All aerial photos are shot with the DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quadcopter. This is one of the best machines I have ever purchased. It can fly over a mile and record great photos and video at supreme 4k resolution. Just plug it into your iPad and you can watch video, check battery status and do much more

My current camera body of choice is the Sony Alpha 7R series camera. This camera sports a tremendous pixel resolution and shoots as a “full frame” image. The build of the camera and quality is amazing. It also weighs about 1/3 as much as a similar Canon or Nikon model. This is ideal for our world travels, and makes photography easy while on tour internationally.

These cameras are expensive for amateur photographers, but the image quality is tremendous. This lens allows you to take landscape photos with ease.
We purchased the most recent version of the GoPro camera in April of 2015 and are using it to document our road trips, hikes and scuba expeditions. At the moment I don’t have any video to share, but that will change soon hopefully.

My tripod is especially designed for travel. The MeFoto Aluminium Globetrotter Travel Tripod Kit has been a workhorse for me. It attaches to my backpack and goes with me nearly everywhere I visit.

Purchase Prints of Photos from Jeffsetter
When I first started getting serious about taking better photos, I was doing it for myself. Looking at photos from others, I knew that I could do better with my own photography. Over the past two years I have been reading several articles a day on how to become a better photographer and also shooting my own photos 3-5 times a week.
I never imagined that others would like the photos enough to want to purchase them to use as art in their homes, but this is exactly what has happened. Several friends have printed my photos for their home and used them as artwork hanging on the walls. One friend even has a 3-piece canvas of my photos in their San Francisco apartment.
Because of this popularity, I am now offering photos for purchase on the Jeffsetter photo store. You can view photo selections here:
