As hobbyists photographers, we would spend countless hours sifting through the hundreds of thousands of posts on old blogs and forums that were outdated and disorganized to try and find our next photo adventure. We were frustrated every time we'd click on a location tag on social media only to be dropped in the middle of a giant national park. And we weren't interested in spending exorbitant amounts of money on location scouting software. Finally, we said enough is enough.
Anthology makes finding picturesque locations a breeze. Our free to use platform helps you discover new places that you didn't even know existed, while giving you the tools and incentives to share new Points of Interest with the community.
So what's with the name? Well, at every single one of our Points of Interest you'll find a storybook feed of images from those who visited there. You're not only sharing your experiences on our platform, you're building each location's digital Anthology!
