The Petitjean Photo Master Vice


I thought that you might like to see this ‘one off’ vice that was hand-made by Marc Petitjean for me!  Marc designed the vice to make photographing flies easier, or should I say quicker. Once a fly is placed in the jaws of the vice, the vice head can be removed and placed into one of the very precisely engineered 4 head slots. This gives the impression of true rotary (through the camera) creating a 360 degree effect both horizontally and vertically !

Photographically this means that I can photograph a fly from above, underneath, the side and from the front without changing focus, moving the camera or the pedestal. Pure Genius!
