What I Use For Filming and Photography

2016 MACBOOK PRO 15″

I use this for everything, editing, filming, producing and memes. I personally do not like Mac’s and all Apple products to be honest, but this beast has performed perfectly for what I need. A a hefty price of $3800 you’d hope so. In the media field i’ve discovered everything is done on Macs, so I needed to join the club eventually. Purchase this here:

ROKINON FISHEYE LENS:

Back when I used to film skateboarding, this lens was my life. It produces some of the most unusual shots and really help your photos stand out amongst the crowd. I’d highly recommend this brand as it is very inexpensive and reliable. When taking photos of cars you’re able to capture the full object whilst being very close and intimate with the vehicle.

18-55MM EVERYDAY LENS:

Perfect for car photography, basic filming and everyday shots. This actually came with my camera In a bundle pack, but I’d still highly recommend it if I had to suggest a basic starter lens. Although It lacks in the zooming area, it truly makes up for it with it’s incredible autofocusing capabilities. Purchase this here:

TRIPOD:

Every filmer/photographer needs a tripod. This cost me $20 a few years back and does the job perfectly. It is very adjustable although sometimes feels as if it is about to snap. Nonetheless, has never let me down. Purchase this here:

55-200MM LENS:

This is my favourite lens I’ve owned, it is what i’ve used to get those focused shots there trees as soon below in my blog posts. This unfortunately costs a bit more but you truly get what you’re paying for. I cannot stress enough the fact that you can stand almost 50m away from your subject and take photos clear as day. Highly recommend this bad boy. Purchase this here:
