I've been tinkering around with my website for far too long so here, finally, is the updated version. There are some galleries to explore again to show off a little of my aerial and other photography.
If you have any interest in buying pictures for yourself or as a gift for someone else then please give me a shout to discuss options. Quite recently, I have had two requests for triptych canvases, both of which came out really well. Both were produced locally. I have a number of panoramic aerial images which would suit this treatment and brighten up any bare wall!
If anyone has a Christmas purchase in mind, then please consider that there is usually a 2-week turnaround on production since everything is done on a bespoke basis.
Having the last week of August off with the weather being pretty average turned out to be very productive for me as I finally got my Flickr dumping ground up-to-date with everything aerial and otherwise. I go very OCD with my Flickr account - all 17,200+ photos (anyone looking won't see that number as some stuff is hidden from public searches) are tagged, geotagged, and sorted into albums and collections. I dread to calculate the hours it has taken to 'achieve' that organisation.
Anyway, as a result of having no backlog, I have time for more self education and have re-started a Photoshop video tutorial course that I bought 18 months ago. In addition, I've been subscribing to some YouTube channels which offer useful Photoshopping advice. YouTube is an amazing source of information for any type of photographer. I often joke with people to 'Google it' when a question needs answering, but in most cases you will find the answer you want or at least something relevant. A lot of that is down to people (maybe like me) who take the time to add good keywording or tags to the information they share online. Here is just one example.
It's not just Photoshop stuff. A multitude of photographic techniques can be Googled and you can be almost certain that you'll find some kind of tutorial on it. Google is your friend! (Please sponsor me, Google.)
On top of taking some time to educate myself a little more, I have set up a new Facebook page called Drone Feed on which I aim to share a handful of popular and/or interesting news stories each day on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones as everyone calls them.
I have a bunch of email alerts sent to me everyday that I have set up using news keywords. They are easy to skim through for the best stuff whether it is a good or bad story, and I'll post several links each day for those interested to check out if they like.
