Where it all started…
The Hunters of Light initiative was born out of the COIVD-19 lockdown. The moment the Lockdown was announced, 95% of the photographers I know lost their jobs. Weddings, portraits, food, newborn – all photography was immediately cancelled.
I thought that there must be hundreds, if not thousands of photographers who were also feeling the emotional as well as the financial strain of the situation.
So I started 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. This would help to inspire, motivate and spark ideas so that we can come out of this not only surviving but with renewed passion and fire in our hearts.
My name is Quintin Mills and I am a Hunter of Light.
Launch the Hunters of Light Facebook Group
Launch the Hunters of Light Youtube Channel
The Community based website contains all the info about the initiative – the contributors, articles, tutorials, forums, competitions etc.
You are here :-).
The next logical step.
In the first 100 days since the Hunters of Light was started, we had over 3000 members, generated 75 hours of photographer presentations and hundreds of thousands of reactions and comments on the Facebook group.
There was obviously a need for a group that would support photographers through education, training and advice from professionals and industry experts.
The Hunters of Light aims to provide a space for photographers to interact with others, improve their skills through tutorials, photo critiques, workshops and discussion forums moderated by genre experts.
We will start small and grow over time as the needs of the members change.
After all, the Hunters of Light community is nothing without you.
