School and Sports Photography – Streamlining Your Workflow

As a school and sports photographer, you know this challenging field requires a trio of skills — people skills – how you make that human connection; technical camera skills – how you use your equipment; and business skills – how you manage your time and workflow. And that’s where Tether Tools fits into the picture.

Tether Tools can help you streamline your workflow, increasing your efficiency and ultimately, allowing you to produce better images and therefore increase your sales. Tether Tools has options for studio and location photographers of every style – need the flexibility and freedom of connecting over Wi-Fi? Check out the Air Direct. Able to remain stationary as your subjects come to you? Cabled tethering could be the answer for you. Either way, Tether Tools has you covered.

Watch the video of Minneapolis-based photographer Matthew Kemmetmueller while on location during a major-volume school shoot. Matthew’s camera is connected digitally to his laptop using a TetherPro USB cable. His monitor is at eye level atop a Tether Table Aero, and mounted on a Tether “T” Setup, ensuring Matthew and his team get the shot, every time.

The Tether Tools Tether “T” Set Up bundles the Rock Solid 4-Head Tripod Cross Bar with the Rock Solid 2-Head Cross Bar Side Arm allowing for adjustments to your camera without the need to raise or lower your computer. 

Ideal for school shoots, simply adjust the vertical bar to the appropriate height as subjects enter and exit the frame. The Tether “T” mounts to a male ⅜” screw. If you’re like Matthew and you use a stand, you’ll want to use the Rock Solid Baby Ballhead Adapter to connect.

The Tether Table Aero provides photographers with a stable, portable tethering platform, perfect for daily studio use and the ideal out-of-studio workspace. It attaches easily to virtually any tripod or light stand and is compatible with all standard mounting hardware.

Aero Clip-on Hooks attach to any flat edge of the Tether Table and are ideal for hanging lightweight items such as cables, cords, or other accessories.

Last but not least! Matthew uses TetherPro USB Cables with JerkStopper Camera Support to connect his camera to his computer.
