Happy Holidays from ATP!
Its that time of year again and I cannot believe it has come around so quickly. All Things Photography is nearly 5 years old and has had one of its best years in terms of readership growth…we now receive over 5,000 visitors a day which is fantastic considering we do no advertising whatsoever!
We hope to make 2010 even better by adding new sections including All Things Video where we hope to encourage you to make the most of the video functionality of your DSLR whether for business or pleasure.We also hope to add loads more articles, features and reviews and maybe even a few sponsored competitions.
2009 has been a very busy year for me and in particular, the preparation and participation of Enduro Africa 2009 where I spent 8 days astride a 230cc enduro motorbike whilst trying to navigate through some of the roughest terrain that the Wild Coast of South Africa has to offer. All in all we raised over £300,000 for some very worthwhile charities and everyone involved had a ball.
o thank you to everyone who sponsored me for this by either making generous donations or by buying our products at reduced costs with all the proceeds going towards the event!
Also, ATPMembers was finally ready and released at the start of this month and so far the feedback has been excellent. We still have the launch promotion going on for just a few more days (ending on December the 31st) where you can join for a massive 40% off.
I have on my desk, a brand new iPod Touch 8gb worth around $200 which one lucky full access member will win in our New Years Day prize draw (I have been seriously tempted to play with it but it is still sealed).
This is only open to full access members joining in December and the prize draw will be held live, online at ATPMembers.com at 2pm GMT on New Years Day.
So, if you haven’t already joined us, why not head on over to ATPMembers.com and see what is in store for you there including live chat, forums, galleries…
We also have all the Wedding Photography Blueprint DVD’s, eBook and interviews, an Absolute Beginners Course to ease you into the world of digital photography, a DSLR Training section and a huge Stock Photography Training section. All courses have a combined total of around 16 hours of video tutorials so get cracking in 2010 and finally learn how to put that DSLR to good use!
A new and extensive Business of Photography section is currently being written and we hope to have this online by the end of January. It will cover just about everything you need to know to start up a successful photography business in 2010.
Lastly, as we now host the Wedding Photography Blueprint online at ATP Members, we thought it only fair to reduce the price of the standalone DVD set from $214 to just $125, so if you just want the wedding photography training DVD’s, you can grab your copies now using the link above.
If you have previously bought the DVD’s from us, you should have received an email with a special offer whereby you can get free access to ATP Members and just pay the low monthly membership fee. If you didn’t receive that email but would like to join the club, please get in touch and I will send you the relevant link.
So all that leaves me to say is a huge thank you for your loyalty and support throughout 2009 and I hope you have a safe and fantastic Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year!
