We love investing in our kit and are constantly on the lookout for our next upgrade or any new releases. As the years roll by we have slowly worked our way up the ladder and now shoot with industry standard cameras and lenses. Brydn shoots photography on his Nikon D850 whilst Ian shoots videos on his Sony A7iii.
As well as this we own our own lighting equipment both for photography and video. We recently purchased an Aperture 300X light which is incredibly powerful and can brighten up any dark space. This is especially useful if your venue has little natural light. Any professional photographer or videographer will tell you that lighting is one of the most important parts to composing a shot. Lighting determines not only brightness and darkness, but also tone, mood, and atmosphere. Therefore, it is necessary to control and manipulate light correctly.
Even though we own some of the top model cameras and lighting equipment, we still refer back to our creative knowledge learnt from our very first cameras.
Of course, owning top of the range kit doesn’t instantly make you the world's best wedding photographer or videographer. The person holding the camera is what counts. We both still own our first ever cameras, they remind us of how creative he had to get with the limitations we had. Ian could only shoot 42 seconds at a time with his first camera!
