Thanks to Simon for the comment in my previous post regarding UK photographers’ rights for letting me know that Linda Macpherson and he have updated their handy A4 guide to reflect the current legal landscape. Get it here:
Some truly stunning images from SportsShooter.com. I’d recommend browsing through the previous winners links at the bottom of the page, the quality is astounding throughout.

There have been a several articles in the UK press lately highlighting the increasing difficulty photographers face amidst the fearful climate that’s been instilled in the general public by bogeymen such as paedophiles and terrorists. Stop-and-searches have become frequent, photographers are harassed, told to delete images and sometimes assaulted, it’s all quite worrying.
Thankfully, Linda Macpherson (LL.B, Dip.L.P., LL.M), a lecturer in law at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh, has created a superb short guide explaining the legal rights of English and Welsh citizens when taking photographs. It’s designed to be portable, so can be printed double-sided on a piece of A4 and carried in your wallet or camera bag, and gives an informative overview that covers restrictions, private property, national security and other issues:

If you’ve got a recent Canon digital compact, this DIGIC II firmware hack may be of interest. It unlocks several hidden features, such as support for RAW, a live histogram and a DoF calculator, and is “hot loaded” so there shouldn’t be any danger to your camera.
My friend Kenzie featured in a BBC article on surfing in the Isle of Man today. The main article photo and eight of the fourteen in the gallery were taken by me, shame the credits are relegated to the alt attribute!
I’ve not got a decent gallery online yet, mainly because I’m not happy with any of the Flickr plugins for WordPress I’ve tried so far, can anyone recommend anything? Maybe it’s time to have a play with Lightroom’s Web Galleries…
