PopPhoto Magazine just ranked the 30 most populous US cities by their photo-friendliness. It is not a ranking of the most photogenic US cities, but photo-friendly cities. The editors based their ranking on 10 factors that matter to photographers such as the average percentage of sunny days a year, the number of museums and galleries that show photography, and the cost of visiting, etc. They even counted private security firms, since they’ve found that the more rent-a-cops, the harder it can be to take pictures in public.
The ranking will appear on May 2009 issue of PopPhoto Magazine but it is currently available online. Based on the weighted scores of 10 categories, Denver, CO has been ranked as the most photo-friendly city while Detroit, MI is at the bottom of the list.
