What is PhotographyTalk?
PhotographyTalk is the world’s number one photography community.
We’ve built our community around a mission to provide all the support and resources you need to develop your skills and grow as a photographer. This includes the opportunity to share your work with the world, inspire others and find inspiration from fellow photographers.
Our main purpose is to help you reach your potential and achieve greatness.
At PhotographyTalk, we believe anyone is capable of taking great photos. But we also realize that not everyone has a lot of time to invest in learning. For that reason, PhotographyTalk provides premier tuition that fast-tracks the acquisition of knowledge and skills. This accelerated learning model means you’ll master the art of taking high-quality photos sooner rather than later.
Our community is all about inspiring one another to dream bigger, do better, and achieve great things with our cameras. Whether you’re a brand-new photographer, grizzled veteran, or somewhere in between, we think you’ll find this the perfect place to discover skills, share, and grow as a photographer.

PhotographyTalk knows me. When I have un-answered questions or struggle with certain areas of photography, they consistently post just what I need to see. The advice and guidelines are always point. It's impossible for me not to learn something new everyday from PhotographyTalk!
I've been behind a camera for over 35 years and trust me, you never stop learning. Thank you PhotographyTalk.
After 25+years in the photography business, mostly on the developing & printing side, my career was ended by the click of a mouse. By the time I got over my bitterness and accepted digital, I was way behind. Photography Talk has been a huge help in allowing me to catch up.
Photographytalk is the photographer's "bible" for advice, guidance, direction, tutorials, tips, and tech.
