The Covid19 pandemic is causing major disruptions all over the world. Our own contributing photographers have had to cancel workshops, resulting in the loss of a significant portion of their income. Many of our students and subscribers tell us they have cancelled plans to attend photography workshops and events, and are staying in their homes. All over the world, you are upending your lives to aid in the effort to slow the spread of the virus, protect the most vulnerable among us, and ease the pressure on health care workers.
Many of you may be frustrated to be stuck at home, unable to take planned trips or gather with your local photography groups. We hope that you will use this time to support our contributors, who have worked so hard to share their knowledge and experience. By purchasing one of their eBooks or Video Tutorials, or subscribing to the Visual Wilderness Streaming Service, you are supporting amazing artists and dedicated instructors… AND you get to build your own photography skills at the same time.
You might not be able to travel right now – but there’s still lots you can learn! You can start by checking out brand new articles on our free Visual Wilderness blog. To get your creative juices flowing, here are some practical and free things you can do to improve your photography at home:
