An introduction to Blog Photography: what is photography for bloggers? Did you know that a blogger needs specific photographic skills to run a blog? Let me simplify that for you so that you can no longer feel disappointed by your photography.
Why should we dig into Blog Photography?
Photography is one of the most important parts of your blog. Think about it, content is key but are you more intrigued and happy to read an amazing post with attracting-related images or the same text, plain, with no outstanding lines, encyclopedia-style?
I much rather prefer a blog post with some nice imagery. Even unconsciously I am attracted to a piece of writing with images that immediately explain to me what it is all about. Actually, it’s our brains that instinctively go to images before reading a text.
Isn’t it the same about blogging?
After years in the blogging world, I have recognized the most valuable posts come alongside attracting imagery. In fact, our attention is first drawn to the image. Only after, we read the title.
So I say: let’s improve blogging with a better photography style!
Now I know that we are not all professional photographers, but we are also not copywriters, graphic designers or journalists, yet we use their skills for preparing our posts daily.
Isn’t this the reality behind every blogger? Oh yes! Same goes for photography.
Unfortunately, there is NO school for blog photography.
We are that school: me & you, we bloggers! By ourselves, we prepare what we need in terms of photography.
Follow me and I can help you make the best out of your camera, your locations in order to achieve the best photography accordingly to your blog niche.

What is Blog Photography
The Photography for Bloggers Explained
Photographing for your blog is not simple. When you think of writing a blog post you should also have a stock of images. To be honest, you must create them. In order to have original images, you need to consider the time to shoot them.
Now, this takes a lot of efforts if you don’t know where to start. And no one knows at the beginning.
After years, I have found out that there is a recurring type of photographs bloggers need.
Blog photography is that photography needed by bloggers.
Fashion bloggers need a specific photography, travel bloggers another, beauty & lifestyle another type again.
Blog Photography gathers all the information on how to create the best photography possible for bloggers.
Starting from the gear bloggers need (camera or phone), master the use of props, analyse and feel powerful in front of a camera, be able to use a camera at best and be a boss in planning shoots.
Also, the research of locations, the knowledge of lights, the post-editing part and the saving process is very important.
Knowing all these little processes makes the work of a blogger (professional or not) much much easier and avoid feeling burnout or anxious.
How to Grow your Photography Skills
I have been in the situation where I had no photos left, no photographer/friend to help me shoot and I started panicking.
Of course, I looked at free stock photos online but honestly, that put me down even more. They are all the same, they don’t add any value to my blog and they don’t show my style.
That’s why I started thinking that Blog Photography is a precise skill to grow.
That’s why I started asking myself questions on how I photograph and so I created a schedule that helps me stay in control of my photography and my blog.
Learning Blog Photography is the best thing I have ever done because I master the first impression of my blog plus is the FUNNIEST part of blogging.
Being able to express myself by creating images.
But more importantly, having a clear Blog Photography style has helped me save time, stay consistent with blogging and making me recognizable.
And I want to teach you how you can do it too.

Yes, it is passion that drives me. And I am sure it is the same thing that makes you write on your blog as well.
Passion. So let me share my passion for photography & blogging with you.
