ABOUT OUR RENTAL PRICING. *ARE WE THE CHEAPEST?

*Please read this… it could change your future….seriously..

Are we the cheapest? We think so when you add a little time into the equation. To explain let’s ask you a question - Are you the cheapest photographer in your town or speciality? Do you aspire to be the cheapest? Do you aim to market yourself as the cheapest? - if so you need to surround yourself with the cheapest suppliers and that will surely attract the cheapest customers - you will work with the cheapest Models, the cheapest Assistants, the cheapest Retoucher, the cheapest Production Company, the cheapest Hair & Make-Up and the cheapest Rental House.

As a Photographer you are relied upon to come up with the goods every day - the complexity and load always varies but however big or small your team, when things go wrong there is nobody else to blame as you are at the top of that creative pyramid. However much fun is being had by the myriad of people on a shoot, there is always an end client with a goal and you are charged with delivery of a great result. You need quality people, gear, facilities and people around you to ensure you come up with the goods and attract and retain the quality clients. If lowest cost is your priority then you are likely to stay in the lowest fee part of the industry.


So in the short term, sometimes we may be a little more expensive than someone else (not always) - but running a real Rental House and Studio is not just about taking a Warehouse as a Studio, buying a little gear, cross renting a lot, staffing it with the cheapest people and undercutting your rivals. A real rental house has breadth and volume of stock, the ability to roll with changes as you or your client make creative changes, people who have real product knowledge, and can give advice and opinion when asked for and answer their phones in an emergency - when it hits the fan we can usually help:) We help people build their careers, build and retain their client base and grow their fee structure. In short we add value to you, which makes us a great investment for you as we have invested in the facilities, gear and people that support people who aspire to be great or stay great. We can’t do that on the cheap - so if you aspire to be cheap then we probably don’t work for you, because we can’t afford too and keep our standards high. You are not buying sneakers online here - you are looking after a career. We are pride ourselves on building real long term relationships - our clients are not just business - we need to support you; as we like to work with those who have high standards and recommend us.

So to summarise for a marginal difference (not always) we really believe you are investing in your future and putting yourself in good company in a great environment that sets the tone for your career path. Don’t be the cheapest because we can’t; because we are good:)

INNOVATATIVE & BEAUTIFULLY ENGINEERED TRIPODS WITH A FIVE YEAR WARRANTY


New to 3LT? Not so well know in this region until now; in Europe and the States they have carved a solid reputation for beautifully engineered and relevant tripods backed up by a reassuring 5 Year Global Warranty.

Three Legged Thing Catalogue
0



We think the Carbon Pro Models represent the best Travel Tripod System available today with our favourite better known to his friends as …Albert… who wouldn’t want a tripod called Albert? Albert has a winning blend of features suited to the modern travel photographer up his 3 short sleeves. With surface beautiful engineering prowess (in two colour ways) Albert shows some impressive vital statistics that make him an ideal travel partner. At a folded diminutive 41cm he sits on a backpack with ease and when asked can stretch his legs to 179cm, this impressive height is achieved by utilising a solid three stage centre column that uses the same exquisitely crafted locking mech found on the four stage legs.



With ultra low shooting possible, a max payload of 30kg, reversible column, detachable 1.2m Monopod built in, interchangeable footwear options and a super smooth Airhead 360 + Arca compatible plate; we think Albert should be considered as your next travel buddy. Drop by HotCold Studio or see him online.
