Tip of the hat to Native for making a superb kayak for photographers...Here in Louisiana, we do a great deal of swamp photography.  That includes not only handheld shots but also with tripods for bird shots.   Steady, easy to paddle and easy to tow to our most remote locations.....

 

In fact, we are hosting a big photo tour in the Atchafalaya Basin in a few weeks....Since we own Natives ourselves, we have rented nothing but Natives for our attendees......

 

BTW if your interested in the kind of things we do, here is the website for our upcoming workshop.....https://spark.adobe.com/page/I6kNS/

Looks like a neat place and neat adventure. My favorite photograpy boat is the FX15. It hauls a ton of gear and is very stable. I've found that the Slayer14.5 feels a good bit more unstable while looking through the lens. I've shot out in the water wading but never thought to sit in the boat and put the camera and tripod over the side.

The FX !5 is super...many a person has been in first as a passenger....later once they are confident that their gear won't get soaked, they are get their own.....and for long hours, the seats can't be beat....

I'm new to kayaking and Native but a I'm a landscape photographer with a new Ultimate FX12. Looking at the pic in this thread of someone standing in chest-high water with a tripod. Are you just using the boat as a floating equipment dolly while wading? If you jump in and out of the boat, I'd be interested in how you manage that from the water. Thanks!

If I'm hopping in and out of the boat, I make sure the gear is in the Pelican case or a dry bag. Getting in and out isn't a huge ordeal...make sure the water is about mid calf deep and just sit side saddle in the seat and spin around...I almost always use this method for getting in anyways. It is much easier on the knees and back. Getting out is just as easy...spin to the side of the boat with your legs in the water, and then stand up. In the FX, it is easier if the seat is in the high position.

 

I like the idea of using a power boat as a mother ship to get you to the tighter waters.
