There are a few different reasons many people opt to launch a photography blog. One reason might be to share their own work, as a type of portfolio. These people may also have their own photography business they use as their career or a side job. You might also think about starting a blog like this not because you’re a photographer yourself, but because you want to create a lifestyle blog for people with similar interests to your own. Even if you’re launching a photography blog simply because it’s an interest you have, you can monetize it through tactics like advertising.
Regardless of why you’re starting a photography blog, it can be a difficult because of the high competition level. Below are some tips to starting a blog that can help ensure it stands out from the others and gains a following.
Add Your Own Voice
Whether you’re a photographer or you’re sharing other people’s images, one of the best ways to set yourself apart is to share your own voice and opinions on your blog. That’s something you have that no one else can duplicate, and you should use it to your advantage. If you’re a professional photographer, and you’re sharing your images, include blog posts highlighting what it was like to take those photos, share interesting stories or get into the technical details. If you’re sharing other images, use this as an opportunity to create a narrative of why they impacted you and how.
