The right equipment is, obviously, the foundation of all types of visual work. This applies equally to photography and video production. It has always been that way, from the early days in the 1980s, when a good 16mm film camera or a high-quality SLR was the main ingredient in any successful filming or photography assignment, right to today’s increasingly tech savvy market where everyone and their grandmother have pieces of equipment that will make many seasoned pros pale by comparison.
It’s About More Than Just Stuff
It’s not only the equipment though (else everybody would be a successful great videographer or photographer these days and come up with excellent results). Rather, you still need a lot more than just the latest gadgets. It doesn’t matter whether these be Gopros, high-end post-processing software, or flying platforms for AP/V or drone videos. What anyone trying any of this also needs is a good cinematographic or photographic eye. Add to this marketing skills, a more general knowledge of the market, and overall professionalism. Without any the above, it’s good-bye market success very soon. Then you’ll likely end up among the millions of hours of video that make it to the YouTube archives only.
