Ferrell’s book HDR Photography

About Us

FM Photography is a small company that designs innovative products out of necessity. Ferrell McCollough started the company in 2005. As a professional photographer he uses real life experiences while photographing to develop new products. The ShutterHat and ShutterHut were the result of his need for better camera protection when shooting outdoors. He wanted a camera cover that protected the camera in a light rain but allowed easy access to the camera controls.
In the area of macro photography Ferrell felt there was a need for a tool to hold items and also steady flowers in a moderate breeze. He designed four different McClamps to improve his photography. The McClamps were originally used in the garden but now have made their way into the studio to help position reflectors, flags, fabric, paper and much more. McClamps are also used in the laboratory setting for holding items for many tasks.

Ferrell also wrote a book about the new and exciting techniques in HDR photography.
