As a photographer and travel tour operator, I mainly speak about topics regarding photography and travel, through my blog at Triple F Photo Tours. I am not solely focused on one or the other, so I thought it would help my readers to learn about these outstanding photography blogs for beginners, novice and intermediate learners. Some are known, and some are less known, but they all have something amazing to offer.
I love reading photography blogs and everything about photography. I will sometimes focus my time on delving into blogs for professional photography to deeper my understanding of my craft and keep up-to-date on what other photographers are doing in the world of photography.
Below is the list in no specific order.
#1 – Digital Photography School
I would say that Digital Photography School or DPS, for short, has the best following due to their in-depth articles and tutorials that accompany many of their blog posts. They speak about all genres of photography, including macro, portraits, travel and landscape.
They put out a daily newsletter with tips and resources to take your photography to the next level.
DPS was born in 2006 and is run by Darren Rowse, whose goal was to teach his readers how to get the most out of their digital cameras. Darren has a team of global photographers who write and offer tips for the site, which helps them put out daily content.

#2 – Fujilove Magazine
Fujilove Magazine is my go-to for everything Fuji. I only shoot Fuji, and this site gives me all my updates on gear, reviews, articles and a podcast in one place. They have good photography blog too for amateur or novice photographer with good tips. Founder Tomash Trzebiatowski, started this site in 2015 and it quickly caught on as the #1 site for Fuji camera lovers. While there are numerous sites about Fujifilm and specifically their camera systems, Fujj Love Magazine stands out because they also feature unknown photographers, such as myself, to a global audience, thereby giving one a platform to sing about their work.

You can join their Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/fujilove and look at their Frames FB group, which is for all photographers from all genres using any camera system.

Frames Magazine will also be coming out in print soon, so keep an eye out for this gorgeous eye-popping look at beautiful photography from talented photographers from all around the world.
#3 – Pixpa
I recently was introduced to Pixpa, when they approached me to share one of my blogs. Pixpa offers themed websites and sales platforms for photographers. While there are many of these types of sites in the marketplace, Pixpa stands out because they provide a built-for-you system. It is plug and play, which makes it easy to get up and running in no time. Their blog is chock-full of inspiring articles and tutorials that help every level of photographer. What I like best is that they provide a super discount to photographers who are still in school but want a platform to showcase their photography. Not many sites do this, and I applaud them for how they want to help as we have all been there as starving artists, and any help you can get is incredible.

#4 – Fstoppers
While they are not a blog perse, I still have to mention Fstoppers. When I want technical know-how or to learn something that I have an issue with (even when you are a working photographer, you are still learning), I check out Fstoppers. The online community aims to educate and inspire working photographers to keep improving with reviews, talk of camera, business tips, and tutorials by professional photographers. I mainly check them out for reviews on gear as they break down why you should or should not buy a specific piece of equipment and don’t get paid (like some bloggers do) to convince you to purchase when the equipment is a piece of crap.
They also offer contests, which help you improve and get noticed by the photography community.

#5 – PhotoWhoa
Unlike other blogs, I like PhotoWhoa as it is real and discusses the struggles and successes of running a photography business. They offer tips and strategies and in-depth interviews with photographers around the world who work in various genres, so it’s not all wedding or not all portraits. It’s got a bit of everything for everyone.
