One photo, each day, on the day, for a year. Sounds easy?

Well, now that I’m through my third project (and into my fourth) I have an idea of what’s involved and it can become quite challenging to maintain both the quality and the frequency. My aim is to achieve a visually pleasing image as opposed to a daily record and to this end I frequently use heavy image manipulation. With rare exception all images are taken with my iPhone, mostly for convenience.

The 2023 project will be a bit different as I will be running each day for a 365 day run streak and plan to take all images while out running.

My name is Paul Schnell and this is just a personal project taken on as a challenge. The goal has been to learn to see differently, be more spontaneous with photography and hopefully to discover that there are worthwhile images to be had just about everywhere. Looking back, the project has delivered on those goals and more. If you enjoy taking photos and aren’t afraid of the commitment I highly recommend going for it, you’ll be surprised and if nothing else its an interesting catalogue of a year in your life.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy!
