The Nature Photographer episode #23 on Wild & Exposed podcast

Editorial images must meet the photo editor’s requirements while also delivering something unique and intriguing for the publication. Consider having just one or two subjects for the year, like getting more and/or better photos of ducks, so you can offer a wide array of images of one subject to photo editors. © Dawn Wilson

Dawn Wilson, Ron Hayes, and Jason Loftus share their goals for the year ahead, helping us think about how to be better photographers and have better photography businesses. Hear what these three are doing to narrow their focus, make intentional choices, and avoid the temptation to chase subject matter—from RED Ranger Helium cameras to camera trap setups, waterfowl portfolios, American dippers, field journals, and not undermining the value of their work. Get tips and ideas to help you set a goal and see it through—no matter what time of year you begin.
