Not every event requires an expensive album. Clients want a high-quality way to display their images without breaking the bank. Press Printed Books are an economical way for you to add value to your product offering and give your clients the quality they deserve.
Look, there are all sorts of options when it comes to light. Different prices, different sizes, different power options. “Cheap” rarely works with anything in life, and it surely doesn’t work with professional lighting. I’m not debating that there are give-gets with every decision we make. It’s truly no different than the decisions we make with our cameras and lenses or the computers we buy. There are always trade-offs.
With the Acrylic PRO you are able to offer your clients a product that stands out from the crowd, literally. CG Pro Prints has newly revamped their Acrylic to provide a product that commands a room like no other. With a distinctively crafted mount frame, the Acrylic PRO extends your images right off of any wall.
As many of you already know, I am a huge fan of the Panasonic GH series, and have been onboard since the GH3. I love the quality and price point of the video that comes off these cameras. It’s incredible. The recently released GH5 is already a workhorse in our studio.
I love Flex lights. They are easy to use, very powerful, cost-effective, they throw great light and they’re extremely portable. They are not just for video. Read my article on commercial shoots in this issue, where I talk about how we used two of the 1x1 Flex Panels to light some food photography.
There is no substitute for speed. Investing in a f2.8 lens is a must for any photographer working events, weddings or portraits. It gives you that extra stop or two of light needed to work in low-light situations. More importantly, it gives you shallow depth of field, so your subject pops off the background. If you are looking for a cost-effective, fast-performing lens, the new Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 zoom is a great all-around lens.
If your reaction is anything like mine, it’s going to be one of shock and awe. I am not kidding you. When this product hit my desk, I dropped a few choice four-letter words. In a good way. It’s different. It’s impressive. It’s something I know my clients will want. That’s what it is all about, isn’t it?

2017 is a great year for photographers. Technology has advanced at such a rapid pace, and continues to offer some of the best tools available to do what we love doing. With all the options, how do you choose a primary camera system? Wedding shoots comprise a mixture of product, portrait and action photography—so how do you know which system works best for all these needs? I recently tested multiple camera systems to see which came out on top.
