I get asked all of the time what websites I visit for photography inspiration. What websites have amazing and breathtaking images? Where can one find creative and innovative photographs?
Here are the top 10 websites (in no particular order) that I visit for inspiration:
- Arizona Highways Magazine. This magazine has been internationally known for great photographs for many decades. Ansel Adams was a fairly regular contributor back in the day, and to this day, only the best-of-the-best photographers get featured. Many amazing images can be found on their website, although you have to dig around a little to find many of them.
- 1x.com. This site is a huge collection of great photographs.
- Veer Ideas Tumblr. The most creative and innovative images and illustrations found at Veer's stock photography site are featured here.
- Chase Jarvis Blog. I'm really liking his Emerging Talent series.
- Pictory. Not just great photographs, but the stories behind them, too.
- 500px.com. It's like flickr, but much, much better.
- Photoextract. A "best of" of photographs on Google+. There are some truly amazing images here!
- Earthshots.org. A daily nature and landscape photography contest that often features great images.
- Photography Served. Great photographs from truly talented photographers.
- Ansel Adams. This is a good place to view some of the master's work.
You can create photographs just as amazing as those found in the websites linked above if you have vision.
