Quicktime support for PC users

You may have read about Apple ceasing support of Quicktime software for Windows users. PC users have also been encouraged to delete the Quicktime application from their computers for fear of potential security risks. We would also highly recommend PC users delete Quicktime as soon as possible.

Whilst our videos may state they are Quicktime files, they are actually H.264 encoded MPEG-4 files that should play perfectly fine within many other media players and pose zero security threat in themselves. VLC is a popular free media player that plays .mov files. http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html

DAMIEN LOVEGROVE

Damien Lovegrove is a world renowned portrait photographer and Fujifilm UK ambassador. He has been a TV cameraman, a commercial photographer, a wedding and portrait photographer and now he is a writer, columnist, teacher, motivator and artist.

He went to the BBC at the age of 19 and trained for three years to be a cameraman, going on to train as a Lighting Director, and leaving the BBC in 1998 to become a full time photographer.

He now specialises in making women look fabulous.

“I’m inspired by beauty and as I have matured as a photographer I’ve learned to see beauty in just about everyone and everywhere. It’s not what I look at that matters, it is what I see.”

“Being a good portrait photographer requires key traits like having integrity, fun, respectfulness and a personable character. It wasn’t until I was in my early 30s that I began to gain that all important confidence needed to hone these skills, and I shot my first portrait in 1996 at the age of 32.”

“Some of the leading photographers I met early in my career had confidence and craft skills in bucket loads, but somehow they lost the desire or focus to really push themselves to greatness, and they fell by the wayside. It takes continual practice and improvement to get the most from photography and there are many obstacles along the way to overcome.”

“The secret of making consistently good photographs is to stay inspired and be passionate about photography. Inspiration fuels the learning of new techniques, and passion generates the motivation needed to continually practice.”
