Photography Chat Yorkshire

Photography Chat Board

Photography Chat Board – As much as leaving most social media has been a release to me I still miss photography and general chat and friends. I have tried forums on here before as some of you know, at the time ‘spam bots’ spoiled all and I did not have multi-language support on the page, times have changed and I now have the time and resources to deal with any false posts and users, I also have multi-language support as […]

Amazon Basics Backpack for SLR Cameras and Accessories Review

This Amazon Basics backpack was the first dedicated camera backpack I bought when I first took up DSLR photography back in 2013, so the bag has been thoroughly and literally tested to destruction by me out in the field. For £28 ($28) you get a very well designed, sturdy and practical camera bag, perfect for those just starting out in photography.
