Coming up for 2015, we have two exciting workshops planned with Wild Photography Holidays. Photographing Iceland in early June is an incredible opportunity, with the air still crisp from spring, and the long, long 20+ hour days.

During this intimate photographic journey, we will visit glacier lagoons and beaches along the southern shores of Iceland, photograph puffins on Cape Ingólfshöfði, as well as explore some of the very best areas of the Snæfellsness peninsula.

Then in late October we go shooting with Geraldine and Martin in Spain. Come join us to explore the magnificent Picos De Europa, its villages, autumnal forests and coastal scenery of northern Spain’s Costa Verde. This workshop will be an ideal opportunity to learn how to get the very best images out of your digital camera including developing/processing your images.

Got A Canon 5D MK3?

by George on January 16, 2015

Really Right Stuff B5D3A

I have been a big fan of Really Right Stuff for many years, so I’m not selling this because I don’t think it’s a great accessory. After I purchased it I decided I wanted the L-bracket, and replaced it with one of those.

I highly recommend this bracket for a Canon 5D MK3, if you don’t want or need the L-bracket. Here’s the link to the RRS page that shows this item. Fully compatible with any Arca-Swiss style quick-release system. It’s in great condition, and I’ll pack it up and handle the shipping for the first person (inside of the US!) who sends me $35 via paypal. Just send an e-mail to me at georgej@gmail.com, and let me know that you want it.

P.S. This plate works incredibly well with the Camdapter ProStrap. Also, this is the manufacturers’ photo. The unit I have is in perfect condition – with very minor handling wear – but it doesn’t look this shiny. :-)

If You’re Purchasing Videos . . .

If you’re thinking of purchasing online videos via Paypal sometime between now and December 15, please understand that I am traveling in Northeast India with Geraldine and Martin from Wild Photography Holidays. I will have occasional access to e-mail, but my responses probably won’t be instantaneous. If you purchase using Paypal, please watch carefully for the Return To Merchant link when the transaction is completed. That link will take you to the confirmation page with your online credentials and access links.

If you miss that link or close the browser window, send me an e-mail, and I’ll do my best to get you the links as soon as possible.

Don’t forget the DVD’s on Amazon are still shipping with normal times, and in some cases the prices are the same as the online version. For instance, if you wish to purchase the Image Correction Master Class on DVD, it’s still only $29.95, and available on Amazon for immediate shipping. Click here for details. To see all our DVD offerings on Amazon, click here.

If you missed this one, click here to check out the long list of fantastic workshops offered by Wild Photography Holidays. Spain and Iceland are coming up sooner than you think, next summer!

A Workflow Essay On DAM That Never Saw The Light Of Day . . .

October 8, 2014

Photograph © George A. Jardine I was recently asked to write a piece for an organization on Digital Asset Management, and one of the requirements was that it be 400 words. I didn’t push back on this requirement, or even ask why. But it reminded me of negotiating with one of the fast-food style video […]
