I've found that it's sometimes difficult to find good photographers and other photography related content. It just seems that our niche is not as highly publicized as things like marketing, software, or other Internet-related topics. So I decided to try out the StumbleUpon! toolbar to see what it would do for me.
It's quick to register and install, and you can be stumbling across the Internet in no time at all. The toolbar lets you stumble onto semi-random sites within your categories of choice. I've subscribed to several categories including photography, arts, and fine-arts (plus a few others not related to photography). So I tried stumbling just inside the Photography category to see what would pop up. Within 10 or 20 stumbles, I found: several great photographers I hadn't seen before, lots of great photos, some cool photo contests, and miscellaneous good information. Here are a few of the photographers I came across:
- Scott Stulberg
- Benjamin Krain
- Steve McCurry
- James Nachtwey
If photography isn't your only passion, there are a ton of other categories to choose from. What a great way to burn some time on the Internet.
