While joking around with a friend recently, photographer Ted Forbes of The Art of Photography decided he would try his hand at building the ultimate selfie stick. What resulted is a monster selfie stick that Forbes has named the Stork Mach 1.
Forbes’ creation features an iPhone at the top, a GoPro on the front, a microphone with a self-contained recorder on one arm, and an LED light on the other arm.
This rig may be a bit over the top, but if you’re interested in building your own rig for mobile photos or videos, Forbes discusses some recommended pieces of gear you might want to combine. Here’s his 10 minute video about those essential items:
