Online Photo Grabbers Watch Out!

Photo copyright boost set to open online ‘floodgates’

People who pluck photos from the internet without permission could face a barrage of lawsuits over coming months. 

Following a Government announcement of a ‘simpler and easier’ system, Intellectual Property disputes can now be resolved using the ‘small claims track’ in the Patents County Court (PCC).

IWDIG Calendar 2012: Sold Out!

We have just  released our first IWDIG calendar, containing 12 fresh scenes from the Isle of Wight and it sold out within one day!

The Calendar task was never intended to be a vanity publication and as the saying goes charity begins at home, we mutually agreed the IWDIG 2012 Calendar was sold to raise funds for Dimbola Lodge.

Keeping in focus, our next calendar for 2013 will be more than ready for the Christmas rush in 2012.  We will continue to showcase the rich and vibrant life we as photographers experience on the Isle of Wight.

Isle of Wight Calendar 2012

Having been set the task of capturing and producing our first Isle of Wight Digital Imaging Group calendar, we are happy to report we’ve exceeded the halfway mark.

Focusing our attention in October 2010 we decided a great project would be to produce our very first IWDIG Calendar.  To launch a calendar for 2012 involves Olympic style planning and we remain focused on capturing 12 fresh scenes from the Isle of Wight each month representative of Jan, Feb etc.

The Calendar task was never intended to be a vanity publication and as the saying goes charity begins at home, last week we mutually agreed the IWDIG 2012 Calendar will be sold to raise funds for Dimbola Lodge. Continue reading
