Established in May of 2009, PetaPixel is a leading blog covering the wonderful world of photography. We love photography, and we want to see others love it too. Our goal is to inform, educate, and inspire in all things photography-related.

In case you didn’t know, the “peta” in PetaPixel is the prefix that denotes 1015, just as the “mega” in megapixel denotes 106.
