In this week’s episode, I talk about something that is very excited to share with you: our brand new online photography community! This community is a place for our members to make new friends, join contests, receive feedback from professionals, and much more.

A few topics discussed in this episode:

  • Our new photography community at

  • How to make the most of your experience as a member

& much more!

Our community is open to everyone. Join us for a chance to win prizes and take your photographs to the next level!

Here is a preview of this week’s episode.

Introduce yourself in our sub-forum for new members. This is a great place to meet new people and learn about different cultures.

Make New Friends

We want you to make new friends and network in our community. If you’re a professional, you might benefit from connecting with photographers who own businesses. These valuable international connections could lead to amazing collaborations!

Photography doesn’t have to be an isolated activity. Our members understand what it’s like to feel lonely and uninspired. In our community, you’ll be able to connect with a wide variety of people from across the globe. This is an amazing opportunity for you to broaden your horizons and learn new things.

One of the best ways to make new friends is to introduce yourself. Start conversations and ask for help. A simple question can make a big difference. A small piece of advice can lead to a lifelong friendship. If you don’t take your online friendships for granted, you’ll reach new heights!

Ask for Constructive Criticism

We offer professional constructive criticism in our community. You’ll receive feedback in the form of text and videos. Make sure to read the Constructive Criticism Guidelines in our dedicated sub-forum to make the most of your experience.

Constructive criticism is invaluable to a photographer who’s willing to learn and improve. An experienced photographer’s perspective can help you look at your work from a brand new angle. This could lead to improved photoshoots and stronger skills.

To ask for feedback, visit our Constructive Criticism sub-forum, click on New Discussion, and upload your photos. Let the members know what you’re struggling with or simply ask for general feedback. If you have time, share your insights with other photographers. The more you give, the more you’ll receive!

Join Photography Contests

We’re proud of our contests at Every two weeks, we announce a new contest, which has a specific theme. We want to inspire you to try new things and leave your comfort zone. You’ll be surprised by your imagination and skills when you push your limits!

The prize of each contest is 50 USD and a feature in the community’s cover photo. This is a fantastic way to get exposure and learn from other people. Even if you don’t win, you’ll be able to earn points for participating. Eventually, these points will unlock exciting rewards.

We’re working on many other exciting projects that we can’t wait to share with you. Make sure to join our community today and introduce yourself. We’d love to meet you!
