Thank you to our sponsor Manfrotto for supporting our first annual Youth Photography Contest! Manfrotto is an international camera and lighting equipment maufacturer and supplier. They design, make, and sell products to over 70 countries across the world. They carry several brands such as National Geographic, GITZO, Avenger, and their own in house Manfrotto brand.
For our contest, they have been generous enough to donate a tripod. The person who is lucky enough to receive this prize will be getting a high-quality photo tripod that will withstand almost any situation.
Some of the products they offer:
Street Camera Backpack
Travelling as a photographer requires very specific luggage and a barebones camera case won’t always hold everything you need. When it gets to that point, a camera backpack or messenger bag may be necessary. The type of bag you choose is dependent on how much walking you plan to do, how much equipment you have, and what you feel comfortable carrying. This camera backpack is great because it has a pocket for a laptop and spots to stick additional lenses. It also has a stylized look to it that most camera backpacks miss.
BeFree Color Aluminium Travel Tripod kit, Grey
This travel tripod has been voted as the best lightweight tripod of 2018 by lifewire.com. It’s both compact but also durable enough to handle most DSLRS. The BeFree tripod can be helpful for night photography as well as long exposure shots as it provides the steady base that is required for that kind of photography.This tripod is ideal for travelling and even comes with its own travelling case.
Video Monopod with Sliding Rapid Connect Plate
For the video enthusiast, a monopod can be necessary to steady shots when you have to move and shoot. This monopod also features a suction cup on the bottom to ensure stability when the monopod is resting. This monopod is also taller than some monopods so it can allow for over the head shots in crowds. If you dabble into videography or you shoot a lot of sports and wild life, this monopod could be the one for you.
Whether you need a video or photo tripod, a new camera bag, lighting stand, or even a drone, Manfrotto has all of your photography and filming needs covered!
