    Our professional photographer’s recommended gear

    Head torch

    Guy’s an agile chap, and swears by his natty head torch (a Petzl costing £30). The tungsten lamp is ideal for adjusting 
DSLRs in low light and keeps his hands free while he’s clambering over slippery rocks.


    Our professional photographer's recommended gear: hotshoe spirit level

    Hotshoe spirit level
    Dave loved Guy’s pro-standard hotshoe spirit level. “Quite a few of my photos weren’t level – the spirit level on my tripod is hard to use in poor light.” Guy also uses a Really Right Stuff BH55LR ball head with lever release, available only in the US.


    Our professional photographer's recommended gear: torch

    Torch for painting with light
    Guy uses a five million candle-power torch (Argos, £25) to ‘paint’ coastal scenes with light when the natural light starts to fade. See how Dave gets on with this technique on page 120. You need an assistant to hold the torch, but the results can be really spectacular.
