The gear we decide to use varies from shoot to shoot.  If it is a complex shoot, or we’re not quite sure what obstacles we might encounter, we’ll bring everything AND the kitchen sink!  If it is a familiar setup and a location we’ve used before, we’ll likely just pack the essentials. Though we are based in Boise, we often service locations within several hours of the Treasure Valley (Sun Valley, McCall, Twin Falls, Baker City, La Grande, etc.).

As an overview, most shoots will include some mixture of the equipment below.

The rapid evolutions of tech and gadgetry are constantly changing the way the production industry thinks about capturing imagery, for both amateurs and professionals alike.  AI, 360-degree VR cameras, handheld gimbals, and pocket-sized drones.  Great storytelling can be leveraged at the convergence of these technologies.
