The Story of SqrShot™ Development

I am excited to introduce SqrShot™-  the perfect tripod-mount solution for getting the same shot every time!
One of the most impactful experiences of my life is when I was introduced to Rolfing® Structural Integration back in 1999.  I was so inspired by it that I set out to train with the Guild for Structural Integration (GSI). During the training we took photos of people before and after their sessions to document changes in the body.  Seeing structural changes in structure and posture really intrigued me.
For a number of years, I was lucky enough to be the teaching assistant and student/model photographer during many classes at GSI, which meant that I worked a lot with the photo software in use at the time.  I was able to take the camera and software into my practice and use it every day.  I discovered that when the camera was set up in the same spot every time the photos showed more changes in the body than if they were taken in random places.  This is due to what’s called Parallax.  Seeing the before and after photos helped me dramatically improve my bodywork skills as I could see the changes in the body from one hour to the next. I became more efficient as I learned what did and didn’t work.
Several years ago, I set out to design a  program for use with current platforms and Body Align Pro™ (BAP) was created – an App which enables professional practitioners to track their client’s progress through photographic comparison. For the best results, I had to find a solution which would allow users to put their mobile device in a tripod mount that wouldn’t move, avoiding fluctuations in Parallax.  I went through many mobile device tripod mounts and none of them allowed me to remove or place the mobile device in it without bumping or moving the tripod. It is imperative that the tripod does not move at all!
After testing many prototypes in my practice,  I am ready to make SqrShot™ available to anyone wanting to take accurate photos with a mobile device.  I use both BAP and SqrShot™ every day in my practice and I love it that my clients often tell me how they appreciate the photos because it helps them understand better what to look for and to become more attuned to their body’s position in space. Using SqrShot™ enables me to take the most accurate posture photos possible.
SqrShot™ is made of a very strong plastic; so strong that we are able to thread it during the manufacturing process so that it can attach easily to any standard tripod.  We include two threaded mount points,  so you can place the device on either side, depending on your needs.Keeping in mind that some phones have the camera in the center, I was careful to make the depth so that the camera does not get blocked.The depth can be adjusted so multiple devices can be used with it, plus the mount comes with two sizes of screws, 1/2″ and 3/4″. 

The larger size gives you the option of leaving the case on your device, for example with an iPad. And the smaller screw works for thinner devices, like the iPhone 6+.

You can see that the screen for the iPad (3rd generation shown) is not at all blocked by the mount.

Since the mount is made of a very strong plastic, it is sure to last a long time.

My goal was to design something that would stand up to the constant changes of mobile device designs. because every year there is a new device with a different size. SqrShot™ adjustable design

I hope you enjoy this product as much as my clients and I do. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me here.

Thank you,

Yes I am really talking on the phone with it in the mount! While I was shooting the pictures for the website my phone rang and my daughter got this shot of me. 🙂
