Oxbow Photo is proud to announce one of our photos (B.Vogt: Brown Pelican) was selected for the National Audubon Society, San Francisco Bay Chapter’s Annual Calendar.
If you are a lover of the outdoors and nature, consider supporting your local Audubon Society chapter or the National Audubon Society through donations, become a member, or purchase this calendar. A recent study has shown bird populations in North America have plummeted to all-time recorded lows, and are in desperate need of our help. All proceeds from the calendar support Golden Gate Audubon Society’s programs. The Audubon Society works to protect, restore, and enhance habitat for the benefit of both birds, but also for other wildlife and humanity. Audubon provides funding and manages programs for scientific research, advocacy, and on-the-ground conservation actions.
Finding a perfect camera bag sometimes seems like an exercise in futility. I’ve owned and also tried out tons of bags over the years, and very few seem to check all the boxes. For hiking and photography, I’ve always been on the lookout for a bag that strikes the balance between durability, weight, and functionality. As a traveling photographer, I’m often going to wet, humid, sandy, snowy or dusty environments where having a durable bag is a great asset to protect sensitive electronics and keep stuff dry.
In the past year, the world has witnessed a steady stream of full-frame mirrorless camera releases. We’ve got a full suite of Sony Alpha full-frame mirrorless cameras (with more, including the A7R IV on the way), and newcomers including the Nikon Z, Canon R, and Panasonic S series. I can imagine someone interested in purchasing a serious camera for the first time would naturally gravitate towards these full frame models, if for no other reason than these cameras are getting the lions share of marketing attention. A bigger sensor must be better, right?
