Need a tripod or ring light for social media or for a self tape? Here are some of my favorite tripods and lights for actors. All of these suggestions are compact and great for travel!

1. This tripod by TONEOF is SUPER tall for a travel tripod, has a nice weighted base, and has a rechargeable remote!

2. I call this small tripod made by Ubeesize ‘The Claw’ because it attaches to everything – my car, lamp posts, doors, etc. It’s super portable, light and flexible!

3. If you’re looking for a travel ring light (that still fits in a backpack or large purse)? This one rocks! I personally don’t travel without it!

My recent Instagram post showed this travel ring light in action – The response in the comments was unbelievable:

4. The Flipstick uses NASA-grade technology to stick to any surface. No tripod needed! This ‘tripod-less’ tripod definitely wins for coolest on this list!

5. This small (but bright) ring light is great for virtual auditions and zoom calls on the go. It’s also great for going LIVE on social media from your computer!

Want my recommendations for microphones, larger lights/ring lights and backdrops for self tapes and virtual auditions? Here’s a larger list of my favorite tech tools:

This is NOT a sponsored article. And yes! I do get a tiny affiliate commission for any tool I recommend from Amazon. This small amount of $ helps me create weekly free blog and video content for you. I have personally used every tool on this list. I only share things I personally use and love OR tools my husband (who’s an actor) loves and uses for his self tapes and virtual auditions.

If you have any questions about a tool on this list – message me on Instagram! I’m @Marketing4actors and I’m happy to help!

See you on social,
