Do you want to understand your camera and take great photos today?

Yes Please


New year. New beginning. New you. Look ahead.

It’s a new year, full of endless possibilities and unknown obstacles.

For some, this means taking your photography to the next level. Whether it be launching your new business, putting your portfolio online for the first time or seeking the guidance you need to advance your skills.

For others, it may be the year that you vigorously pursue your passion in photography. No matter where you are in that aspect, this is the year of new beginnings. So out with the old and in with the new!

While the magic of a fresh year can carry your spirits high in daydreams, we all know the importance of planning out your goals. After all, “a goal without a timeline is just a dream”.

Make sure to visualize the goals and milestones you need to achieve throughout the year to reach your end goal!


“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” — Lao Tzu

The Challenge

This week’s challenge is all about looking ahead. While the end result will be unique and personal to each participant, we do have some thoughts to guide you on your submission.

We want to see what is in your mind’s eye for the year. How do you visualize your goals and dreams coming into existence? What is your vision for the year?

This vision probably already exists in your imagination and your photographs can reveal it. They can express something otherwise invisible. Go beyond sight and show us your insight.

There is no right or wrong way to interpret this challenge so, don’t get tangled up in the details.

The top 10 submissions will be carefully chosen by the ExpertPhotography team and then shared with a trusted group of photographers who will decide on the winner.

You only have 7 days to submit your entry, so get out there and start shooting!
