Hayley Snell's put together an epic bucket list that's filled to the rim with photographic ideas to inspire you.

From time to time we all get bored of photographing the same things, no matter what level of photographer you are! That’s why I decided to compose a list of places and things you must photograph in your lifetime. Although some of these places do require a fair bit of travelling, I’m hoping this list inspires you when you experience a block- just think of it as a photography bucket list!

The shoot suggestions are accompanied by some of the lovely images ePz members have captured so please do take the time to visit their portfolios. There's also plenty of links through to articles that'll help you cracking captures for your bucket list challenge, too.
