Did your camera get a little dusty during Covid-19? It’s time to reclaim photography!
Let’s be honest — we all had a challenging 2020. Whether we were stuck at home with kids, working from home, not seeing friends, or not being able to travel, Covid-19 has presented unique challenges for all of us.
But hope is on the horizon! We thought it was about time dust off our cameras and get back outside to photograph the world around us!
Join the Visual Storytelling Conference on May 14, 2021 for an international photowalk. Led by passionate photographers across the globe, these photowalks will seek to expand your imagination after a year of being cooped up inside. Reconnect with old friends, make new ones and let your creativity go to work!
