Secret Weapons

This issue, we’re having a virtual delve into photographers’ kit bags to uncover their ‘secret weapons’. These can be anything from a simple lens filter or teleconverter, right up to a complex lighting set up — but the idea is that they provide a failsafe means of getting the job done.

In some cases, they might even provide a unique selling point or a signature look and feel, making the shots more saleable, while helping the photographer, and their clients, to stand apart.

Two decades after first seeing it, Paula and Gary Yallop bought and extended their dream rural home

Paula and Gary Yallop first spotted their impressive home near Guildford, in Surrey, more than 20 years ago.
