The Ultimate One-Man Patent-Pending 9SHOOTER Rig: Increasing Annual Revenue/Money/Cashflow/$$$$ With Audio, Video, and Stills Capability

SOME FEEDBACK FOR THE PATENT-PENDING 9SHOOTERTM!
"I like your red bracket. What brand is that?" --D-Lens
"Nice equipment :)" --Wojtek Toman
"Wow, that's an insane setup." --Evan Bey, flickr pro
"I love the setup... one of the setups I'm looking for.... cool..." -- Rushh (Colors of Life)
"Nice Idea." --kaneohe247 flickr pro
"I will have to try this I'm curious of the actual turnout. the perspective of the video might be useful." --lawrence james
"I think it's a great idea!  My main function is as a photographer.  That means my MAIN concern is still images.  However, I'm looking for every single value-added step that I can take to gain extra profit with low/no extra effort.  If I can add a rig like this to my shoots , I can run video as a secondary option.  The video camera isn't important at that point as the stills are what my client's ORIGINALLY came to me for. . . We, as photographers, have to see the extra value that we can provide the clients these days.  Anyone can take a good picture with today's technology.  You have to separate yourself from the crowd by what you can offer... " --Mark Ellison
"The more I look at this idea the more I like it. And the dual camera rig is very interesting, also.  But how does the union feel about this? You are putting a cameraman out of work." --Amazing Productions
"I'm going to write a blog message about this convergence.  I see a lot of resistance to the idea on this thread and I admit I have been too.  But I just shot my first few videos myself and I have to say, it is absolutely compelling.  Mixing video/audio/stills together is a bad ass media package for just about any event, depending on the intent of the end product."--DarioImpiniPhotography
"After the shoot, I'll keep my normal workflow for the images.  I'll slice up the video into individual clips, eliminating the 90% of it that shows my feet as I talk to the model, is shaky, etc.  I'll take the best of those clips, use something automated like ANIMOTO to make it look "shiny and purty", and offer that up as an extra service to the client.  Every client loves it when I show it big-screen because it makes them look like a "SupaStar" when they put it on FB, MySpace, etc." --Mark Ellison

journalism The 9SHOOTERTM: A compact, flexible, versatile, & SIMPLE mini-multi-mount bracket philosophy for a new era of cameras and shooters.
Well, it's tough times for business out there, so we artists and entrepreneurs need every advantage we can get. The 9shooter philosophy is all about improving and expanding one's skills while surfing the technological revolutions to the max. How much money/revenue/cashflow could you add to each shoot by incorporating audio and video? $200? $500? $700+? If you do 30+ shoots a year, this could easily boost your income by $10,000 - $20,000 or more, while also expanding your client base! And $10,000 would be more than enough to cover all the pro equipment below, with cash to spare, even if you were starting from scratch!

How much value would the ability to capture HD video & HD audio be during a photoshoot for you? For that matter, how much value would it add to be able to capture high-quality stills while recording audio and video? Suppose you mounted an HD video camera under your DSLR and offered your clients--be it a wedding party or newspaper editor--a running, unedited video of everything you shot that day? A few hundred dollars here and there extra on each shoot, and it would all begin to add up!

And too, imagine the marketing potential of generating interest amongst local realtors with pictures of your rig, which would allow you to capture both HD video and stills simultaneously of any of their properties. And if you work with an assistant/partner, imagine if you both rocked out with the 9shooter philosophy?



Suppose you are a documentarian, photojournalist, or wedding photographer. Suppose you have been called to perform a fashion shoot for a clothing line, and the client just asked if perhaps you could film a video too--some audio and video from the shoot, and some behind-the-scenes video too. Well, in addition to getting a couple extra video cameras and mounting them on tripods, or mounting your backup hd-capable dslr on a tripod--perhaps you could rig up something like the following below with a compact 9shooter multi-mount bracket or two.

Cameras have gotten smaller and more powerful, and mics and lights have followed suit in becoming miniaturized! Compared to just a couple years ago microphones, wireless receivers, audio recorders and lights have all shrunk immensely, and it's time for a bracketology (bracket philosophy) that capitalizes on these trends, allowing each and every photographer/videographer to pack the maximum amount of power in the minimum amount of space. Or, we could literally spend more on one of the older, bulkier brackets than we do on quality lights/mics/audio recorders combined! (future article on this!)



MOUNT THE 9SHOOTER ABOVE OR BELOW THE CAMERA, USE 1-4 BRACKETS OR MORE AS NEEDED, & USE THE 9SHOOTER WITH STEADICAMS, TRIPODS, FLUID-HEADS, AND DSLR/FOLLOW-FOCUS RIGS:


Even the below simple 9shooter bracket configuration would allow one to mount a quality microphone/audio recorder/wireless receiver on the 9shooter bracket:

Even if you do work with a partner or two, imagine the revenue increase if all of you rocked out with the 9shooter philosophy!
