Categories & different types of Edinburgh photographers

The different types of Edinburgh photographers are all interconnected. We are a diverse group of people, but we are all connected by our shared love of photography and the city. Through our work, our organizations, and our events, Edinburgh photographers are constantly building relationships with each other. This helps to create a strong community of photographers, and it helps to ensure that photography continues to thrive, and the city continues to be documented through time.

  • The Local photographer: The casual local photographer is content with happy snaps and general views depicting the usual clichéd scenes. The steadfast local, the ones who get it done, there’s nothing they can’t do, they just get stronger and stronger. Whatever it may take their will will never break. Through blood and sweat and tears they’ve made it their mission to capture a dynamic range of outstanding content. Day in, day out, on a quest all over again, Edinburgh as the stage, their they go playing out their part again, sometimes in the spotlight, sometimes in the shadows, giving every ounce of attention to get that next shot that’s going to matter.

  • The Advocate: The advocate photographer is true champion, they depict the city and surroundings in all its glory, never wavering from portraying Edinburgh at its finest, showcasing nothing but the biggest & brightest representations to ensure Edinburgh’s best foot goes forward.

  • The Renegade: The renegade photographer is right rebel, running riot all over the place, hell-bent and keen to expose Edinburgh’s shortcomings. Their agenda thrives on pointing out the failings of a city, anything from failed urban planning to revealing cultural and governance deficiencies at local level.

  • The Blogger: The blogger photographer type goes all out, it's "Everything Edinburgh" a city up for grabs, nothing's off limits for their blog content, anything is fair game.

  • The "Out of Towner": The out of towner type is an infrequent visitor, residents of Scotland who find themselves in town on business or pleasure, they use the opportunity to make the most of their time to bag some worthy shots or capture a reminder of the trip. Of course, there’s also the frequent out-of-towner who’s just as ardent as the steadfast local, they’ve just got to put in a little more travel time.

  • The Touring Tog: The touring tog type refers to the traveller, tourist, and non-residing visitor alike. Unless they are a travel photographer of the purist type, they probably visit Edinburgh with other priorities and undertakings in mind, keen to return home with the best images they can depending on their skill and choice of gear for the trip.

  • The Fine Art Connoisseur: Regardless of origin, quality is on the agenda here. Be it local or visitor the intention in mind here is to capture a classic shot of Edinburgh, one worthy of many a wall.

The varying types of Edinburgh photographers are all important. They document the city around us and portray Edinburgh in contrasting light. By appreciating and understanding the diverse types of Edinburgh photographers, we can better understand them and the city around us.
