A couple of years back, I met the team from Platypod while at PhotoShop World. As with so many people and companies in this industry, we shared a lot of good friends. Since then our paths have crossed many times, and I'm excited we're now part of each other's "families." In addition to sharing great how-to content from some of the industry's finest artists at SCU, you'll also see them as a sponsor of "Beyond Technique," with a new podcast guest each month.

If you don't know Platypod products, check out the video below. It's about the original Platypod Ultra. Now there are two models from which to choose. This company is all about quality and accessories that solve so many of the challenges in capture. There's Ultra, Max, an accessory kit that adds to Platypod's range of use. and even the new goosenecks (lights not included), perfect for macro work and more.
I love companies who are problem solvers and contribute to the creative tools photographers have to capture the very best images...in ANY situation!
Stay tuned - there's a lot of exciting content coming your way.
