A colleague of mine has recently taken the rather bold step of giving up full-time employment and has set up a photographic studio in Milton Keynes. The business is called Plunge Studios and although they specialise in automotive photography they will take on other work including portraits, landscapes, product shots, architecture and industrial.
From their website:
“Plunge specialises in creative automotive photography by Marc Little. This is a wide subject including cars, motorcycles, trucks, buses, mountain bikes, skateboards basically anything with wheels. We deliver high quality images which aim to capture the essence of your pride and joy. Plunge Studios is based in Old Wolverton Milton Keynes but Marc will travel to various locations to achieve the right environment for your type of vehicle.”

I just had this land in my inbox:
An Open Letter from Blurb’s CEO
Hello Customers, Partners, and Friends,
This is only the second time I have written one of these open letters, so I guess it takes something special to get me to put pen to paper, or in this case, fingers to keyboard.
Recently, I was rummaging around on my hard drive for the very first slide deck we created to pitch the Blurb idea to the venture capital community. The file was dated September 2004, which means that fully seven years ago we were either prescient, or we seriously lack imagination — either way, we have come to this vision, now.
Recently I stumbled across a new bi-monthly PDF based publication called Adore Noir. It is a black and white fine art photography magazine and the 4th issue has just been release. Content is predominantly a portfolio of high quality images accompanied by an interview with the photographer. The images look great on my iPad.
“A fine art black and white photography magazine featuring the works of emerging and noted photographers from around the world.”
A really inspiring publication and a must have for anyone who enjoys monochrome photography whether you are a photographer or not. At just £1.90 per issue (at the current exchange rate) it is great value. I have all 4 issues and look forward to the next. Highly recommended.
