My Creative Equipment

Listed below is my basic equipment that I use for field recordings. My goal is to record clean sounds, so I chose high-quality equipment to carry on my travels around the world.
My list covers almost everything I carry on my travels as a field recordist.

Field Recording Devices

Below you will find all my recording equipment that I carry on my travels around the world. I use compact recorders as I travel by bike or on foot and every kilogram counts in my luggage. I trust high-quality equipment to recreate the sounds I hear where I’ve traveled.


My audio equipment consists of microphones, wind shields and other gadgets that help me record the unique sounds of the places I visit. My equipment is selected so that I can experiment, but also be light during my travels.
My equipment is completely bought by me and not sponsored by anyone. I share my experience to inspire others like me to record the unique sounds of nature and places.

A Little About Me

Professional traveler traveling the world in search of unique locations for photography and sound recording.
Hello, my name is Jacob Riley. For ten years I have been traveling the world to photograph the unique places I visit. As I cycle or walk around I see and hear unique things that I record with my camera and microphones. In my library of sounds you will find both natural sounds and many others that I create while on the road. My photography portfolio is mostly landscapes, but I also create others that touch my heart.
