THE PHOTOBLOG ALLIANCE IS AN INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATIVE PHOTO BLOG
The Web is a big place. We can do more together than individually
WE ARE A PHOTO BLOG
The Photoblog Alliance was launched in September 2010 by Brian Haferkamp, an American photographer living in Chicago, Illinois, USA. We encourage serious photographers to submit an image (or images) to the blog. We have an open submissions policy and no limit on the number of images that contributors can post. All submissions are made through a form on our website and are reviewed by the editor of the blog.
WE HELP PHOTOGRAPHERS
One of our primary goals is to help photographers market their images and services to new audiences. By leveraging the social networks of the Photoblog Alliance website and our international contributors, we connect our contributors to visitors they otherwise would not have access to. As a group, we make a conscious effort to help each other in our photography journeys.
We believe that our blog is our greatest asset in achieving our goal to help photographers around the world. Our strategy revolves around the idea of home bases and outposts, as outlined by Chris Brogan and Darren Rowse. PhotoblogAlliance.com is our home base and our social network presences are the outposts. You can find and connect with us on these social networks.
We are on page one of Google for our targeted keywords and we’re going after even broader terms to drive more traffic. Our monthly newsletter, as well as updates on new images and blog articles posted to PhotoblogAlliance.com, are sent to our email subscribers.

ABOUT THE EDITOR
Brian Haferkamp launched the Photoblog Alliance in 2010 while living in South Korea. The site was born out of his own frustration with trying to figure out how to make it as a photographer in the digital age. Overwhelmed and bombarded with the fact that he was a very small needle in a massive haystack, he decided to test the theory that “all of us can do more than one of us.”
Brian lives and works in Chicago, Illinois, with his wife and two daughters. He spends his time working on the Photoblog Alliance and his other web project, free web design and consulting for non-profit organizations and small businesses. If you’re a photographer and you want some advice or help setting up a portfolio site and/or blog, visit Brian’s personal site.
