Ongoing photo projects are fun and inspiring. They can train your mind to recognize photo opportunities and your work will benefit. We’ll discuss why you should have such projects, the benefits behind them and we’ll even give you a few ideas.
It’s easy to fall into a monotonous routine. To stay inspired, many photographers have side projects featuring similar subjects or a common theme. This week, we feature photographer Dennis Maitland who has an ongoing project, “Life On The Edge”, which features the photographer sitting on the edge of tall buildings. Acrophobes may not wish to read on, but if you want to be inspired by Dennis’s project, you should read on.
A year long photo project could help you become a better photographer. But it could also hinder you. Learn from our experiences (and our failures) as we share our wisdom and inspirations. Also feel free to share your projects with us for an upcoming article.
Let us know about your year-long photo projects so that we can include in an upcoming article. Details inside.

Many of us have been talking of doing photo projects for the new year. For example, I will be doing a Photo 365 Project called No Words. Other’s have mentioned casually that they were doing similar projects – either in comments here at Shutter Photo, on Flickr or via Twitter. I of course would like to follow as many of your projects as possible, and I’m sure others would like to do the same. So if you are doing a Photo 365 project, or something similar, reply to to this post and tell us where we can find it. Feel free to mention your blogs and websites as well.
