On April 26th, I started a photography blog project asking readers to submit their photography-related websites to me for inclusion in this article. With this being my first attempt at a blog project, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I figured I would get around 20 responses, and I was hoping for 30.

I was overwhelmed at the response as the number of site submissions reached 59! Two of those are mine, but that’s still pretty good! A big THANK YOU to everybody who helped spread the word and promote the project. I split the submissions into three groups: blogs about photography, photoblogs, and galleries. There are 23 blogs about photography, which include mostly written works on the topics of photography. There are 15 photoblogs, which include “picture-only” type of posts. And there are 21 galleries and portfolios. In addition to including these sites in this list, I’ve added any feeds to my feed reader so I can continue reading.

I hope I haven’t mis-categorized anyone’s site, screwed up the link, misspelled a name, or anything else along those lines. There were also a couple of sites that walked the line between some of the categories, so I hope I got them mostly right. I did my best to keep the list up to date, double check against the submission emails, and verify the links. But if there are any mistakes, please let me know so I can fix it before sending out the list to the participants.

And now, without further ado, I present the 59 best photography sites on the Internet.

very cool, Brian :) I’ll have to check out all of the other sites and will probably add all of them to my feed reader as well because I always find the work of others very inspiring.

There really are a lot of good reads in there, and the photoblogs and galleries are very cool.

May 4, 2007 8:35 am

Great list! Thanks for the time and effort you dedicated to this project. :)

Wow, this is great! Thanks for your hard work on this!

May 4, 2007 10:19 am

All I can say is WOW – what an impressive list!
Brian, you’re the Problogger of Photography Blogs, did you know that?

May 4, 2007 11:40 am

Great list and thanks for doing this. I’m looking forward to explore as many of these sites as possible.

May 4, 2007 11:49 am

Thank you for the comments everybody! And thank you again to all the folks who participated. Also, I’ll be emailing out the list tonight, but those who participated are welcome to grab it right off the site or from the source code.

Vivien — Thanks for the comment and the digg. The Problogger of Photography Blogs, huh? I don’t know if I’d go quite that far just yet, but it sure has a nice ring to it. I also might have to wrestle Darren Rowse for that title since he IS the Problogger and he DOES have a couple of photography blogs.

May 4, 2007 11:45 am

Just to re-iterate what others have said, an exellent list. Quite a few on there I’ve haven’t seen before so looking forward to paying a visit to them.

May 4, 2007 1:50 pm

Brian, I’m lovin’ this list. I’ve found several new blogs. Great job!

May 4, 2007 9:31 pm

Hey Brian,

I’ve been following your blog after is spotted all your submissions at http://www.photographyvoter.com. You’ve got some interesting thoughts down here. The list is quite impressive. Goes to show the number of readers you have!

Congratulations on this one. I’m looking forward to watching your blog develop.

Cheers!

I noticed that several people have reposted the list and I have benefitted from more traffic to my blog as a result, so I have followed suit and shared the link-love around.

Thanks for compiling the list.

Impressive list! Check out my site for a look at how a very limited topic/place can be explored.
