Don't waste your time reading photography blogs that suck: discover 10 of the best blogs to follow this year!

One of my biggest skills is a unique knack to find all the cool sh*t, and one of my favorite things to do on this blog is to share what I find with you. I've been reading and following various photography related blogs for nearly a decade now, and I've compiled this list of 10 of my current favorites. Whether you just got your first DSLR and are looking to unravel all the mysteries within that magic box of light, or you've been shooting for years and want to strengthen your skills... there is something for every skill level here. Enjoy!

SLR Lounge

A fantastic photography blog featuring industry news and tutorials for every skill level. I've been following SLR Lounge for many years now and they do not disappoint. 

Chase Jarvis

Chase Jarvis is by far one of my favorites. As skilled as he is talented, Chase has worked his tail off to become a well-known, well-respected name in the industry. 

Consisting of primarily short, well-produced video, his blog is easy to consume. And he doesn't hesitate to share the education and inspiration that got him to where he is today. 

 

FStoppers

Fstoppers is one of my go-to photography blogs for stories, news, and photo tips.

 

Digital Photography School

Perfect for photographers of all levels, and SO much content! Have fun getting lost in the pages and pages of useful blogs!

 

Ground Glass

Ground-Glass is not a place to find more photo tips and tricks, nor is it a place to learn the latest editing trends. Instead, Spencer Lum cuts right to the heart of things, like why you shouldn't buy into success or get stuck in the difference trap. If you're wanting to think a bit deeper, to get a bit philosophical on the art of photography, this blog is for you!

 

PhotoDoto

From shooting, to lighting, to editing, you will find plenty to keep you busy reading at PhotoDoto.

 

Clickin Moms

Full of fabulous tips & tutorials, and endless inspiration! If you want to take better photos of kiddos, this is a great place to start!

 

Strobist

Their tagline says it all "Learn How To Light". Want to take your photos to the next level with off camera flash?  With how-to's, recommended books, recommended gear, interviews, reviews, and more-- Strobist is a great place to begin your lighting journey or deepen your knowledge! 

Don't forget to check out their flickr group! With over 100,000 people, you are sure to find answers to your lighting questions!

 

Click It Up A Notch

Although her homepage headline states, "Learn to photograph your family, beautifully", there is more to her blog than just the beginnings of "momtography". Here you will find pages of tips for anyone looking to improve their family and children photography. 

 

CreativeLive

Founded by Chase Jarvis, this site focuses on selling top-notch video courses for creatives. If you have the time and space to watch them live, the workshops can be streamed for free. But if you happen to miss one, the education you find here is certainly worth the investment in both time and dollars.
