It seems like more and more newspapers are launching photoblogs on their websites. It’s an awesome idea, since each of them has a constant stream of high quality work pouring in from their photojournalists. Keeping up with these photoblogs is great for both getting your daily dose of photographic inspiration, and for keeping up with the current events happening around the world.
Here are some top-notch newspaper photoblogs you can follow:
#1. Boston Globe: The Big Picture
The Big Picture is a photo blog for the Boston Globe/boston.com, entries are posted every Monday, Wednesday and Friday by Alan Taylor. Inspired by publications like Life Magazine (of old), National Geographic, and online experiences like MSNBC.com’s Picture Stories galleries and Brian Storm’s MediaStorm, The Big Picture is intended to highlight high-quality, amazing imagery – with a focus on current events, lesser-known stories and, well, just about anything that comes across the wire that looks really interesting.
#2: Sacramento Bee: The Frame
A photo blog by the Sacramento Bee multimedia staff.
#3: New York Times: Lens
Lens is the photojournalism blog of The New York Times, presenting the finest and most interesting visual and multimedia reporting — photographs, videos and slide shows. A showcase for Times photographers, it also seeks to highlight the best work of other newspapers, magazines and news and picture agencies; in print, in books, in galleries, in museums and on the Web.
#4: Wall Street Journal: Photo Journal
#5: Denver Post: Captured
#6: St. Petersburg Times: All Eyes
#7: Austin American-Statesman: Collective Vision
Welcome to Collective Vision, your opportunity to get a little closer to the Statesman photographers whose work you’ve admired throughout the years. Here you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at some of our favorite images and some photos we were unable to fit onto the pages of the Statesman. You’ll get insight into how the photographers practice their craft and thoughts from the photojournalists who create the stunning images and videos. We hope you enjoy this inside look, and we welcome your comments.
