Merry Christmas from dPS: And We’re Moving into Holiday Mode

dPS headquarters are in Melbourne Australia where the clock has just ticked over past midnight and Santa is busily at work stuffing stockings with all kinds of great photographic gear!

While I know not all of our readers stop for Christmas I wanted to pause today to send you my best wishes for this season. I value each and every one of you and send you my wishes for peace, joy and rejuvenation as we head towards the end of the year.

I also hope that you find the time over this period to grab that camera and use it to both capture the celebrations you attend but also to just be creative.

dPS Holiday Mode

I also wanted to let you know that over the next couple of weeks dPS will be moving into ‘Holiday Mode’. 2010 has been a truly massive year for dPS and 2011 is shaping up to be bigger. So to get ready – I (and our team of writers) need a little time off with the family to get refreshed.

So over the next couple of weeks we’ll be scaling back the posting level – instead of our normal two posts per day there will be one each weekday. Some of the posts will be new and we’ll also be throwing in a few of our favourites from the archives for those who’ve missed them.

Things will return to normal on Sunday 9th January.

Once again – thanks to our readers for a wonderful year and have a great holiday period!

    This is the end of my first year with DPS and I wanted to thank you for making it a great photography learning experience. I’ve learned so much and it is showing. My friends and family have noticed the difference. Now I’m not just snapping pictures anymore, but making creative and popping photographs! Thanks Darren and the rest of the DPS crew!

    Happy Holidays to you and your”s Darren and crew!

    We are in for a big snow fall here in Jersey today. It makes Christmas complete in my eyes. We fed the birds this morning and I took this shot out the closed kitchen window. The little guy had snow on his beak rooting for the seeds.
