    A website with free photo competitions

    Hey everyone, I signed up to Gurushots a while ago and I'm making my way up through the ranks (doing really well) but I'm stuck and I need to get a Gurupick to go to the next level (a Gurupick is when one of the guys who runs the website picks your photo as a favorite out of each challenge)...

    Clickasnap - Getting paid per view?

    Hey all, I was wondering if anyone had heard of or tried Clickasnap? It's something I stumbled upon the other day and I'm pretty skeptical about it.

    Cannock Chase Deer

    A couple of weeks ago we got up ridiculously early to drive to Cannock Chase in the hopes of seeing some deer. We weren't disappointed! Just near a place called Freda's Grace, a dalmatian that was an army mascot, we walked around and eventually found this beautiful herd of deer! Cannock...

    Four Shires Bloodhound Hunt - Staffordshire

    Another fantastic day chasing the hunt across the Staffordshire Moorlands! Bloodhound hunting does not involve hunting animals. Bloodhounds hunt a human scent, they send a runner out about an hour before and the bloodhounds chase his scent. Keeps tradition going, no animals hurt in the...
