YoungBlood Photographic makes accessories for photo professionals. Why? Because WE ARE photo professionals. Just look at some of our outside and elevated shots:
We have taken pictures from airplanes, blimps and cranes. Those modes are expensive and difficult to execute. And they were the motivation to create our PhotoPoles. Our mission is to create photo accessories for professions that are “faster, better and cheaper”. We also want to take advantage of all the new cameras including smartphones and the affordable, high-end DSLRs that even support broadcast quality, 4K video.
The company was founded by David and Steve Youngblood, brothers from the same mother.
