Most people might not think that the life of a photographer is very dangerous, but if that’s your chosen profession, you know differently, especially if you’re an urban or wildlife photographer.
If you wander into the wilds to photograph the animals that live there, you know that each time you turn a corner, you could come face to face with an angry animal. If you’re very lucky, the animal will be just as surprised to see you as you are to see it and will turn and run the other way. If not, you will have to defend yourself.
Another very real threat that wildlife photographers face is getting lost or staying out later than they intended. Tactical flashlights are very efficient and use LED light which means the photographer will have a bright light to help guide them back to camp. Having a reliable flashlight can often be the difference between getting home safe and never getting home again.
Urban photographers don’t necessarily have things any easier. While animals and moonless nights might not be something you have to worry about, muggers are. All it takes is one look at your expensive camera equipment and you can look like an appealing target.
