For this week’s blog, I thought I’d do something a little different… and not write a blog.  Well, sort of.  Instead, I want to share with you one of the Inspiration Sheets that I created for Academy Members.  I produced this inspiration sheet about a year ago and its intent was to inspire Academy Members in different ways to photograph Christmas.

I hope this year as I make that particular Inspiration Sheet available to a wider audience, that you too will be inspired to photograph Christmas.

You can download it from here:

I hope you have a fantastic Christmas.  Please share your Christmas images by using the hashtag #InspiredByIansStudio

Until next time, keep MAKING great images,


Do you find the information in these blog posts helpful?

Did you know that Academy members get a weekly Inspiration Sheet with loads more hints, tips and advice than I ever put in the newsletter? Also, each month Academy Members get a downloadable monthly PDF with all of that month’s blog posts in a magazine format that is easy to keep or print for future reference.

So what are you waiting for?
