Happy New Year and my goals for 2014

Happy New Year and my goals for 2014

I wish you all a Happy New Year! May 2014 be filled with happiness and success. I really want to wish you success in everything you attempt his year, whether it’s about photography or anything else!

Before I tell you my goals for 2014, just a word about the images in this article. They are not from New Year’s Eve but from a Toronto event in early December called the Cavalcade of Lights. It’s a big event at the City Hall during which they light the city’s Christmas tree for the first time. Even though it was pretty cold, the firework show was really cool!

I have gathered 10 goals for this year. They’re mostly about photography, but not all of them. Here’s the list, in no particular order, with a few explanations:

  • Build an architectural portfolio: my main focus in 2014 will be about architecture and I want to be able to show a full architectural portfolio.
  • Have my images in a public space: I would like to exhibit some of my images, maybe in a restaurant or an art gallery.
  • Publish at least 2 ebooks and 10 video tutorials: I want to focus on bringing more to the community by publishing post-processing tutorials and I have two ebook projects in the works.
  • Visit at least 5 cities and meet new photographers: I want to keep on travelling and meeting awesome people!
  • Launch a monthly newsletter: the aim is to see how it works out for you and for me. Let’s see if I can bring some interesting content to you this way!
  • Publish monthly wallpapers: I tried to do it last year but gave up. This year I’m better prepared and I want to give you a nice gift every month.
  • Explore stock photography: this is something I wanted to try for a long time. The aim is to do some research, and if it sounds interesting, try it out.
  • Attend my first workshop: I would love to go to an architecture photography workshop this year!
  • Find a job: I’m currently jobless since my move to Canada, so this is something that I really need to do!
  • Be happy: this might be the main objective for 2014. I’ve been in a good place for several years now, and I really want to keep it that way! I have a exciting life in a new country ahead of me, so it shouldn’t be too hard!

Thank you for reading through all of this. It’s in writing, so you can hold me accountable at the end of next year. I’ve done a Year In Review article for 2013 and I will do the same in one year.
