For the studio photographer on location or shooting environmental portraits, connecting a studio strobe to a battery pack, battery-driven power pack, or pure sine wave inverter frees one of the constraints of plugging into an AC outlet and worrying about tripping circuit breakers or blowing a fuse, and it removes wires that could prove hazardous (combined with wireless syncing of the flash, I might add). And wedding and event photographers who rely on portable strobes that run entirely on external battery power are well familiar with the benefits—power that lasts and keeps pace with the event. There are countless choices, whether you’re just starting out or looking to upgrade or expand your lighting system.

On the road, it's not always about transferring picture files to a portable
device. Many of us take our laptop computers with us, transferring pictures
directly to the computer, often for immediate previews while shooting on assignment.
And what folly that is without some means of backing up those pictures from...

Today's high-resolution digital cameras eat up lots of memory. High-capacity memory cards cost as much as a portable hard drive, so why not use a portable storage device and transfer card memory to that drive? Portable hard drives are battery-driven and most employ a 2.5" disk drive, while a few use the more expensive 1.8" drive. As an alternative there are...

Power And Performance

I literally got a charge out of seeing the plethora of chargers and both reusable and primary batteries at PMA this year. (By the way, when you see the word "primary," it's the politically correct term for "throwaway.")...

Where would our digital cameras be without batteries? And with the 2005 PMA Show coinciding with the Daytona 500, is it any wonder that speed was at the heart of battery technologies this year? The big push in rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) battery technology focused on fast chargers, especially those with 15-minute charge cycles and faster, along with higher and...

Erik Almas is truly passionate about his photography and will go to great heights to shoot a picture—literally. He and his camera have gone mountain climbing, skydiving, and flying in microlight aircraft. That said, most of his images are shot on terra firma.

Beyond that, he will spend upward of $10,000 on a personal project to create images he strongly believes in for his portfolio. The project may involve travel with a crew and hired talent and renting gear where needed. He does not believe in limiting himself or his creative vision, and his clients appreciate that.

After 10am, depending on the time of year, the usable light is pretty...
