Would you consider becoming a Hunters of Light Patreon?

The Hunters of Light was started to inspire and motivate the hundreds, if not thousands of photographers feeling the emotional & financial strain of the COVID 19 lockdown.

Please share the love 

The idea was simple, start a photography group where we could ask amazing photographers to do live presentations of their work, their process and provide hints and tips to other photographers. We hoped this would help to inspire, motivate and spark ideas so that photographers could emerge not only surviving but with renewed passion and fire in our hearts.

At midnight on the 26th of March 2020, we launched a Facebook group.
90 days later we had 2858 members and after 120 days this has grown to over 3500 members.

So how do we continue this incredible initiative?

We will continue to provide the Hunters of Light platform for as long as we can and thanks goes out to all those paid subscribers on the website, to the brands that support us with content and promotions and above all, Canon South Africa for providing prizes for the competitions.

Going forward we have decided that all areas of the website will be freely available.

Those choosing to get more in-depth features, access to giveaways and competitions will be able to do so by becoming Patreon members. By becoming a Patreon member you are not only receiving additional content and services, but you are helping us keep the dream alive and we want to reward you for believing in and supporting the Hunters of Light Initiative.
