Cloud Spot was created by full-time photographers who were tired of the available options for photo delivery. Nothing before truly placed the photographer's brand first and cut precious time off of their workflow. The goal was to beautifully display images in a branded and modern gallery, be super fast and easy for the photographer to share, and allow clients to easily download images sent directly in an email and/or in the galleries. After using Cloud Spot for the past few months, I can say that they've succeeded.

Pentax 645z Medium Format Digital Camera Review

We just spent a week shooting the new Pentax 645z, the new, somewhat-affordable medium format system.

It was put through its paces at full wedding, a weeks worth of portrait sessions and a night shoot.
