Happy New Year!

Mana Island, Fiji

We wanted to take a moment to thank you for staying with us as we grow as a community and venture together ever deeper into the Visual Wilderness.

2015 has been a year of change for Visual Wilderness. We expanded our video course offering to include in-depth, technical courses on Exposure and RAW Processing. Our blog, which was set into motion by Varina Patel (yep, the rumors are all true that Jay laughed at her when she decided to start it), has now expanded to include some of the most acclaimed landscape photographers in the world. On top of that, we launched the very first issue of our free InFocus Magazine Newsletter and started offering phenomenal discounts on educational materials by top landscape photographers through our InFocus Deals.

We look forward to seeing you again in 2016! We hope to bring you exciting stories, valuable tips through our blog, more focused video courses, and insightful interviews to help inspire and equip you to build your own stunning portfolio.

We wish you a beautiful new year filled with peace, prosperity and, of course, awesome photos!

About Author Jay Patel

I could startoff like this – “Seeds of Jay Patel’s appreciation for beautiful places were planted early in his childhood….” but it would get boring really fast. I will just sum it up and say that I am a Landscape and Wilderness Photographer who loves to capture dramatic light. My photographs have been published in various magazines, calendars and advertising materials throughout the world.
Patience is a virtue...unless you are chasing your dreams
