Introducing TerraPod Pro™ The idea for the TerraPod Pro came to me about 10 years ago. I was getting tired of carrying my heavy tripod around, even when I knew I was going to be using it at its lowest adjustment for landscapes where I was planning to be as close to the ground as possible. I worked in a machine shop so I decided to make something small, lightweight and sturdy that could replace my tripod for many situations. I carried around and used what became my TerraPod Pro prototype for years. Other photographers were always asking about it and where I got it. Finally, after a trip to the Grand Canyon in 2011 (where my TerraPod™ received a lot of attention and interest) I decided to try to provide this invaluable tool to everyone who wanted it.
