I cannot live without so many clever pieces of software to run my business and make my life run with simplicity.
Here are some quick links for you to take a look at what I use in my business. I only share links to the things I have tried and tested and then implemented into the way we do things here at Peary HQ. Full disclosure, these links are affiliate links.
What you see here are my most favourite pieces of software. I can wholeheartedly recommend them all.
Steady cam for your phone
ZHIYUN SMOOTH 4 3 Axis Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer
I love using this with my crew on a session so we can all have fun and capture really easy smooth phone film footage. EVERYONE on my team no matter how non-techie can get to grips with how this lil beauty works. LOVE IT!
Testing Sound On Location
Sephia SP1050 Noise Isolating in-ear Earphones Headphones
I need to check the sound quality when I'm out on location recording a quick testimonial after I've shot a headshots session. I'm often in a loud place, or we have a noisy crew on set. I can keep this nifty lil' pack in my kitbag and pull it out to check sound recording levels are right on a microphone with a great cancelling of the effect of the rest of the noise on set.
This is perfect and I really love the cute little bag. I also have tiny earholes. The selection of attachments to get 100% noise-cancelling is perfect for me!
Max Out a Hot Shoe Flash Head
The Gary Fong Kit
I bought this when I was in a bind once in NYC. The folks at B&H on 1st Ave really helped me solve a photoshoot planning problem and in the years since buying it, this kit has come in handy SO MANY TIMES!.
The different attachments in this compact kit turn that awful tacky look you associate with a hot shoe flash and make it into much more sophisticated lighting.
General Photography Equipment
WEX - Warehouse Express UK
The first place I go to when hunting for new equipment is Warehouse Express, a really friendly company based in Norwich. They have such a nice team, they do trade in's and you can buy a wealth of good quality second hand too.
This takes you to my Mention Me account with WEX so you can get £20 off your next order.
