We're very fortunate to have the support of some brands that believe in photography and creativity as much as our instructors.
Nikon cameras are the engine of our night photography. The quality of the images, the durability and the amazing performance make them our No. 1 choice for overcoming the challenges of long exposure and low-light photography.
A night photographer without a solid tripod is a photographer who captures only half the world—and does it pretty blurry! Manfrotto makes some of the most innovative and professional tripods available. Their Gitzo line epitomizes what tripod support strives to be: lightweight, sturdy, silky smooth, and built to last a lifetime.
Coast is a brand steeped in the Pacific Northwest's Heritage. They are purveyors of amazing flashlights, multitools and knives—all essential items for the outdoor lifestyle. We love their flashlights a whole bunch; they're the best light-painting torches available!
Peak Design makes gear for creative and adventurous people. Well, that fits our MO. We are a big fans of their straps and clips that integrate the Arca Swiss mount, making for a seamless swap between clip and tripod. They also kick-start some of the coolest bags in the world, including their latest backpacks.
Tether Tools provides tons of support for photographers. We especially love their Case Relay System which provides long-term power to almost every current camera on the market. This ensures that we can keep on clicking long into the night without the need to swap out batteries.
Eric Luden and crew produce museum-quality prints, high resolution scans, and museum quality matting and framing. Pioneers of making silver prints from digital images, they also produce a range of inkjet prints with quality that is second to none.
Innovator and thought-leading light painter Jason D. Page created the Light Painting Brushes System for people like us. We're so happy to have his support to illuminate our nights with his innovative and creative tools.
Vallerret photography gloves enable photographers to extend their cold-weather session in comfort and in style. Utilizing 100 percent merino wool as nature's best weapon against the cold and designed specifically for photographers, you can access your dials and buttons without freezing your hands.
Every brand that partners with us is one whose gear or services we use regularly, if not exclusively. Their vision creating products that enable creativity is something we appreciate as active artists and commercial photographers.
