Hello and welcome!
Well, it’s 2012 and we managed to finish 2011 with quite the bang – In A Bag, for those of you that skipped along with us (all 32,456 of you) ..it was great fun! But that was then… this is now!
So, 2012, what will we be doing this year? I can tell you right now that we have some great products on the design table, that’s all I can tell you right now – but we’re thinking that it’s going to be an exciting year!
We have a couple of great competitions in the planning stages for this year, too! (We would love your feedback below on what you think would make a great competition) so, that’s something to look forward to!
Share The Moment is humming along, with loads of you submitting images – we’re going to start featuring those a bit more! Here and on Facebook and so on… We love photographs of you guys using our gear in the field / on a boat / in a plane / underwater?!
A little more on “Share The Moment” below, but first, @DownUnderAudio posted THIS on our Facebook wall – rumours of the pending Canon 5D MKIII... I have a MKII, I love it, I won’t be approved by the ‘minister for finance’ to make that purchase, but it’s nice to dream right? (orig post here?) you can read more on Canon Rumours
And back to Share The Moment, I wanted to share a couple of images…
Here’s a recent photo from Australian photographer, Gavin Blue of a really, really big shed! Gavin, amongst other things, photographs very large trucks, so a very big shed makes perfect sense!

And here’s a photograph of sports photographer Raf Sanchez shooting the Red Bull FlugTag in Hong Kong and carrying his gear in a Skin Chimp Cage and Skin Strobe.

So, while you’re waiting for us to kick off some crazy competition, or release a new camera bag (You know, the one that alters matter and actually makes your gear lighter when you put it inside!) …here are a number of ways you can stay in touch with us!
Instagram – an easy way to share little photographic snippets of what’s going on in your world! Our Instagram is a collaboration of myself (Simon) and others, with Pulitzer prize winning photographer and co-founder, Deanne Fitzmaurice whipping her iPhone out from time to time, Kurt Rogers also travels with his iDevice and joins in the fun (I’m hoping Kurt will cover WPPI for me, Kurt? nudge nudge, wink wink) and Chris Butcher has been known to take a photo or seventy with his iPhone, too… I’ve yet to get him Instagramming – time will come.
(As a side note: I’ll be giving away a handful of books via Instagram over the next couple of days – some great photo books!)
Twitter – Chris, Randy, Doug (not THAT Doug) and I all stick our hands into the Twitter pot, you can ask questions, get feedback, tell us how much you love us… Oh, wait, did I get the love / like thing all confused? Follow us on Twitter.
We hope to be bringing you more of what you want and less of what you don’t, very soon.
