Hi everyone, Happy New Year! Lots to catch up on in this post, so we’ll start with the biggest news, which is that I have two new book projects coming out in 2020, so stay tuned for ordering information for What Bears Teach Us (Rocky Mountain Books, 2020) that’s a cooperative project with a close friend of mine, grizzly bear biologist Sarah Elmeligi. And also keep your eyes peeled for a self-published project I’m working on with author Dr. Vineet Nair and his wife, acclaimed parenting educator and international media parenting expert, Andrea Loewen Nair, called I Feel Like a Bear, due this spring 2020.
Latest EXPOSED Videos
We’ve been fairly quiet with EXPOSED with John E. Marriott for a VERY good reason the past six months, but you’ll have to wait another month for the grand reveal on WHY we’ve been this quiet. Hint: it’s some pretty HUGE news that has me as excited as I’ve ever been in my entire career!
In the meantime, we did post a few of our ever-popular #TrailCamTuesday videos recently, including one of a mother cougar and her two kittens from a tracking project I led last winter with the Wildlife Defence League: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WiAji5y_7ZQ
The other EXPOSED #TrailCamTuesday video is one of my favourites, a montage of images from a wolf kill that I put a trail cam at a few winters ago. Watch til the end, it’s worth it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3fKXvCX7qM
Online Photography Course
For those of you that have always wanted to make a few dollars (or lots of $$!) from your nature photography, what better way to start the new year than my investing in yourself and taking this amazing Business of Photography online course that I was a part of in 2019.
The Business of Photography gives you back-door access to the inner workings of six successful photography businesses, including my own. You get first-hand insight into how each of us made our businesses happen and thrive so that you can follow our leads and make a living doing what you love.
The course is made up of over 15 hours of video that you can watch (and re-watch) at your own pace, including more than 30 modules covering a broad range of topics, from startup to creating and selling products, and from the behind-the-scenes work required to run a business all the way to managing social media, and so much more. It’s ALL there, with six different viewpoints from a wide range of outdoor photography genres.
For the first week of 2020 (until January 8th, 2020), we’re offering a $100 discount on the course, just use the code REACHYOURGOALS at checkout. And if you’re reading this after January 8th, you can still get $50 discount by using the code JOHNEMARRIOTT at checkout.
More to Come in 2020
I’ve got a full slate of Canadian Wildlife Photography tours and workshops for 2020 that will be online by next week, and am also scheduled to speak at the Whitehorse Camera Club from February 7th-9th, 2020 and at the HOWL Wildlife Photography Convention in Algonquin Park in Ontario from October 23rd-25th, 2020.
Thanks again for all of your support in 2019, here’s to hoping 2020 is even better for our wild places and wildlife. Thanks everyone!
