World Photography Day is an annual, worldwide celebration of the art, craft, science and history of photography and with social media being an everyday part of our lives, creativity in imagery has never been important.

Since the early 19th century, photography has become an ever-increasing medium of personal expression. A photograph has the ability to capture a place; an experience; an idea; a moment in time. As the old saying goes ‘a picture is worth a thousand words‘  Photographs can convey a feeling faster than, and sometimes even more effectively than words can. A photograph can make the viewer see the world the way the photographer sees it.

Photographs even transcend the passing of time – a photo from a hundred years ago can still be as appreciated now, as it was then. A photo taken tomorrow, can still be just as appreciated by others in a hundred years’ time. And imagery has revolutionised travel as we see with articles like 50 Most Beautiful Places in the World from Conde Nast Traveller
