Welcome to our website! I am Eva, a professional photographer and the founder of MyTravelTripod. And this is my husband Alain, a photography lover and travel addict. We started MyTravelTripod to deliver the most in depth reviews of photography tripods available in the market.
It all started in 2014 when I decided to buy my first camera tripod. I had already started my professional photography career but I had no clue about tripods and how to select one. The problem was that there were too many tripods available in the market but not a single reliable source reviewing them and providing guidance. This is how MyTravelTripod journey began.
Who we are
Learn more about the team behind MyTravelTripod:
Our reviews and guides are the result of information we have gathered from public sources as well as tests that we have performed and experienced.
Our research process starts with setting the review criteria for each situation. For example, if you are looking to buy a tripod for travelling, the selection criteria will be different than those for buying a tripod for your studio. After we have selected the criteria, we combine our experience with market research and photographer’s feedback in order to come up with our top recommendations.
We do not only look into the users’ reviews but also into how each tripod compares with its competition. We compare again and again, trying to bring the best products to our community.
We hate the cheesy language of online marketing and promotion so we strongly focus on unbiased and practical guidance. This is why we only recommend products that we already use or that we would use ourselves.
Why we do that
First of all, we love photography and we believe tripods are the photographer’s best friend. We also love seeing our readers being satisfied with their tripod choice and sending us their feedback. Our readers’ feedback has helped us improve our guides and adjust the research criteria we use.
If our readers buy a tripod using our link, in many cases we receive a commission from the manufacturer. These commissions are very similar for all products so we have no incentive to promote a particular product. Like all humans, we are looking for profit but our top priority is to create value and keep our readers satisfied, this is more important for us and for the long term success of MyTravelTripod.
So check out our reviews and let us know what you think. We would love to hear back from you and we welcome your feedback:)
