The NSW Sapphire Coast and camera gear rental and with Davey Rogers

Is there anyone showcasing the stunning region of the NSW Sapphire Coast better than the exceptionally talented Davey Rogers (@davey_rogers)? This week we chat about his love for the area and returning to his birthplace after leaving a successful career in print media working for some of Australia’s largest companies to chase his passion for photography. Does gear matter? Does having access to the latest gear make you a better photographer? Does it influence your own drive and motivation to get out shooting more if you have the latest camera gear in your hands? We discuss this as well as the benefits and disadvantages of renting gear both through traditional means, and through the new Kyōyū platform operated by Canon Australia. Davey gives his opinion from a very informed marketing background about just what the Kyōyū platform and any potential competitors in this market means to the photography industry, both from a content developer side as well as from the opinion as gear owners. Davey gets mugged by whales and dives into the water with someone else’s rental gear (not really 😆). We get wet chasing seascapes and I test the waterproof rating of some of my gear. The food venues in Bermagui close down when they see me coming with a workshop group. A travel influencer is caught with the same clouds in multiple images she has shared. Listen in to hear more and get inspired by a guest whose passion for photography is second to none.
