Photography Recommendations

Here are a few sites that have helped me immensely in learning photography, promoting myself, and staying inspired. In talking to people who are just starting out, I’ve heard about other photographers guarding their sources (perhaps out of fear of greater competition) and I’ve always found that very sad. So I hope these will help some people as they’ve helped me.

  • Wonderful forum and great galleries for inspiration: Photo.net
  • Business Cards (great cause you can use your own photos): Moo.com
  • Photo Printing (cheap & excellent quality): Adorama Pix

Finally, I’d like to throw in some of my photography inspirations and heroes: Carlton Ward, Jr., Clyde Butcher, John Moran, Franz LantingChristina Mittermeier, Art Wolfe, and Henri Cartier-Bresson, to name just a few…

Hope this has been of some help & as I find more goodies, I’ll be sure to add them here. And if you have any websites that have helped you out, please let me know in the comments. Cheers!

  1. Thanks for your recommendation re printing at AdoramaPix – though curious as to why you haven’t yet tried Adorama photobooks?

  3. Hello!
    I just randomly end up in one of your web pages as I am trying to get some nice landscape images from Africa. I loved your photos and also had the impression that you have a nice personality.

    I would like to know if you would allow me to use one of your images to place on a website that I prefer not quoting as it is still under construction but can advance it will be dealing with African languages. Needless to say that I would be happy quoting your website in the form of “image tooltip” (or watermarking it with your name: Alexis Meyer) because at present I am not in a financial position to offer you money. The truth is that I am reluctant to use one of your images without your previous consent.

    Cheers

    1. Hi
      Of course you can use one of my photos from Africa. And thank you for giving the photo a credit – as well as for asking. No worries about payment, just please send me a link to the site when it’s up.

      Thank you!
      Cheers
      Alex
