We're very fortunate to have the support of some brands that believe in photography and creativity as much as our instructors.
Acratech is a family-run manufacturer of quality and innovative ball heads and accessories. We absolutely love their GP and GPSS ball heads for all of our day and night work.
All Acratech products are meticulously machined in their small facility in California. We are absolutely amazed (and thankful) that they have somehow created a variety of ball heads under 1 pound that support over 25 pounds! Never worry about your camera support again with Acratech!
Hard drives are where our stories live. We have been using LaCie drives for many years, and their reliability, durability, speed and design are industry standards in the photo and video worlds. LaCie’s Rugged series of orange portable drives can be found in almost every photographer’s bag, and their Big series desktop RAID storage solutions range from 4 TB to 168 TB!
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.
Palette provides a suite of custom-configurable modules that you can use to tell Lightroom and Photoshop exactly what to do with intuitive motions and tools. Slide a slider for exposure, turn a dial for color temperature, push a button for picks or rejects, and so on. Choose your options to fit your workflow, and post-produce easier than ever!
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.
PhotoPills is the most comprehensive photo planning app there is, with dozens of useful features to ensure success with even the most complicated photographs. From calculating star points or trails to remotely figuring out when is the best time to get a specific shot, PhotoPills does it all.
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.
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.
Each partner brings value for the workshop attendees, too! You will have access to benefits from our partners at the workshops. Not signed up yet? Check out our workshops.
