Canvas Lamp with Wooden Base by CANVAS
After various DIY, shaky or awkward tripod set ups, I finally found a product that takes the difficult and guesswork out of my overhead filming adventures. This lamp and tripod combo twists, turns and moves in every possible direction easily and effortlessly. It comes easy to set up right out of the box and the wood lamp base comes in various options to suit your decor. There is also a desk clamp attachment if you have less desk space to sacrifice.

Print Products by MOO
MOO is my absolute go-to for my printed products like business cards and post cards for my business. The UK-based online print company offers high quality paper options and specialty finishes. Best of all, you can order small quantities and they offer an option called Printfinity which allows you to print different images on one side of say a postcard, at no extra cost. Check out the selection by ordering a free sample pack.

Creative Cloud Suite of Products by ADOBE
As a graphic designer and artist I use Adobe products on a daily basis. Photoshop for example is a powerful program that I edit all of my photos and artwork for print and web in. Illustrator and InDesign help me create the ebooks and documents that I share and sell, and Adobe Fresco is my new favourite program for creating editing my preliminary line drawings.
