Help with me uni dissertation


Hi there, I'm a photographer at university, and I'm trying to get some information about photographers and their flash guns. The problem is that there is very little information about it on the internet. So can you help me by answering these questions.
Do any of you own a flash gun?
How many do you own?
What soft of flash gun do you own?
And do you use a wireless trigger?
Thanks for your help if you did answer theses and if you know of information that I'm looking for let me know where please. Thank you.

I really only use flash for a bit of fill unless there is absolutely no chance of getting any sort of exposure without it.
