I’m extremely excited to share 36 of the Best Photography Blogs with you. I grouped them into 10 photo blog niches. I know you are going to love this selection, without a doubt!
From portrait and wedding photography blogs to wildlife and underwater ones, to photo blogs that give advice, reviews, tutorials, tips, and great articles (on all things visual, digital, and analog), to photo blogs that showcase professional photographers’ portfolios, you’ll find amazing resources throughout.
Photography blogs showcase portfolios, inspire and teach
The planet has no shortage of brilliant, talented, adventurous photographers that go the extra mile for their craft. They capture moments and images from around the world, share invaluable knowledge with aspiring photographers, and keep them abreast of the latest news and technology in the photo world. I have found photography blogs that will blow your mind both visually and literally!
Portfolios are an essential feature when telling photo stories. Some photography blogs are elaborate galleries showcasing breathtaking images that have been edited and retouched to deliver amazing photos, transporting you to the time and place of the shot. Photography blogs differ from other blogs (like lifestyle blogs, travel blogs, or food blogs) because often the main content is image-rich, not text-rich. But just like other blogging genres, a rich pool of niche photography blogs get created daily.
So we are going to jump right in and showcase the best photography blogs around. I will share with you what makes each photography blog stand out from the rest. Because believe me, there is a lot more to being a photography blogger than meets the eye! (pun intended).
How many different types of photography blogs exist? And what makes some of them stand out from the rest?
Let’s find out!
What are Photography Blogs?

How to Come up with a Blog Name
When I think of photography blogs there are two distinct groups. One is the photoblog that contains image-rich content and showcases portfolios of photographers, architects, designers, models, and similar professions that use photo stories.
The second group are the photography blogs that talk about photography. These blogs have content that is both text and image-rich. And with these blogs, you’ll find excellent advice on
- How to take better shots,
- Which photography gear is best suited to your specific needs,
- How to process and publish good images,
- Digital vs analog
- Photography for beginners
- Basics of photography
- How to start a blog
- How to monetize a blog – photography blog
- And so much more!
Then, of course, there are the different genres of photography like
- underwater photography,
- wildlife/nature photography,
- wedding shoots,
- action/sports shots (see best fitness blogs or sports blogs),
- landscape portraits,
- stills, and don’t forget,
- fashion shoots (fashion blogs),
- street photography,
- stock photography,
- and the list goes on.
As a photography blogger, you may choose to focus on the technical aspects of photography to help aspiring photographers take better shots. Or you might hone in on one of these niches, thereby creating your own photography blog niche which will appeal to a core audience that you choose and understand.
There is also an abundance of fantastic editing software developed for digital photography, from the well-known Adobe Photoshop to the free open-source Rawtherapee and loads more.

Travel Photography Blogs
Travel photographers really do seem to have the best life. Traveling to exotic locations and experiencing sights, smells, and sounds across the globe. They are very much like wildlife photographers except that their photos feature buildings and people as well as nature and wildlife. It’s hard to separate travel photo blogs from travel blogs. But in this case, I went with the blogs that had well-written articles and great photos. And they don’t necessarily focus on giving photographic advice as much as travel advice.
Let’s take a look at some outstanding Travel Photography Blogs.

Street Photography Blogs
So street photography is not what it says it is! You will not always find pictures of the street, or even pictures of people standing in the streets. Street photography is also called candid photography and focuses on capturing shots that at first glance seem random and spontaneous.
Street photography is about art. It is a niche within the photo blogging genre. Street photography can be exciting and raw, often the subject is unaware they are being photographed. This gives street photography a completely different feel to photos that are styled or posed for. Here are some great examples of street photography blogs.

35. The Portrait Photographer Blog
This is the blog of Marcus Harvey, a London-based portrait and headshot photographer. His blog showcases his portraits. Words are sparse but he does give tips and advice throughout. As with all types of photography, taking portrait photos requires the photographer to focus on aspects not needed when taking other types of photos. And Marcus Harvey’s blog showcases portraits spectacularly.
Stock photography blogs
Stock photography is a huge online marketplace for buying and selling photos. Photographers can sell their “stock” by submitting their shots to various stock photo agencies. When people need images for the content they choose what they need and pay a small fee. They don’t buy the rights to the photo, they just pay to use it.
Well-known sites like Getty Images and Shutterstock are good examples of stock photo agencies. The stock photography blog I have chosen is not quite the same. This photography blog is aimed at photographers looking for advice on how to market their work and how to take great stock photos.
36. Microstock Man
This is the go-to blog for anyone wanting to take stock pictures and sell them. The site has two main categories:
- Learn To Sell,
- Shop For Stock.
This blog has excellent reviews on other photo stock blogs as well as a great library of resources for people interested in selling and/or buying stock images.
