I strongly believe that practice makes perfect and photography is no exception; the more you pick up your iphone or camera, the better you'll get. It's why I lovingly designed a FREE 10 day instagram photography challenge where you can share your images with like-minded creatives who are there to provide you with inspiration and encouragement.
You will receive 10 unique photography themes/challenges throughout the month of July directly into your e-mail inbox.
Each e-mail will contain the title of your challenge, photography/instagram tips, visual mood boards and inspiration sources to really spark your imagination.
You will have a minimum of 48 hours to interpret the given photography theme. This should allow you enough time to experiment and have a play before taking your final shot.
I'll always ask for you to showcase your work on your instagram gallery every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
The first image will go live on Tuesday, July 4th and the last image should hit your instagram grid Tuesday, July 26th
REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED! Please scroll down to join the next challenge.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Anyone, anywhere! It doesn't matter if you've never used a camera before or if you are a professional. The photography challenge is all about pushing your own individual boundaries, playfully experimenting and being as artistic and creative as you want to be.

NOW THE BEST BITS.....(SEE BELOW)
At the end of each week I'll choose my favourite image, I'll mention the photographer of said image in one of my captions on instagram (think shout-out) AND make that person my #instacrushoftheday on instagram stories. It's my way of saying thank you.
FAQ ABOUT THE INSTAGRAM PHOTOGRAPHY CHALLENGE
Is this challenge for food photographers only?
No! Anyone with an interest in photography can take part. Challenges will be set in such a way that you'll have lots of artistic freedom to interpret them in whichever way you like.
Do I need a DSLR to participate?
No, you can use a regular camera, an iphone camera or anything else you've got to hand.
What if I miss one challenge because I'm busy/travelling/sick? Will I be disqualified?
No, of course not. There's no pressure to 'perform'. It's all about having fun and thinking outside the box. However, if at all possible I'd really recommend you try your hand at every challenge to reap the benefits of regularly taking pictures and honing your craft.
Will you comment and like every single one of my pictures?
I promise I'll look at all the images submitted and heart the ones that make me smile, but I may not have the time to comment on every entry. However, if you'd like some personal feedback I'd urge you to consider the UPGRADE package mentioned above.
Can I see how everyone else has interpreted the challenge?
Yes you can and I strongly urge you to. I feel it's an important part of the learning process. Allow your fellow creatives to inspire you. And if an image moves you, show your appreciation, leave a comment and let this creative community flourish :).
I missed the registration for this challenge. Will you host another one?
YES! I will! If you'd like to participate then please add your e-mail to the mailing list below.
I'm not on instagram, can I still participate?
No, I'm sorry. This online photography challenge is instagram based.
Any more questions?
Just leave a question in the comment section and I'll answer it as best I can.
