Scott Needham likes to take calculated risks. He's been shooting stills, video and film professionally for 10 years, capturing the thrill of extreme sports or the exotica of remote idylls. "There's nothing like jumping out of a helicopter onto a snow-covered volcano in Chile, or swimming in the powerful waves of Tahiti with a camera in a water housing tethered to my wrist."

#   Miller Tripods Review  |  London, UK
Unusually, I recently took two tripods away on a shoot, the Miller Arrow and the Miller DS20, I used them both every day for a total of 6 weeks on several episodes of a series called Extreme Homes. Since the tripods took an absolute beating in terms of use and travel, I thought I'd write up a review.
