  • Avenger c-stand

    Avenger 9.8′ C-Stand 30 Kit, Chrome

    Our light stand of choice. Heavy, and all that. But the durability, flexibility it gives you out there in location land is worth the effort to haul ‘em along.

  • avenger baby pin

    Avenger 6″ Long Nail Pin

    This little sucker makes the C-stand work. Slip it into the grip knuckle and you’ve got another pivot point. I would say, if you have a C-stand, this is a necessary attachment.

  • MF 1004BAC

    Manfrotto 1004BAC 144″ Air Cushioned Aluminum Light Stand

    This variety of Manfrotto stands go with us everywhere, in varying numbers and sizes. The stacker feature gives them a thinner profile for packing. Good stands, though we’ve had some issues with the locking mechanism breaking off- which enables them to stack.

  • Manfrotto Justin Clamp

    Manfrotto Justin Clamp

    Had a hand in creating these, and made the mistake of not asking for a royalty on them. Man, they’ve sold a lot of these. My bud Justin Stailey, responding to my complaints (what else?) came over to my studio years ago, and cobbled this together from existing Manfrotto off the shelf parts. Hence, the Justin clamp was born.

  • Frio Cold shoe lock

    Frio Universal Locking Cold Shoe

    We were introduced to these by the Strobist himself, and have really come to love them.  They hold up better than just about any spring-loaded flash cold shoe, and have a built-in locking mechanism that you don’t even have to think about.  They’re also a perfect addition to the Manfrotto Justin Clamp, who’s cold shoe from the factory tends to be a bit tight with some of the newer flash units (SB900, for one).

  • Manfrotto Variable Firction Arms

    Manfrotto 244N Variable Friction Arms with Super Clamps

    What in the world would we do without these? I use them all the time to clamp lights and cameras, steady tripods, and just in general get things into a place and locked down.

  • Avenger 12x12 Butterfly_2

    Avenger 12×12′ Butterfly Frame w/Silk

    Bring her about laddies! Set sail! You better have few people on the set with you if you’re thinking about setting this up. Outside, it’s crazy. Slightest breeze and this thing will kick your ass. Read More →

  • RRS BH-55 wLR

    Really Right Stuff BH-55 Ballhead with LR

    Our go to ball head that comes with us everywhere (we have three of ‘em, for when we need to mount multiple cameras). Expensive, but rock solid, and well worth it.

  • Gitzo GM5541 Monopod

    Gitzo GM5540 Monopod

    Gitzos are the gold standard of tripods out there. Period. The g-lock feature makes them even more desirable in the field. That is, when you need a tripod, which is a situation I desperately try to avoid.
