What is the 52 Project?

The 52 Week Project is a photography challenge that encourages photographers to take 1 photograph every week for 52 weeks. Some people work on this project alone, while others collaborate with friends.

At PhotographyCourse.net, we believe in the power of community and motivation. This is why we created a dedicated forum where you can get all the inspiration and knowledge you need to have a successful 52 Week Project experience! Every week, you'll be introduced to educational resources that will help you grow in different areas of photography. No matter who you are or where you live, you're welcome to join us at any time. It's completely free!

We're going to guide you through the process and help you develop all kinds of photography skills. Our weekly videos will focus on a specific theme. Some of our themes are specific, like food photography, while others are more abstract, like "introduction". Regardless of how specific or abstract the themes are, we'll teach you how to take photos that don't just look good, but also tell a story.

Who Can Join the 52 Week Project?

Typically, photography challenges have specific requirements. Our 52 Week Project is the exception. Everyone is welcome to join.

You don't need to worry about:

Your location - All you need is a strong Internet connection that allows you to watch videos. We care about helping photographers around the world. If you're passionate about what you do, don't worry about your geographical location. We don't discriminate. :)

Timing - Whether you join us when the 52 Week Project is at Week 10 or at Week 52, you don't need to worry about timing. Our themes are evergreen. They're always going to stay relevant, no matter when you join us.

This Challenge is Perfect for You If...

You're curious about different photography genres.

Photography is a big, big world that’s full of interesting things to explore. If you want to learn something new and get creative on a weekly basis, this challenge is perfect for you!

You want to make your photography portfolio stand out.

If you feel that something is missing in your portfolio, you might need to develop your skills and try something new. This challenge will encourage you to leave your comfort zone and experiment with different techniques. Every week, you'll be challenged to think about photography from a different perspective and to use your camera in creative ways. By the end of this challenge, you'll have a stronger and more eye-catching portfolio.

You can't take photos every day.

For this challenge, you just need to have one photoshoot every week. If you have more time to take photos, great! If not, don't worry about having to catch up on hundreds of assignments.
