The podcast and blog are fundamentally free, and I intend to keep it that way, but there are costs for service providers, streaming file servers and site maintenance, not to mention the thousands of hours that go into creating a podcast and blog post almost every week since September 2005.
Keeping it Real!
I value the trust that you put in me by lending me your ears and eyes each week, and I want you to know that for every sponsor we take on board, we turn down four or five others. I never want to recommend a product or service that I would not or do not use myself. Many podcasters take any and all sponsorship that they can get, and it’s tempting, believe me, because the money really helps! But it just doesn’t feel right to me, so you’ll only ever hear about products I believe in on this podcast.
The Choice is Yours
Of course, you are totally welcome to listen and read as much as you want, without paying a dime. That’s what it’s here for, and I really do appreciate the fact that you find my content interesting and useful enough to give up your own time to consume it.
I you do feel compelled to help us out though, I’ve set up variable amount single payment and monthly payment option, that you can find over in the sidebar. Just click one of the options to the right, then type in an amount, and pay with a PayPal account or Credit Card for single payments. Monthly payments require a PayPal account, which you can set up during checkout.
Whatever amount you decide to pay, please know that it is very much appreciated.
P.S. You can see a list of people that have already helped out on our Thank You page.
Photographer’s Friend for iOS
A Depth of Field calculator and a Neutral Density calculator in one app for the introductory price of just $2.99!
Photographer’s Friend was born of Martin’s desire to quickly find Depth of Field ranges and Hyperfocal Distance in the field, and at the same time, calculate multi-filter Neutral Density shutter speeds without changing apps. If you don’t have a timer in your camera or cable release, the ND calculator has one built in, and alerts can be enabled to display even after you’ve close the app!
There is detailed help and links to relevant information right there in the app, and Photographer’s Friend runs on any sized screen iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and works perfectly in the iPad Split Screen mode, making it an invaluable tool for studying or writing about photography on your iPad. It truly is a Photographer’s Friend!
