Photographers Go Hyperlocal


Placeblogger.org is a new site that aggregates local blogs, both in the United States and worldwide. It’s part of a relatively new trend focusing on hyperlocal information and community-building. The photographic equivalent of Placeblogger might be Photobloggers.org, which is part of Photoblogs.org.

While the ultimate goal of Photobloggers.org is to create a global RSS feed of all the local photoblogger sites, it currently lists the local sites individually on its home page.

The existing Photobloggers cities, in alphabetical order, are:

Barcelona, Spain;
Budapest, Hungary;

Chicago, U.S.;

Edmonton, Canada;

Houston, U.S.;

London, U.K.;

Los Angeles, U.S. (unclear whether it’s still being updated);

New York City, U.S;

Paris, France;

San Francisco, U.S;

St. Louis, U.S. (site not presently up);

Toronto, Canada;

Vancouver, Canada.

The Photoblogs.org wiki also lists cities where local photographers have indicated they’d like to create a group. U.S. cities on this list include Boston, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, D.C., Miami, San Diego and Seattle.

Non-U.S. cities include Bandung, Indonesia; Bordeaux, France; Brisbane, Australia; Calgary, Canada; Edinburgh, Scotland; Geneva, Switzerland; Glasgow, Scotland; Harderwijk, The Netherlands; Hyderabad, India; Jakarta, Indonesia; Kathmandu, Nepal; Kyiv, Ukraine; Mallorca; Melbourne, Australia; Mexico City, Mexico; Montreal, Canada; Mumbai, India; Munich, Germany; Nagoya, Japan; Oxford, England; Rennes, France; Perth, Australia; Singapore; Stockholm, Sweden; Sydney, Australia; Tehran, Iran; Utrecht, the Netherlands; Vienna, Austria; Seoul, Korea; and Tirol, Austria.
