Field Report:

The Non-Glamorous Side of Photography

Professional Photography Industry Website Roll Call!!

This blog was intended to be a one-stop resource for professional photography industry websites and information. I already have a fairly large list of sites on the side bar including the obvious ones like A Photo Editor, John Harrington, etc… but by no means am I aware of every reputable site out there. If you have more professional photography related sites that you think should be listed on this site, then feel free to post them in the comments. I’ll take a look at any site submitted and add onto the sidebar the ones that I feel are relevant. Sites that add to the collective knowledge are given first priority. Microstock sites need not apply. Hopefully that doesn’t weed everyone else out…

Thank you.

  1. lol. Wow. Free links and no one is putting them up! I would think from the several thousand monthly readers, there would be some interest.

  2. Maybe everyone is scared/nervous of your potential reviews? 🙂

  3. Nice theory Taylor. Perhaps I should change the language since a literal “review” wasn’t what I intended to mean. I meant just evaluate it for myself before adding the link.

  4. Richard – I think this is a great idea! Here is one for you. Check out PhotoSource International at They have been in business for a very long time and provide a lot of great information.

    I have quite a few on the sidebar of my Photo Blog as well. You can check them out at You might find something else that interests you.

  5. Richard,

    I’ve already thought you’ve put together a hugely comprehensive list, and obviously put in a significant amount of time and effort on what you’ve got. Personally, I’ve never liked the photographers index stock price calculator as it’s too limited. The only thing that jumps to my mind is the ASPP and PACA, along with

    Cheers & Hope the holidays are treating you well thus far.

  6. Thanks Gary. Good stuff, exactly what I was looking for. Funny that I mentioned the UsePlus stuff in the recent blog post but didn’t occur to add a site link to it.

    As for the Photographer’s Index calculator, I agree. Though it is an easy resource to point out to people because it doesn’t require you to register for an account first unlike the agency calculators.

  7. Thanks Sherri. What a coincidence. I was actually thinking of photosource myself as I was writing this blog post.

  9. Some really excellent Lightroom tutorials Steve. I added your link under Photographer Resources. I’ll have to read more in-depth when I get a chance.

  10. Photographer Harry Nowell forwarded me a link to his newsletters:

    Some good stuff and I will add it to the Photographer Resources column.

  11. Hi Richard, great idea and I look forward to perhaps reading a follow up post featuring the new sites you’ve chosen.

    If I may, I’d like to suggest my own blog: I’m a long-time amateur photographer who has decided to dive in and go pro. I’m writing about what I learn about photography and turning it into a business. I hope it will be a resource for all photographers, and especially those turning pro.

    Thank you for the opportunity!

  13. Hi Richard,

    I’d like to suggest my own photography blog Magical Places Fine Art. It’s a genuine resource for any aspiring or indeed most professional photographers, with lots of interviews with top fine art, travel and documentary photographers.

    Regards, Andrew
