How To Support Gear Seekers – Monthly Update – March 2018


If you’re new here and you didn’t come from any of our other channels ill give you some background on who and what we are. Think about this a bit of a crash course in all things gear seekers.

I wanted to give you all a bit of an update on the channel and also some news related to this channel as well. Don’t worry its all good stuff.

Firstly I just wanted to say thanks so much for the support and all of your comments. We are really feeling the love from you all.

I’m an ex-IT professional and tinkerer turned filmmaker, photographer and music producer with over 10 years experience working in datacenters and software development. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. I’ve also worked as a commercial photographer, Camera operator, Director and DOP on many film projects and even written music for TV shows. I have a passion for creating and gear seekers is no exception.

My wife Klaire and I started this channel as a bit of way to share what we were doing outside of YouTube. I had a channel, well i still have it but don’t upload to any anymore, that’s a story for another day, anyways, that channel focused primarily on film making and sharing our journey but I felt like it had run its course and it was time to share a bit of a lets call it behind the scenes look at what we used to create our films and music for all of our projects. That’s right, we also make all of the music you hear in these videos as well.

This idea quickly shifted into our primary focus. We decided that we wanted to create some educational content about cameras and tech for people of all skill levels. Really make it easy for everyone from all walks of life to understand. We found a way to create content that revolves around everything we love and share it with the world.

I know a lot of you have been missing the camera content but don’t worry there is heaps of it coming so make sure you’re subscribed with those notifications turned on. Moving along.

We’ve expanded this idea outside of YouTube and created a whole platform dedicated to cameras, tech and everything in between. Why did we do this. Well its because we really believe in what we are talking about. We are passionate about it and we want to share that passion and expertise with you guys. There is a link to our official website in the description as well.

Along with with the small successes we’ve had with the channel and website in the short time we’ve existed, we have been given the opportunity to work with some really awesome brands, companies and people for content that is coming out starting in april. I wish I could say more but you’ll just have to wait and see what we have in store. I can tell you now, that its super exciting and if you follow us on Instagram you would have seen us teasing some things in our Instagram stories. Tha’ts the other thing. We like to give you a live behind the scenes looks at everything gear seekers on Instagram. Go and follow us there if you haven’t already.

If youre new here you may not know this but we actually upload 3 to 5 times a week and som’etimes even 7 days a week. We aim to give you at least 3 videos per week but are really striving to be your daily fix for gear, tech and camera related content. But we cant do that without your support. Which leads me into the next topic. How you can help support this channel.

You may have seen that recently we posted a video called Franken PC number 1. This is a monthly series we want to continue doing where we use old computer parts we have laying around to build some decent gaming PC’s and also some workstations as well.

The reason were talking about this is because we want you guys to contribute as well. If you want to donate parts to the cause.

If you decide to send us stuff make sure you include a little note about yourself and if you’ve got any social media or website you want us to shout out were happy to do that as well. Also if you want to send us anything at all you can send it to that address as well.

Another way you can help support the channel is if you’re considering buying anything we talk about in our videos we actually have links in the description where you can buy stuff. Each of those purchases actually indirectly helps us with being able to get more cool stuff to do videos about.

The other way you can help support the channel is by becoming a patron on patreon. Yeah I know. Another channel talking about Patreon but we feel like we have some really cool stuff to offer in the future. Not only that but since were a really new channel, even though were YouTube partnered were not eligible for monetization just yet. We will get there but right now Patreon and affiliate stuff is the only way we can keep this dream going for now.
