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.
