Today is the last day of the year. Plus, the whole decade is coming to its end, so there’s so much to recap! We’ve all made many mistakes (and hopefully learned from them), and we’ve made a lot of good and bad decisions. A year’s end is always a good time for setting goals and guidelines that will help us grow and become better in the year ahead of us. And I’d like to share my thoughts and inspire you to set realistic goals without putting too much pressure on yourself.
I don’t know if you make New Year’s resolutions or not, but I think it’s always good to make a resolution to improve your photography over the next year. Landscape photographer Nigel Danson gives you seven simple ideas that will help you kick-start 2019 and stay inspired and motivated for creating.
Are you a portrait photographer in search of a 2019 New Year’s resolution?
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been really stressed over the prospect of another year of not reaching my photography goals.

For the first time in my life, I was able to check out this world-famous event with my own eyes with FlyNYON!
As we’re recapping on 2017, we can see what we’ve done right, how much we’ve learned, and also take a look at our mistakes. All of these considerations will help us to make plans and decision for the year ahead to help us improve and keep focused on our goals.
Every year around this time, I make a couple of choices about the upcoming year. This time, I’ve decided to focus on photography and make some decisions regarding my work. In this article, you won’t only read about the decisions I’ve made. I’ll also suggest a few more you can make for yourself to make 2018 better and more creative than 2017.
It’s that time of the year again – New Year’s resolutions!
In this article I am going to take a look back at the photography business goals I set for myself last year, and re-calibrate my resolutions for 2018.
Everyone has different goals and business targets so I hope you’ll leave a comment and share yours too!
There’s nothing like the new year to start things off on the right foot. Unlike making a New Year’s resolution to go to the gym or give up gluten, this year I’ve prioritized the top three photography business tasks that I want to get done the first month of 2017.[Read More…]
