Freaktography and Manfrotto Partnership

I’m very excited to announce that today I finalized the details of an all new partnership with Manfrotto!


Based in Northern Italy at Cassola, Manfrotto designs, manufactures and markets a wide range of camera and lighting support equipment for the professional photographic, film, theatre, live entertainment and video markets. The product line includes an extensive range of camera tripods and heads, lighting stands and accessories.

With this partnership my photos and video content will be taken into another dimension with the help of top quality gear from Manfrotto from top of the line tripods, silky smooth sliders and so much more!

Manfrotto will be the sole sponsor of my waterfall video series and a co-sponsor of my abandoned videos.

I have been using a Manfrotto tripod for several years, after having tried and destroying several tripods my Manfrotto 190go was finally the one that could keep pace!

I’ll be using much more of their gear exclusively to capture my content and will be providing reviews of their products. I am most excited to use the new Magic Carpet Slider to get ultra smooth cinematic footage!

Here is a look at my current line up of Manfrotto gear

This can be quickly extended in the horizontal or vertical orientation, giving you much more freedom to shoot from new perspectives and showcase your individual style. That means you won’t have to remove your equipment when switching position. Save those precious seconds when time is of the essence.
