We recently interviewed fashion photographer and Nikon Pro Brad Olson about his experience using the Case Air Wireless Tethering System, if you missed that article it’s worth the read. For this post, we spoke with three uniquely different photographers about their experience with the Case Air.
We went coast-to-coast and interviewed Todd Douglas a commercial photographer based in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, Hector Mendoza a photography student from Nashville, Tennessee, and Eddie Moran a photographer from Ventura County, California. Their unedited experiences using the Case Air are below!
I would describe my style of photography as…
Todd: I’m a portrait and food photographer with a tendency toward dramatic imagery.
Hector: I shoot everything under the sun. My strengths are sports, event, and fitness photography.
Eddie: I’m an all-around photography I photograph portraits, headshots, commercial, real estate, and personal.
How does the Case Air Wireless Tethering System fit in your workflow?
Todd: I used to have to force myself to tether. I move around a lot and seldom use a tripod, so knowing that I’d be wrangling the cords, laptop and stand in-studio or on location was not ideal. But, tethering helps me and my clients, magazines and agencies, so much to make sure we are all on the same page. In the last few months, I decided it was a no-brainer, I have to always shoot tethered. So, the Case Air is perfect – it’s small and simple and out of the way. I can plug it up, turn it on and I’m all good to go. I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark IV that has Wi-Fi and I still like the simplicity of the Case Air over the Wi-Fi setup on the camera.
Hector: When I shoot sports, I can categorize everything easily during the game by quarter or by half. It allows me to easily identify if I need to relocate or keep the same angles. During my photo shoots for fitness, my clients can easily view the images instantly. Occasionally I’ll shoot real estate and architecture and the HDR feature is such a huge help.
Eddie: The Case Air is a great tool to have. It helps to show my work to my clients right there and then on a tablet or on a laptop computer on a higher scale, larger image.
Would you recommend the Case Air to fellow photographers, if so, why?
Todd: The simplicity of the unit and the price point make it a no brainer. Everything we buy gear wise is usually expensive. The price point for the Case Air is a nice surprise from that aspect for me.
Hector: The Case Air is such a terrific tool. Easily organize or create outstanding images. Tethering is the future of commercial photography!
Eddie: I would and I have recommended the Case Air to at least five of my photographer friends that are on their way to ordering their Case Air soon.
