I don’t know about you, but I love photography documentaries. There’s just such a wealth of knowledge you can learn from those who have come before you. I’ve compiled this list, in no particular order, in an effort to help inspire you as a photographer, and help you to learn more about the craft. There’s some truly fantastic artists featured in this list, and a couple not so fantastic (scroll to the bottom).
