#WeLoveFreeStuff

We travel to some epic locations and the gear needed to do this has to be pretty tough. This means we only promote and work with companies who produce high quality equipment that can stand up to vigours of wilderness trekking in Tasmania. 

If you think your equipment is up to this challenge then please contact us and we will put it through its paces. In return we will send you high res images, make a few posts on social media about our experience and add you to our website.

C'mon, why post crappy images on the web or pay some photographer to take static images when we can give you gorgeous hi-res images of your equipment in the field... remember, we love free stuff.

Aquatech

Aquatech are manufactures of professional photographic accessories such as Sport Housings for professional photographers and cinematographers and mainly focused towards surfing and ocean sports.

We have used their sensory gloves, sport shield rain covers and tripod soft wraps. These are all quite unique in their own way and have made it possible to capture images in extreme weather conditions. The gloves and tripod wraps have been a favourite of ours because of the harsh winter conditions we regularly experience.

The gloves have little holes for your fingers tips so that you can operate phone screens and camera buttons without having to take the gloves off, sooo good in harsh cold temperatures when those little pinkies are freezing. The tripod wraps are there so you don't have to hold onto that cold steel and swap from hand to hand, cmon I know this sounds a little weak but we've all been there and once yopu have them youll never be able to live without.

People ask us how we get the milky way to be in the right place when we take our night shots.

The answer is we move it around by hand...Joking. No, we plan the shots by going to the location and using a sweet little app called Photopills.

Have you ever walked through a place and thought: "It's too bad the Moon isn't RIGHT there... would have made a great photo!"? What about the Sun? and the Milky Way? This app lets you calculate when this specific magic moment happens in just a few seconds!

It does way too many things to list, check the website out, if you're into night photography then its a must have.

Walsh Optics are our go to people for camera equipment in Hobart. Francis and the team are genuinely interested in helping customers and I feel like they are trying to give me the right advice rather than trying to sell me something.

 The after sales support is spot on and we can testify from experience that their prices are just as good, if not better, than some of the online stores.

 They stock houses film and digital cameras, binoculars, spotting scopes, magnifiers, studio lighting, light stands, batteries, bags, cases, flashes, tripods, cleaning equipment, filters, lenses, memory cards, daylight lamps, magnifiers, microscopes, specimen preparation equipment, optical levels, laser levels, survey GPS, handheld GPS, compasses, geological compasses, scale and map equipment, distance meters, rangefinders, tree height finders, flagging tape, marking paint, measuring tapes and, well, you get the idea.

We believe in supporting local business as well, so if your trying to source some new gear or even just get those filthy sensors cleaned drop in and see them in Macquarie St, Hobart.

Nikon are gracious enough to lend us equipment for some of our projects and we greatly appreciate their support.

Two Tassie Togs always have and will be 100% Nikon supporters! We love their equipment and the satisfaction we get from using it.

Camera brands are a personal thing but as landscape photographers the Nikon D800 couple with their 14-24mm wide angle lens simply cant be beaten.

If you're looking to get serious and buy a DSLR, compact camera or even look at their lens range then follow the link below, you won't regret it.
