When I started the Nature Photography Show just over a year ago the thought of sponsors coming aboard to help out didn't even enter my thought. Yet here we are picking up our second one. Lensrentals has provided the Nature Photography Show with an affiliate link so when it's time to rent your next camera or lens just do so through the link provided on our sponsors page.
Not terribly long ago I went through a down sing in photography. I just couldn't get motivated to go out and do anything. In fact, I used about every excuse I could come up with just to stay home.
One day I decided to e-mail Rick Sammon about this issue figuring over his career he likely encountered the same issue. His advice to me was, "Just keep shooting."
Often times I find myself searching the internet for photography quotes. Looking at what those who have come before us have to say about the medium can be helpful and cause us to consider photography in a different light. There is also the added benefit of being inspired by the work of those who said the quote in the first place.
The Grand Teton National Park for lack of better words is well... grand. The peaks jut straight up out of a relatively flat area allowing for pristine views of the Grand Teton portion of the Rocky Mountains. One of the most iconic images of the Tetons comes from Ansel Adams at the Snake River Overlook. This image is one of many which have inspired photographers young and old. Snake River Overlook is one of the many places we will visit as we chase the light.
Well, I thought for sure I would write an article every day while shooting here in the Grand Teton National Park. Turns out exhaustion is a real thing for Nature Photographers. The latest I have slept here is 4am with the earliest at 2am so please forgive me for the lack of writing. Trust me, there is so much on the way.
If you are into nature photography you may have heard of an organization called NANPA. This is the North American Nature Photography Association. Make sure to take the time and consider joining them as there are several member benefit for avid nature photographers as well as those of us who host workshops and photography tours. It is a great way to network with like minded people as well as gaining access to webinars from industry professionals.
