In April, Nikon is opening a school in London to encourage people to embrace the wonderful world of photography. Ok it's not free, but if you want some top quality hands on training, you could do a lot worse than go to the source - so to speak - and learn from Nikon!
The school is based at Nikon's centre of Excellence near Oxford Circus, in London. Typically course fees are £119+, although they are currently running a £20 discount if you book before May 1st 2013.
Digital Rev do a series of videos called the "Pro Photographer, Cheap Camera challenge" where they get a well known photographer to try his or her skills using a camera that is beyond it's prime.
In their recent video they ask Vincent Laforet, the pulitzer prize winning photo journalist to give it a go, giving up his Canon 1DX and instead using a Canon A2E film camera. His resulting photos are great.
Now this is painful. On Ebay, there's a Canon 600mm super telephoto lens with a Canon 1D Mark 3 attached going for sale at a rock bottom price. Why so cheap, sadly it's all rather badly damaged by salt water.
