Documentary Photography Community Love List – Get Featured or Published

When I first started my photography journey, I felt a little lonely in the sense that I felt like I had to shoot one way, when my heart was tugging me another way. Since, I’ve found photography communities that I know and love to have been a big support and I know I can attribute part of who I am today as an artist to these communities.

So many times, these Facebook Pages run (which is a ton of hard work I may add!) and offer features for no other reason than to build that community and fuel inspiration. Check out some of the sites I’ve come across.

While we’re on the subject of communities, I challenge you to take part in an effort to be featured. It doesn’t have to be a daunting to-do list task. Putting yourself out there will push your comfort zone and, come on, if your photo is chosen to be featured, it feels pretty damn good!

Disclaimer: This growing list was made up through the years of places I’ve submitted to and/or heard of along my journey or by suggestion of other photographers. This info is accurate to the best of my knowledge from clicking on their sites/page, but may not be 100% accurate and can change at any time. For questions on themes and submissions, you need to contact the community directly. If you know of a community that should be on this list, please email us.
