Wilderness Film Permits – The Fine Print?

This was just brought to my attention because this piece in the Washington Post was then posted on the Shutterbug and NPPA site. I’ve seen these headlines a lot over the decades so I clicked on the link to the Federal Register to read for myself where it states: This language is taken right from Proposed Directive: “The current language has been in place for 48 months. This proposal would make permanent guidelines for the acceptance and denial for still photography and commercial filming permits in congressionally designated wilderness areas.” This is not new, been in place for 48 months, that’s four years now. I am not a lawyer and I could be totally wrong, but the language in this Proposed Directive is about the same as what you read when you apply for a permit in a National Park to conduct a photographic workshop / commercial shoot on those public lands. The difference here is the price is much higher. I strongly urge you to click on the...

Think Tank Prod Mngr 40

Think Tank at Photokina yesterday announced their new, monster of a case, the Production Manager 40. Now you might think it looks familiar, that’s because I use the Logistic Manager 30 for my Profoto B1 lighting gear. As can see in the photo above, the Production Mngr 40 holds 4 Profoto B1 units where the Logistics Mngr 30 holds 2. That gives you some sense of how big it is. So, you can carry your gear or ship your assistant around in this case with the utmost protection...

Nikon D750

Nikon has just announced the D750 DSLR Camera (along with the 20f1.8!) and will be shipping it next week.

If you’re looking for the specs, you’ll find them here. Once I have one in my hand, I’ll pass along my thoughts on...

Warbirds and The Men Who Flew Them

This coming Friday, the 12th at 7PM EST, Wabirds and the Men who Flew Them will have its world release. Many have asked when the next Kelby Class on aviation photography will be coming out. This isn’t it! This is a film and Scott and I will be hosting a live webcast during its premiere. Ya, you could say it’s about air to air photography, but that’s only the means to an end. The film is about how the Texas Flying Legends Museum through their squadron of WWII warbirds honor our vets and inspire future generation. Thankfully, I have a minor role. It’s the vets themselves who I interview on camera and the aircraft that are the stars. To be apart of this event, you need to click on the link and register. What you’re going to see has never been done before but through you, will hopefully be carried on to the next...
