Back in 2016, I started writing articles for the Depositphotos blog with one idea in mind. Back then, it was important to create a platform to unite creatives from different fields – to share knowledge, inspire, and motivate those interested in photography and design.

Our team worked together to share our passion for the arts with the hope of building a community around the things we value. We created blog projects, special image collections, interviewed artists from around the world, released trends, started our monthly digests and went on to do great things with every year.

In all these efforts, the Depositphotos blog was listed as one of the top photography blogs by Pixpa, TheHub, Detailed, Feedspot, Photodoto, PhotoBlog, Nostopsigns, JoinDesign, and many others. At one point we even had a little virtual medal from Feedspot to remember the small milestones we’ve made.

The Depositphotos Blog today

Many of you have refreshed your tab a few weeks ago and noticed the lovely transformation of the blog today. Here’s a rare picture of what our blog looked like before, and what it’s like now.

It wasn’t just a visual transformation. The Depositphotos blog has grown to cover the topics of marketing, business, design, stock photography, and creative projects. And there’s more to come!

The blog lives on in the spirit of Depositphotos. I hope that everyone finds a little bit of themselves in our content, discovers answers to their questions, learns something new with unexpected topics, and leaves the pages only to come back the next day.
