    10 Great Photography Blogs

    Photography is a wonderful freelance career for many talented photographers. I love looking at creative photography as many of the photos tell a such a unique story. The advent of the internet has spawned a never-ending line of image-hungry websites all vying for the best and brightest pictures to draw traffic. Even if you start as just a part time business, you can still make excellent money, and who knows? Maybe one day you’ll throw that corporate job to the wind and decide to become a full time photographer! Need some inspiration?

    I’ve got a list of ten fantastic photography blogs that will get you excited about pursuing the job of your dreams:

    1. Chromasia: http://www.chromasia.com/

    Based in the UK, this artist dabbled in photography for twenty years, but says that “it was only when I started posting images on the internet that I really began to take it seriously.” Since 2003 he has established his company chromasia, traveled around the world and won numerous awards. His portfolio ranges from portraits to the abstract.

    2. Joe McNally Photography: http://www.joemcnally.com/blog/

    Joe McNally is an internationally acclaimed photographer with over 30 years experience under his belt including assignments that span over 50 countries. It’s safe to say that Joe knows what he’s doing when it comes to photography. Not only is Joe a gifted photographer that shares his talent online, but he also mixes up his blog content with extraordinary writing as well. It’s not surprising that he has over 114k Twitter followers and that his fans are so engaging on his website. You’ll love it!

    3. The Blackbird and the Moon Flower: http://travelstock.inebeerten.be/index.php

    Freelance photographer travels around the world taking beautiful photographs which she sells on her blog. Not a bad way to make a living. There are some particularly beautiful shots of Asian art and architecture on this blog.

    4. Photoschau: http://www.photoschau.de/index.php

    A stunning photo blog that favors still life images in vivid color. The artist’s unique view of even the most common objects is a delight! Using organic and non-organic subjects, he provides a unique view of the world that hearkens back to childhood when everything is a brand new experience.

    5. Deceptive Media: http://www.deceptivemedia.co.uk/

    Texture and pattern are explored through intimate views of the subject matter often at extreme close up angles. Water and clouds feature predominately throughout this artists’ portfolio.

    6. Accessible: http://www.accessible.de/pixelpost/index.php

    Landscapes and natural images with an almost melancholy simplicity. The photographer uses various techniques to add an element of fantasy to the otherwise simple, everyday beauty of the subjects.

    7. San Francisco Daily Photo: http://www.sanfranciscodailyphoto.com/

    Proof that you don’t have to be a globe-trotter to capture amazing images; this photographer simply walks the streets of his city, snapping photos on a daily basis and posting them to his blog. If you’ve ever spent time in San Francisco, these photos will make your heart sing.

    8. Made in Tokyo: http://www.fgautron.com/weblog/

    Another great city blog featuring the great Japanese city of Tokyo featuring architecture, landscapes, and lots of human interest; this blog is a wonderful glimpse into a culture that fascinates millions around the world.

    9. Stuck in Customs: http://www.stuckincustoms.com/

    Trey Ratcliff’s website, know as “Stuck in Customs” is the number one travel photography blog on the Internet. This site gets an enormous amount of traffic and it doesn’t take long to figure out why after you’ve visited a few pages on the site. Trey promises a photo every day, and he definitely delivers, but the site is so much more than his daily upload. In fact, you don’t even have to be a photographer to develop an addiction to this site. It’s just pure awesome. You’ll see!

    10. My Glass Eye: http://www.myglasseye.net/

    A unique portfolio with portraits, stills and editorial shots that express the unique viewpoint of the artist; one that captures real world images in stark honesty.

      I was looking for an impressive iPhone/iPad app for editing my photographs and one of my friend had recommended me very cool app named “Photo Splash Fx”. Although I have tried many others but this one is simply wonderful, as it enables me to

      · Make my shots awesome, no matter if they are old vintage, black and white or new high resolution colorful photos, by applying a plethora of special effects.

      · Use selective colors, variety of brush sizes (adjust manually or automatically), gestures like Pan/Zoom/Splash, unlimited Undos, Colorize, Tintalize, Recolor, blend brush to create custom effects and text blending on your photo.

      · It supports both landscape or portrait mode and options like loading/importing photo from Cloud, instead of just from the camera or photo library.

      · Choice of 135+ built-in effects on different parts of the same photo and still have the option of creating your own custom effects.

      · Option to make favorite list of built-in effects to choose them easily for future.

      · Sharing my edited photographs with friends through Email, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Picassa, Dropbox or post it in form of the post card, to anywhere in the world.

        Digital photography is becoming the most popular hobby of the world today. The recent developments of smartphones, iphone/ipad has changed the way, how we think of photography. To give professional touch to your photographs, now it is not necessary to consult some professional. One may use various tools and apps to make one’s photographs masterpieces instantly with a few taps, particularly those taken on graduation/wedding ceremony, honeymoon trip or New Year celebrations. I have used many such apps in recent past. One of such app is Photo Splash FX on iPhone/iPad that provides following unique features that you can’t find in any other app altogether. I noticed following notable features:

        · Make your shots awesome, no matter if they are old vintage, black and white or new high resolution colorful photos, by applying a plethora of special effects.

        · Use selective colors, variety of brush sizes (adjust manually or automatically), gestures like Pan/Zoom/Splash, unlimited Undos, Colorize, Tintalize, Recolor, blend brush to create custom effects and text blending on your photo.

        · It supports both landscape or portrait mode and options like loading/importing photo from Cloud, instead of just from the camera or photo library.

        · Option to make favorite list of built-in effects to choose them easily for future.

        · Share your masterpiece with your friends through Email, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Picassa, Dropbox or post it in form of the post card, to anywhere in the world.

      Thanks for the informative examples of blogs. I am in the process of creating my own for my business website. I was never really big into writing about my photos, I always just thought, well if a photo speaks a thousand words, then why do I need to add any (lol) However, I am realizing the importance of blogging and the impact of interaction that the customers want. Anyway, thanks again for the information.

      I am always on the lookout for god sources of photos. Do photographers like these generally allow their images to be used online for non-commercial purposes? If not, where do you get most of your photos for this blog?
