Privacy & advertising policies

Sponsored posts

I do no sponsored posts and take no advertising payments. I pay full price for all my kit. Anything that I review that I have not paid for will be clearly labelled, and will be returned to the manufacturer after the review.


The only affliate links I use are those to Amazon which link to my own books, and certain recommended camera kit. The pages that contain affiliate links are clearly labelled at the top of the page. You do not need to use my links. To circumvent the affilate links, just search directly in Amazon for the relevant product.


If you've registered for my online course, A Year With My Camera, or any other email series that I offer from time to time (like Make 30 Photos), your email address is stored with one or both of my email distribution providers, MailChimp and ActiveCampaign. I will not sell your email address, and I will only send you the emails you have signed up for. My email distribution providers may transfer your personal data to their sub-processors who perform some critical services, such as helping MailChimp and ActiveCampaign prevent abuse and providing support to their customers. I periodically advertise my courses on Facebook, and I may use your email address with Facebook so that I can show you the most up to date courses I am offering, and special offers and discounts only available to my followers. By signing up to my emails you give me permission to use your email address with Facebook. Please contact me ( to opt out.
