Feature Shoot showcases the work of international emerging and established photographers who are transforming the medium through compelling, cutting-edge projects. With contributing writers from all over the world and a wide range of interests, we feature contemporary work in all genres of photography: fine art, documentary, portrait, still life, landscape and more. We believe that photography is a powerful mode of storytelling, and share works that have a strong narrative vision. Started in 2008 by Alison Zavos, Feature Shoot has now amassed an archive of over 4,000 posts of exceptional photography from around the globe.

In addition to running daily posts about new and ongoing photographic series, we also run exclusive interviews with artists, themed group shows and reviews of current exhibitions.

We have a strong sense of professional integrity, and contact each photographer and ask permission to run their images before publishing our features. However, if you see something on Feature Shoot that’s misattributed or that you would like removed, please contact us at featureshoot(at)gmail(dot)com.
