So it is 2017 and I am super excited for the coming year. The reason is that I am taking 2017 very seriously and I am going to drive this blog and my school into new heights this new year. So what does that mean for you, my loyal reader? Well, that means that you get to learn a whole lot of new skills from me. I have been collecting a ton of material to help you be the best in 2017 and this blog is going to be the dispensary for that knowledge, skill, and training.
I know what you are thinking “Jason, has this not been done like 2,000,000 times over by more well-known photographers?” To that I say, “you are right, but so what?” I am not being cocky, but I just have to state that the style of blog where I write about the musings of an aging expat photographer/English teacher is not the most original either. Thus, I want to push and challenge myself. I really want to put my 13 years of teaching and my Masters of Education to good use.
With that being said, here are the changes that you are going to see in the year 2017:
More Learning-Focused Articles
Last year I lead a number of workshops and helped a few photographers improve their skills. It felt great to help photographers along on their journey through photography. While it is great writing about places that I’ve been, I felt that it would serve you, my precious readers more if I focussed each post about learning how to improve your technique and learning a new skill along the way.
In the upcoming articles, I am going to be taking you through some of the steps that I take to get the photos that have appeared on the pages of magazines and even National Geographic. I will show you the steps and techniques that will get you the shots that you want. This will also push me as a teacher and as a photographer as well. It will be a divergence from what I have done for years on this blog but I think that it will be a better move for the future.
I think that within the last week I wrote more articles on this blog than I did in the last 6 months. The truth was that I was spread way too thin. With a lot of work cleared off my plate for 2017 I am back in the game and going to head out strong. Thus, you are going to see a lot more content being sent out this year. This content as mentioned before will be more focussed and directed at improving your photography.
More Courses at Learn.JasonTeale.com
Last year I launched my own school for photography with a great course on creating cinemagraphs. I really enjoyed creating the course but had little time to add to the school since then. In this coming year I am going to add a great number of courses design to give you hours of training to help you master lightroom, photoshop, and much more. These courses will be high quality and offer downloads and discounts for you as well. If you are a beginner or a so-called expert, there will be something there for everyone.
So that is my plan for 2017. Let me know what you think of the changes and what you want to see content-wise. Ideally, this blog is going to be more focussed on you, the readers more than anything else. I want to create content that you resonate with and that works for you. Thus, I am hoping to have more interaction with you all this your. Also if you haven’t already, sign up for my email list and I will notify you when the new courses and content goes live.
Happy New Year Everyone!
