I can think of a few reasons:

  • Communication
  • An aid to memory
  • Propaganda
  • Capturing the Beautiful
  • Making money
  • Publicity
  • Artistic expression
  • Documentation
  • Egotism, snobbery, showing off
  • An excuse to be around attractive models or visit lovely places
  • As a way of meeting new and interesting people
  • Furthering knowledge
  • Illustration
  • Enjoying the art of photography


Bolded my personal reasons.
