21 Blogging Ideas for Photographers: Holden Beach Photographer

Last night I met with a fabulous group of women for our first Tuesday’s Together (I will share more about later this week…you wont want to miss it) This group of ladies are all creatives…they are shaking their world and making a difference as they strive to push community instead of competition.  We gathered and talked about Tools of the Trade that we can all use in our business, but we also talked quite a bit about blogging.

I will confess, blogging for me is hard, its something that I know I need to do, it something that I do because it helps me connect with my readers, but there are times, that I have these beautiful images to share, but I’m at a loss for what to say (my husband can’t believe that) but it’s true.

So I wanted to share 21 blogging ideas for photographers to jump start you if you get stuck blogging!

  1. Why you became a Photographer:  Get personal, share your story, what were the events that led up to why you do what you do.  If there is an image that just confirmed to you that you needed to enter this crazy industry, etc.
  2. Share a peek into your office:  What are the tools you use to do what you do (photoshop, lightroom, iMac, pro select, blog stomp etc) and why.  People want to know.
  3. How you find locations:  Share a bit about why locations are important and how you find the ones you have
  4. Share some time saving tips that you do:  This can help anyone!  People love tips
  5. Feature a vendor that you love:  Share why you love them, why your clients should love them and make sure to link to them….like I did here
  6. Great photo gift ideas: This is great for November or close to a holiday.
  7. A day in the life of:  Lets face it, so many people are nosey…they want to know what you do and how you do it, don’t be afraid to document it and share
  8. Your loves: Share 5 things that you LOVE, your clients want to get to know you. These don’t have to be photography related, just something that you love
  9. Your favorite apps:  This is always a hit, there are so many apps out there…and readers always love reading more about apps that they can download for fun or work that will make their life better.
  10. A step by step edit of an image:  If you have an image that you love your editing process…make sure you save the image as you go and then share that.
  11. Feature a family’s story:  Get permission from a family to “tell their story”  ….pick a client that had a particular reason to do a photo session with you…and then share it!
  12. What to wear ideas for a specific season:  Readers always love this…for me its the number one question I get asked after the client books, so having some ideas for them really helps!  I did this here
  13. Wall Display ideas:  Create 5 -7 different wall displays (for canvas or prints) and share them!
  14. Feature a favorite product of yours:  I love sharing my products because they are beautiful and the best the industry offers.  Take some pictures of an album or a canvas and share it.
  15. What is your favorite lens:  They look to you as an expert and want to know what you think is best and what love about it!
  16. Difference in printing labs:  Order a print from 4 labs (consumer and then 3 professional) and show the difference and why you use who you use.
  17. How you back up your images:  This is another BIG question that I get…how do you back up your images.  Share this.  Your clients want to know!
  18. List the MUST HAVES that you bring to a shoot:  I always have water, chapstick etc…share these things and why
  19. Your favorite 5 industry quotes:  quotes are huge these days…with social media…share your top 5 and why you love them
  20. Share something that you have learned from a shoot:  lets face it, we are always learning, share what you are learning
  21. Give 3 tips that will change their pictures immediately

So if you use any of these tips, please share with me…I’d love to read them!

I met the following family on a rainy day at Holden beach…this mom was part of our pre-booking for our Holden Beach Pictures and I’m always amazed that even when clients book early in the spring, how quickly the sessions come!   We rain held off and we were able to capture some awesome pictures of her family!  Look at these two beautiful children…they are just simply gorgeous …and their eyes!  WOW!
