A photography website run by Tobias Gelston, photographer and educator, which provides advice and recommendations on equipment as well as techniques via a series of tutorials and travel Vlogs covering a wide range of subject matter. It also offers a package of Lightroom tutorials (which I can vouch for are excellent!).  Toby has recently joined forces with three other professional photographers to form the Photo Enthusiast Network (below).

 

The Photo Enthusiast Network is a fantastic resource centre and has a thriving community. It is jointly managed by four professional photographers with a wealth of experience and proven track records. Here you can find online tutorials for Photography, Lightroom, Photoshop as well as personal image critiques and monthly competitions. In addition, they offer the chance to join them on professionally run expeditions around the world.

 

 

 

 

Whether you're just beginning as a photographer or you have some experience, this book by David McKay is a 'must have'. It is written from the heart and by someone who is an educator and experienced professional. This first, in a series of books, is available to download (Kindle) or order as a hard back. It covers preparation, equipment, exploring light and creative ideas. Such a great and invaluable read!

 

 

 

Below is a link to a Youtube video by Roman Kurywczac who is a widely travelled, professional bird photographer. Although in this video he 'promotes' the Sigma 150-600mm lens, the majority of his information, advice, hints and tips about bird photography are applicable whichever camera/telephoto lens you might have.
