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.

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.


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

I think that video is the future and you’re looking 5 years down the road, I think that the importance of television and radio are going to diminish and the importance of internet is going to rise. I think that anybody seeking to get a competitive advantage in their market needs to take the initiative and work on that now. And this is an opportunity to get in ahead of the curve and gain a competitive advantage.
