Newsletter November 2015


From the Heights of the Sky to the Depths of the Earth


Welcome to the latest newsletter from Photographers Direct!
This issue our contributors are showcasing images ranging from stunning high-up aerial images of France to powerful mining shots taken deep down below the Earth.
Naturally, life in all its wonderful variety is covered at ground-level too.

The HOsiHO library gives us a bird's eye perspective on French landscapes and cities by skilfully using drones, whereas Kevin Palmer has gone in the other direction and created a virtual photo studio 3,000 feet below ground.

French topics are further covered in stunning detail by Patrice Aguilar and, skipping to the other side of the World, James Brunker is capturing the essence of Bolivia, Peru and Chile and distilling it onto his new website.

If you are after images of motorbike track speed and action then David Kimber's Bike Photo Library is the must-go place to look, but if you are after something more contemplative Erin Naillon has some cool shots of Europe that are worth spending time with.

Finally, Dave Reede Photography has a mammoth collection of images from nature in Canada, including an extensive library of agricutural photos. And you can't get more down to earth than actually farming it!

HOsiHO announces fresh new aerial stock images of France!

HOsiHO is a large online library collection of fantastic aerial video footage and photos, mostly shot by drone (UAV), and taken by a group of more than 30 talented professional photographers and cameramen based at the four corners of France.

Through the library you can license high-quality material immediately online today, including video 4K.

Here at HOsiHO, we love the creative possibilities offered by drones. They offer new ways of capturing the beauty of our world, especially the landscapes and cities of France. We represent the very best aerial film makers so that we can supply picture buyers with aerial images depicting the outstanding natural and architectural sites of France.

Our aerial images and videos are produced using a variety of aircraft that are duly empowered to operate in France, e.g. drone, microlight, helicopter, aircraft, paramotor, hot air balloon etc. And we are fully licensed to operate in France.

We are energetic, growing fast and constantly adding new images, so please come and visit soon. And check back regularly as we're always updating our collection.

Be sure not to miss those top French locations already waiting for you in our database: Verdon gorges, Normandy, Pont du Gard and region , Loire valley and Chenonceau castle, Mont-Saint-Michel, Marseille, Lyon, Avignon, Paris, Provence villages, Alps, Mont-Ventoux, ...

And if it turns out that we don't have the footage or photograph you urgently need, we can shoot it very quickly through our network of partners and make it instantly available online for you to download: please check the Shoot-on-Demand service!

Looking forward to serving you soon!

Photographer Kevin Palmer has spent years dividing his time between shooting adventure and recreation in the great outdoors of Ontario and Manitoba and the spacious studio he's created in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Now he's taken his skills underground -- one half mile underground to be exact -- to capture images of the people and machinery of the mining industry.

It's no easy feat to create a virtual photo studio 3,000 feet under the ground. Kevin's two biggest challenges were working in such tight quarters and locating enough power to generate the light he needed without knocking out all the circuit breakers in the tunnel.

Typical of Kevin's ingenuity, he overcame the obstacles, made buddies and models out of men not accustomed to being in front of a camera and created memorable images for an industry that typically doesn't draw much attention from a creative photographer.

Kevin has plans to continue shooting in mines and on drilling rigs but he's also not giving up his love of shooting the sun, sky, forests and water of his native Canada.
