Who is The Phoblographer?
Founded in 2009, the Phoblographer is a story of a few driven individuals working to change the way we think about cameras. It started with taking the cameras and lenses out of the lab and into the field. We’re all passionate photographers. And we love to shoot our daily lives with the photo gear we purchase. So it just makes sense for us to incorporate it into our lives. That’s what our staff does.
The website has bridged the gap between the art world and the tech world for over a decade. We do this holistically in all our content as much as possible. It starts with our reviews. By applying it in our gear tests, we work to remind photographers that there’s still a passionate, creative person behind the camera. So you have to work to get the shot. This is further translated through in our various interviews and series’ like Creating the Photograph. What’s more, we’ve worked with partners over the years to uplift the voices of women, POCs, disabled photographers, and others. Our Editor in Chief and Founder Chris Gampat is legally blind. And through Phoblographer, we’ve worked to motivate and inspire passionate photographers everywhere. Nothing should hold you back from getting the shot!
Our founder has been involved in every aspect of the company’s growth and development over the years. He cares, and it shows holistically through the content. Part of the site’s strength is our incredibly strong Search Engine Optimization. We’ve applied strict ethics to our stories and earn the trust of Google and our readers. Everything from our word choices, stories we tackle, and our image selection is meticulously chosen.
In January 2023, the Phoblographer was granted a Minority Owned Business Certification.
What Does The Phoblographer Do?
The Phoblographer publishes on our website daily. Our content varies from thought pieces, opinions, reviews, tutorials, roundups, deals, and more. We strive to not deliver the same content and have different conversations from everyone else. Our posts are transmitted out to our Facebook page, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Flipboard. They also go out into The Daily Phoblographer: our newsletter sent every evening. Most of our stories are translated and read by an AI algorithm. You can listen to it on our website. We’re streaming daily on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Pocket Casts, and Spotify! Lastly, you can tune in once a week to our Live Show called Pro Camera Reviews. We talk about big subjects in the Photo World on this show. It’s simulcast to Facebook. And later on in the week, you can catch it on YouTube and Flipboard TV.
We interview photographers on the Inside the Photographer’s Mind Podcast as well. Below is a screenshot of some of our audio podcast stats as done through our website. There’s a lot more where this comes from though.

“The Phoblographer is a dichotomy that works well for advertising. It pairs a forward-thinking platform and understanding of modern distribution channels with a more old-fashioned business interaction approach. The upshot as a client reaches on all channels the audience is found, and a team that is flexible and personal.”Kishore Sawh, Pixel Shift

I’ve had the pleasure to partner with The Phoblographer on events, press coverage, sponsored content, and advertising. Chris and the team offer creative opportunities that other sites do not and unique channels to reach audiences.
