#1: The Extra Mile


In every photo walk you have the moment where you think: "let's call it a day!" That is exactly the time where you have to push yourself to walk at least that "extra mile". It doesn't matter whether it's 5, 10 or 15 minutes. Just keep walking a little more. Don't pack your things even if you've had it, walk just a little more. You don't want to anymore? Think about it like this: All the photo opportunities you'll discover from that point on would've never been in your life. That always motivates me so much!

I've taken at least a third of my award-winning shots during those "extra miles"! You won't believe how incredibly good it feels to discover something you were never meant to discover if it weren't for that tiny bit of extra motivation. Try it out!

The extra mile is packed with golden moments. There is only one question: Are you going to get them?

“There are no traffic jams along the extra mile.”
