Today I received an awesome behind the scenes video from Kupo Pro Chris Garrison. Here are just a few of the unlimited options for rigging equipment with Kupo Grip. Even on location, Chris brings along a variety of pro grip gear to give him ultimate flexibility as well as the knowledge that his equipment is held securely in the elements, leaving him free to concentrate on what he does best, capturing pro athletes flying across the water, snow or air. I’ve included a timeline at the end of this post to highlight and link to each piece of Kupo Grip used in this video. Enjoy!
Go behind the scenes with Chris Garrison at the Projects in Orlando, Florida to see how he shoots rail riding on the water. He has guest Professional wakeboarders; Todd Watson, Trevor Bashir, and an appearance by Shane Bonifay. You will get some inside knowledge of how to shoot and keep your equipment safe around the water at the same time. Be sure to watch for all the small things that will help make any shoot run smoother and safer. The best part of the video is Chris will be using the Nikon 85mm f/2.8 PC-E (better known as a tilt-shift) for the first time!
Here’s one of the still images from Chris’ shoot.

Kupo Grip – Never Let Go!
A little while ago, I published a post on the amazing Convi Clamp System. Over the next couple of weeks, I will cover all of the accessories that make the Convi Clamp so versatile that it meets the needs of every image maker, regardless of whether your medium involves still or moving images.
This Convi Clamp accessory is a super strong steel “J” hook with a hex pin designed for the Convi Clamp System or Super Viser Clamps. This hook is perfect for hanging strobe packs, HMI ballasts, cables, rigging crossbars to light stands to support backgrounds, etc. They are one of the most popular accessories in the vast Convi Clamp System.
This is a shot of Profoto 7a 2400 Generator suspended from a Hex “J” Hook and Convi Clamp from a C-Stand Riser Section. They are especially popular for battery operated strobe packs on wheeled stands. Not only do they get your electrics off the ground on location when the ground maybe wet, but they also provide some extra weight for stability to save the need for a sandbag.
Never Let Go!
