Never seen without a camera (or far from one), Feroz picked up the art of photography from his grandfather at a very early age (at the expense of destroying a camera or two of his).

Review: Vanguard Alta Fly 49T Roller Bag

If there’s one thing that photographers are obsessed with, as much as with bodies and lenses, it’s camera bags. In the nine years or so that I’ve been shooting professionally, I’ve owned no less than 10 different backpacks or roller bags. Most of them have been phased out as my gear list got bigger or as my personal requirements for a camera bag changed. Despite looking them up before, I’ve never owned a Vanguard one so far.
