It happens to the best of us. Running out of ideas for your photographs can be frustrating. When inspiration runs dry, the District is there for you. Whether you are just looking for inspiration or you need to build your skills, we have lots of resources that can help.

Check out a photography book at the library. Browse the 770s for books on technique and collections of pictures from photographers you admire.

Did you know that Zinio has six photography magazines? Digital Photo, Digital Photo Pro, Digital SLR Photography, Outdoor Photographer, Popular Photography, and Shutterbug

Browse all kinds of magazines, in print or digital, and yield great inspiration. Take a break from your usual magazines and check out amazing compositions in Vogue, landscapes in National Geographic or National Geographic Interactive, and photojournalism in Time. Take notes, recording what strikes you about photos you’re drawn to. Armed with your new ideas, you’ll be snapping great works in no time!

And don’t forget that we offer free online courses on photography through Gale Courses.

For in-person courses, Spokane County offers lots of options: the Spokane Camera Club, the City of Spokane Parks and Recreation classes, and the Community Colleges of Spokane Center for Workforce & Continuing Education
