In a way, every photographer is a storyteller- capturing images to convey the story they envision, before pressing the shutter button.

Every scene we see is a potential photograph. But it takes mindful effort, and a keen eye for storytelling, to create images that force the viewer to stop and take notice.

This post is collection of 15 such photographs that successfully tell a story by evoking strong emotions in the viewer. We hope that they inspire you on your photography journey. If you’d like to learn how to tell a story with your photographs, take a look at Kent DuFault’s guide on storytelling with photography.
