2016: Photographically Speaking


2016 was a very, very busy year for me. It was also a very exciting one! 

I taught 10 photo workshops in 4 different countries.

I had a solo gallery show at the beautiful Mpls Photo Center. Watch the opening reception video here.

I recorded and aired a podcast episode each week. I left Street Focus on the TWiP network and launched a new podcast under my own brand Hit The Streets with Valerie Jardin without even missing a single week!

Fujifilm USA sent me on a few speaking assignments across the country as an official Fujifilm X-Photographer. I was also a speaker at a few photo conferences.

I filmed my first live action course for lynda.com/Linked-in. (Receive a free 10 day trial and watch the course by following this link)

I wrote and published an ebook which, I’m proud to say, turned out to be a big hit.

I signed a contact with a publisher in New York for a “real” print book to be published in the Fall of 2017.  As I am writing this, I am only a few days away from the publisher’s deadline and adding the finishing touches to the manuscript. I will be very happy when it’s off my hands and I can kick off the 2017 photography workshops in Paris in January 🙂

2017 is shaping up to be another busy year, with new exciting photographic adventures. 

Living your dream is the hardest thing you’ll ever do, but also the most gratifying.

Here is a selection of some of my favorite shots of 2016 in a 4 minute video format. Enjoy and thank you all for your continued support!

  1. Hi Valérie,
    Great work as usual. I love it.
    It must have been an interesting year for you.

    We’ll meet in New York at the end of february for Fujilove 2017.
    In the mean time, I was wondering what kind of mounting you used for your photographs in the Paris je t’aime exhibit?

    Thank you and a great 2017 to you.



    • Wow, that’s quite a question! I’d be happy to schedule an online consultation with you when time allows (I’m booked up until February). You can also read many articles and posts I’ve written about that over the years as well as many podcast conversations that you would find informative.
      Happy new year!
