CLOTHING / SHOES: When photographing streams, tidal pools and while on the beach, a sandal, that holds the ankle, or Teva style shoe that is designed to get wet, may be the best choice although they may cause blisters. Neoprene socks may help with this. Andy usually wears a winter jacket, hat, shorts and Tevas when photographing on the beach. In summer the water is chilly so many prefer to wear knee high rubber boots.
