Analysis of the TOP100:

Top 10 – One photographer beats all the others

With 2,723 WPI, American Brandon Stanton leads the TOP100 once again in 2018. Surprisingly, two Canadian photographers are among the ten most popular photographers in the world for the first time. Wildlife photographer Thomas Vijayan enters directly at the number 2 spot with 1059 points. Paul Nicklen reaches 6th place, also with wildlife photography and with 420 WPI.

Photographers from 19 different countries in the TOP100

Once again in 2018, the majority of photographers (86%) are from North America and Europe. The leading nation in the TOP100 is still the USA with 41 photographers, followed by Germany with 15 and the UK with 12. France and India each have five photographers in the current ranking.

New entries and highest climbers 2018

Two Canadian wildlife photographers managed direct entry in the Top 10 in 2018. In total, five new entries made it directly into the rankings of the 20 most popular photographers in the world. The British landscape photographer Dave Zdanowicz was the highest climber, jumping 139 positions to the number 69 spot with 66 WPI and ranking in the TOP100 for the first time.

Instagram is the most important social media channel

Instagram will be the most important social media platform for photographers in 2018, replacing Facebook. 99 of the TOP100 photographers use Instagram and thus reach an average of 30,000 more fans than via Facebook. In the 2017 survey, Facebook was still the most important social media platform.

The Web Popularity Index (WPI)

The Web Popularity Index (WPI) takes into consideration the three key factors of the social web: reach, interaction with users, and external references. Thousands of social media and web indicators for popular photographers of the present day were collected during the survey period and evaluated for the creation of the index.

We analysed: fans, followers and subscribers on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Flickr, Tumblr, 500px and other social networks, ratios for interaction with subscribers, fans and followers, as well as references for the photographers’ publications.
