Whats important in a photography blog?

I have been spending a lot of time the last month in reworking my studios blog and brand. I have had a blog for my studio for many years now and find it interesting how it has evolved. Starting out as something I just though would be fun since I am somewhat of a techie/artist and really didn’t think anything of it in terms of helping my business for the first few years. Then I noticed my clients would mention shoots or stories I had on my blog and realized they are following my blog on a regular basis. I saw the impact that it had on my business and started to work on the overall look of it to match the look of my website. It’s been through a few major revisions since then and the next revision will be the biggest change from a design standpoint that I have had. I am getting excited about it and with blogs on my mind wanted to throw out the question to everyone, what is the most important to you with your photography blog? If you have a current blog now what are some of the most important features about the blog that made you choose it? And for those of you without a blog check out some of our reader blogs from this post: Share your Photography blog.

  1. I guess the photo blog should be fast too. As in the website should load quickly, else people just tend to move away.

  2. That’s a great comment, I used to post 20+ images from a wedding on my blog and now try and keep it to 5-7 and only show the last 5 posts. Otherwise I agree you can loose people fast!

  3. Thanks for this post. As someone who’s literally just begun, I’ll try and remember these things. 🙂
