Waiting For Nikon... sponsor my street photography competition.

Or not. We'll see. As I mentioned last post, I went to a demonstration of the Nikon D800, D800E and D4 in Paris last weekend.

As I already know that I want the D800 asap I didn't bother spending much time holding and hugging the things, or borrowing any of the awesome equipment on display, including lenses that would make even the guy in the video below jealous!

Funny how this video is my fourth most popular ever, after some hardcore photography tips ones. It wouldn't possibly be because it's subtitled 'Small Penis Guy', now would it?

So anyway, I managed to eventually chat to a very nice chap from Nikon at the event about sponsoring my latest initiative: the "Paris If You Please" International Paris Street Photography Competition.

Oh yes, folks, I don't do things by half. I've already got some great Paris blogs and bloggers on board and now I'm after the big prize: a bit of friendly sponsoring from Nikon themselves in the form of a camera as a prize every month.

Big lens = Small p....???

Am I asking or hoping for too much? I don't see why. I won't go on about this too much, because the competition's only really of interest to two or three types of people: those who have taken street shots of Paris and can enter; those who want to see some cool shots of Paris; those who are interested in the feedback videos I do on the winners each month, which I'll link to in due course.

So that's the story. And the question is: can some wayward street photo dude from Paris get mega-manufacturer Nikon interested in his idea. Are they up for it. Can the feel the vibe..? I'll keep you posted! Click here to check out the competition details if you're interested.
