Beyond the Feed: Rethinking Social Media's Role in Photography


In today's digital age, social media platforms have become ubiquitous tools for photographers to showcase their work, connect with potential clients, and engage with a broader audience. From Instagram to Facebook and beyond, these platforms offer instant access to a global community of fellow photographers, enthusiasts, and clients. They provide an invaluable space for sharing portfolios, behind-the-scenes glimpses, and personal insights, fostering connections and collaborations that transcend geographical boundaries.


Social media for photographers

However, amidst the allure of likes, follows, and shares, many photographers are grappling with the overwhelming demands and pressures of maintaining a presence on social media. The constant need to curate a polished feed, keep up with ever-changing algorithms, and navigate the pitfalls of comparison culture can take a toll on creativity and mental well-being. As such, some photographers, myself included, are beginning to question the true value of these platforms and contemplate stepping away in search of more authentic and meaningful ways to engage with their craft and audience.
