What is PhotoShelter and why do I use it?
In case you don’t know, or even if you do….
PhotoShelter is an amazing website for photographers looking to store large amounts of photographs in archives on-line, sell their work as stock photography, and even to set up a portfolio. I use PhotoShelter to do all of these things. It is quick and easy to upload photos, add information, and set everything up.
I have another site where I sell my photography as prints, books, and cards… But with PhotoShelter I can put up even more photos and I am guaranteed a high quality image on my PhotoShelter website – the color quality is astounding! I do not lose color with the website images and I refer people to my PhotoShelter site first so they can see the quality of the photographs I take.
Plus PhotoShelter provides an incredible source of information. The newsletters are full of information about the photographer community, tips on how to improve your site and your photos, stories of success, and even news outside of the immediate community of PhotoShelter. I have also found out about portfolio reviews, industry headlines, and partnerships/collaborations between PhotoShelter and other companies through these newsletters. I have participated in portfolio reviews and found access to marketing ideas and tools that I did not know about before.
