Hi Friends,

Welcome to the relaunch of whyilovephilly.com – an artist collective featuring thousands of stunning Philly photos highlighting all the reasons why we LOVE Philly.

Whyilovephilly.com has two missions: highlight the things that make Philadelphia special and support the artists who do their part to tell the city’s story. Browse our carefully curated collection of over 2000+ stunning Philly photos and you’ll see exactly what we’re talking about. And don’t forget to share your Philly pride by sharing images or ordering a print your favorite photo.

About Us

In addition to wanting to share the reasons why we love Philly, our goal is to highlight those in the Philly photographer community that create meaningful work. We provide resources, business infrastructure, signal boosting, and revenue-sharing for all proceeds. Any photographer interested in joining is encouraged to apply.

As of launch, we have 2 founding contributors:

About Me

My name is Cory J Popp and I’ve been working as a filmmaker in photographer in Philadelphia for the last 4 years. In that time I’ve made dozens of incredibly fun Philly videos, worked with some of Philly’s most iconic brands, and even had my videos show up on ABC Studios blockbuster tv show ‘How to Get Away with Murder’. If its not already obvious, I LOVE Philly.

More About Why I Love Philly

Whyilovephilly is artist collective dedicated to spreading Philly love and pride.

Philadelphia is FILLED with incredible people, places, stories, talent, character, SOUL, and too damn much of it is unseen on a daily basis. Our mission is highlight the things that make Philadelphia so special, to give love and attention to the people and places that deserve it.
