500px is hands-down the place I go to for landscape photography inspiration. As you build your community there and start to follow people, you see your “Flow” page every time you visit filled with photos from that community as well as others related to what you’re interested in. Whenever I have a few minutes, I just surf around and look at the work. Sometimes, just to see some beautiful landscape photography, but other times it’s where I go to research locations that I may be traveling to.
Anyway, I figured I’d name off the top 5 photographers that I think (my personal preferences) you should check out on 500px. In no particular order, here goes:
Marc Adamus (http://500px.com/MAPhoto) – I’ve been following Marc’s work there for quite a while. He’s active on 500px. He often posts and comments about his photos, and his work is incredible. Lots of variety, and his composition and post-processing is freakin’ perfect. Follow this guy!
Tula Top (http://500px.com/tulatop) – I’m a huge fan of the Pacific Northwest and especially the Portland area. I love waterfalls! Which is why I probably favorite his work often on 500px. There’s a ton of waterfalls in the Portland area, and he has stunning photos of so many of them.
Andy Lee (http://500px.com/andrewjlee) – I love this guy’s work. It’s dark, moody, monochromatic and very different from my personal shooting style. It’s gorgeous, but very different from me, which is why it’s odd I put him in my top 5. But that’s the funny thing about photography. Sometimes, you just like the photo and you can’t explain why.
