Improve your wildlife photography in 2020. Setting goals for the year ahead.
Hey guys Tom here!
Happy New Year to everyone and I’m excited to be back getting started on some new content for the channel. Having been snowed under with loads of work in the latter part of 2019, a house move and various on going projects I didn’t manage to get a chance to work on some new videos, but with 2020 here I’m hoping to change all that.
Today I want to kick off with a few of my project plans and focuses as well as give you some reasons why sitting down and spending time planning your photography is key to helping you have a truly successful years shooting!
In the coming week you’ll be seeing lots more from me with new camera trap content, gear reviews and tip and technique videos to help you with your wildlife photography. I’m looking forward to being back in the UK full time and kicking off getting out and working with some of my favourite subjects in the coming months!
