Matt uses top of the line equipment including Canon cameras and lenses for photography shoots and Panasonic 4k cameras for videography shoots. Drone productions are filmed with top of the line GoPro cameras and drones designed specifically for filmmaking and production. Depending on the depth of the video projects we also utilize professional sliders and steady cam technology for smooth, dynamic and dimensional shots. The results are stunning.
