When a site is so good that I want to post every page to my archive of links it ends up here instead. These are the websites I come back to time and again, always checking in to see what's new.

Photographers

A portfolio site is an opportunity for photographers to show off their work in a way that social media never could. Much like a good stack of coffee table books, this list of sites gets me thinking about new and different photos I could be taking. Many of the photographers here make the work that I aspire to.

Finn Beales

I can confidently say that Finn's work was the first that made me say — "I want to make photos like that!" — his images are cleverly ordered and laid out to tell a story without any words.

Bret Curry

A director and photographer known for his dynamic portraits often shot with a 28mm lens. I have a tendency to desaturate my images and Bret's work is the perfect remedy.

Ben Read

Ben's work epitomises the documentary style, making the journeys he takes you on feel real and true to life. His cutaways to the smaller details in a scene — the kind that you only notice by being completely immersed in what's around you — create depth and intimacy.

Andrew Paynter

I stumbled onto Andrew's work through Hiut Denim who gave him carte blanche and agreed to only use him for their annual yearbooks. His book, DO:PHOTO details the process of a photographer who is all about his connection to his subject.

Emily Maye

Emily was the point of reference for a brief I received recently, and her work for Tracksmith and Rapha instantly became my point of reference too.

Grace T.S.P

Here's a photographer that never shies away from high contrast, strong colours or bad weather. If taking good photos is all about putting interesting stuff in front of your lens, then Grace is the benchmark for taking her camera along on her adventures.
