Reviews

I am a professional videographer with over 20 years of experience. My job has always involved higher-end video equipment like like DSLRs. So when I decided to buy a Hero 6 I wasn’t really sure what to expect. This book really helped me understand the nuances of using a GoPro. The examples illustrate what to do in different scenarios. You’ll get so much more joy out of your GoPro after reading this.

Teaches pretty advanced techniques in an easy to understand way. I read a couple other GoPro books and this is by far the best. Definitely recommend it if you want to step up your creative game.

This was perfect for me to get started. There are a lot of different recommendation for story-telling and filmmaking. I am so excited to make my first GoPro video on my next trip now.

I looked all over the internet about how to use the Hero 7 and I came across this book and i’m super happy with it.

The author describes technical information really well and offers great examples, which made it simple for me to understand not having learned about this stuff before. I usually don’t do reviews but I felt compelled. It’s definitely worth the read.

Since earning his Bachelor of Electronics Engineering from the University of Brighton (UK), Andrea has traveled the world as a professional filmmaker, combining his two passions, art and technology, to create location-based and human-interest stories people love to watch. Wherever Andrea goes, a GoPro is always nearby.

The idea for The GoPro Handbook came as a result of many of Andrea’s network asking for his help editing videos, shooting a time-lapse or simply how to set up their GoPro to get the best and most cinematic shot.

Moreover, with so many people using GoPro as a gateway to the world of videography, Andrea knew he had to do something.
