If you are a photographer who wants to have a presence in the online space, it is essential first of all to find the best solution to “be found”, and this is where photography hashtags comes in .

Many times I talk to very determined and convinced photographers, often even professionals, who seem to live in the stone age. They live in a fantasy world with the illusion that people (and therefore also potential customers) happen – as if by magic – on their website or on their social profiles simply because “they are good”.

And for the same reason they also get pissed off like when perhaps they see a colleague / competitor, perhaps technically and artistically less good than them, getting a great social response instead.

The error is almost always the same: in a world where everything revolves around the search engines and keywords, many photographers seem to overlook the fact that we must ensure that people “find” pictures to appreciate the quality. They have to find your portfolio FIRST.

For this reason it is very important to insert, every time you publish a photo, one or more hashtags for the photograph together with the description of the photo.

What Are Photography Hashtags?

The Hashtag is nothing more than a word that identifies a certain category (technically “keyword”) preceded by the symbol “#” .

The hashtag allows the various search engines, and the web in general, to understand that it is a keyword, a category in fact, and then  catalog your photo to show it to those looking for exactly that keyword.

I’ll give you an example: Let’s say you post a photo on Instagram that represents zoo photography. If you match the photo hashtags #zoo #photography (they can be more than one) in the description, it will be easier for search engines to catalog your photos on those two keywords.

When a person searches for images by selecting the #zoo category , your photo is almost certainly going to pop out among the many others.

The Importance Of Instagram

Earlier I mentioned the social network Instagram, and it wasn’t by chance. For photographers, Instagram is becoming the ideal and most interesting social network.

Instagram is progressively beating the supremacy of Facebook itself (but don’t worry, as much Instagram is owned by Facebook) and for photographers it’s great news because it is based on just photos.

Photos are the centerpiece on which Instagram is based. Photos are what people who use this social network are looking for.
Hashtags are the tool that Instagram uses to catalog images.
But it  does not end on instagram alone. Hashtags are so important and functional that they are also used on Twitter, Facebook and many other online tools.
Hashtags have become so efficient and important that not using them is tantamount to cutting your own legs, or at least reducing the likelihood that your images will be seen by people who “search” for our types of images.

Which Photography Hashtags Should You Use?

Ok, now that you understand the importance of photography hashtags, it’s time to get creative with it.

You can come up with original keywords (hashtags for like), or popular hashtags. Inventing original photography hashtags is tempting but the best strategy is to position yourself well on some generic category, or among the most sought after.

It makes no sense to use a hashtag that is perhaps only sought after by 100-200 people per month. Much better to use a Hashtag sought by 1000 or 2000 people per month!

For this reason, below, is a list the best hashtags to match your photos that you will post from today on the web. How  Do You Use Photography Hashtags For Instagram?

What you have to do is very simple: when you post a photo (on Instagram for example), just enter a short description and then add the Hashtags that categorize and identify it at the end.

There is no point in putting photo Hashtags at random. In fact, you may be tempted to use the hashtag  #love just because it is the most sought after and used in the world.

But there is no point in doing it. If someone realizes that “your” photos appear in their searches, which do not have anything to do with the search key, it is likely that they will then block you so as not to see your materials anymore.

Search for the most suitable series for you, copy and paste them on the description of your image .

Conclusion
Obviously it is useless to use photography hashtags if you have basic photos that are of low quality, It is important to have a good portfolio first, so that when people find you, they can reach out to you for jobs.
Good content is always the key
