With the proper camera and vision, photography can make your life much better. Below are just a few of the many benefits of developing a love of photography.
1. Photography sponsor Immortal

2. Photography caters the Journey of life
From your childhood pictures to your child’s pictures to your grandchild’s pictures. From first smiles to first steps to first dates, life can be documented and preserved. Photography captures personal communication that would otherwise be lost forever.
3. Photography decompress the stress.
Go ahead. Take your blood pressure before and after spending just 30 minutes focusing on getting that perfect picture. You’ll be amazed at the difference.
Then, for better overall health, just rinse and repeat often. It’s okay. I promise the problem won’t go away. It’ll still be there when you’re ready to start worrying again.
4. Photography inspires your imagination
My friend is a professional photographer and her creativity while taking photographs of the kids is what moved her (slowly) toward a career as a photographer. She loves finding and replicating such creative poses as a newborn in a net seemingly hanging from the sky. She also loves taking a couple and creating romantic ways for the shared love to be shown.
It has inspired my own creativity, as I help her come up with new ideas. For instance, one day I was walking on a road with plenty of random cracks in it. The sun was behind me casting my shadow forward. We were talking on the phone about how to capture this one particular couple and the strength of their union and I mentioned the cracks all around them (symbolizing life in general). However, when it came to their shadows, they were solid. In this way it showed the strength of the union as well as how life couldn’t “crack” them.
5. Photography can be choose as a career ; if that person carry a passion towards it.
There are people who make a living being a photographer. Imagine, if you will, that every picture you’ve ever seen, whether it’s on a billboard, in a magazine, or on TV, was snapped by someone. There are schools, classes, books, and websites where you could learn much more than I could ever tell you.
6. Photography is a wonderful, safe, and natural self-esteem booster
7. Photography brings you closer to your natural spirituality.
Look around at the wonders of nature. Whether you believe in God or not, you can’t help but feel a stirring at the beauty surrounding you. You simply can’t help but understand how very small you are while you are realizing how very vast everything else is.
8. Photography can tell you those things; where naked eye cant imagine.
When I look at something I can’t possibly take in every aspect that is within my vision.
All of these aspects are much more evident in a picture, and I can concentrate on the overall view while knowing that the individual components will not be lost forever.
9. Photography holds Old and New Memories
Think of the wife or husband who has lost a spouse. Or the child who lost a parent. With pictures not only can they have no fear of forgetting their loved one’s face but can remember exactly what was going on when that picture was snapped, cementing the memory forever.
These are only a few of the many, many benefits of photography. They are so many, it would be impossible to fit them into one article. What’s your favorite benefit of photography?
