IMPORTANT: Hours and pickup locations may be impacted due to the coronavirus. Only equipment available for rent during this time is Fuji GFX cameras and packages. Canon equipment and anything not Fuji GFX/GF related is not available until further notice. Rentals above $200 may be an exception.
Pickup and Dropoff Times Below (Subject to change based on availability. Some exceptions may apply. Please reach out if you'd like to pick up or drop off at an irregular time and I'll try to make it work)

Want a custom photo or video package? Message me with what you're looking for and in most cases, I got everything you'll need!
I can sometimes deliver equipment at no extra charge for larger rentals (Above $500) and the delivery address must be within a 10 mile radius of Toluca Lake. Otherwise there will be an additional fee if you request delivery and if I am available to deliver that day. I unfortunately cannot make any guarantees of my availability. Usually I cannot provide delivery services and you will need to pickup the equipment from my office in Toluca Lake (Burbank Area).
9:30AM - 6:30PM Monday-Friday
Availability varies on the weekend. Reach out to me and in most cases, we can work out a weekend pickup or drop off. You may need to pickup or drop off in Pasadena or Woodland Hills instead of Burbank as I do not live in Burbank. I typically do not do same day pickups on weekends or national holidays. For more information, please read below.
Last Minute Weekend Gear Requests:
I unfortunately can’t provide gear on the weekends unless I receive the request during the week. This is because the gear is locked in an office that can only be accessed during week days. If you have a shoot on a Saturday or Sunday, let me know by 5pm on Friday and I will hold the gear for you. If your rental is over $250, I may be able to make an exception. Please reach out and I will try to accommodate you.
The absolute minimum rental allowed is $18. If your order falls below this amount, it will be subject to an additional fee equal to the amount of your order subtracted from $18. Example: a $15 order is subject to a $3 additional fee.
Out of Country or Near Water:
If you plan to take the rented gear out of the country OR in/around/near bodies of water such as lakes, oceans, or pools, you must let me know when you make the rental request or before you make the rental request. This is not optional. Using my gear for drone use is usually ok but you still must let me know that intended use before you rent. Thanks for understanding and happy shooting!
Cleaning Fees and Repair Fees
Equipment brought back in a lesser condition than was originally picked up by the renter may be subject to a cleaning and/or repair fee if found necessary by me. These fees may be charged to the renter if the equipment is returned dirty, covered in sand, dirt or dust, if significant dirt, sand, or dust is found inside the camera, dents or large scratches are found on the camera or lens body/barrel (not previously present on the equipment), and other physical damage found. Of the hundreds of rentals I've done, I've only had this become an issue on two occasions. I have a very lax policy compared to rental houses. Cleaning fees for dirt, dust, and sand on the exterior part of the camera/lens body are $50 to $100 per camera and $30 to $50 per lens. Dirt, sand or significant dust inside the camera or lens is an additional fee that can range anywhere from $40 to $350 for full frame cameras and lenses and $50 to $500 for medium format cameras and lenses. If I cannot clean the equipment myself, it will be sent in for professional cleaning with CPS or FPS and the renter will be responsible for the entire cost I am charged for those services.
Scammers and Thieves PLEASE READ BEFORE "RENTING":
If you plan to "rent" and not return gear, I suggest looking for a gear owner who won't come after you. I work directly with the Burbank PD, LAPD, North Hollywood PD, and several other city, state and national law enforcement agencies around the country. I have successfully caught thieves in the past year and it is not fun for anyone involved. I have NO problem finding you, regardless of the city or state you're in. Trust me when I say it's not worth it. For those of you who plan to return gear, thank you for supporting individual owners like me who put a ton of time and money into our gear and this profession.
