If you ask us what we care most about, it’s one thing: helping you effortlessly create visual stories.
We believe in the power of visual storytelling. In fact, it’s something that touches every part of who we are — from how we build our product, to the over 80,000 photographers and 700+ brands in our community who celebrate visual media alongside us.
That’s why we’ve created The List.
For the first time ever, we’ve assembled an exclusive list of the top photographers on PhotoShelter. This is our way of recognizing visual storytellers producing exceptional work, with no signs of stopping. Take a look.
These 90 finalists were selected out of those who applied in our 80,000+ community who use PhotoShelter to showcase, store, deliver or sell their images. The List spans across 18 categories, including photojournalism, food, lifestyle, travel and sports.
A panel of judges, including Melissa Lyttle of the National Press Photographers Association, Alison Zavos of Feature Shoot, Clinton Cargill of Bloomberg Businessweek, Brian Cason of Moment, and Kari Anderson of Glasshouse Assignment, helped select photographers who applied for The List back in Fall 2017. Their decisions were based on three pieces of criteria: a superior portfolio, excellent photography, and a convincing pitch to potential clients.
Connecting Photographers to Forward-Thinking Brands
We believe that photographers and brands should work hand-in-hand to tell important and inspiring stories. That’s why we’ll be connecting winners of The List with the 700+ innovative brand storytellers in our Libris community, including thousands of creative directors, marketers and social media managers.
These creatives and marketers will receive an in-depth lookbook featuring all 90 finalists and a snapshot of their work. It’s our hope that brands will be as in awe as we are, and connect with PhotoShelter photographers directly.
All photographers will also be featured on PhotoShelter’s Instagram account throughout 2018 — just another way for you to get inspired by their work.
Congrats to all the finalists. We can’t wait to see what story you’ll tell next.
