One of the keys to the high hit-rate on Lou’s work­shops is the pho­tog­ra­phy boat that he has had de­signed to his own spec­i­fi­ca­tions. In­stead of the usual ar­ray of seats down both sides, it boasts just a sin­gle row run­ning down the mid­dle. Each seat can be swiv­elled a full 360 de­grees, so no mat­ter which way the boat is point­ing, you can still shoot in any di­rec­tion. At­tached to each is a fully-ad­justable pneu­matic cam­era sup­port, with a gim­bal head, and at­tached to each of these is a 600mm f/4 lens. Add in a lo­cal guide who knows the river like the back of his hand, and can put you ex­actly where you need to be, and you have all the in­gre­di­ents for a suc­cess­ful shoot.
