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.

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.
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.
