31. HELP PEOPLE SEE THE BEAUTY IN THEMSELVES

It’s a funny thing. A lot of people I know think they aren’t photogenic. And a lot of photographers I know believe that everyone is beautiful. Photographers (especially the great portrait photographers) know how to see the beauty in someone that might not even see it themselves. To show that to them in the photos is an incredible gift.

32. DOCUMENT HISTORY

The present is the history of the future. You never know when you’ll be right in the middle of a world changing event, and your camera will create the record for generations to come.

33. IT’S REALLY DAMN FUN + EXCITING!!

A lot of these reasons are pretty heavy on the emotion, but photography is also just really damn fun and exciting! Shooting is a blast, and can often get the adrenaline pumping like crazy!!! It’s a trip.

34. CAMERAS ARE MECHANICAL ART

Gears, dials, shutters, lenses—cameras are seriously cool. There are so many types: film, digital, instant, toy, point and shoot, SLR, TLR, rangefinder, medium format, large format to name a few. And a lot are gorgeous machines. It’s a blast to learn more about them, and appreciate what they can do!

35. MAKE OTHERS HAPPY

Photos make people happy. Whether you captured a great portrait, snagged a shot of a special moment, or took a few photos to help a friend’s new business, photography can spread a lot of joy. That’s awesome.

36. BRINGS FAMILIES TOGETHER

Having photos taken as a family can bring you together. The act suggests that you want to remember each other, just because. And the resultant images show the love you share. An excellent reminder of those particularly cranky days.

37. CAPTURE THE PERSONALITY OF YOUR PET

Pets are an important part of your life too! And they all have personalities of their own. Photos let you capture them in all their glory, to share with the whole world!!

38. TAKE BETTER FAMILY PORTRAITS THAN YOU HAD

Maybe you grew up with awkward family photos, and don’t want to put your own progeny through that. Learning to take great photos can help kids actually enjoy the process (it’s true!!).

39. TAKE BETTER PHOTOS FOR YOURSELF

A lot of photography is shared, and that’s awesome. But there’s something to be said for taking great photos just for yourself. No one else sees them, comments on them, or has to like them. It’s rather freeing.

40. CAPTURE RAW EMOTION

People are incredibly interesting. And emotion is a part of that. Seeing how the face changes during a laugh, or how body language reflects mood are all fascinating studies, and photography helps you capture that.
