Hello New Friend!
ShutterCal is a calendar based daily photo journal.
A community where thoughtful people gather to document their best photo of each day.
ShutterCal: A Love Story
ShutterCal is a calendar-based daily photo journal community built and maintained by four friends. It all began as a personal photography experiment in the winter of 2007, but as our friends kept telling us they wanted to join in, so released a public beta site in January 2008.
The concept was, and still is, simple: we give you a calendar, link you to the site’s community, and encourage you to document your life with a daily photo. The image and subject matter are up to you, but the idea is clear — documenting one image each day will leave you with an impressive visual history of your life.
As time passes, you’ll have a unique window into the memories and events of every single day. You’ll remember people you met, places you’ve been, and things you did. Your photography skills will improve naturally with daily practice, and — best of all — you'll receive the encouragement of others involved in their own calendar projects within ShutterCal's friendly community.
Since 2008, we've grown to become the leading dedicated daily-photo platform. We continue our quest to encourage people to become better photographers and documentarians of their lives, and help community members make the most of their daily photo projects.

We love hearing from everyone.
