I've compiled my favorite photos from 2017. This is the 8th consecutive “Your Best Photos” blog project that I’ve participated in. Thanks to my friend, +Jim Goldstein, for hosting this project as usual.

Malcolm Gladwell wrote a famous book, Outliers: The Stories of Success, where his research concluded that having a world-class skill took a minimum of 10,000 hours of effective practice to achieve. Whether or not 10,000 hours is some magical benchmark is debatable but there is merit in acknowledging Gladwell’s point as it relates to photography.

Having experienced a handful of negative experiences at popular photography hotspots over the years, I was apprehensive about photographing sunrise at Grand Teton National Park.

It’s no secret that over-crowding is becoming an increasingly common concern at a number of our National Parks. With the crowds come more problems. I have some solutions that I would like to propose in order to improve visitor experience.

Whenever I scroll through my social media feeds these days, it seems like many photographers only share their photos for the purpose of selling workshops or some other kind of service. Perhaps it’s due to who I follow on social media but I’m seeing less photographers share their photos for the sake of personal expression.

To be great or even good at photography it takes a lot of time and resources. The same can be said for marriage and parenting. So how do photographers manage to balance their photography efforts with family life?

Like many photographers, I own a collection of photography books. I’ve curated a list of my favorite books for photographers. http://www.rwongphoto.com/blog/books-for-photographers/

As I reflect back upon my years in photography, I feel that my personal evolution as a photographer has largely been shaped by what was going on in my life at the time. As time has passed I find myself frequently not recognizing my older works or questioning why I made the creative decisions that I did at the time. I guess that is natural and a good thing. People change over time. I imagine that I’ll be refining my personal vision as a photographer for the rest of my life, or at least I hope.

I originally wrote this series of articles on another site ten years ago and wanted to update this for my own site. In addition to being a photographer, I have served in various marketing roles at advertising agencies, media and adventure travel companies since graduating from college. Since most photographers do not have a background in marketing I wanted to start sharing some of thoughts on the subject and hopefully help some people along the way.

Part I: SWOT Analysis
Part II: Target Audiences
Part III: Perceived Value

Rarely does a week go by that I don’t hear from business owners and photographers about how Facebook ads are a waste of money, etc... I disagree. Let me explain why - http://www.rwongphoto.com/blog/are-facebook-ads-worth-it/
