World Photo Day for Individuals

Celebrating World Photo Day doesn't have to be a big affair. Each year, many photographers choose to take time out to reflect on what they love about photography. Some choose to stay in and learn new post techniques whist others adventure out to capture that elusive photograph. You can even celebrate photography on your morning walk as you ponder what the world would look like without photography.

    On World Photo Day I sat in my garden and pondered. I took photographs of my children with my new camera lens, I thought about taking them somewhere exciting and fun to try a photoshoot and I wondered whether to invite friends over to capture their fun as they played in the sunshine. And then I looked again at my garden. My lovely, blooming garden. And I realised you don’t actually have to travel far to find wonder and beauty and ‘exciting’.

    In honour of World Photo Day, I sat down to write a list of reasons to celebrate photography. How ironic that my top five list largely related to human connections and not to the landscapes I love to photograph. Without intending it that way, my list evolved to be entirely in keeping with the rationale behind World Photo Day – a celebration of the ability we have to communicate through this medium and to unite local and global communities with the power of photography.
