Thanks Sony for mentioning the Hunters of Light in the Sony Alpha product launch.

The idea was simple, start a photography group where I could ask amazing photographers to do live presentations of their work, their process and provide hints and tips to other photographers. We hunt light, so let's call it the "Hunters Of Light".

Please share the love 

Exactly 10 months ago, the Hunters of Light was started on the night of Lockdown in South Africa.

I realised that I would have to stay busy to keep my mind off things, and I thought that there must be hundreds of photographers who might be feeling the same emotional and financial strain right now. I decided to launch this initiative, bringing talented people together to see how we could improve our photography.

I hoped this initiative would help to inspire, motivate and spark ideas so that we could emerge not only surviving but with renewed passion and fire in our hearts.

The Original Hunters Of Light.

At midnight on the 26th of March 2020, I started a Facebook group and currently, we have just over 3 200 members with 14 067 posts, 40 666 comments and 294 690 reactions.

With so much passion, excitement and interaction between the members it was obvious to me that I needed to create an environment where we could continue to educate, motivate and inspire the 3000+ members of this amazing community.

By offering a more organised platform where content could be searched for, be viewed by contributor or by category, it would make it much easier for members to find what they are looking for.

With this in mind, I have created a website to fulfil this mission for photographers of every level.

Educate, motivate and inspire

The Idea for the Hunters of Light and the Community has always been to educate, motivate and inspire and I hope to continue doing it for as long as I can.

I cannot do it without the amazing contributors who help to provide content in line with the mission of the initiative.

If you are photographer, videographer, editor, stylist (read “creative”), have business skills that will help build our industry or are a business and have products or services in the photography industry please consider joining us as a contributor or as a sponsor.

I want the Hunters of Light to support all brands and for all brands to support us in building the community.
So thanks Sony for mentioning the Original Hunters of Light in your Sony Alpha launch.
Now how about in return, you come on board as a supporting brand :-)?

C’mon Sony…

I would love it, the community would love it and besides… what a great story huh.
The Hunters of Light, our members are Hunters of Light, Sony is now also a Hunter of Light…

It’s like marketing magic.

For those of you who have not already, check out the almost 80 hours of content we created over the last 10 months on the Hunters of Light youtube Channel.

Much love and stay safe.
