I just can’t believe it. Yanik’s Photo School is already 1 year old! How time flies when you’re having fun.
I would like to start by saying thank you to all who have spent time on YPS learning from my tutorial ramblings. You are my motivation. You keep the flame of my teaching passion lit. You push me to better myself in my art and my profession. This will sound cliché but without you, YPS would have died a long time ago. A special thank you goes out to Darren Rowse over at Digital-Photography-School.com and Udi Tirosh at DIYPhotography.net for generously offering to share my tutorials through their sites.
My first post went live on this day last year and I never thought YPS would grow this fast. YPS currently has over 1800 loyal RSS readers, close to 100 000 page views per month and a total of 75 photography tutorials. What an incredible journey!
What have I learned this last year? Tons!I learned…
– how to design, redesign and redesign a blog.
– that what I thought would only be about 1 day a week of my time to keep the blog going ended up being a heck of a lot more!
– that each thank you message that I got and keep getting from you is a ray of sunshine in my day.
– to push my post processing and photography skills further through your questions and suggestions.
– and so much more…
So… when it’s someone’s birthday, it’s tradition to give presents, right? So, to celebrate Yanik’s Photo School‘s 1 year anniversary, I’m giving you, my loyal YPS reader, a chance to win the soon to be famous YPS SCHOLARSHIP! You heard me. A scholarship. And not just any scholarship. Through the generosity of Scott Kelby and Kelby Training, one lucky person will win a 1 year membership to Kelby Training’s online courses! Stay tuned for more details very very soon.
I’m looking forward to see what YPS will bring in its 2nd year of life. It should be as great of a ride as year one… probably even better! Keep on reading, watching, commenting and learning. I hope you like the new banner and subtle background change.
