Wotfoto.com is a website for photographers. It lists photography events, venues and professional and influential phototographers.
The Wotfoto website evolved from research done while we were working on ‘How to Take Great Photographs’. Published in 2015, the book featured the work of a range of successful photographers with descriptions of how and why they created their images. During the book’s research we amassed much information about photography and influential photographers – most of whom we did not have space for in the book. Rather than seeing this research lost, we decided to use it as the nucleus for a new website.
From the outset the website was designed to make it as simple as possible for users to search for information. We have made it easy too for photographers or galleries to take ownership and manage their listings on the site.
The site is for anyone interested in photography. You can to search for information about a wide range of professional, influential and historically important photographers. You can use the Search feature to focus on photographers who match your interests. You could search for Landscape photographers, or could narrow down your search, for example, to look for photographers who specialise in Street photography, and are based in New York.
You will also be able to search for photography-based events that are coming soon, or are taking place near you. If you register on the website you can select to have automated reminders when favourite photographers or venues have news – for example, when they have a new exhibition or a workshop.
