Shutter Sisters began in January 2008 as a collaborative photo blog—written for women, by women—which quickly grew into a trusted source of photographic inspiration. Founded by Tracey Clark, Shutter Sisters has, over the years, been cultivated by a handful of extraordinary women; storytellers who through images and words have helped build a warm, welcoming, and inclusive global community. Through this collaborative spirit, Shutter Sisters has gathered and connected women with a passion for photography, creating an authentic and true sisterhood that transcends even the expansive borders of the web.
From numerous creative projects, a book called Expressive Photography: Shutter Sisters Guide to Shooting From the Heart, thriving online and mobile communities, live events and gatherings, and more, Shutter Sisters continues to honor and celebrate what women in photography are doing every day in their own unique and inspiring way. If you love photography like we do, then you are a Shutter Sister!
As we continue to grow and evolve, we are excited to be sharing a new photography platform where we can widen the circle of community that shares our crazy awesome love for photography. Coming together with Camera Men at Our Collective is an exciting and refreshing opportunity to explore and share a connection through essays and images from both women and men who believe in the immeasurable power photography.
We invite you to join us as we continue to shoot, share, and connect—cameras in hand.
These are the women who helped to create and shape Shutter Sisters, from founding contributors to most recent collaborators.
