|NEWSLETTER - March 2008|
Over the past few months the Photographers Portfolios section has continued to expand with great photographers now available for assignments around the world from Argentina to Zimbabwe. The map search feature has now been expanded to include search by continent. This is particularly useful when you cannot find a photographer in one country, as there may be someone located in a neighbouring one. For instance, if you need a photographer in Andorra (yes, it's a country!) you can search for 'Andorra' on our Europe map and find that we have photographers just over the border both in Spain and France, making it easy to contact someone local. The Photographers Portfolios section also allows searching by region, or closest city, meaning you can find a photographer near just about any location, just about anywhere in the world!
Here is the latest news from some of our 10,000 photographers worldwide:

|Steve Sole is taking photography to new heights with his company, Aerial Photography for You. Using a six foot, helium filled balloon that can fly silently up to heights of 500 feet, or a telescopic mast that can expand to 50ft, the team can unobtrusively take pictures of virtually any event or location even when normal access would be difficult. The mast can also be utilised indoors. Steve, who started specialising in this type of aerial photography three years ago, has photographed many different events including Sir Elton Johnís concert in Hove, an apartment block designed by Terence Conran, circus tents at the Brighton Festival. He can provide excellent aerial shots for weddings, estate agentsí brochures, golf courses, property developers. Steve recently acquired an altimeter for the balloon which allows him to photograph the view from a penthouse before itís even been built.

|Dick Mundy has just begun the process of buying a new speculative build property in France, or at least a big extension to an old one. He intends keeping an ongoing photographic diary from now on. Any one interested in this project should contact him direct. At this point in time the walls are up and the roof on so it will mostly be inside work, finishing off and then moving in, and may be some of the planning and legal side of the transaction. Pics will support an eventual article hopefully.
He is also in the midst of converting a number of digital colour images into mono in a tall thin format. Some of these will be uploaded onto the Photographers Direct site shortly.

Speaking English and having Spanish as a second language has proven to be a valuable asset for all UK and international assignments. He works out of Birmingham, a large diverse multicultural city in the centre of England. Itself in the process of flux and constant change, its location provides great accessibility for assignment photography anywhere in the world due to communication links by land and air.
His growing global collection is available to view on his web site with links to images supplied to other agencies.
Malcolm's democratic approach to subject matter can produce beautiful, innovative and fresh images in portraits, animals, architecture, landscapes, studio work and unusual situations.
Comprehensive estimates are available for guidance and negotiation on all commissions and stock sales. Call or e-mail with commissions, projects or for further information.
