Photoshelter is now my new selling website. I want to let the world see Wisconsin through my own eyes. Evey image that I submit to that site is copyrighted to me . Wow, I have a copyright!
I was referred to PhotoShelter by a Facebook friend who is also a professional landscape and fine arts photographer. Cheyenne Rouse lives in Scottsdale, AZ, worked as a stock photographer, and has developed her own style for images and life in the American Southwest. PhotoShelter allowed for customers or clients to order directly of the site and get prints or enlargements in the size and the style of their own choosing. There is no hassle on my part. All I have to do is draw customers to the site.
Right now I am using Facebook to call attention to it. There is a cost to this, but the webinars are free and give me a chance to hear from experts.
The last webinar was a conversation between the head of PhotoShelter and two magazine photo editors. I’ve dealt with these people before. In fact, it was a photo editor by the name of Kristen McClarty who sort of encouraged me into getting a computer and an e-mail account. She simply got tired of playing phone tag with me!
Other people were after me to develop my own photo website. That too took a while. Now, there is a site online with my name on it and people can shop and order what they see when they fall in love with my work. Prints can be made in metallic and even canvass wraps are available! PS. Now the themes match!
This is fine arts photography. The fine arts are there fore people to support and enjoy!
