Today is the second week of the #KatieJadePhotoChallenge. The theme “Character” runs till the 16th August. 

So, what does “Character” mean to you? Is there a character from a film or book which you’d like to recreate or represent? Could you portray one of your characteristics in a photograph? These are a few questions to get you started, and hopefully inspired to start taking photos.

Share your “Character” photographs with me by uploading them to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and use the hashtag #KatieJadePhotoChallenge. I can’t wait to see your photos! 

If you still have photos from the “Changes” week which you have not uploaded or not finished, don’t panic! You can still upload them, but make sure you caption them “Changes” so it separates them from the “Character” images. The “Changes” photographs I have seen are incredible! Thank you to all of you who have taken part in #KatieJadePhotoChallenge so far!

At the end of August I will be giving away a £20 voucher to the overall winner of the challenge. GOOD LUCK!! 


Today is the start of the #KatieJadePhotoChallenge. The theme “Changes” runs till the 9th August. 

So, what does “Changes” mean to you? Has there been a big change in your life? Have you noticed a change in your environment? Has there been a big change in the news which means a lot to you? These are a few questions to get you started, and hopefully inspired to start taking photos.

Share your “Changes” photographs with me by uploading them to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and use the hashtag #KatieJadePhotoChallenge. I can’t wait to see your photos! 

At the end of August I will be giving away a £20 voucher to the overall winner of the challenge. GOOD LUCK!! 

Katie Jade’s Photography Challenge!

I challenge you to take one photo each week of August, and for each week I have selected a theme as a starting point. You can take the photos on any device, such as a phone, tablet, DSLR or standard compact camera. The concept behind this challenge is to get you to consider your subject creatively to bring your photography to life!

The themes:

3rd August - 9th August “Changes”

10th August - 16th August “Character”

17th August - 23rd August “Temptation”

24th August - 30th August “Light”

31st August “In To The Future”

How to choose a subject …

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of the word or phrase?  Look at the word or phrase and work out what it means. You could play word association (one person says a word, the next person will say a word which they associate with it. E.G. “Animal”, “Dog”) with a friend or family member to discover what they can come up with. These suggestions should inspire you to decide what your subject will be. Then you should work out how you want to photograph your subject (from above, macro lens, etc). Now you may need to collect items you will need to take the photograph (outfits, fabric for a backdrop, subject, etc), you may find the suitable equipment round your house or garden. 


Once you’ve have taken your photo, it is up to you whether you choose to edit it. At the end of August you will have taken five amazing concept driven photographs! 

You can share your brilliant photos with me by uploading them to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram by using the hashtag 


I won’t be able to find them without the hashtag!

I will be taking photos each week too and I will share with you what I have taken at the end as well as explaining how I worked with the theme.
