As video continues to rise in popularity, photographers are increasingly being asked to deliver video footage alongside their stills. It can seem daunting – how much new kit will you need? What new skills will you have to learn? But professional fashion photographer and Canon Ambassador Javier Cortés, who has made the move, says it's easier than you might think.
"I used to think you needed a lot of things to start making videos," he says. "After all these years, I understand that all you need is a camera and ideas.
"There are three things I've learnt that I wish I'd known when I was starting out," he adds. "The first is: never stop learning. Whether it's lighting, storytelling or using a gimbal, if you press on with this outlook, you will develop a lot of skills.
"The second thing is to focus on the essentials. The third is to trust in yourself. These things are my base for work, and for life."
