Will Crockett, commercial hybrid photographer, photo technology developer, and webTV personality is focused on learning how to master hybrid imaging. The skillful blend of photo+video+audio is clearly the future of photography, but how do we shoot and shape and share and sell these hybrid "eProducts"? Dunno, but with Will Crockett as the technical genius and unstoppable force behind this transition from shooting still photos into creating pictures with depth and dimension we will surely figure it out! : )
Will is an open, honest, bright guy that shares what he learns here on this website about hybrid, eProducts, mirrorless cameras, and all the wonderful software tools that allow us to make better, smarter images for share or the sell.
For years, non-pro photographers and pros alike have seen Will's videos, gone to his fun live events, and learned how to be a smarter photographer.
Take a look at Will's current (and classic) images at willcrockett.pro, his consulting work for clients big and small at CrockettCo.com, and the great info on hybrid eProducts and mirrorless cameras on hybridphoto.pro, and of course his premium videos at thephotochannel.pro.
Will is credited with the construction of the Lumix Luminary talent team, and the Fujifilm Elite Talent team, and is our "coach" of the Hybrid Heroes.

We’re doing well with the long-term testing on the Cool Lux brand of LED 1×1 panels and have recently switched over to them in our studio with very good results. When we initially tested them, they showed no color troubles using a color meter but when we put them into daily use we noticed a […]
