Our Story

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 and am now ready to bring it to market as the FOTOPOLE®  G1.

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.

No more obstructed sideline video. No more paying through the nose for "professional" game film.

This platform is made of the highest grade materials and quality construction for the amateur and professional alike. The FOTOPOLE® G1 is a carbon fiber and machine-grade aluminum photography platform that is ready for both indoor and outdoor photography. It extends to an elevation high enough to see the entire field and collapses down and can be easily carried to the field, court, etc.. We have taken great care to procure the highest grade components and 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®.
