While NFT art has been covered a lot, NFT photography has snuck under the zeitgeist radar, but it's one of the fastest and most respected uses of non-fungible tokens. New and seasoned photographers are finding fresh places to sell their work as NFTs, on NFT markets and in galleries that support NFTs.

So, what are NFTs? Put simply, non-fungible tokens are a way to record a digital file into a blockchain where it can't be deleted, edited or corrupted. The data held by the NFT can be viewed, tracked and traced, ensuring ownership of the digital file.
