Manfrotto Distribution & Kata Partner with Wounded Nature to Support Veteran-Focused Initiative

Photography Industry Leader Promises $5 donation to Charity for all Purchases & Registrations

Ramsey, N.J. (October 27, 2011) — Manfrotto Distribution and Manfrotto Bags have partnered with the charity, Wounded Nature – Working Veterans, for a special promotion in which Manfrotto Distribution will donate $5 to Wounded Nature for each Kata product purchased and registered at www.katahaveaheart.com. A non-profit entity known for cleaning up rural beaches and estuaries on the East Coast, Wounded Nature employs wounded veterans and assists them in obtaining their first post-service civilian job. The goal for this project is to reach $20,000 in total donations by February 2012.

Rudy Socha, CEO of Wounded Nature, states, "This is a perfect fit for both of our companies. Our work cleaning beaches and protecting wildlife will benefit wildlife photographers. The public relations work our veteran's perform to educate the public about reducing litter everywhere will improve photo shots for all photographers."

Curious Critters by Sigma Pro David FitzSimmons is a Photographic Delight


Sigma Pro photographer David FitzSimmons has recently published a photographic wonder aimed at children ages 4-8. Curious Critters features stunning animal photography with humorous prose, as well as useful facts about the various critters featured in it's pages.

Shot entirely with Sigma lenses, the images on these pages will interest and delight both children and adults with their brilliance and beauty. On the website dedicated to the book (www.curious-critters.com) David provides information on the equipment used for each shot and a general discussion of lighting and staging techniques used throughout the book.

The photography isn't the only great part of this book. The witty prose, spoken from the viewpoint of the featured critter, will entertain all ages. The material in the back of the book contains a brief natural history for each featured animal, a life-sized silhouette challenge game with answers, and a glossary.
