To our friends/fans/followers and the masses, those who love/like us and those who don't.Please take the time to read what I have to say and feel free to comment as Eva said, I invite the discussion.This image/flyer was prepared in Melbourne by C.R.Kennedy the importers of Hasselblad and Bowens, who we have done business with for over forty years, (myself personally for 16 years). Peter Coulson had 4 images that won him the title of Canon AIPP Photographer of the year 2010.There has been 4 invites prepared to go out four times and this was the first. The image chosen to be the first one going out was chosen by the head of CRK's advertising dept who is a woman, and has been with CRK for over 20 years and is a respected member of the CRK team.Further background I would like people to know, is that this was a paid commercial job by comany Raven shoes, which they loved and used in their business. There is a further story about the image and even a shot with a profile...

Sigma have recently released their new 85mm f/1.4 lens and we've just received our first one!Nicely filling the gap in Canon's lineup (between the 85mm f/1.8 and 85mm f/1.2) it provides shooters the option of having an 85mm faster than the f/1.8 and significantly cheaper than the f/1.2!The EX specification means it's part of Sigma's high quality range of glass, the 'DG' means it's digitally optimised and you can mount it on either a crop or full-frame body and the 'HSM' (high speed motor) allows smooth, fast auto-focus with full-time manual focus override.Priced at $1249, it is available in Nikon, Pentax, Sigma and Sony mounts as well....
