My Sponsors and Partners
One of the things I like most about my work as a travel photographer is that I get the opportunity to team up with the best companies and people in the business. How do I partner with these brands? I get to work as a consultant, product tester, brand ambassador, public speaker, writer, photo educator, and yes, even as a photographer.
I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work such well-respected companies who produce outstanding products and services that I use on a daily basis. I’m always happy to field any questions about these brands, what they do, what they make, and how I work with them.
I am honoured to be on the prestigious Fujifilm X-Photographer team and I just love being part of the Fujifilm family. Over the last few years, Fujifilm has developed (and continues to develop) the best mirrorless camera system in the world. Fujifilm mirrorless cameras are the perfect fit for travel photographers like me who want to lessen their load, without sacrificing quality.
I also work with the Fujifilm team as a consultant on product development, social media, marketing, as well as doing public speaking for them at photography and travel related events around the world.
This is one company that is all about the love of photography and photographers and I couldn’t be happier to be working with my friends at Photoshelter as a writer, brand ambassador, webinar guest, and on product development. It’s no wonder that 80,000 photographers world-wide trust Photoshelter to make them shine with all the awesome website templates that they have created and continue to develop. In 5 words… Photoshelter makes me look good!
Photoshelter does not just create stunning customizable templates for photographer websites. They also make it easy for photographers to license images via their own stock photography archives on their websites, sell prints, products, downloads, and their services directly from their website. They also have one of the very best photography related blogs on the planet, host free webinars on all kinds of photography related subjects and publish awesome free guides on topics such as branding, social media, insurance, business planning, marketing, selling prints, photography website development, and so much more.
Zeiss is a legend in the photography and cinema worlds and their reputation as one of the most elite lens manufacturers in history is well-deserved. In 2014 I was named as one of the very first Zeiss Ambassadors in photography. I’m still reeling from that incredible honour, and it is constant motivation for me to live up to the same standards of quality in my photography that Zeiss has in their line of optics.
Whether I’m shooting DSLs or my Fujifilm mirrorless cameras, rest assured that you’ll find Zeiss lenses in my camera bag.
I’m always looking for ways to improve my photography and to be a more creative artist. Thanks to the incredible lineup of camera filters from Formatt-Hitech I’m able to do just that. In 2104, I collaborated with Formatt-Hitech on building the perfect all around kit of Neutral Density and Polarizing filters in the Master Filter Kit – Ken Kaminesky Signature Edition and I couldn’t be prouder. With the new Firecrest line, Formatt-Hitech has created a virtually colour cast free set of ND and Polarizer filters. You’re only as good as your tools and thanks to Formatt-Hitech, I’m working with the best possible tools a photographer could want.
As an Arc’teryx ambassador I’m lucky to be able to dress in the most durable, lightweight, weatherproof, clothes in the world. The materials and construction of these clothes are beyond awesome and make my life as a travel photographer so much easier. Even in the most challenging weather conditions I know that I won’t be thinking about how wet or cold I am and this allows me to concentrate on my photography. Incredible comfort, awesome quality, and ultra-modern style… Yup, that’s Arc’teryx.
