The popularity of fashion blogs has created an additional need for fashion images. Some fashion blogs have a huge following, sometimes hundreds of thousands of followers. Without amazing photos, it’s doubtful that a fashion blog would succeed.
And providing images for a successful blog can offer a photographer some great business opportunities. Selling pictures to a popular fashion blog can garner exposure and followers while earning money. It’s also an excellent way to build a portfolio. While the photographer makes up one element of a blog, another is the fashion enthusiast who uses a blog’s images to stay abreast of the latest trends.
Then there’s the fashion-forward photographer who writes and photographs their own fashion blog, using their own photography to build a community of followers. As you can see, photography benefits the fashion industry through blogs. It creates a win-win for the blogger, follower, and photographer.
