Part of the “Pro Tog, Cheap Camera Challenge” series. Pro photographers from around the world take on the challenge to use one cheap camera to do a pro photo shoot. But just what will happen?

We take David to photograph: a snake master with an orgy of snakes (including cobras); bamboo bouncing noodle makers; sealing stone making; a bright yellow Lamborghini and a Shaolin Monk martial arts expert.
