Giveaway Winners Announced + $230,000 Raised for Charity!

  WOW – what a week it has been! I’m totally blown away by the response that we got this year from the Complete Photography Bundle. Incredibly, we managed to raise $230,000 for the chosen charities in 5 days. Last year the same event raised $210,000, so I’m really pleased that we set a new record!

Introducing: Photo Mechanic Unlocked

I’m really excited to unveil a totally new video training series today called Photo Mechanic Unlocked. I’ve been using Photo Mechanic for many years now, and there’s a very good reason whey you’ll see this software running on nearly every computer screen when you walk into the media centre of any major event: SPEED. This amazing piece of software can totally transform your workflow! The one downside of Photo Mechanic, if you can really call it a downside, is that it has so many features, some of them get a bit lost. A lot of photographers don’t unearth all of...

The Lens I Wasn’t Sure I Could Love: Canon 11-24mm f/4 L

I picked up the Canon 11-24mm f/4 L earlier this year, and at the time it was a bit of a rushed decision. Canon was about to implement a significant price increase, and I’d had it in mind that I might buy the lens later in the year anyway. I had two worries about this lens before I bought it.

Secondly, the bulbous front glass element prevents...

Gear Check: GoPro Hero5 Black

GoPro recently launched the new Hero5 Black and Hero5 Session, alongside an impressive looking drone called the Karma. I often take a GoPro on photography trips because I like to use them to capture some behind the scenes content, like this aerial timelapse that I posted earlier in the year. Up until now, I’ve been using the Hero4 Black which shot 4k video, but didn’t have an LCD screen. If you wanted the LCD screen, you had to use the Hero4 Silver, but this didn’t shoot 4k. Frankly, GoPro’s product lineup was rather silly up to this point, but now...
