India's best photography blogs in 2019

A good number of photographers who have taken up photography as business have a website where they promote themselves. That holds good generally for photographers who have some offline presence, e.g. a shop.

However, not many Indian photographers maintain a blog. Does that mean, photographers do have a website but not a blog? Yes, most photographers' websites have a business front, where they talk of photography services, their rates, portfolios, etc. On the other hand, a photography blog focuses on photography as a subject and passion: it showcases photographs, photo-features and photo-stories, discusses the profession, shares tips, talks about gadgetry and so on. The blog may also sell photographs and photography services, but that comes as a natural offshoot. 

While only some photographers maintain stand-alone blogs, many have their 'blogs' on Instagram and Pinterest,  places buzzing with visual content. Many photographers have tried their hands with photo-sharing sites such as shutterstock, but only some have succeeded as their catalogs have become too crowded. 

The following are among the top photography blogs in India, in English.

There are many bloggers in travel, lifestyle and food niches who post a large number of photographs, but most of them are basically travelers or chefs or fashionistas who also shoot photos. Such blogs have not been included in the list, unless the blogger has proved himself/ herself as a photographer. 
If you maintain a blog on photography or on other subjects but have a great collection of good quality photographs / photography related information on your blog, and your blog does not figure in this list, do write to us at kp.nd.2008@gmail.com.

Indian's best travel blogs in 2019

Travel blogging has taken wings in India, though it started later than in western countries. We now have hundreds of bloggers who regularly travel and showcase their journeys on their blogs. The established ones share travel tips and blogging advice. Many of them have affiliation with travel/ food/ tourism/ culture/ airline industry through which they earn and also sometimes offer discounts to their visitors. The top bloggers in this niche monetize their assets well and are reported to be earning handsomely through travel blogging.

We give here links to top Indian travel blogs. Most of them have found a place in the Directory of Best Indian Blogs, but  we have also included some outstanding blogs that could not be included in the Directory due to some reason (e.g. not being regular of late).
