Tumblr has become one of the most popular in social media today. With its sleek designs and cool themes, it has attracted many photographers who wish to share their photos. It’s easy to interact with fellow photographers on Tumblr; all you have to do is follow them and you’ll be updated every time they upload new posts. I wasn’t a fan of Tumblr before, but as I got used to the interface, I found myself hooked on it. I’ve been following talented  photographers around the world. Their works serve as inspiration and motivation for me to continue my passion in photography.

I believe that many professionals and amateurs are also looking for other photographers to look up to. That’s why I’ve made a list of 10 inspirational Tumblr blogs for you to follow.
