Equipment I use
When it comes to capturing my travels, I mainly use my mobile phone to film but there are a few other bits in my kit bag that help make it seem a bit more professional!
The great thing about this set up is that it’s really easy to just start out with your phone and then add extra items as and when you can.
I always say that the most important thing is to just give it a go! So use what you have and then come back here to see how you can take it to the next level.
Video Editing: Premiere Pro
I use Adobe Creative Cloud as it means I always have the most up to date software for a monthly cost. You can also bundle it in to include other software such as Photoshop, Audition and Illustrator.
Music for editing: Epidemic Sound

Gimbal – Zhiyun Smooth 2
I use the ‘Zhiyun Smooth 2’ – however this is no longer sold. Zhiyun have brought out a newer model which are actually cheaper as they’re made out of plastic – but they do the same job. There’s also a good starter gimble on offer from DJI and Hohem too.
Microphone – Røde
The sound quality is so much better since I started using this external microphone.
Camera – iPhone 13 Pro Max
It’s a LOT to pay for a phone, I know, but since I also use it to operate my ENTIRE LIFE FROM, I think it’s worth and makes capturing my travels super convenient.
Mini Rig Magic Arm
A recent purchase – and one I’m very happy with! This has been perfect for attaching the microphone to the gimbal.
