I am delighted to announce the availability of a new resource for landscape photographers, in the form of a website called Tripod Holes.
This website gathers together, mashes up and calculates everything a landscape photographer might need when planning a trip. Whether you are an old, seasoned hand, or a newbie, you will find all the resources you want gathered together in one easy place to refer to. There are:
- maps and location sketches
- weather information
- tidal information
- sunrise and sunset times
- accommodation & refreshment information
The locations are all plotted on a map, or you can search through by county or alphabetically. Or if you are a more visual sort of person, you can simply browse the photos other photographers have taken at these top locations. And you can participate!
I am delighted to announce that I was recently approached by Getty Images with a view to their licensing the rights to market and sell my photography. I have agreed terms with them and had my first few images accepted and they are now available to a worldwide audience of picture buyers.
I am delighted about this development and you can be sure I intend to submit plenty more photos in the future.
If, like me, you are interested in the recently announced Nikon D800 camera – with its whopping 36MP sensor – I thought I would summarise what I have been able to discover about its availability in the UK.
I contacted the following suppliers as, to my mind at least, they are the ones most likely to have stock and be able to supply a shiny, new D800. Here is what they said – today – hot off the press.
None in stock. No information from Nikon. Please call back every week or two for updates. They have shipped around 20 units to date.
None in stock. No information from Nikon. Please call back every couple of weeks.
None in stock. No information from Nikon. It could be several weeks.
Grays of Westminster
None in stock. They have a backlog that will likely take 2-3 months to clear. They have shipped around 120 units to date.
