Clint Buhler has been photographing for over 17 years and admits to being “a fanatic about quality.” For him, a tripod is essential and he’s tried out a good number of them over the years.
When going on a trip, Clint wanted a tripod that was the perfect blend of travel-friendliness and heavy duty sturdiness. He ended up with the Induro AT214 and BHD2 and couldn’t be happier. Watch the video for more of Clint’s thoughts on the AT214, and take a look at some of his images from a variety of different locations and image making conditions. Continue reading →
We’re not the only ones in the “In My Bag” game. HDR One, an online community for HDR enthusiasts, is featuring photographer Scott Frederick with a couple of his images and a look at the gear he relies on.
Included in his bag of tricks is an Induro CT213 and BHD2 ballhead. He writes:
“ …I’m achieving better clarity in difficult shooting conditions because of this tripod. It keeps my camera very steady, especially during a 4 minute long exposure.”
This week, we’re sponsoring the Photo Brigade’s podcast, an interview with maddeningly accomplished photographer, David Bergman.
Currently, David in on tour with Bon Jovi as his official tour photographer, but you may know him from his enormous gigapan image of Obama’s inauguration, the World Series, or the Superbowl. Oh, and did we mention that he’s also one of Sports Illustrated’s go-to freelance photographers?
David Keochkerian is the photographer behind one of our most popular posts to date, a peek inside his bag and some spectacular images he shot on the North coast of France. Because you dig his work so much, we asked to see more of his images and hear some insight into how he works.
Maxis Gamez is a Florida based nature photographer with a special interest in wild birds. Nature photography requires a special set of skills, patience and persistence for one thing, and specialized gear to go along with it.
Maxis’ review of the Induro CT414 on Outdoor Photo Gear is an informative take on the tripod, from his unique perspective. Maxis frequently works in and around water, both salt and fresh, to capture images of wildlife so he needs a tripod that could often get wet and still perform like the day he bought it. In addition, he’s over 6 feet tall, so stability at the tripod’s full extension was important to him.
Here, we’ll share some quotes from the review paired with images of Maxis and his tripod at work. Continue reading →

Matthew Hart is a UK based photographer whose inspiration is the places and landscapes of the North West of England, where he lives. Coming from a film background, his experience working with the unique qualities of black and white images is readily apparent. A look inside his bag and at the stories behind a sampling of his images follows.
In addition to the tripod itself, Abram also takes a look at the Kupo Vision Arm, a handy accessory that can be be attached to the Hi-Hat along the base plate and used to mount an external mic, monitor, or other small device.
He wraps up the review saying:
“I am happy to recommend this tripod to both still photographers and filmmakers looking for a way to shoot low angles or on table-tops without having to rig up some makeshift thing to get the shot. Well done, Induro. Well done.”
How did he get there? Read the full review to find out.
John McCormick is a landscape photographer working from his home state of Michigan, and proud of it. Michigan might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of landscape photography, but John is out to change that perception saying that, “Nowhere in the United States will you find an area that more reflects the dramatic seasonal changes, beautiful winters, colorful Autumns and springs. It’s a landscape continually changing.” Take a look at his work, and you’ll believe it.
While we love a good serene sunset-on-the-beach shot as much as the next guy, John is here to show us an entirely different side of the shore. Take a look at John’s shots of Michigan’s many lighthouses and you’ll see that a little weather won’t hold him back from getting the shot.
