30 Day Summer Vibes Photography Challenge

With the first day of Summer coming this month (yippee) it’s a great time to get out there in the sunshine and start shooting! We’ve created a 30 Day Summer Vibes photography challenge to help motivate you and practice your skills.

There's no pressure here, no rules and no right or wrong. Simply use our word prompts and let your imagination go crazy. We've provided some guidance for you, but at the end of the day this is about having fun and creating work that inspires you.

1. Summer Flat Lay

What says summer to you? Whether it's fresh fruits, a fresh summer tea, or your favourite accessories practice your photo styling by creating a summer vibe flatlay.
