01 | THE KENTUCKY DERBY

As I’ve said so many times in the past, the real fun of this industry is in the friendships that come out of everyone’s love for the craft. Meet a new pal, Skip Dickstein. As an award-winning photojournalist, his work has been published all over the world. Through a few phone calls and sharing a mutual good friend, wedding photographer Joe Elario, I was introduced to Skip’s work.

This past Saturday, at Churchill Downs, he photographed the Kentucky Derby with the help of my NEW Platypod eXtreme. Sent to Skip to “test drive” for the race, I was able to get it to him in time.

02 | PLATYBALL 10% off AND eXtreme for Pre-order

The long anticipated Platyball finally hit our shelves for purchase on May 11th. That’s right, we will have a full inventory in stock and available for purchase! For a very limited time Dr. T will be offering 10% off the Platyball while supplies last. Use code SAPB10 at checkout to get 10% off your Platyball purchase.

Platypod previously turned the photography game upside down in early 2020 with the release of their revolutionary new ball head, the Platyball. The inception of the pandemic quickly created several previously unanticipated road bumps in the form of production, shipping and other delays. Fast forward to 2022 and Platypod has turned up the photography game yet again by releasing the Platypod eXtreme. The eXtreme is currently available on our website to pre-order. Shipments of the Platypod eXtreme have already been underway so don’t miss your opportunity to be one of the first artists in the industry to try this innovative new tripod!
