Top Photo Guides from 2012

It's hard to believe nearly a year has gone by since we announced, and since 2012 has also passed by the wayside we thought it would be nice to look back on some of the most popular photo guides over the past year.

San Francisco, California

If you're traveling to the city by the bay, let photographer +Toby Harriman guide you to some of the best San Francisco photo spots. Or if you are specifically interested in the best vantage point of the Golden Gate Bridge or capturing the architecture of San Francisco, he's got guides for those too. If the streets are your interest, photographer +Brian Bach Sørensen shares the best murals of the Mission District in SF.

Washington, DC

Photographer +Brandon Kopp  provides several off the beaten path photo spots in his guide to the Hidden Gems in Washington, DC. Brandon also shares some of his favorite spots around the DC area within an hour and a half drive.

Melbourne, Australia

Visit the second most populous city in Australia and photograph the sights with a photo guide to Melbourne by photographer +Keith Broad. Keith shares some terrific architecture spots, street photography, skyline vantage points, and more.

Paris, France

A few photo guides rose to the top for photographing Paris, the city of light. Photographer +Clement Mesnier offers over 50 beautiful Paris photo spots featuring well known spots such as the Pyramide du Louvre and perhaps lesser known spots as well. In addition you can take a look at the comprehensive photo guide to Paris provided by photographer +Maurice Loy for photo ideas and inspiration on capturing this beautiful city.

Seattle and Vicinity

The very talented photographer +Dave Morrow shares some photo spots around Seattle and the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Take a look at his guide for some tips on photographing the Seattle skyline, a few spots in the Columbia River Gorge, and elsewhere in the beautiful northwest.

U.S. National Parks

Over the year there have been a number of photo guides to the U.S. national parks added to the site. Some of the most popular guides have been to Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, Crater Lake National Park, and Yosemite.

Thanks for making 2012 a great year, and for sharing your photo spots on ShutterGuides! And if you have some spots to add, it's quick and easy! We're especially on the lookout for photo guides to Chicago, New York, Boston, Los Angeles, San Diego, London, Rome, and anywhere else you've got photo spots for. Here's to 2013!
