Lakenheath 27th August

A last minute decision to have a drive to Lakenheath last week. Not the busiest of days, nor the best of days behind the camera. But a few of my efforts 1. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50292984818_7c74215ae4_h.jpg RAF Lakenheath 27/08/20 by Michael Hallam , on Flickr 2. https://live.staticfli...

Re: Selling licence rights to pictures

The main thing to consider is, how much do you value your time? What's the image going to be used for? If its commercial to promote something then charge more, as they will be making money from the use of your photo. I had a photo of mine used at EICMA bike show in Milan at the end of 2019 by a brak...

My first year in the FRIAT enclosure, and most certainly not my last.

Re: F1 2019

Shameful from the stewards to give Seb that penalty - destroyed the battle between Seb and Lewis in the closing laps. If anything, you tell Seb over the radio to give the position then let them duke it out on track - 5 seconds was disgusting. As said previously, no where to go. If Seb had tried to m...

Re: Camera bag for Sigma C 150-600mm lens

I brought a Lowe Pro Runner BP 450 AW II, around 18 months ago to fit my Sigma 150-600 Sport attached to a body. It was worth every penny in my opinion. I fit 2 bodies (D500 with 150-600 & D7200 with 70-200) in, plus smaller lenses. MacBook Pro 15inch and batteries and all other smaller bits nee...
