About DIYPhotography

Welcome to DIYPhotography.net

DIY Photography (or DIYP for short) started in 2006 as a place for gear lusting photographers (hence the name), it has quickly evolved into a place of inspiration, education, gear chat and a place for photographers to hang out.

With a strong focus on educational content, we feature some of the best and most inspiring photography found worldwide, exciting behind the scenes footage, gear reviews and the best photography tutorials to be found on the web.
