Lenscraft Photography Blog & News

The Lenscraft Photography News blog is where I share all things photography with readers. It could be an interesting piece of news from the photographic industry or something more personal to Lenscraft. Either way, it will make interesting reading if you’re passionate about photography.

What makes this photography blog different to many others is that I also share my personal view. This isn’t a blog that simply reproduces that same material you will find repeated across popular websites. I try things and tell you what I think works and doesn’t work.

I will be posting new material each week although sometimes it may be more or less frequent than this. The life of a Landscape Photographer can be very demanding at times, so you may need to give me a little leeway at times.

I hope you enjoy the photography news items and blog posts.
