Congratulations to jfournierphoto!

Congrats to Jacques. He finished up his project on the last day of August. Woo hoo. And to celebrate he had a little party! Fun & fantastic cloning I'd say. And ooo look... I see the first 365 community blurb book in there too. Too cool!

Party !! (365 / 365)

Through his project, we got a peak into his life in Montreal, Canada. They definitely have 4 seasons up there! We also got to meet his family. Lots of beautiful candid portraits. And I noticed that Jacques would often look high up or straight down for his shot for the day. A fun point of view.

Below Jacques describes his project in his own words with a selection from his project in tucked in there. And at the end he shares his own favorites and tells us why.

What inspired you to begin your 365 Project?
Since I have busy professional and personal lives, my passion for photography is most often put aside by lack of time. I was looking for a way to get motivated to take pictures and a 365 project seemed like the perfect way to do this. Being forced to carry a camera and think of the daily pictures is a great source of motivation.

How would you describe your photography in just a few words?

It’s a very tough question to answer. As an amateur, I am still learning and experimenting different techniques and subjects, so I have not yet any blinders, I am doing anything and everything.

What surprised you the most about doing the 365 project?
Even though I primarily do the project for myself, I was surprised to make some new friends along the way and also very pleased with the support I get from my followers! The comments and encouragements from my family, friends and colleagues at the office are so great rewards.

What did you learn during the course of your project?
The real struggles and challenges I got were to come up with something different, original and meaningful each and every day. It would be easy just to snap a photo here and there and walk away (I did sometimes.), but it's a lot more rewarding to create everyday!

What are your future photography plans?
I will certainly continue to do projects, perhaps another 365 as they are great sources of motivation and inspiration, but not now. I would probably not make a career in photography but it is certainly a great hobby and a passion.

It’s hard to pick favorites in a 365, all the pictures have a story. But here are 3 of them...

This one was a hit and run, I wanted to have at least on with fog in my project, it was the perfect day but just had 30 minutes in between meetings. I literally ran to the location, snapped a few pictures and got that one. You need some talent to make photos like this, but luck is helping a lot.

Staying creative was always a challenge, but thanks to the project I got to try and learn new techniques, like this drop or my final photo.

For this project you have to carry a camera all the time, and being always ready allowed some great moments like this one to be captured.

Congrats again to Jacques. Yay! You can check out the rest of his project below.
