Online photography learning at FotoBuzz
Fancy joining a real community of like-minded photographers who want to learn, have fun, share experiences and just get more from their photography, all in a totally safe environment? Who wouldn't but does such a place exist?
I'm pleased to tell you it does because I created it, along with my friend wildlife and aviation photographer Andy Rouse and the shadowy figure of a genius web builder who lives in a cave in deepest Wales. We'll just call him, The Geek.
This Shangri-La of online photographic goodness is called FotoBuzz and you can find it at: www.foto-buzz.com
The world of FotoBuzz is locked behind closed doors. That's not because you aren't allowed in but because we want our members to feel safe from the uncontrolled chaos of the world wide web.
At FotoBuzz you have to use your real name and a real photo of yourself so everyone knows who they are talking to and sharing hints and tips with. There is no hiding behind non de plumes or weird avatars.
We have members from the UK, Italy, France, Australia, New Zealand and the USA from all walks of life. It doesn't matter whether you are a beginner or more advanced because everyone shares a passion for photography and a willingness to help each other improve.
