Cliff Mautner shows you why you need an AC3 ZoneController

May is WEDDING MONTH at PocketWizard. We are bringing you people, ideas and photos that celebrate the craft and tools of wedding photography. 

We love Cliff Mautner. Why? His no-nonsense approach to both photography and education is direct, uncompromising and produces results. And, simply put, his wedding and portrait images ROCK. We asked Cliff to tell us why the PocketWizard AC3 ZoneController plus MiniTT1 (Nikon & Canon) and FlexTT5 (Nikon & Canon) changed the way he shoots – overnight. You may remember Cliff from some work we did with him during the release of the MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 for Nikon.

Those two things – the dimension and texture of the light – create a mood that flat light doesn’t have. By getting the light off the camera, you can create angles of light that give you the texture, dimension and mood that you can reach out and touch. – Cliff Mautner

Cliff uses one light on a monopod off-camera to achieve his stunning wedding photography. The light he chooses to control manually via his AC3 ZoneController creates depth, personality and vibrant colors. Cliff chooses to deliberately avoid flat lighting, using his one off-camera flash to create these scenes where the focus of the photo is clear, and the bride and groom are stars. By using manual control, he can switch lenses, distances and adjust with the ambient light – all the while knowing that the things that normally trick TTL will not affect him.

Here is a mini gallery of Cliff’s images for your enjoyment.

Cliff Mautner’s Delicate Balance

Growing up in New Jersey, Cliff Mautner has the kind of professional photographic experience no new shooters get these days. When attending college in Southern New Jersey, he answered an ad in the local weekly newspaper. The ad read, in part, “Award-winning weekly newspaper seeks photographer.” At nineteen years old, he was hired, “just because I had a pulse,” he laughs.
