What comes to mind when you talk about photography groups?

 

Is it the number of members,

how active the group is, or how many presets they give out?

 

The pandemic changed our lives forever and understanding

that it will never be the same is where we are now.

But should it stop us?

 

When the pandemic was declared, we were all caught off-guard

not knowing how bad it was. We’ve lost friends, and family members along the way, but still, what resonates is the fact that we are here

to survive, to fight and die trying.

 

The creative spirit is pandemic proof

— that’s how powerful visual creation is.

 

Photonation is a testament that we will be here to guide and serve as a beacon for hope and inspiration to others. We are not an ordinary facebook group. We’re a family. We don’t discriminate, we empower. We help push ourselves up and celebrate the small wins together.

 

We’ve been told that we’re fighting a battle we can’t win, but together, we will prove them wrong. New technologies are coming and we are at the forefront of what’s to come. We are here to lead and serve the community to the best of our abilities,

harnessing the power of visual creation.

 

They say the universe conspires to those who dream.

We are a testament of that dream — believing in each other is the only secret. If you go deeper and put your heart and soul in to it,

you make those visions a reality.

 

This pandemic is only the beginning, and a battle that will define

who we are is ahead of us.

Authenticity will define who we choose to become.

 

Photo Nation is built by a proud generation of visual storytellers,

young and old alike. Across all gender, thriving in an online community. We welcome you to a new world of possibilities

and here, the passion lives on.
