Old Car City Workshop

Posted: December 3, 2017 in Uncategorized
Last year the country got to see the most unique auto graveyard in the world.  The New York Times did an article about Old Car City, and soon followed was CBS Sunday Morning News, Time Warner News, Yahoo News, and even a rumor of a reality show.  The attendance of photographers has exploded since all the news reports, which is good so that it keeps Old Car City in business.
CBS News video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l56yUuR48LI&feature=share
4,200 old cars, six miles of trails, through beautiful woodlands.  Hotel only 2 miles away.
50 miles north of Atlanta, Georgia, and two miles east of I-75.
Let me show you where all the best shots are, and how to get the most out of this magical place.
Old Car City Workshop

Think Tank Photo Airline Bag

Posted: November 30, 2017 in Uncategorized
Our friends at Think Tank Photo have just released an expanded version of one of their most popular rolling camera bags.  By complying with carry-on size requirements, with the new Airport Advantage Plus roller you can keep your most valuable gear safe and near you when you fly. Plus, the roller’s ultra-lightweight design at 6.9 lbs. (3.1 kg) helps meet weight restrictions, yet features the same level of protection for which Think Tank is known.  Its dedicated laptop pocket fits up to a 17” laptop in a padded sleeve, a 10” tablet, or an Eagle Creek Medium Clothing Folder for overnight trips.  By using my special link, you will receive free gear and free shipping not only when you order this new roller, but any Think Tank gear.
