After answering an anonymous ad in the Washington Post for an engineer, Walter Boggs has been creating gadgets and solutions for National Geographic photographers for 32 years. With intense focus and drive Walter has described himself as “crazy” but admits maybe his craziness is useful. Walter literally hand crafts solutions in his workshop for any obstacle photographers come across. His inventions have helped capture some of the greatest images this world has ever seen.
