5 Milestones for dPS This Week!

This week has been an exciting week around dPS headquarters as we’ve celebrated a number of milestones – all of which are thanks to you our amazing community of readers!

Let me share a few of them with you!

1. 750,000 Newsletter Subscribers!


On Monday we noticed that our newsletter passed the magical 750,000 subscriber mark! Back in 2006 when I started the dPS newsletter so that a family member could get our latest tutorials (because he didn’t know how to subscribe to our RSS feed or wasn’t on Twitter) I had no idea how important our newsletter would be to three quarters of a million people!

Our weekly newsletter is the #1 way that people get updated on our latest free tutorials and if I ever happen to be late in sending one – boy do we hear about it from our subscribers – it is much anticipated each week!

If you’re not a subscriber yet – just add your email address below and we’ll send it out to you each Thursday!

We can’t wait to hit the million subscriber mark – we’ll have to think of a way to celebrate that one!

2. 18,000 Pinterest Followers!


On Tuesday we our Pinterest account had it’s 18,000th follower. While there are plenty of bigger accounts around we’re really proud of what we’ve built on Pinterest.

Jade – our Pinterest Guru – has set up 170 different ‘boards’ – each one dedicated to a different category of photography and each day she hunts for and shares some great photographic content from around the web.

So far she’s shared over 7000 great tutorials! Just be warned – if you follow us on Pinterest you may never get any work done again – it’s an amazing resource!

3. 170,000 Facebook Followers


On Wednesday we celebrated our 170,000th Facebook follower!

Our Facebook page is a great place to get the latest updates from our blog as well as connect with other readers.

PS: you can also follow us on Twitter. We’re approaching the 100,000 milestone there!

4. New dPS Redesign Preview

On Thursday we got a preview of the new dPS redesign that our design and development team have been working on. We’re still a few weeks away from launching it fully but we are REALLY excited by how it is shaping up.

The new design will be great for viewing on your mobile phone (a much requested feature, has an improved comments section, some new gallery features and is a lot more colourful to look at. We think you’ll like it.

We can’t show the full thing but here’s just a teasing glimpse of what’s to come! It’s taken from our new front page.


5. More Great Reviews of our Landscapes eBook

Landscapes cover 1

It’s been 9 days since we launched Living Landscapes and we’ve been overwhelmed by the amazing feedback we’ve been getting about it.

Here’s another comment left on the blog yesterday from one of our readers – Robin Grant:

I bought this eBook last week.

It was the first eBook I’ve ever bought and I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed reading it on my iPad. Todds photos are amazing (I am seriously thinking about booking a trip to New Zealand) and he writes really clearly.

I’ve already taken my camera out of town to experiment with some shots and can see my photos are improving already. Thanks for writing this dPS.

Save 33% on Living Landscapes and go into the draw to win a great $1500 photographic prize (lenses and bag) when you pick up a copy of Living Landscapes today.

Thanks to our Readers

None of the above would have been possible without our amazing readership. Thanks so much for being a part of what we do and for sharing us with your friends.
