Finding a photographer can be a difficult, time-consuming task, but the 500px photographer directory is a tool that can significantly lessen one's workload when it's time to consult a pro. The directory, which comes from the Toronto-based photography social media site, gathers nearly 50,000 professional photographers hailing from 191 countries around the world.

Googling for photographers is often a fruitless task, as it can take a long time to sift through websites and figure out which photographer has the right skill set for a given job. The 500px photographer directory offers simple sorting features, allowing users to narrow their search by city and style. It's then easy to click through the options and pick a photographer with a body of work that is most appealing.

For photographers, adding oneself to the directory opens up a new avenue for business, which is a boon in such a competitive field.
