World Photography Day?

Many people that have mentioned that they've never heard of World Photography Day. Why is that? World Photography Day wasn't 'created' by a big brand as a marketing tool. Rather, it's a day where photographers had started to come together to celebrate photography, just because they could. Any excuse to throw a party right?

Slowly, groups around the world have started to get on board with the idea of World Photography Day and you will find traces of World Photography Day being celebrated over the last 20 years or so. Each year, World Photography Day has gained momentum and this year, we're hoping to bring photographers together once again with an even larger audience.



Why August 19th?

World Photography Day originates from the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic processes developed by Louis Daguerre.  On January 9, 1839, The French Academy of Sciences announced the daguerreotype process. A few months later, on August 19, 1839, the French government announced the invention as a gift "Free to the World."

Another photographic processes, the Calotype, was also invented in 1839 by William Fox Talbot (it was announced in 1841). Together, the invention of both the Daguerreotype and Calotype mark 1839 as the year that photography was invented.

If you're interested in learning more about the history of photography, take a look at the following article on Wikipedia: History of Photography en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_…



What's World Photography Day?

World Photography Day is all about celebrating photography and remembering how special a photograph can be.

Today, we take our photographs for granted. But next time you're flicking though photos from your last holiday, remember that there was once a time when photography didn't exist. A time when those precious moments couldn't be captured, uploaded and shared.

On August 19th, celebrate photography and share your world with the world!

Happy Photography to all ;)
