Our backup equipment is the same quality gear as our primary equipment. We only use cameras that record simultaneously on the main card and a back-up card for safety.

What happens in bad weather?

In our experience, the most unique photos are taken when weather conditions are unique. There is beauty in every weather. Clouds act as a diffuser to create soft, flattering lighting, rain covers the greenery with a glistening sheen, snow transforms the landscape into a winter wonderland and sun provides amazing light to play with.
