Photographers and Artists


Looks like we have a few photographers and artists in our midst so here's a place to talk about all photography, art, and related subjects.

As per Kay's request a bit about Steven's camera mast system. I was unsure whether to post this here or the camera section so feel free to move it.

First its kinda hard to describe what he does without giving his web site as some people find the idea to hard to imagine, but that is advertising so just bare with me.

Basically he has a telescopic mast that can go up 70ft via a winch system. On it he has his camera (D700) which is on a tilt head. It has a USB on it to allow live view, zoom, pan 360 etc etc. It is mounted onto the back of our truck. He takes pics for estate agents, construction, commercial clients - garden centres etc for their web site, CFB Trenton etc. He called the company Polepics.
There's loads more to see and do on British Expat— why not check out our home page?

Hi Caroline, nice to see you on the main forum. Thanks for being considerate about posting links but since I asked you a specific question about Steven's mast system - and I'm sure many other people would be interested to read about it - it would be a shame not to give a link. So here it is:

PS, I think this probably would be better on the Photo/Artists board, so I'll move it there now. 8)

Nice little business idea. Hope it prospers as it deserves to.

... must be more fun that the eternal round of weddings, etc.
