If you’re a photographer in 2020 – the age of social media – and you still haven’t joined any photography Facebook groups we have a valid question for you: what are you waiting for?
Facebook groups for photographers are amazing for a number of reasons:
- They are the best way to connect with other photographers and build a strong community of likeminded creatives. Which is especially important for those of you who are just kicking off your photographic career.
- They are packed with useful information and insights from people from all around the world. These are knowledgable industry professionals willing to share their ideas and recommendations with you. It’s one of those cases when you get free (and very valuable) cheese without getting into the mousetrap.
You can find Facebook groups dedicated to any aspect of your photography business: from marketing, pricing, and legal stuff, to SEO, lighting, and even your Flothemes website 🙂 In this post, we’ve gathered 20+ best photography related groups to join in 2020. Check them out and let us know which ones you enjoy the most.
