Great Photo Blogs, Sites, and Apps

Two great photo gallery sites, both leaning towards photojournalism, are available as Apps for iPad and other mobile devices – Reuters Pictures and the Life Magazine Your World in Pictures. Both are updated daily or more. Reuters Pictures includes daily Editor’s Choice and other topical galleries, all on current events and topics of the day. The Life Magazine photo collections include up-to-date galleries, but also offer collections that draw extensively from many years of Life Magazine’s extensive and treasured news photo archive. Both photo sites are also fully accessible from web sites.

Recently, Life published their collection of the best Photo Blogs. While the collection includes a number of sites published by major high-circulation consumer publications – which lean towards photojournalism – there is also a wide variety of other great photo blogs. I haven’t found a single one that I don’t want to spend hours exploring and keep coming back to.
