Shooting Lawyer Video on Vacation- Here’s The Gear I Take With Me

This is the type of bag I use. Handles lots of camera gear.

This is the type of bag I use. Handles lots of camera gear.

You know I talk about this often. Whenever I go away to a seminar or on vacation I always take my video equipment with me. I always find time to shoot some lawyer video in a different location while the ideas are fresh.

A lot of people ask me what type of equipment I take when I shoot attorney video while on vacation.

I don’t use my iPhone. I don’t use my point-and-shoot camera. I don’t use my professional video camera. Instead, I use a digital SLR camera- and always with a tripod.

I need to show you the different categories of equipment I bring with me.

  • There is audio equipment.
  • There is video equipment.
  • Now I have lighting equipment that is small enough to take with me when I travel.

ROLLER BAG TO HOLD ALL VIDEO EQUIPMENT

Tenba roller bag with lots of compartments.

VIDEO EQUIPMENT:

  1. Canon dSLR 60D
  2. 50 mm prime lens- Canon
  3. 85 mm prime lens- Canon (this lens cost more than the camera)
  4. 55-250 mm zoom lens- Canon
  5. Two Canon OEM (original manufacturer equipment) batteries & charger
  6. Four SD memory cards (16 GB & 32 GB)

AUDIO EQUIPMENT:

  1. Sennheiser G3 Evolution Wireless Mic Receiver & Transmitter
  2. Three sennheisser lapel (lavalier) microphones (In case one breaks)
  3. Four lapel microphone clips (In case one breaks)
  4. Windscreen for lapel microphone
  5. Eight AA batteries

LIGHTING EQUIPMENT:

  1. LED light panels (2)
  2. Lightweight light stands (2)
  3. Four heavy duty batteries & chargers & electrical plugs
  4. Extension cord

TRIPOD:

  1. Lightweight aluminum 

Whenever I shoot video, I always have a bottle of water handy. It’s really tough getting your words out straight if you’re parched.

Video tip: 

Try not to shoot your video in a crowded place. Try not to shoot your video where people are walking by. They tend to be very curious and you get distracted easily. Try to find a quiet spot where you can focus on creating great quality legal marketing content that your viewers want and need to know.

In addition, I always take with my laptop with me and I never check my carry-on.

HERE’S WHAT TO DO NEXT…

Tell me what equipment you use when you shoot your video. I’d love to know.
