Online monthly photography community round up for July

This has been a busy month in the online photography community, Creative Haven. We have been looking at sequencing and starting to put images together for portfolio competition entries, exhibitions or books.


Live Guests in Creative Haven

To complement this theme we were joined on a live meet-up by Tim Parkin, creator of The Natural Landscape Photography Awards and editor of On Landscape magazine. He was able to pass on his expertise and help members with questions about putting together a series of images that relate to one another as a potential project.


Coaching session in Creative Haven

Other meet-ups have featured coaching sessions with Margaret which have proved to be both popular and helpful for those being coached and members who prefer to just watch and learn. Coaching is such an incredibly valuable undertaking and I myself have as much coaching as I can. I always ensure it if from the right person which is very important. You will find an outside perspective useful in ways you would never have thought. I would encourage everyone who wishes to develop in their photography or artform to seek out coaching regularly. This is why I have added it into the online photography community – to give my members a chance to have some mini-coaching sessions as they need it. 


Coming up next month we have:

  • a new theme of patterns that should inspire you all as they can literally be found everywhere, both in the natural and manmade world
  • a live session with Matt Pereira, an IT specialist who will help you with sorting out your Lightroom storage and cataloguing
  • a one-off bookmaking course run by Lizzie Shepherd and Alex Hare exclusively for Creative Haven members
  • live meet-ups with coaching sessions and opportunities to meet other members
