Sharing is caring!

The one thing that I remember struggling with when I first started my photography business was blogging. So I came up with a list of 57 blogging topics for photographers in different niches to help those of you who are as stuck as I was.

It wasn’t so much the writing that I struggled with, although I wasn’t amazing at that either at the time, but it was actually coming up with blog post ideas that weren’t just sharing my latest shoot that I hated.

I never knew what to write about but I knew that I had to post something, especially in the slower seasons when I wasn’t shooting anything new.

You should use this blogging opportunity to help your clients plan for their session, or answer frequently asked questions in depth.

If you think about it from a different perspective, you can imagine yourself as a prospective client, clicking on the website of a photographer you wanted to book. What would you want to find out from that website beyond the usual pricing/about the photographer/gallery and how to contact them?

If you’re not sure, keep reading. I’ve got you covered.
