Article on DPreview.com about Photo-related Kickstarter Projects
Check out these cool projects that are photography-related! These entrepreneurs and inventors are pushing photography and videography forward. Never have so many tools been so accessible to so many people.
This article lists just a few of the exciting new projects looking for funding using Kickstarter.com. (More about Kickstarter in a future post.)
Note: The photos are in chronological order. They are mostly landscape photos of the journey as I reverted back to the type of photography I most enjoy. I’ll shortly have a video together which delves a bit deeper into the personal aspects of the trip. All were shot with the incredible Sony RX100 vii camera. Also, you can view the photos separately in a larger slideshow/filmstrip by clicking on a photo and scrolling forward.
So, I’ve become very good at failing. Over the past four years I have attempted to break the Long Trail Unsupported FKT (Fastest Known Time) three times.

This year in particular, I really felt that I was dialed in but for various reasons, my attempt in late June was over almost before it started due to sleep issues.
I had also originally scheduled to crew my buddy at Tor des Geants, a massive 210 mile race through the Italian alps in early September, but due to changes in plans, that a…

True's Ledges was conserved by the Upper Valley Land Trust and is managed by the city of Lebanon, NH. A nice little map and information can be found here. The views are cool, the pools are deep and the falls are beautiful.
