Flickr Favorites Analyzer

My friend Ruan Niemann (ruanniemann on Flickr) turned me on to a great new site that can analyze your Flickr Faves for you, Tafoni’s Flickr Favorite’s Explorer. The site will basically look at either your last 500 favorited shots (or even up to your last 20,000 favorited shots or all your favorites whichever is less) and then group them by user.

This is a helpful way to find people whose work you might be favoriting but maybe not fully realizing just how much you love their work. Now what would even be slicker would be a version of this that worked in reverse. That showed who was favoriting the most of *your* photos.

Now I favorite *a ton* on Flickr. I spend hours every week looking at work by other great photographers and fave each and every one that I love. For a while I think I had the most faves on Flickr. But then Sir Billy Wilson passed me up. I’ve got 85,320 photos marked favorite on Flickr to date. This has been the cumulative work of over five heavy years of Flickr use. Billy Wilson by the way now has over 142,000 faves.

My top 25 photographers I’ve faved out my last 20,000 faves (these are some of the super talents on Flickr by the way, also a number of neon sign and graffiti shooters):

1. Jeremy Brooks (those are his shots up top there)
2. Suzy Sue
3. Troy Holden
4. Tom Spaulding
5. Torbakhopper
6. The Real Devil Doll
7. Invisible Cirkus
8. Roadside Pictures
