Nikwax Blog & Newsletter Feature – Part 1

I’ve been aware of Nikwax and their products for many years. Back in my school and college days, I had a Saturday job in a local ski/outdoors shop (no surprises there, then!), where I used to sell the stuff.

How To Select A Set Of Sticks

  Tripods can often be a much-overlooked item in the photographer’s arsenal. So simple in design – essentially, they comprise just three adjustable legs and a method of attaching a camera to the top of a centre column – yet there are many times when using one can mean the difference between securing a great shot and missing a […]
