7 Things Every Photographer and Videographer Needs

As a photographer or videographer, you tend to carry a lot of gear while on the job. From lighting equipment to camera bags, there’s an array of tools you can add to your business to help make your life much easier. We’ve compiled this list of six things every photographer and videographer need. We hope you find this list helpful!

1. SD Card Holder

Due to how slim and small SD cards are it’s a good idea to have a card holder or wallet for proper storage. Can you imagine having to tell a bride that you lost the memory card filled with her wedding photos? The news would be tough to break and the bride would be devastated. However, with a memory card holder, you can ensure that your SD cards are stored safely and organized in one place.

2. Lens Cleaner Cloths

Your camera goes through a lot of wear during a shoot. The lens could collect dust, fingerprint smudges, or dirt. With a lens cleaning cloth, you can easily remove the unwanted residue and safely clean your delicate lens.

Go on and take that extra lens, flash, or battery pack along with you. A technical belt can carry several pieces of equipment and will keep you hands-free while you’re on the move. Get yours here.
