Photographers are a social bunch. We like to talk to each other, to get each other’s opinions and critiques, to ask each other questions.

Of course, that all involves sharing images. But it mostly involves a lot of talk.




Photo Dojo is a publication focused on sharing great articles written by talented photographers around the world. We publish anything from tutorials and gear discussion to photo essays and philosophical articles.
