As I’ve obviously missed the time for any looking back posts for the year 2016 (maybe it’s for the best, considering all the negative things), I’d like to jump on a New Year resolutions train. In fact, it’s more than simply a promise, it is an announcement of sorts.
First, a little bit of background. I don’t remember if I ever shared here the fact that I’m a teacher of English by profession. And for quite a long time last year I’ve been thinking if there is any way to combine two of my passions, to English and to photography. Here is what I came up with.
As a personal challenge and a way of being useful to photo community, I’ve decided to start creating learning materials aimed at photographers. I believe there are photogs, both amateurs and professionals, who would like to improve their English, and by making English materials with photography in mind I keep them relevant to those people. Do you travel a lot and need to communicate with people? Do you want to expand your reach to the audience abroad? Or are you looking for foreign contractors? These are cases I want to tackle when posting lessons and materials for this project.
Anyway, as I said, it is a challenge too. To see if it is even possible to pursue this path and keep up the good level of content, and to see if I’m fit for it.
This project was simply called Photo English Lessons and will be separate from this blog.
But I would like to take a moment here and encourage you to check out the project’s website, leave feedback here or there, and share it with those who in your opinion could benefit from it. I’d also like to ask you to subscribe to that website as well in order to receive updates. I promise it won’t be too often, once or twice a week. Three times tops, but I’m realistic about my time. Creating learning materials takes time after all.
Whether you decide to be a part of my experiment or not, I want to thank you for joining me in my photo journey in 2016 and I hope we’ll stay this way in 2017. It’s gonna be fun.
