Does knowledge trump gear...
to be successful at photography?

If you think YES, we're off to a great start!

Our mission and most important goal is to help photographers take that next step or leap forward, to remain inspired, and have the desire to get out as often as they can with their camera.
Alex Schult
Founder & CEO of

We are here to clear the misconceptions that what you need to succeed at photography is a huge savings account to burn through, or the latest and greatest camera gear. If you have the desire to succeed at photography, whether your goals are simple or complex. When you knock on the door of success, don’t be surprised that it's practice and desire that answers.
It's far too common for photographers to lose momentum and interest in photography. Most of the time it's because they weren't able to connect the dots to get over that 'hump' or simply didn't know where to point their compass.

And that my friend is what we do: We connect the dots so you don't need to and point you in the right direction. Over the years we have listened to what photographers like you desired from photography, feared about it, the challenges, and the questions you had.

PhotographyTalk is much more than massive photography community. What you see today on PhotographyTalk isn't the result of anything random. The resources you find on this site, are the result of listening to what's most important to YOU.

"Our purpose is to serve all photographers from beginners to professionals, to provide a community of like-minded peers, insightful resources and create tools that will act as your compass in your photographic journey."

We educate, inspire and connect photographers… and we do it well:

"I love all the tips, it opens up the mind and makes you think outside the box!"
