In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last four years, Twitter is taking over the Internet. It’s more than a website to update your friends on what you’re doing, but rather a place to market products, research trends and find interesting content.
Now if you’re one of the one that’s been saying you don’t understand it, take some time to add some of these photographers and you’ll see what kind of information you could be getting.
This is by no means a “Best Photographers on Twitter list,” but rather a list of people that I think post interesting content, both with their personal work, as well as information that new photographers can learn from.
1. Scott Bourne – (@ScottBourne) – Scott is probably best known on Twitter for giving away photo equipment on a regular basis. His photography is also amazing as well.
2. Jeremy Cowart – (@jeremycowart) – Jeremy has shot such people as Tim Tebow, Imogen Heap, and Brandi Carlile. He’s currently working on a photo essay titled “Voices of Haiti” which showcases some of the people affected by the tragic earthquake.
3. David Hobby – (@strobist) – David is the first photographer I visit when I need a reference on lighting a subject.
4. Trey Ratcliff (@TreyRatcliff) – Trey is the king of HDR photography.
5. Chase Jarvis (@chasejarvis) – Chase has an excellent outgoing personality and a huge love for creating things.
6. Michael Zhang (@petapixel) – Sometimes content from several sites on the Internet can all run together, but Michael manages to find new content that is relevant and equally exciting.
7. Jim Goldstein (@jimgoldstein) – Jim is a landscape photographer residing in San Francisco.
8. Scott Kelby (@ScottKelby) – Scott Kelby shoots many things, but it’s his excellent Photoshop tutorial blog that drew me into his work.
9. Art Wolfe (@artwolfe) – Art has truly traveled to the edge of the world to capture some amazing travel photographs.
10. Tom Lowe (@timescapes) – Tom may be a stretch to put on a list of photographers because he shoots mostly timelapse videos, but his videos are mind boggling, and a timelapse video is essentially just several thousand photos, right?
