Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love
We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.
But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.
48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.
If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.
Remember when you were young and someone would ask you what you wanted to be when you grew up? The only answer I can ever remember giving was "a photographer for National Geographic". Lofty goal, I know, and unfortunately I did not continue down that path as many told me it was unobtainable and unreasonable as a career option. As fate would have it I found myself leaning towards another career which allowed me to play with optics, care for people, and bring beauty to the world in a different way. I enjoy what I do as a professional optometrist and find it rewarding to be able enhance the way people see the world. But in that profession it's easy to spend too much time in a dark little room with no windows, and it's no wonder that I'm starting to crave the sunshine and fresh air I always had when I actively pursued my photographic activities. I also recently had another birthday and in reflecting upon my accomplishments over the years, it’s time to open up a childhood dream and see if I can make it possible. I may not make it onto National Geographic’s payroll, but perhaps I can become good enough to be featured in the magazine.
