International Sporting Clays.com is produced with an international outlook. I present original content for both the obsessively serious and the not so serious sporting clay enthusiast. You will find it a worldwide source of information on sporting clay tournaments, news, advanced shooting technique, interviews with sporting personalities, equipment reviews and fantastic photography and visuals. Some segments will be produced as audio and video pod-casts creating a media rich site.
I bring a wealth of high level professional media production experience and knowledge to the site. I believe the blog platform is able to service a need not currently met in sporting media. Being a web based publication International Sporting Clays is able to offer exclusive content with virtually instant publishing as well as being a rich media platform capable of including the written word, pictures, audio and video. Even live broadcasting is possible.

I do not do paid reviews, however, from time to time I may recommend a product or service that is provided by companies who pay to advertise on this site.

I will always make this clear and you can see a current list of my Sponsors and Affiliates at the Sponsor Links page. I will only ever recommend something if I believe it to be good. Generally if I receive goods from companies for review, if possible, I will either send them back or give them away to readers.
