Moving Audio

The past few weeks have seen large changes take place with regard to the Richard Flint Photography podcast. After ten years at the same podcast hosting company, a decision was made to move to anchor.fm which is part of Spotify.

The new host provides better distribution options including making the podcast newly available on Spotify as well as mobile tools for recording while out and about. The process of running and maintaining the podcast has been made much easier.

Avaailable on Spotify

The transition over to new hosting took place a couple of weeks ago with the minimum amount of disruption to subscribers. However, the raw RSS feed on the previous host Jellycast.com has now been shut down and will no longer deliver new episodes of the podcast. The recommended podcast feed to receive new episodes of the podcast can be found at https://feeds.feedburner.com/TheRichardFlintPhotographyPodcast.

More options to subscribe to the podcast can be found on the podcast page at https://www.richardflintphoto.com/podcast/

Family History Archive Website

By |2020-08-09T12:04:39+01:00August 9th, 2020|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , , , |

Family history research has become very popular in recent years, encouraged by a wide variety of ancestry research websites available online and TV shows such as the BBC’s popular series Who Do You Think You Are?

Recently I was asked to build a website that could serve as an extensive online family history archive for the Dudziński family. The completed website launched recently and contains detailed family histories, documents archive, photographs and even a collection of favourite family recipes. Sensitive information such as contact details, birthdays etc has been hidden behind secure password protection on specific pages. A PDF viewer has been used to provide an easy way to view the family tree document with an option to download the file if required.

The Dudziński Family Website can be found at https://www.dudzinskifamily.org/

Goodbye Facebook

By |2019-10-15T16:03:54+01:00October 15th, 2019|Categories: News|Tags: , , , |

This has been coming for quite a while but finally, after a number of years of putting it off, I’ve decided to delete my Facebook pages. Both my personal page and the Richard Flint Photography page are going through the drawn-out process of being wiped. Facebook makes it easy to join but a lot less easier to say goodbye.

Although I joined the social network quite a few years ago now, I very rarely updated or even logged into the increasingly bloated social network site. For some reason, I never did like the social network in the same way as Twitter or Instagram. The argument that it is great staying in contact with friends no longer really applies as many of my core friends also have Instagram accounts. So it was time to pull the plug.

From a business point of view, Facebook rarely delivered anything of value. For years I was stuck with the same number of followers with little chance of increasing that number unless I paid Facebook to boost my profile. The page was stagnant. Again it was time to say goodbye.

The last couple of years have seen me rethink what websites and social media sites I use. The current core sites of Twitter and Instagram remain safe. The deletion of Facebook is a big change but a welcome one. Maybe it’s something I should have done much earlier.

Redbubble Store Revamp

Redbubble logo

Over the summer a number of improvements have been made to this website and others including a long-overdue revamp of the Redbubble store.

The Richard Flint Photography Redbubble Store

Launched in June 2008, the Redbubble store has delivered prints and other items to customers around the world. Speedway photo T-shirts to Australia and iPhone cases and prints of Glencoe to the USA – just to mention just a couple of recent orders. Over the years the store has expanded further as new images and new products have become available. It was time for an update.

Framed Prints and much More

The Redbubble store needed some love. Especially critical was the photography available there needed to be categorized better. Most important was the range of items available really needed to be updated across the portfolios. Initially just framed prints and other wall art had been available. That has now all changed to include more clothing, mugs, iPhone and iPad covers, notepads and bags – to mention just a few products. In most cases over 60 products are now available to buy.

More Photos and Portfolios

The most noticeable change regards the portfolios. More categories have been added to aid those looking for images of a specific subject matter. Animals, lighthouses, coast, whisky, street photography and more have been added with more to come. The Scotland images have also been broken down into regional portfolios that currently include Islay, Jura, Edinburgh, Borders and Skye. It makes finding a favourite image so much easier.
