I am a digital storyteller who grew up picking mangoes in Hawaii. In 2014, I traveled through Turkey/Israel/Jordan and put together a video and photo essays. In 2013, Nokia sponsored me to do storytelling at Social Media Week in London. In 2012 and 2011, I traveled to Kosovo to facilitate an international youth leadership conference and trained fellows on storytelling for their blog contributions. In 2011, as a journalism student at Washington State University’s Edward R. Murrow College of Communication, I particiated as the first-ever Robert A. Mott Fellow for multimedia journalism in Guatemala.

I have freelanced from several countries and currently work in Washington, D.C. as a digital storyteller and events producer for a global affairs nonprofit. I am also a contributing music writer for The Washington Post Express and blogger for The Huffington Post. Follow me on Twitter @scottshigeoka.

What equipment would you recommend?

Hi all, I work for a global nonprofit. In an effort to produce stories/content about our grantees doing incredible work in the field, I am proposing a program that trains/equips my colleagues with skills/equipment that will help them capture stories while they travel out into the field.

I am putting together a proposal for the project and I’m wondering what type of equipment I could suggest we buy? I’m guessing we would want to buy an audio recorder and a portable/light (packing/luggage restrictions) camera that takes high quality photos/videos for web and print.

Does anyone have any suggestions on specific equipment I should look into, or have any advice on how the structure of training the program officers might look like? Any ideas in general?

Thanks in advance for your help, and I hope all is well!
