I’m Phil.  The idea for 52winners is to have 52 exceptional photos by the end of the year.   If you’re like me – not shooting for a living – you’re in roughly the same boat and need attainable goals and practices to improve and succeed.  That’s the focus of this site.

Rather than spending another year doing roughly the same thing, I want to make certain that in 52 weeks, I’ve grown my art and answered these questions:

  • Who is my audience?
  • What are my motives for investing so much time and money in photography?
  • Am I producing objectively good work?
  • Where is my photography going?

It seems like everyone is a photographer, and lots of IGers are established and confident of their footing in their subject and target audience. Others are still working on their confidence and strengths.  I want 2018 to be a good investment toward my 10,000 hours.

Amateur does not mean “mediocre.” I believe in excellence, and I’ll bet you do too.  I hope to engage with and learn from the larger community of photographers.  I will be posting my best photo per week of my own, as well as featuring photos taken by others during the week.

Thanks for stopping by!

Phil Lewis
