medium LitePanel kit. Easy to set up, versatile,  and great for location photography, this is a great light modifier.


Products that take fun and creativity to another level. If I’m looking for that extra, creative edge, my Lensbaby Composer is a great choice and doesn’t take much room in the gear bag. Top-notch optics here!

Our mission is to equip filmmakers with the optimal tools to achieve their creative goals. It’s as simple as that.

I just started using a Cinevate DSlR rig as I continue moving into DSLR motion photography. I know there are more choices coming to the marketplace everyday and I’ve investigated every one of them. This rig is comfortable, adjustable in so many ways, and just plain quality material and design.
