Photographers looking for a social network to call their own need look no further than 500px, a social media site tailored specifically to photographers. This unique network was founded by photographers Ian Sobolev and Oleg Gutsol.

500px lets you create your own profile, add friends and follow other photographers. What makes this website great for shutterbugs is its rating system, which lets you put your work up for review from people who actually know what they' are talking about.

500px has a straightforward layout and design that even this photography neophyte found interesting and engaging. Whether you are a professional photographer, or just a person who appreciates a good photograph, you should definitely check out 500px. I am hoping against hope that my Facebook friends who feel the need to consistently take over my newsfeed with their work read this.
