Best Photo Blogs – Round 6

best-photo-blogs_6I want to thank everybody who has helped me so far to narrow down all those eminent blogs which in the first were suggested by many of you readers as best photo blogs. It almost feels like a work of Sisyphus with so many excellent photo blogs out there. But slowly by slowly – and really by the help of you my dear readers – we are able to narrow down the list to a manageable amount. It means many of all these fantastic will not make it to the final list of best photo blogs, but as I have stated before, it’s not much help in having a reference site with around 500 blogs, as good as they all might be. So again, I hope to narrow down the amount of blogs in the final showcase to around 50. Only then can this page become a real reference for anyone looking for good blogs.

If you haven’t already looked up the previous presented blogs you can find them here. Round 1, round 2, round 3, round 4 and round 5.

But over to this round: Here are all the excellent photo blogs I want you to help me narrow down this time. As the previous rounds you have three votes to cast among the rounds 15 blogs.

      1. Thank you!!! But still I am surprised; there are so many excellent photographers out there!!! But you made my day! Still have to work hard to get there where I want to be… 😉
        Greetings from a wonderful village somewhere in nowhere in South Africa,


  1. It is so so hard to choose! Thank you very much for your efforts by doing this, Otto. Very inspiring! Now I have more blogs to follow in which I could learn from. 🙂

    Thank you, Otto! 🙂

  2. I was tempted to vote for Steve McCurry’s blog, but he already has such a huge following and he’s a pro. So I opted to vote for some lesser known, but equally delicious entries. Great selections you’ve offered here. I’ve added some to follow… as if I needed to spend even more time looking at all these marvelous sites. 🙂

  3. Oh My Gosh, Otto, this was another challenging choice! It was really difficult to narrow it down to just three. Sooo much creative talent out there.

  4. I am so surprised to see my blog on the list. Thank you, Otto! I don’t know who nominated me, but feel honored they did because you have some amazing photographers on these lists. I’m off to look at some of the others so I can vote, and thank you again for all the work you’re doing to put together a list.

  5. Another lovely set of blogs Otto, thanks! I love both Steve McCurry and William Neill but have them in another category entirely 🙂 Hadn’t seen JDT before and think it’s wonderful so posted my vote for his site .

  6. I took some time, but now I have seen all the entries. What a list, so many great photographers!
    I’m amazed to see Steve McCurry among the contestants. I’d expect him to be in a different league. And then again not. He’s iconic, so why not. I follow him, like more than twenty thousands others. I like his moody images very much, but he’s not getting my vote this time.
    In retrospect, viewing all the entries during 6 rounds, it’s interesting to see how the photographers present their work, the blog appearance, the theme the select etc. Not all of them are “home” yet, but that’s only my opinion, I see what I like.
    Thanks a lot for taking the time for this, Otto! It’s a very educating trip to follow you. 🙂

    1. I can only return your compliments; thank you for taking your time with the blogs. And I follow your argument – and agree with you in that there are some really great blogs among the presented and some not quite home, yet, as you say. Thanks for your thoughts, Dina.

  7. Otto, I’ve been following jdtphotography for several years and own three of his prints. One of which James brought to our B&B when friends and I were in Seaford September 2013. Was delighted to see that he made one of your lists, and of course I voted.
    Again, I’m in deep admiration of your essays on creativity which I’ve stated before…cross over from photography into the realm of other creative efforts. And which…I take seriously…and print out for reference. Thank you so much. Raye

  8. Hello Otto,
    Very nice idea and great to find some photo-blogs that I didnt know of!
    I do have a couple of points up for discussion:
    1. Don´t you think it´s more about popularity than quality? Wouldnt you be better off picking ones out of all the suggestions? for example Steve McCurry is a real pro in what he does and hardly comparable to most other street photographers in my opinion!?
    2. Doesnt the landscape of photoblogs keep changing all the time? So after your references come out, ones will evolve, new great ones arrive and others devaluate?

    well, very much appreciate you putting this all together and enjoying the choices very much, but in general it´s so subjective and I think your great eye for photography will put together a great reference-list on your own!

    Greetings, Ron.

    1. Thanks for the nice words, Ron. And, yes, you are right in that the blog sphere is changing all the times. So a list of best of or whatever will indeed be outdated after a while. That is just the world of blogging. I have not decided how to approach this challenge, yet. Otherwise what constitutes for a good or blog will of course be very subjective. And I am fine with that. So it’s more about popularity than quality then? I think it’s probably a combination. Of course I could put together a list of my own, but I hope a reference site with photo blogs will have more general value if I am not alone about picking the blogs. Thanks for bringing in this discussion which I think is a important one, and I am very responsive to arguments or thoughts one way or another.

      1. ´Of course I could put together a list of my own, but I hope a reference site with photo blogs will have more general value if I am not alone about picking the blogs.´
        Very good pointI I am just always a bit scary these selections turn out into people trying to get as many people to vote for them and that wouldnt make it a good reference in my opinion.
        But very happy to see all the selections unknown to me, thanks again and keep up the great work
        Greetings, Ron.
