Hey friends, I'm
@claycookphoto and I have taken over @benrousa!

This is a selection from "La Mirada de Belleza" a fashion editorial our team captured right in the heart of Havana, Cuba. We worked directly with the Cuban government to get all the necessary permits and licenses to bring the melting pot of style that is Cuba fashion to a tangible American medium. We wanted the people, we wanted the bustle and we wanted the noise of Cuba. We used the Benro A373F Series 3 AL Video Tripod to mount our tether station for super mobile client viewing.

The @benrousa 75mm Hi-Hat with the S6 Video Head is the perfect travel companion. I often travel with the Hi-Hat for capturing timelapses or long exposure photography. It’s heavy duty legs are built to withstand wind and cold, which is what we experienced this particular evening at Moir Hut Camp on Mount Kilimanjaro 13600 Feet. Check out the IG stories for more BTS!

A Maasi woman clutching her child while withstanding a rouge dust storm in the Monduli region near Arusha, Tanzania. I’m asked a lot about my humanitarian photography and why it’s important to me. This year, two-time NFL Super Bowl champion Chris Long and his NGO @waterboysorg achieved the initial goal of funding 32 water wells, which has enriched the lives of nearly 150,000 Maasai people in Tanzania, Africa. I had the incredible privilege to ally with Chris to achieve a new, loftier goal: serve 1 million people in need. That is why it is important to me.

Caught in the wild. In this behind the scenes I’m using a @benrousa TMA48CXL Extra Long Series 4 Mach3 Carbon Fiber Tripod with the G3 Low-Profile Triple Action Ball Head. I just love this setup as it’s not only heavy duty and built to withstand all the production abuse, it’s lightweight enough to travel with. I often use a tripod on a commercial production when I’m working with a @phaseonephoto camera system or need to dramatically increase the ambient light by dragging the shutter.

This is @baddiewinkle for @stash_app and the campaign "Live Your Best Life, Your Whole Life." This project was an combination of concept and talented people brought together for an incredible end placement: my photography of Baddie painted on the side of two buildings in Brooklyn, New York. BTS to follow!

A view from Third Cave Camp, Mount Kilimanjaro, 12500 Feet. Yes, that’s me. @nadusfilms and I have had the fortunate opportunity to travel around the globe locking arms with various foundations who are making serious change. In 2016, we and @wingsofkili traveled to Africa’s highest peak Mount Kilimanjaro to be the first to paraglide off the summit and raise money for clean water and education for the people in Tanzania. Then in 2018, I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro for a second time with @waterboysorg to represent the miles that many African women journey on a daily basis to fetch water for their families. Our collective mission has raised millions of dollars and served hundreds of thousands of people with clean water.

Ethiopian people are proud of their culture, religion and heritage. But, their eyes gave me a sense of desperation for more; a need to reach and achieve a better life. Photographing this project in Addis Ababa was one of the more difficult assignments I’ve ever had. In partnership with @nadusfilms, this project raised awareness for an amazing foundation Youth Impact that saves one child at a time from that poverty and danger through art, education and mentorship.

Believe it or not, I use the Benro ProAngel Monopod, not for stabilizing a camera, but for a collapsible "lightstand" to be used on location. The ProAngel Monopod is just 14" inches collapsed, but can expand to over 64" inches. While it's a perfect tool for exotic editorial projects, we've also used it on commercial projects such as this campaign for the new season of "Swamp People" on History Channel. All you need is a simple baby stud with a 1/4”-20 female thread to mount any light!

When I first watched Jennifer on the big screen, I had no idea that our paths would one day cross. At that time when I first met Jennifer years ago, I wasn’t a photographer, just someone who desired more and worked relentlessly to accomplish a dream. I just wanted to earn it. This is my portrait of Jennifer Lawrence. #jenniferlawrence

I've used a lot of tripods, monopods and various support systems over the course of my career. I'll be honest, I don't like being locked down. But, there is always a time and place when stability is absolutely necessary. Fortunately, @benrousa has made a line of supports and stabilizers that not only provide the right dependability for the shot, but also the durability to withstand any extreme commercial project in any part of the world. It's rare to find one manufacturer that produces such a quality product for such a reasonable investment. Benro has nailed it. This weekend I’ll be taking over the @benrousa Instagram, sharing stories, photography and behind the scenes. But first... I'm giving that Carbon Fiber Slim Travel Tripod away to one of you! Just follow @benrousa and @claycookphoto then simply tag a friend below and you could be the lucky winner. The winner will be chosen at complete random. Stay tuned.

The Benro Tripster is a reverse folding travel tripod that also converts to a monopod.
Available in three sizes, three colors(Black, Blue and Titanium) and your choice of aluminum or carbon fiber, this travel friendly tripod is well suited for small lightweight cameras up to full frame DSLRs.
