80 Photographers + 36 Networks = 257 Connections

We had a great response to the mini-project I announced last week on the topic of social networking and social photography. It’s always great to follow and connect with people of similar interests on the social networks, and as photographers we all have a lot in common. Personally, I’m far more included to accept contact with people on these networks if I know they’re a photographer — and from what I can tell, most of the links you guys provided were totally on-topic.

I was really amazed at how many different networks we’re a part of — some that I hadn’t even heard of before. All of the links left in the comments of the project post are listed below, separated by the network/website (most popular first) and listed in the order that they were received. If you’re part of these networks, check out these fellow photographers. And if you’re not a part of these networks, now is a good time to get started!

Enjoy the links folks, and go make some friends! (and let me know if I’ve messed up any of the links or left any out).

Five More Fantastic Flickr Photographers

Some time ago, I wrote an article titled “Five Fantastic Flickr Photographers“. The five photographers featured were contacts of mine whose work I really appreciated. Since that time, I’ve encountered many more great photographers on Flickr, particularly those involved with the Epic Edits Flickr Group.

Week after week, as I go through our group pool, I encounter amazing photos from a select few photographers. Without even looking at the photo details, I know who it’s from and I know that I love it. But then again, these are folks that I’ve been following long before the formation of our Flickr group. So pay these artists a visit, add them as a contact, and let them know that their work is appreciated.

Mathias Pastwa

MATHIAS PASTWA

- Germany

100 possible ways don't go to work - that's one the-tube

I’ve been following Mathias for quite some time — I was following him on Zooomr before he even jumped over to Flickr. His work is absolutely captivating, often appearing as though it’s from a different world. He is well known for his eye-catching use of color and form via industrial landscapes. But he’s also well versed in street photography, urban & rural landscapes, abstracts, and many more genres. Mathias also has a way with film that sets him apart from the crowd. In addition to recently joining the Fine Art Photoblog, Mathias has a portfolio website filled with some of his best works.

Gregor Winter

GREGOR WINTER

- Germany

untitled subway moment

Gregor gives the impression that he’s a weathered street photographer from the mid-century past. His photos have a very unique and identifiable style, and they are a true testament to his abilities as an artists. Though Gregor doesn’t post a large quantity of photos, when he does post a photo it’s an instant favorite of mine — well thought out, well executed, and well presented. Having dabbled with street photography myself, I know just how difficult it can be to produce impressive photos such as Gregor’s.

Javier Yanes

JAVIER YANES

- Spain

family; Sailing Dreams Hi...Summer

Javi has one of the most unique and memorable styles. You can typically spot his work by his signature green-cast images — which suit his composition style well. Javier’s eye for composition is his strongest point; creating photos that are simple and interesting to look at. What really amazes me is that you can dig as deep as you’d like into his archives, and you won’t find anything of lesser quality or intrigue. If you do so, you’ll also notice that he’s done a fair amount of travel to some very interesting places. Oh… and he tends to show up underwater quite often — which is another really cool aspect of his work.

Victor Bezrukov

VICTOR BEZRUKOV

- Isreal

wooot on the swing

Victor’s photos come across as being very bold and intentional. With his images typically revolving around human subjects, he manages to capture personal and interesting features of his subjects. Victor’s portrait work is quite stunning, mainly because of the intimacy found in each photo. He also has a unique talent for capturing “portraits” of features other than the face — feet and hands in particular. And the color choice for most of his work — outstanding black and white, of course.

Tom Webb

TOM WEBB

- Australia

The viewing of creation. A ghostly self portrait with the unexpected bonus of a light trail.

Tom is fast becoming something of a “Flickr Legend” due to his amazing social interactions and for his work with film photography. Many of you probably only know him as “the_wolf_brigade” — and those who do know him understand what I’m talking about. His work with film has been a personal inspiration to me. Not only is Tom very good and very capable with film, he’s also very open to sharing that experience with anyone who asks. Lately, he’s been experimenting with long exposures and even a few double exposures. If Tom keeps going at film the way he has, he’ll be a force to reckon with in the very near future. You can also keep up with Tom on his photography blog: The Mediation of Life

Honorable Mentions

In addition to the five I’ve chosen to highlight, I wanted to pick out another five photographers from the Epic Edits Flickr Group who often catch my eye. It was actually a very difficult decision to choose the top five from all ten of these photographers.

Be sure to check out all these great photographers, add them as a friend, star their photos, leave comments on their work, let them know they are appreciated. Following the work of others is a great way to improve your own photography and it’s quite inspirational.

Top Photos From 43 Portfolios

On May 19, I announced that the Fine Art Photoblog was accepting portfolios to fill two new spots. In just two weeks, we had 43 outstanding portfolios come through: a few familiar names, and many new ones. This was a larger response than I had expected, and I have to admit that I’m wishing there were fewer portfolios to review!

Now the seven of us currently involved with the photoblog have the daunting task of selecting only two artists to potentially join us. We’ll be going through rounds of narrowing the field, defending our favorites, and coming to agreements. We take this task very seriously and it’s not something we’re prepared to rush in any way. So if you are one of the 43 who submitted a portfolio, please be patient while we work through this.

In the meantime, I wanted everybody to get some of the spotlight because I found this group of portfolios to be particularly inspiring. I’ve selected one photo (my own personal favorite) from each portfolio to be displayed as a sample. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. The display order is based on the order that the portfolios were received.

The photos below are the sole property of the artist. They maintain fully copyright to their images, so please don’t use them without permission.

UPDATE: Aw crud… it turns out we had 44 portfolio entries. One from Dawn Armfield didn’t go through with the entry form. Sorry Dawn! We got you in there now.
