One Massive Kupo Studio Giveaway Ends, and the Next Begins…

giveawaysKupo Grip and the Phoblographer are happy to announce the winner of our Dream Studio Giveaway. After Michael Thomas of California was reassured that this was indeed not an April Fool’s prank, he excitedly accepted our congratulations and began making arrangements for a whole ton, (almost literally) of professional studio gear from the likes of Kupo, Bowens, Canon, Induro, Sekonic, and much more to be delivered. We sincerely hope he has the closet space…

If you were one of the over 60,000 entrants who did not win, there is an even bigger giveaway that has just started. Our latest Kupo Filmmakers Ultimate Studio worth over $12,000 tempts you to try your luck once again. In cooperation with our friends over at the Phoblographer, and support from Sigma, this massive movie maker’s mix includes a full set of Kupo grip gear, a Blackmagic Design cinema camera with two Sigma lenses, a Comodo Orbit gimbal, and a slew of other accessories from: Benro, Sekonic, Limelite, Tenba, and more. Just like our last contest, our new Filmmakers Ultimate Studio Giveaway also includes an online session with Kupo Gear Guru Jason Friedman, where you are free to ask him,“how the heck do I set up all this stuff?”

Live “Ask the Gear Guru” Session with The Phoblographer

Hey Kupo Kompadres,

 Tomorrow Wednesday, August 7, 2013, I’ll be joining Chris Gampat of The Phoblographer during an hour long Q&A “Ask the Gear Guru” session at 1:00 PM EST (6:00 PM BST). For those of you who don’t know yet, here at Kupo Grip, we offer a free service called the “Gear Guru“. What is a Gear Guru you may ask? The word “Guru” is Hindi for teacher. With years of experience both as a professional photographer and selling photographic equipment for over 15 years gives me a unique understanding of both the tools and technique of photography. 

ASK JASON – PERSONAL GEAR GURU – AT YOUR SERVICE

Jason – The Gear Guru

  

Jason Friedman is a professional photographer with over 20 years experience concentrating on fashion and beauty photography. He specializes in lighting for both studio and location, using both strobes and continuous lighting sources.

Jason acquired a ton of gear knowledge as a 15 year previous employee of B&H Photo Video Pro-Audio where he has worked in several positions, including manager of the lighting department as well as a marketing representative involved in trade-shows and seminars both domestic and internationally. Jason loves to teach and has taught seminars in subjects ranging from photography, lighting and his last gig, teaching Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom aboard the National Geographic Explorer for Lindblad Expeditions. Jason is also a vegan foodie and has embraced food photography as his latest photographic pursuit. Currently Jason works as as the Kupo Product Marketing Manager for the MAC Group.
