As an amateur photographer and budding videographer, I am always looking to improve the quality of my pictures and videos. This pursuit led me to capturing game film both for analysis purposes as a coach, but also for the purpose of creating scouting/highlight films for college-bound athletes.
After spending time on the sidelines fighting for a good spot to capture the action, I thought there could be a better way of doing this, so I started the search for an elevated photography platform.
What I found was that the ones that were currently on the market were very expensive, or poorly designed or were attached to expensive video services that were not practical to pay for on an ongoing basis.
Therefore, I invented, trademarked, and patented my own as the FOTOPOLE® G1.
Since then, we have added the Fotopole® Pro and the Model I.
What is FOTOPOLE® ?
FOTOPOLE® is the innovative, convenient and affordable elevated photography mount that is perfect for capturing the action from an elevated perspective so that you are sure you see everything.
We have two distinct models that serve the purposes of both professional and amateur photographers alike.
The Fotopole® Pro is designed to meet the needs of outdoor photography with the ability to elevate your camera position up to 15 feet and is able to be setup on the sideline, on any uneven surface, such as the stands or a hillside or serve as a traditional tripod all in one portable and convenient package that collapses down to 43 inches and a few pounds and can go in an overhead bin on an airplane. Professional photographers love the Fotopole® Pro for its portability and ease of use. By eliminating the need and expense of scaffolding and reducing setup and teardown time while offering the convenience of a single piece of equipment that can be used regardless of field conditions, professionals and amateurs alike are now able to capture high quality video from any position with ease.
The Fotopole® Model I is the ideal solution for anyone who is capturing video from home. During 2020 many of us are working from home extensively and video has become the way we connect with co-workers, students, customers and family. With that being said, most of us have "home made" camera stands that elevate the angle of our laptops or external cameras to try and optimize this experience.
The Fotopole® Model I simplifies this experience in a convenient, easy to use package. With a simple folding base, the Model I can provide you a mount for any consumer camera using the interchangeable ball head and is ideal for mounting your phone (in the included roll cage) or tablet (in the included tablet holder) or sports camera or any other remote connected device to your laptop or desktop. The Model I give you complete control over the capture angle and position without the need for the camera crew allowing you to capture high quality video at your desk, in front of your whiteboard, or while playing your instrument, etc. In short, the Fotopole® Model I is your personal camera stand for any need.
This platform is made of the highest grade materials and quality construction for the amateur and professional alike. We make the FOTOPOLE® to last and only out of the highest grade materials including carbon fiber and machine-grade aluminum. All Fotopole® models are designed to reach an elevation high enough to see the entire field of view while being able to collapse down to be easily carried to the field, court, etc.. We have taken great care to assemble these units in our US-based facility and hope that you will enjoy years of use!
Thank you for your interest in taking your photography to the next level and for your interest in FOTOPOLE®.
